Washington Wizards DFS Spin
Russell Westbrook shot 9-of-19 from the field and 7-of-15 from the line for 27 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds, four steals, two triples and four turnovers vs. the Clippers on Thursday. He is no longer resting, the Wizards have won eight of their last 11 games and Westbrook is averaging a triple-double in that span. Sure he's only shooting 44% from the field and 50% from the line in that span with 4.7 turnovers, but assuming you're punting one or two of those categories, you should be pretty happy with the recent production. With the Wizards suddenly in the playoff race, it will be interesting to see if they hold onto Bradley Beal through the deadline -- if they are competitive they will be less likely to dial back Westbrook down the stretch.
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin
Ja Morant went off again on Thursday vs. the Bucks, scoring 35 points (11-of-25 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs) with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three triples in 39 minutes. That's back-to-back games with 35 points for Ja, only this time the Grizzlies fell short vs. the Bucks, ending a two-game winning streak. Ja will head into the break with some serious momentum, and with the Grizzlies fighting for a playoff spot, all signs point to a monster second half for one of the best young PGs in the NBA.
