Indiana Pacers DFS Spin

Tyrese Haliburton recorded a line of 22 points (7-of-14 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), one rebound, 14 assists, three steals, two blocks, and three 3-pointers in Thursday's 142-138 loss to the Celtics. Indiana received quality production from their top three games, with Haliburton, Buddy Hield (18/5/2/1 with four 3-pointers), and Bennedict Mathurin (19/7/4/2 with two 3-pointers) each shooting 7-of-14 from the field. Haliburton is up to 27 double-doubles on the season, two more than he had for the entire 2021-22 campaign. He's one player many fantasy managers pegged for a breakout season at draft time, and Haliburton has delivered. He's providing top-10 value in 9-cat formats, with Hield ranked just inside the top 50.

Orlando Magic DFS Spin

Franz Wagner played 31 minutes in Thursday's 108-106 win over the Pistons, scoring 21 points (7-of-13 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) with five rebounds, one assist, and two 3-pointers. Wagner led seven Magic players in double figures Thursday night, but it has been a bit of a struggle for him over the last month fantasy-wise. The second-year forward is providing 20th-round value during that stretch, which has dropped him just outside the top 100 in season-long value. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned, but hopefully, this performance serves as a catalyst for Wagner. As well as he played, the hero on Thursday was actually Wendell Carter Jr. His tip-in of a Paolo Banchero miss as time expired gave Orlando the win, capping a night in which he tallied 12 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and two blocked shots.
