Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted a full line on Wednesday with 33 points (9-for-15 FGs, 15-for-22 FTs), 14 rebounds, four assists, three steals and nine turnovers in a 107-99 win over the Nuggets. Giannis had no problem dominating Denver's second unit, but he nearly recorded a triple-double that he had no interest in putting up. He was a turnover away from 10, after he recorded a quadruple-double with 12 turnovers just six games ago. The poor free throw shooting was bad enough, but he also leads the league in turnovers per game with 4.2. The next three players on the list are Trae Young (4.1), Luka Doncic (3.7) and James Harden (3.6). They all average at least 8.6 assists, while Giannis averages just 5.3.

Indiana Pacers DFS Spin

Buddy Hield tallied 21 points (7-of-13 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, five assists, four steals, and six 3-pointers in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 126-120 loss to the Magic. Hield was one of three Pacers to score at least 20 points Wednesday night, with Bennedict Mathurin (26 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, and two 3-pointers) and Myles Turner (22 points, 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, and three 3-pointers) being the others. The points and 3-pointers Hield produced aren't a surprise, but he's now accumulated four steals in back-to-back games. Averaging 2.8 steals per game, Hield's ranked just outside the top 25 in 9-cat formats over the last week. And that recent surge is why he's now a top-50 player in season-long value.
