LeBron James shot just 6-of-16 from the floor, finishing with a season-low 17 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals in the Lakers' win on Saturday night. One game after scoring a season-high 34, Bron scored a season-low 17 but as always he filled up the box score in with boards and dimes. Though he failed to make a 3-pointer for the first time this season. Still, the Lakers cruised to a 101-90 win behind Anthony Davis' monster night and James continues to put up really good fantasy numbers at the age of 36.
Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin
Taurean Prince hit 3-of-9 shots and 2-of-5 3-pointers for nine points, five assists, one rebound, three steals, one block, and one turnover in a loss to the Celtics on Sunday. Prince provided a decent line in this lopsided game, logging a season-best three steals. Adding a block and two 3-pointers was nice, too. Prince ranks No. 162 of all players in 9-cat leagues.
