Charlotte Hornets Fantasy Spin
Kemba Walker made 9-of-17 from the field for 22 points during a 118-107 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, seven assists, fur steals, one turnovers and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes. His fantasy owners needed him to come up big with just two games this week, so at least he came through here. His steals are the most since Dec. 9, his seven dimes match his best output in 2019, and shockingly it's just the first time he's been over 50% from the field in 2019. Maybe this will get him going after a rough month, but the best news is that he is likely staying put at the deadline.
Milwaukee Bucks Fantasy Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo had a monster game vs. the Mavericks on Monday with 31 points, 15 rebounds, five assists, one triple and five turnovers. He was 10-of-20 from the field and 10-of-12 from the line, but didn't have any steals or blocks. Still, this is a ridiculous line and it's his seventh career game with at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and five assists. That's five more than every other Buck for the past 30 years. The Bucks still lead the NBA in wins and have won five straight games.
