Phoenix Suns DFS Spin
Chris Paul notched 22 points (8-of-16 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three triples in 38 minutes of a loss to Boston on Thursday. The Suns had won 13 of their 15 previous games but fell flat vs. Boston. Perhaps fatigue was a factor on the second leg of the back-to-back, but Paul’s fantasy managers should simply be over the moon that the veteran continues to be one of the most reliable PGs in fantasy despite his age with just one missed game all season. He’s on pace for a top-24 campaign and his arrival in Phoenix has made them a legitimate contender.
Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Kevin Durant (bruised left thigh) is probable to play vs. Phoenix on Sunday. This confirms coach Steve Nash's recent comment that Durant's return this weekend was "very possible," and barring a setback during shootaround he should be ready to go. Jeff Green and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot should see their minutes curtailed as a result of KD's return. Brooklyn may take it easy with his minutes but it appears safe to get Durant back in active lineups.
Suns vs. Nets Betting Prediction
The Suns are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 meetings with the Nets and are 1-3-1 against the number in their last five games overall.

Brooklyn is also 14-6 ATS in its last 20 games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
