Denver Nuggets DFS Spin

Nikola Jokic had a 21-point, 11-rebound double-double in Wednesday's 109-82 win over the Heat. The Heat were missing Jimmy Butler (COVID-protocol), Tyler Herro (neck) and Goran Dragic (groin) in this one, and the Nuggets took full advantage of the talent disparity, absolutely crushing them defensively. Jokic added one 3-pointer, three assists, one block and one turnover in his 34 minutes of play, and he finished 9-of-14 from the field and 2-of-2 from the stripe. His co-star, Jamal Murray, finished with a team-high plus/minus rating of plus-30 on his way to 14 points (4-of-11 FG, 4-of-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two treys, one steal and one turnover across 36 minutes.

San Antonio Spurs DFS Spin

DeMar DeRozan was nearly perfect in Wednesday's win over the Celtics, going 7-of-8 from the field, 2-of-2 from distance and 5-of-6 from the stripe for 21 points over 34 minutes. This was a nice bounce-back performance for DeRozan after he was held to just nine points on 3-of-7 shooting his last time out, and he added five rebounds, seven assists and three turnovers while he was out there. Dejounte Murray had a double-double in the win, finishing with 11 points (5-of-11 FG, 1-of-2 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 36 minutes.
