Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Kevin Durant was all over the court on Monday night, finishing with 30 points, nine rebounds, six assists and two blocks. KD hit a wide-open 3-pointer with 36.8 seconds left to give the Nets a 125-123 win over the Bucks on Monday night. He made 10-of-21 field goals, 8-of-9 free throws and two triples in the game and has now totaled 72 points and seven 3-pointers since the Nets acquired James Harden. Things will get interesting when Kyrie Irving returns to the lineup, and we're hoping it doesn't affect the top-5 value KD is providing in 9-cat right now.
Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin
Collin Sexton (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs the Nets. This is the best news we've received on Sexton in a while and it's great to see. He's missed a handful of games over the past 1-2 weeks, but the postponement of the Cavs' Sunday/Monday back-to-backs with the Wizards has actually worked out in their favor. We'll have more on Sexton and Darius Garland (shoulder; questionable) on Wednesday and hopefully, it's more good news.
