Miami Heat DFS Spin
Jimmy Butler was marvelous during Sunday's 107-98 win over Portland, tallying 20 points, four rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer, four steals, two blocks and three turnovers across 36 minutes. Butler got his buckets efficiently too, finishing 7-of-13 from the field and 5-of-6 from the stripe, and he helped hold Portland to under 100 points — something Miami has done 19 times this season. Bam Adebayo was also solid in the win, scoring a game-high 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting (4-of-8 FT) to go with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 35 minutes. The Heat have now won two in a row, and they'll look to keep that streak going on Tuesday in Phoenix.
Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Devin Booker scored 27 points in a 134-106 win over the Wizards on Saturday to go with six rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and three triples in 26 minutes. The Suns were in the midst of a seven-game winning streak before falling short vs. the Clippers, but fatigue was certainly a factor, especially for Booker. "To play a game like that, to go into overtime like we did [Wednesday], then to come here and play the Clippers, it's not the best scenario for any team," Suns coach Monty Williams said. "We just didn't have the legs, and emotionally, it's draining. But I really feel like our guys have to go through that. When you get to the playoffs, those are the kind of emotions you have to learn to deal.” The Suns got back to their winning ways this evening, as Booker continues to carry his team and his fantasy managers with top-24 value in 9-cat over the last two weeks.
