Anthony Davis carved up Chicago for 38 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and a triple in Wednesday’s 121-110 win. Davis was phenomenal in this one, delivering his sixth game with at least 30 points and his seventh double-double in the month of March while leading his team to victory. After one of the worst seasons of his career in 2021-22, the Davis resurgence has been a thing of beauty in 22-23. He’s averaging career highs in rebounds (12.4) and field goal percentage (56.5) while delivering 25.9 points, 1.0 steals and 2.0 blocks a night. AD has “fallen” from his perch atop the fantasy hoops season-long leaderboard to No. 5 in per-game value, but those who took a chance on him with a second-round pick are likely celebrating a fantasy championship.
Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Spin
Karl-Anthony Towns turned in 25 points, eight rebounds, two assists and five triples Wednesday in a 107-100 loss to the Suns. He rested Monday against the Kings for the second leg of Minnesota’s back-to-back set, but KAT came out fired up Wednesday. He posted 20 points and eight boards in the first half, and Minnesota built a small lead. The Suns came charging back in the second half, and Towns disappeared, finishing with just five points and no rebounds in the third and fourth quarters. There was a lot of production left on the table in this one, but Towns will try to improve on this showing Friday when the Wolves host the Lakers.
