Kings vs. Suns: Public Bettors Siding with Home Favorite
Our NBA Public Betting Information page indicates that 61% of public bettors are currently backing the Suns when it comes to the spread. This information is subject to change throughout the day, however, so be sure to check the link so you’re receiving the most up-to-date public betting data.
Sabonis Records Another Triple-Double
Domantas Sabonis logged 42 minutes in Sunday’s 127-113 loss to the Thunder, scoring 21 points (9-of-14 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 14 assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer. Sabonis recorded his league-leading 17th triple-double of the season on Sunday, with the five turnovers being the lone negative from his performance in Oklahoma City.
Over the past two weeks, he’s provided top 10 per-game value in 8- and 9-cat formats. Sabonis is shooting just over 69% from the foul line this season, with that being the main issue that has kept him from approaching 1st-round fantasy value. Sacramento plays four games during Week 17, beginning with a road back-to-back against the Suns and Nuggets before the All-Star break.
Durant Finishes with 24/10/7/1/3 Line vs. Warriors
Kevin Durant posted a full line on Saturday with 24 points (10-of-25 FGs), 10 rebounds, seven assists, one steal, three blocks, two 3-pointers and six turnovers against the Warriors.
KD had shot better than 50% in his previous eight games before Saturday, but he wasn’t able to keep the streak going. He struggled with his efficiency as he shot the ball poorly and turned it over six times. He was still able to contribute a full stat line, so it was an overall solid night. Durant has once again been a top ten player in fantasy basketball this season, and he has already played in 46 games after playing 47 last season. The most that he has played in a season since leaving Golden State is 55 games, so he is on pace to break that early in March.
