San Antonio Spurs DFS Spin
DeMar DeRozan went 10-of-17 from the field and 2-of-2 at the stripe for 22 points in Monday’s loss to the Jazz. DeRozan added one rebound, six assists, three steals and one block in his return from the rest day, and as a bonus for those in 9-cat formats, he finished tonight’s game without a single turnover. The end result was still a fourth consecutive loss for San Antonio, though, and they’re currently only 2.5 games ahead of the Pelicans for the No. 10 seed and final play-in spot out West.
Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Rudy Gobert double-doubled as he dismantled the Spurs on Monday, tallying 24 points, 15 rebounds, one assist, two steals, three swats and three turnovers in 30 minutes. Gobert only had one block across 34 minutes on Saturday, but he got back to his elite shot-swatting ways as he dominated the Spurs tonight. He finished 10-of-14 from the floor and 4-of-7 at the stripe, and with the Jazz notching another win, they have briefly reclaimed their spot as the No. 1 seed out West. Bojan Bogdanovic was also impressive in the win, scoring a game-high 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting (3-of-4 FT), to go with three rebounds, two assists, two triples and three turnovers across 33 minutes.
