Brooklyn Nets Fantasy Spin

Caris LeVert started again on Sunday, posting 12 points (6-of-15 FGs, 0-of-1 FTs), seven assists, four rebounds and two turnovers in 32 minutes. Allen Crabbe (knee) was out this weekend and it's unclear if he'll be ready to return for Tuesday's game -- he had his troublesome knee drained on Thursday. LeVert was coming off a rough game on Saturday with just six points on 3-of-12 shooting, and his splits since the All-Star break have been lousy -- 9.6 points on 35.2% shooting, 3.9 boards, 3.1 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.1 threes. Those are all lower than his stats prior to the break and with just two games coming in Week 23, owners need to weigh their options carefully.

Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin

Harry Giles was terrific in 21 minutes off the bench Sunday, scoring 16 points on 8-of-14 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal. Giles hit a 17-foot jumper from the top of the key but the rest of his buckets came in the paint, and the Bulls' second unit had no answer for him tonight. He thrived alongside Marvin Bagley which is a terrific sight for the Kings, as well as fantasy owners. He offers little beyond FG% and rebounds, with some blocks and minimal turnovers, but benefits from the Kings' terrific schedule -- they play four games in each of the next three weeks.

NBA Betting Trends

Brooklyn

Prediction

These are two of the better “under” teams in the NBA right now. The under has cashed in seven of the Nets’ last eight games overall and in four of their last five road games. The under is also 11-2-1 in the Kings’ last 14 games coming off a win and is 6-2 in their last eight home games. In Sacramento’s last 30 games overall, the under is also 21-8-1.

Tuesday NBA Prediction: Nets/Kings under 231.5
