Oklahoma City Thunder DFS Spin

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander returned to the lineup on Sunday and contributed 38 points (10-for-17 FGs, 17-for-19 FTs), seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in a 129-119 win over Utah. After missing five games with ankle soreness, an abdominal strain and even a stint in league protocols, SGA was finally healthy and able to play on Sunday. Though he acknowledged that he was more fatigued than usual during his postgame interview, he said the adrenaline allowed him to keep playing through it. Despite the missed time, SGA was his usual dominant self in this game, which should give fantasy managers confidence in him for the rest of the year.

Phoenix Suns DFS Spin

Kevin Durant finished with 37 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a block and three triples in Sunday’s narrow win over Dallas. Durant played his third straight game as a member of the Suns, and he turned in another solid effort. Through his trio of contests in a Phoenix uniform, KD has scored at least 20 points in every game, and his 37 points and 40 minutes are his most since joining the team. Durant and Kyrie Irving were on the court together for the first time in nearly two months, though both were sporting new jerseys in the Dallas showdown. Durant led all scorers, and he knocked down two key free throws with three seconds remaining to put Phoenix ahead for good, 130-126. He’s averaged 26.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 blocks and 2.3 triples with the Suns, and his fantasy value should continue to be elite for the rest of the season.
