  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Breaks 30-point threshold again

    Gilgeous-Alexander racked up 33 points (10-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 12-12 FT), one rebound, six assists, one block and three steals across 35 minutes during Saturday's 135-128 victory over Minnesota.

    Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder in scoring on the way to a victory. He managed to knock down all 12 of his free throws, and he's notched double-digit attempts from the charity stripe in five of his last six contests. Gilgeous-Alexander has also scored 30 or more points in each of his last six games, averaging 31.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.7 steals over this stretch.

  • Josh Giddey PG | OKC

    Thunder's Josh Giddey: Enjoys big all-around night

    Giddey racked up 21 points (8-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and two steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 135-128 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Giddey finally managed to drill a three, marking his first made triple since Nov. 23 against Denver. Saturday marked his most made threes in a game this season, and he wasn't done there, as he secured his second straight double-double. Giddey is averaging 14.7 points, 8.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists on 44.1 shooting from the field over his last 10 appearances.

  • Clippers' Brandon Boston: Steps up off bench

    Boston notched 18 points (6-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes during Saturday's 123-96 loss to Sacramento.

    Boston saw significant action off the bench for the second straight game with Paul George (hamstring), Norman Powell (groin) and Luke Kennard (calf) all sidelined. Boston has taken advantage of his opportunities, attempting a season-high 13 field goals and rewarding his team with his best scoring performance of the year. He's now finished in double figures in back-to-back contests and has been a factor on the defensive end with a pair of steals over that brief stretch.

  • Ivica Zubac C | LAC

    Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Secures 15 boards

    Zubac posted 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 27 minutes during Saturday's 123-96 loss to Sacramento.

    Zubac enjoyed another big night on the glass, recording 10 of his 15 rebounds on the defensive end. He also collected another double-double, marking his third in four contests. Zubac is averaging 10.8 points, 11.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.7 blocks over 24 games this season.

  • Terance Mann SF | LAC

    Clippers' Terance Mann: Decent all-around showing

    Mann contributed 13 points (6-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Saturday's 123-96 loss to the Kings.

    Mann knocked down 46.2 percent of his field goals and returned to double figures after being held to five points Wednesday night against the Jazz. The Florida State product also performed above his season average in rebounding (3.3) and assists (1.8), and he's now dished out three or more assists in four of his last five matchups.

  • Chimezie Metu PF | SAC

    Kings' Chimezie Metu: Provides solid bench scoring

    Metu had 10 points (3-3 FG, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 15 minutes during Saturday's 123-96 victory over the Clippers.

    Metu attempted only three shots from the field, but he drained each of them and also knocked down a season-high four attempts from the charity stripe. Saturday marked the first time since Nov. 22 against Memphis that he was able to score in double figures. It's also worth noting that Metu has secured eight boards in back-to-back contests after averaging 3.1 rebounds per game through his first 11 contests of the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Kings' Domantas Sabonis: Leads Kings in scoring

    Sabonis finished with 24 points (10-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 26 minutes during Saturday's 123-96 victory over the Clippers.

    Sabonis poured in a team-high 24 points on a near-perfect shooting night. He also stuffed the stat sheet, which included his second two-block game over his last three contests. The Gonzaga product has scored in double figures in each of his last five matchups, averaging 17.0 points, 9.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists in 30.6 minutes.

  • Keegan Murray PF | SAC

    Kings' Keegan Murray: Scores career-high 23 points

    Murray finished Saturday's 123-96 win over the Clippers with 23 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes.

    Murray busted out of his slump with an efficient shooting performance, knocking down 53.3 percent of his field goals. He'd averaged 7.3 points and 4.3 rebounds over his last seven contests entering Saturday's clash, so this bounce-back night was an encouraging sign for fantasy managers.

  • Moses Moody SF | GS

    Warriors' Moses Moody: Goes for 11 points Saturday

    Moody logged 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 17 minutes during Saturday's 120-101 victory over Houston.

    Moody logged some extra minutes in garbage time, flashing his offensive arsenal in the process. Despite an element of upside, Moody's role has been inconsistent, to say the least. Barring injuries to key pieces, he appears likely to remain a backend rotation option better suited to the deepest of leagues.

  • Warriors' Kevon Looney: Nudges double-double in win

    Looney supplied nine points (3-4 FG, 3-5 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one block over 27 minutes during Saturday's 120-101 win over the Rockets.

    Looney grabbed 12 boards for the third time in his last five games, continuing to function admirably as the Warriors' starting center. He currently sits as the 139th ranked player in 12-team formats, a ranking that is somewhat flattering given his limited offerings. While technically a viable asset, managers would be better served viewing him as more of a streaming option moving forward.
