Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Draymond Green dished out eight dimes in Wednesday's 123-11 win over the Timberwolves. Green added six points (3-of-6 FG), six rebounds, two steals and four turnovers in his 30 minutes of floor time, but he yet again failed to swat a single shot, and he's only averaging 0.2 blocks on the year, which accounted for a career-low. Steve Kerr recently said that Green still is working his way into playing shape, so maybe he'll take off in a handful of weeks, but he hasn't shown many flashes of his former self this year at all.
Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Deandre Ayton hit just 2-of-7 shots for five points, 14 rebounds, a steal and four turnovers in Wednesday's 102-97 loss to the Thunder. Ayton had scored between 17 and 27 points in his previous four games and has been a rebounding machine in January. But inconsistency keeps raising its ugly head and Ayton has yet to put together a stretch of more than four great games in a row this season. He was dominated by Al Horford tonight and will try to get back on track against James Wiseman and the Warriors on Thursday night.
