New York Knicks DFS Spin
RJ Barrett had one of his best games of the season in a 91-84 win over the Magic, scoring 22 points on 9-of-14 from the field. He also hit a perfect 4-of-4 from the line, adding 10 rebounds, four assists and one block for his third double-double of the season. Barrett had six of his points in the final six minutes, helping the Knicks win their second straight and improving his team 7-8 on the season. Sure he has his flaws on the stat sheet, but Barrett looks night and day compared to last season and will continue to be an excellent source of points, rebounds and dimes. Julius Randle notched 21 points with 17 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers, but only hit 5-of-19 from the field and 9-of-13 from the line.

Draymond Green was the second-leading table-setter tonight, and he finished with nine points, six assists, one rebound, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 26 minutes.
