Philadelphia 76ers DFS Spin
It should be noted that Philly will be playing Brooklyn on the second night of a back-to-back on Saturday evening. The first game was a 119-108 76ers win over the Knicks in Philadelphia on Friday night. Some key players may elect to sit for Philadelphia in this game so it’s advisable to monitor the status of players like Joel Embiid and James Harden all the way up to game time.
Sixers point guard Tyrese Maxey should be available for Philadelphia on Saturday. Maxey is putting up 19.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 2.3 made three-pointers per game. For the season Maxey is shooting a solid 38.6% from deep, and he could be a nice value play if you need scoring and shooting Saturday.
Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
The Brooklyn Nets are in a state of flux right now. They’ve traded away star players Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, and a few of the players they received in that trade are questionable for Saturday’s game. Acquired in the Kevin Durant trade, both Cameron Johnson and Mikal Bridges are questionable for Saturday’s clash with the Sixers. Nets shooting guard Seth Curry has been ruled out with a thigh injury for Saturday’s contest.
Brooklyn center Nic Claxton is probable for Saturday’s game with a hamstring injury, and he should be able to help your DFS lineups in multiple ways. Claxton is putting up 13.2 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game while shooting an NBA-best 73.2% from the field this season.

76ers vs. Nets NBA Prediction
The never-ending saga of the Brooklyn Nets and their star players is officially over. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are both on different teams and Brooklyn doesn’t have to worry about pacifying either of them anymore. The Nets do still have some talented players in Nic Claxton, Joe Harris, and Spencer Dinwiddie. There’s also the matter of scoring guard Cameron Thomas who poured in over 40 points three games in a row earlier this week. I think the 76ers are hurt by the schedule here and the scrappy new-look Nets either win this game outright or come close.
