Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James scored 50 points on 18-of-25 shooting (6-of-9 3-pointers) to go with seven rebounds, six assists, one block, and three turnovers in 36 minutes of Friday’s 122-109 win over the Wizards. LeBron James is just on another level right now. On Friday he became the sixth player to ever score 50+ in consecutive home games, and the only one to do so after turning 30 years old. It was the 14th 50-point game for the King, which ties Rick Barry for sixth in NBA history. It is truly remarkable what he is doing right now, so enjoy it while we can because eventually there will be an NBA without King James, and that thought is not one that is very fun to imagine.

Phoenix Suns DFS Notes

Mikal Bridges scored 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and two triples in 38 minutes vs. the Raptors on Friday. He doesn’t miss games, he’s efficient and he has loads of 3-and-D upside. Mikal has a lot of fans in this hobby and it’s so easy to see why. In his previous five games, Mikal ranked inside the top-40 for 9-cat with 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.2 dimes, 1.6 steals and 4.8 triples. He’ll see plenty of LeBron James on Sunday.
