This season's biggest trade was between the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers, and the two team's go-to guys dominated Sunday's main NBA slate. The battle was one-sided when the Eastern Conference rivals met last week, but Kevin Durant and Joel Embiid put on shows in their respective games on Sunday. We'll go over who's hot, who's not, and a DFS target to keep an eye on in Monday's main slate here.

Who's hot

Kevin Durant

The Nets ended Week 21 on a three-game winning streak and Durant's offense powered Brooklyn into the Eastern Conference's eighth spot with a strong showing on Sunday. The superstar forward scored 53 points, grabbed six rebounds, and dished out nine assists to top the Knicks. He's averaged 32 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game since returning from injury on March 3rd. 

Joel Embiid

The MVP frontrunner isn't losing steam. Embiid was only second to Durant in fantasy points on Sunday with 35 points, 16 rebounds, and seven assists. He averaged 35 points, 14 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game in Week 21. While he's battling some shooting woes, his raw numbers keep him among the cream of the crop consistently. 

Cade Cunningham

Cunningham fell one rebound short of his third career triple-double on Sunday. The rookie standout tallied 23 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists. He's scored as least 20 points in seven consecutive games and averaged 25 points, 8.0 assists, and 6.8 rebounds per game in Week 21.  

Who's not

Jrue Holiday
MIL • PG • 21
PPG18.2
APG6.7
SPG1.53
3P/G1.945

Holiday has had a solid year but struggled to shoot the ball last week. The Bucks guard is averaging 18.2 points per game on 50 percent shooting, but finished Week 21 averaging 12.3 points on 40 percent shooting through three contests. While Holiday did tally 7.0 assists per game in his previous three games, he's shot 28.6 percent from three over during his slump. He has a chance to bounce back against the Jazz on Monday, though.

DFS target

Miles Bridges

Bridges thrived in his lone matchup against the Thunder in January and could have more success on Monday at the Paycom Center. The Hornets swingman tallied 22 points and 14 rebounds in this interconference matchup earlier this season and the home team could be short on small forwards. Aaron Wiggins sat out on Sunday with flu-like symptoms and Kenrich Williams (knee) is out, so Bridges could see a lot of Alexsej Pokusevski. LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, and Bridges could all have strong showings, but Bridges seems like the most cost-effective option at $7,800 on DraftKings. He averaged 24.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game through three contests last week.
