Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin
Kawhi Leonard shot 12-of-24 from the field and 7-of-7 from the foul line in Friday’s loss to Denver, finishing with 36 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes. Leonard did what he usually does on most night for the Clippers, leading the way offensively while also racking up numbers in the rebounds and steals categories as well. And with Friday’s effort he’s now scored 30 points or more in seven of the Clippers’ ten games this postseason.
Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Nikola Jokic played 40 minutes in Friday’s win over the Clippers, posting a line of 22 points (9-of-17 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers. After being limited to 15 points in Game 1, Jokic has now scored 22 or more in each of the last four games. If there’s been a negative in this series for the Nuggets big man it’s the turnover count, as he racked up six Friday night and now has a total of 23 for the series. By comparison Jokic had a total of 16 in Denver’s first round series against Utah, which went seven games. That being said, even with the occasionally high turnover tally he’s still the best center in fantasy hoops.
Clippers vs. Nuggets Game 6 Betting Predictions
The under has cashed in every game in this series and when it hasn’t hit, the final score pushed when it came to the total. That said, I like the over tonight. The over is 4-0-1 in the Clippers’ last five games coming off a straight up loss and I see Kawhi and Co. turning it up offensively in order to finish the Nuggets off and get ready for LeBron and the Lakers, who sent the Rockets home last night. The over is also 9-4-1 in the Clippers last 14 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest and is 5-2-1 in the Nuggets’ last eight games coming off a win.
