Kings vs. Nets: Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen lead Brooklyn to victory

The Nets picked up their third win in the NBA bubble, which is well above expectations heading into the season restart.

UPDATE: LeVert only scored three points in the second half but still put together a well-rounded performance. He finished with 22 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 steals to tally 45.25 DKFP. LeVert was outdone by Allen, who flirted with a triple-double. He finished with 17 points, 11 rebounds, and 8 assists to notch a game-high 45.75 DKFP.

Fox tallied an underwhelming 35.5 DKFP, but Bogdanovic put together a solid line with 27 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. Bogdanovic led the Kings with 38 DKFP.

Players from Friday’s matchup between the Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets have a ton of optimal DFS options, and Caris LeVert stole the show in the first half.

It was clear that LeVert would likely put up some big numbers when he was confirmed to be a part of Brooklyn’s starting lineup against one of the worst defensive teams in the bubble. He operated as his team’s primary playmaker and scorer against the Nets and stuffed the stat sheet. LeVert tallied 19 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists to tally 36.5 DKFP at the break. But he wasn’t the only Nets player thriving.

Jarrett Allen has begun to establish himself as one of the more sought after fantasy centers at his price point. He notched 10 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists through two quarters to tally 29 DKFP.

Sacramento put up 140 points in its last game and has high ceiling players like De’Aaron Fox and Bogdan Bogdanovic who can keep this game close. Three or four players in this matchup could eclipse 40 DKFP by the final buzzer.
