Phoenix Suns DFS Spin

Devin Booker hit 15-of-26 shots, 1-of-6 3-pointers, and 12-of-13 free throws for 43 points, five assists, five rebounds, one block, and two turnovers in a win over the Timberwolves on Sunday. Booker was fantastic on Sunday, recording his most made field goals in a game this season on 57.7% shooting. Forty-one of his 43 points were scored in the first three quarters, which is the fourth time he's hit 40 in three frames over his career. All other Suns players combined over the last 25 years have only done so twice. It was also his sixth 40/5/5 game, which according to StatMuse is the most in Suns franchise history since the 3-point era. Maybe this guy should've been an All-Star the first time around

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Spin

LeBron James recorded 19 points (7-of-12 FG, 2-of-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, three triples, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers across 24 minutes in Sunday's 117-91 win over the Warriors. James missed a potential game-winning triple in the Lakers' previous matchup with the Warriors this season, a game they lost by two points, but the Lakers ensured that this one wasn't close as King James exacted some revenge of his former Finals rivals. James is averaging a career-high 2.4 triples per contest this season to go with 25.7 points, 8.2 boards, 7.9 dimes and 1.1 steals per game on 50.2% shooting from the field and 69.8% from the stripe, which has him flirting with top-15 value if you ignore the free throws.
