Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 27 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes during a 117-114 win over the Blazers on Friday. The Jazz almost lost to another extremely shorthanded team on a road back-to-back set, and they got some major help from the refs with a bad missed goaltending call. Bogdanovic is rolling in February with a 49/40/85 shooting line for his 21.7 points per game, so keep him locked into your lineup.

Houston Rockets Fantasy Spin

James Harden made just 3-of-10 from the field for 12 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Lakers during a 121-111 win on Thursday. It was one of those Russ Westbrook games to cut Harden's productivity down in a very tough matchup for him. Things should be looking up for him based on how much of a stat-stuffer he's been without Clint Capela this year. Per 36, Harden sits at 40.3 points, 7.5 boards, 6.5 dimes, 1.9 steals, 1.0 blocks and 5.2 treys. He should be in the mix for the top spot going forward, and he will likely destroy the Suns on Friday

NBA Prediction

Even though the under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams and is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Houston, I still like the over. The over is 7-1 in the Jazz’s last eight road games is 5-2 in their last seven games when listed as a road underdog and has cashed in nine of their last 13 games overall. When playing on only one day of rest, the over is 20-8 in Utah’s last 28 games as well. Granted, the under has been profitable in recent Houston games, but we know the Rockets can score at will so I feel good about fading those trends as well.
