James Harden returned to action on Monday from a one-game rest and hit just 5-of-17 shots, 3-of-11 3-pointers and 8-of-10 free throws for 21 points, three rebounds, 10 assists and two steals with just two turnovers in 38 minutes of a 113-100 loss to the Mavericks. Harden still doesn't want to be in Houston and Luka Doncic ran circles around him tonight with a monstrous triple-double. But, as we've seen, Harden is still capable of going nuts even if his heart's not fully in it. As long as he's starting for the Rockets he should be starting for your fantasy team, obviously.

Indiana Pacers DFS Spin

Domantas Sabonis kept it going on Monday with 19 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 9-of-16 shooting in a 118-116 overtime win against the Pelicans. Sabonis is putting up ridiculous numbers thus far and is showing no signs of slowing down. He already has one triple-double this season and has flirted with another in three other games. He doesn't appear to have a weakness and his line would have been a little better tonight had he not fouled out.
