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.

Golden State Warriors DFS Spin

Stephen Curry had a 26-point, 11-rebound double-double in Wednesday's 121-99 win over the Spurs. Curry got his points efficiently, going 10-of-17 from the field and 2-of-2 from the stripe and he added four triples, seven dimes and four turnovers in his 31 minutes of floor time. As a team, the Dubs handed out another 31 dimes in this one, matching their total from Monday's victory over the Lakers, and they're now 4-0 this season when dishing at least 30 assists. 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.
