Toronto Raptors DFS Spin

Kyle Lowry returned to action on Wednesday and hit 4-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists in 35 minutes of a 114-103 win over the Nets. Lowry had been resting for 10 days but the Raptors brought back all the regulars tonight and got a big win over the Nets. The Raptors are only a 1/2 game back of the Wizards for the No. 10 seed and a shot at a play-in series, so it will be interesting to see if they keep playing the regular in hopes of making a playoff run.

New York Knicks DFS Spin

Julius Randle hit 11-of-21 shots, 6-of-8 3-pointers and 12-of-13 free throws for 40 points, 10 rebounds, six dimes and a steal in 40 minutes of Wednesday's overtime 137-127 win over the Hawks. This was a big game for both teams but the Hawks lost Trae Young to an ankle injury and the Knicks ran away with it in overtime. None of Randle's gaudy stats were even season highs and the All-Star continues to roll for the Knicks. This was his second 40-point game over his last four played and the Knicks have now won eight straight games and leapfrogged the Hawks for the No. 4 seed with tonight's win. The Knicks completed a season sweep of the Hawks for just the fourth time in history.
