Indiana Pacers DFS Spin
Buddy Hield scored 24 points vs. the Bulls on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-16 from the field with seven triples, four assists, three rebounds and two turnovers. The Indiana front office is smiling, as this surely will bolster Hield’s value on the market. With Russell Westbrook’s future in Los Angeles looking bleak at best, you have to wonder if the Lakers will reengage the Pacers for a deal involving Hield and Myles Turner.
Washington Wizards DFS Spin
Kyle Kuzma played 27 minutes in Tuesday’s 120-98 win over the Wizards, tallying 25 points (9-of-17 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), six rebounds, one assist, and one block. Kuzma got off to a slow start Tuesday night, missing his first four shot attempts, but turned things around after halftime. In the final 24 minutes, he shot 7-of-11 from the field, and the overall point total would have been better if not for an 0-of-5 night from three. Kuzma’s now scored 22 points or more in three of Washington’s first four games, which should alleviate some of the concerns that his production would slip due to Kyle Kuzma and Bradley Beal (13/5/6 with one 3-pointer in 22 minutes) being healthy.
