San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists and three steals during a 125-117 loss to the Blazers on Thursday. There were some trade rumors on DeRozan, but the Spurs wound up keeping him as one of the quiet teams at the deadline. The Spurs are slipping a bit in the standings and their playoff appearance streak will certainly be tested in April. Unless things totally come off the rails, DeRozan has been excellent since the calendar turned to 2020 and he’s basically a lock for early-round value going forward
Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin
Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 23 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block, three steals, six 3-pointers and one turnover in 36 minutes during a 105-97 win over the Heat on Friday. The Kings had to run some extremely small lineups today with Richaun Holmes (shoulder) still out, and Harry Giles only able to get 14 minutes. The Kings shed some salary at the deadline with Dewayne Dedmon headed back to Atlanta, so Sacramento figures to lean on Bogdan heavily to see what kind of money he’s worth as a restricted free agent. He should be owned in standard leagues.
The over has cashed in four out of the last five meetings between these two teams in Sacramento. The over is also 7-3 in the Spurs’ last 10 games when they’re favored, is 5-1 in their last six road games overall and is 4-0 in their last four games coming off a loss. The over is also 10-3 in the Kings’ last 13 games overall, is 5-2 in their last seven home games and is 4-1 in their last five games when playing on zero rest.
