Houston Rockets DFS Spin

Jalen Green led Houston with 25 points (9-for-21 FGs), two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in a 118-96 loss to Brooklyn on Tuesday. Green has never been a consistent contributor of defensive stats, so it was a nice boost for him to provide both a steal and a block in this game. He shot a decent percentage from the floor, but he shot 6-for-11 from the free throw line. He has been a 78% free throw shooter this season, so this game was certainly out of character from him. He shot 15-for-17 in his second to last game before the All-Star break, so he shouldn't hurt managers from the line moving forward.

Indiana Pacers DFS Spin

Tyrese Haliburton dominated the 76ers with 40 points (12-for-19 FGs, 11-for-12 FTs), three rebounds, 16 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in a 147-143 loss on Monday. Haliburton did everything he could to help the Pacers win both legs of the back-to-back, but he was outdueled by Joel Embiid (42 points) and James Harden (20 assists). Still, he was able to provide incredible value for fantasy managers, as he has all season. Over the past two weeks, Haliburton has been the second best fantasy asset in 9-cat leagues, which isn't surprising with how well he has played this season. He didn't have much help in this game as they now sit two games out of the play-in tournament.
