We had a small four-game NBA DFS slate on SuperDraft Monday. Let’s take a look at our top suggested plays of the slate and see how they fared.
DeMar DeRozan, SG, Chicago Bulls (1.05x score multiplier)
DeRozan was ruled out 15 minutes prior to lock, so it turned into the Zach LaVine return game. LaVine logged 35 minutes of playing time. He put up 23 points with seven rebounds and seven assists. Once this Chicago Bulls team is fully healthy again, it will be a dangerous squad.
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers (1.65x)
Love was a monster off the bench Monday. Jarrett Allen was ruled out before the start of the game, and the boost of Love became even bigger. In just 24 minutes, he logged a double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds. He added on three assists and one steal also. Love was one of the top plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the slate overall.
Goga Bitadze, C, Indiana Pacers (1.5x)
The Indiana Pacers were short big men once again Monday, which gave Bitadze his third straight start. He didn’t see as much playing time this time around, with just 22 minutes after back-to-back games of 30 or more. Bitadze was efficient with his shots as he went 4-of-7 from the floor. He finished with 12 points, five rebounds, and three assists. If it weren’t for his five fouls and three turnovers, he may have been able to extend his playing time.
Best Plays of The Slate
The Bulls almost had a starting five of the top players for the slate. We’ve covered what Zach LaVine did in his return, but Nikola Vucevic was an even better play. The center put up a huge double-double with 26 points and 15 rebounds. He added on four assists, three blocks and one steal. The big man did it all as the Bulls defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 111-110. We also can’t forget Ayo Dosunmu who put up 24 points and eight rebounds in 35 minutes of playing time. There is one final duo that went off and that was Chris Paul and Devin Booker. With a win over the Utah Jazz 115-109, Paul recorded 27 points with 14 assists which secured his double-double bonus. He did miss out on the triple-double by one rebound as he had nine on the night. Booker put up 33 points with seven rebounds and three assists. He added some defensive stats with two blocks and two steals.
