Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
The Nets are giving Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge the night off to rest on Wednesday against Houston. Wednesday is the second night of a back-to-back- so this doesn't come as a surprise as Brooklyn will be playing Houston, who actually has been playing great basketball as of late, and has won six straight games. With Aldridge and Durant out, Houston might be able to pick up a seventh straight win, and of Brooklyn this will mean more minutes for Bruce Brown and Paul Millsap, who both could slide into the starting lineup, but we will have a clearer update on that later on.
Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin
Trae Young hit 7-of-18 shots, four 3-pointers and 11-of-13 free throws for 29 points, seven rebounds, 11 assists, two steal and five turnovers in Monday's 121-110 win over the Wolves. The Hawks broke the franchise record for 3-pointers by two, hitting 25 of them tonight. John Collins hit three of them, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot hit a career-high seven triples, Kevin Huerter hit two, Danilo Gallinari hit four, Gorgui Dieng added three triples and Lou Williams and Delon Wright each hit one. Trae now leads the league in both points scored (657) and assists (247) this season.
