Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped 30 points, nine rebounds and three blocks in the Bucks' 125-112 win over the Nuggets. Giannis had a stellar game, making 11-of-23 field goals, 2-of-5 threes and 6-of-8 free throws in just 34 minutes. He did fail to record an assist for the first time this season, even with Jrue Holiday (health and safety) sidelined. But it was still a big game for the Greek Freak who recorded his ninth 30-point game of the year.
Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Devin Booker hit 14-of-27 shots and five 3-pointers for 36 points, five rebounds and eight assists in 35 minutes of Monday's 119-113 win over the Cavaliers. Booker had 18 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists in his previous game and he saw some more dime opportunities with Chris Paul (hamstring) in street clothes for this one. Booker's having a fun February and the Suns have won three straight games and six of their last seven, so Booker will need to keep it going if the Suns are going to keep winning games.
