Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Kevin Durant hit 11-of-22 shots, four 3-pointers and 6-of-7 free throws for 32 points, nine rebounds, six assists, a steal and two blocks in Tuesday's 124-118 loss to the Bucks. It was a blast watching KD and Giannis Antetokounmpo going head-to-head tonight and Giannis made an unbelievable block on a shot that didn't look touchable by Durant. KD and Kyrie Irving combined to score 21 straight points at one late stretch of the game, but the Bucks secured the tie breaker over Brooklyn with tonight's win. And as it stands now, Milwaukee is just 1.5 games back of the No. 2 Nets in the East.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Spin
Luka Doncic shot 8-of-15 from the field and 2-of-5 from the foul line in Tuesday's win over the Heat, recording a line of 23 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes. While Doncic did finish two assists shy of a triple-double, it would be fair to say that he's had better nights. Luka was also responsible for a game-high seven turnovers, and he has recorded six or more in four of his last six appearances. With Kristaps Porzingis (knee) sidelined Doncic has been asked to do even more than he already was offensively, and the increased attention from opposing teams hasn't made life easier, either. He'll continue to post gaudy stat lines, but hopefully Doncic can keep the turnover tally down on a more consistent basis than he has in recent games. Turnovers weren't an issue for backup Jalen Brunson, who had just one to go along with 19 points (7-of-12 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.
