Houston Rockets DFS Spin

Kevin Porter Jr. handed out a career-high 13 assists during Friday's loss to the Clippers, adding 14 points (4-of-13 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) and six rebounds in 31 minutes of action. Houston got shellacked in the second quarter, 41-10, but they hung around thanks in large part to KPJ's career night. John Wall was resting in the first half of a back-to-back, and coach Stephen Silas said the Rockets will continue that cautious approach for the rest of the season. Wall's absence opens up more on-ball minutes for KPJ, which (as tonight demonstrates) is a good thing for his fantasy value. Percentages continue to be an issue with 44.0% FGs and 68.2% FTs over the past month, and he's turning it over in bunches, but the counting stats are too alluring pass up.

Golden State Warriors DFS Spin

Stephen Curry's 32 points weren't enough vs. the Wizards on Friday in a 110-107 loss, adding six rebounds, five assists, two steals and five triples in 35 minutes. Golden State’s schedule is as easy as it gets over the next four games with matchups against the Rockets, Thunder and Cavaliers, though a game vs. Denver is sandwiched in there. The Warriors are viewing this as their turning point of the season, and Curry intends to play the second leg of this back-to-back on Saturday after recently overcoming a nagging tailbone injury. His play has really elevated too, averaging 39.0 points and 4.0 triples in his previous two games. “I think the biggest thing for me watching him is he just looks stronger, physically stronger than ever,” Steve Kerr said, also noting that this is the most confident he’s ever seen him.

Rockets vs. Warriors Betting Prediction

The Rockets have covered the spread in five of their last seven road games versus the Warriors and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games playing on no rest. The Warriors, meanwhile, are just 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games overall and are 6-22-1 at the betting window in their last 29 games when playing the second game of a back-to-back.
