Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin

Kevin Durant notched an efficient 23 points in a 110-93 win over the Grizzlies on Monday, hitting 7-of-15 shots and 8-of-8 from the line. He added five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a triple in 33 minutes. Durant has yet to miss a game this season and is averaging nearly 36 minutes per night, but that should trend down slightly with the Warriors finally getting healthy. The only concern for his fantasy owners won't come until later in the season when coach Steve Kerr gives his studs sporadic DNPs. Stephen Curry added 20 points, seven boards and three triples, while Klay Thompson chipped in with 16 points, five boards, three assists and three steals.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Rudy Gobert scored 18 points, shooting 6-of-10 from the field and 6-of-6 from the foul line, while also tallying 13 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 32 minutes Monday vs. Houston. Gobert was coming off one of his worst efforts of the season, as he accounted for six points and 13 rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Magic in Mexico City. The 7-footer rebounded offensively, making 60% of his shots and scoring in double figures for the 28th time this season. Gobert's been quite good in non-scoring categories of late, as over the last five games he's averaging 11.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.2 steals per game.
