Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Draymond Green triple-doubled vs. the Hornets on Friday, dishing out a career-high 19 assists to go with 11 points, 12 rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in 36 minutes. What a run this has been for Draymond as he’s putting on a playmaking clinic. In his previous 11 games, Draymond was putting up top-40 numbers of 6.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 11.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks in 33.7 minutes. When he was struggling earlier this season he said he simply needed more time to play his way into shape, and now we’re finally seeing the dividends. Congrats if you acquired at a discount or held him through the rough times.

The Lakers snapped a four-game losing streak on Friday, led by LeBron James' 28 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, four steals and three blocks. The King wouldn't be denied tonight, hitting 11-of-21 shots with a pair of 3-pointers in 36 minutes. He got some much-needed help from Dennis Schroder (22 points) in addition to strong bench play led by Montrezl Harrell (17 points). Any concerns about LBJ resting have been alleviated early in the season, as he's yet to miss a game while averaging 34.8 minutes per game. We're watching greatness personified.
