Three video games, three extra double-digit victories on Tuesday night, and two of them being blowouts means fewer fantasy gems all in all. There was no scarcity of stats, nevertheless, however spoiler, Stephen Curry and Dejounte Murray stole most of them.
Warriors 117, Nets 99
This recreation was shut on the half after which Stephen Curry and the Warriors blew it open within the third quarter, successful that interval by a 35-18 rely, and held the fort down late to get their twelfth win in 14 video games. Golden State has thrived in third quarters, and over their final seven video games have a plus-89 in these 84 minutes, with the plus-17 tonight completely illustrating that.

He was in a little bit of foul bother however you couldn’t inform, and who is aware of what would’ve occurred if the sport was shut and he performed minutes within the 30s (though it’s Curry’s fault the sport wasn’t shut). He hit 9 triples on Tuesday and has hit a minimum of that many in a recreation 37 instances now, and for some context, nobody within the historical past of the sport has reached double digit occurrences of such a feat. There’s simply nobody like him. Andrew Wiggins continued his good play as of late with 19 factors however didn’t give his fantasy managers a lot else, and 13 of those factors had been scored within the final six minutes of the second quarter, together with a 3 to beat the halftime buzzer. He’s not fairly top-100 but and it’s as a result of he’s not blocking photographs anymore, however he might begin to quickly. Draymond Inexperienced was positive with an 11/6/8 line on 5-of-6 capturing with a steal and three turnovers, whereas Jordan Poole went 6-of-13 capturing (however someway 0-of-7 from downtown) to provide him his ninth straight recreation in double figures, additionally chipping in 4 boards, 4 assists, a block and 5 turnovers in 28 minutes.

Kevin Durant was lastly inefficient, going simply 6-of-19 for a 19/5/3 line with two 3-pointers, no defensive stats and two turnovers in 32 minutes, however he’s been traditionally environment friendly this season. The truth is, it was his worst capturing efficiency of the season by far, as his season-low earlier than this was a 12-of-27 (44.4%) efficiency in opposition to the Pistons on November 5. James Harden was subpar for his requirements with a 24/4/4 line (6-of-13 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs) with no defensive stats and 5 turnovers, however Brooklyn’s two studs ought to each get a go given the lopsided consequence. Bruce Brown wasn’t dangerous with an environment friendly 14 factors, 5 boards, three assists, three steals, one trey and no turnovers in 27 minutes, and he’s solely on the verge of top-150 dialog due to the steals. Patty Mills received the beginning for Joe Harris (ankle sprain, will miss a “few video games”), however was underwhelming with simply eight factors, 4 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes, however he’s price deploying a minimum of for so long as Harris is out as there’s no method he’s worse than this. LaMarcus Aldridge didn’t even enter the sport till the third quarter, possible as a result of Warriors all the time going small, and had simply two factors in 9 minutes. DeAndre’ Bembry was quietly strong in 31 reserve minutes with a 9/5/1/2/1 line however is a extra vital participant in actual life than in fantasy hoops, so it’s positive to ignore him.
Jazz 120, 76ers 85
The final couple days have been chock-full of blowouts, with this demolition being the largest one over that span. Donovan Mitchell didn’t have to do a lot and had a 13/3/3/1/1 line in simply 22 minutes, and whereas this broke a streak of eight straight video games of a minimum of 20 factors for Spida, there’s nothing to fret about right here. Bojan Bogdanovic led the best way with 27 factors (9-of-12 FGs), six boards, two assists, 5 treys and one turnover in 27 minutes, however his recreation isn’t overly fantasy pleasant since all he does is rating. Rudy Gobert did his factor with 15 factors, 17 boards and 4 swats, Mike Conley had a 13/2/7 line with a pair of threes and Jordan Clarkson scored 20 factors (8-of-20 capturing) off the bench with seven boards and a dime. This Utah workforce is a lot better than their 9-5 report suggests.

The 76ers had been a large number and shot 36.7% from the sector as a workforce, together with 20.7% from three, and so they’re actually lacking Joel Embiid (protocols) proper about now. Shake Milton led Philly in scoring with 18 factors to go along with three boards and 4 assists, with Tyrese Maxey not far behind with 16 factors, 4 boards, two dimes and two triples, however neither guard tallied any defensive stats. Tobias Harris was quiet particularly for his requirements with a 12/4/5 line with a triple and two swats, Andre Drummond performed simply 12 minutes for six factors and 6 boards with a steal and a block and Furkan Korkmaz has been residing in Wrestle Metropolis with one other depressing 2-of-12 efficiency for six factors and 5 boards. One of many solely spectacular Sixers on this one was Isaiah Joe, who returned from a six-game absence (protocols) and tallied eight factors, eight boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes. He entered the sport and almost instantly drained a trey and hit a transition layup and seemed fairly good, however you needn’t do something greater than regulate him in the mean time.
Clippers 106, Spurs 92
The Clippers misplaced to Chicago on Sunday however have in any other case been pink sizzling, successful eight of their final 9 with Paul George being the pressure behind all of it. PG-13 scored a November-high 34 factors (10-of-24 FGs, 12-of-13 FTs) with 9 rebounds, 4 assists, two steals, two triples and 6 turnovers in 34 minutes, and he’s a top-5 fantasy man and has been mainly the entire season. Reggie Jackson posted a 21/6/4 line with a pair of blocks, however he needed to chuck up 17 three-pointers to get there, sinking 5 of these and simply eight of his 22 photographs total, so it wasn’t all good for R-Jax. Eric Bledsoe had 11 factors, six boards and three steals (4 turnovers, nevertheless) and is again in customary league territory as he’s getting it going once more, Ivica Zubac hauled in a game-high 13 boards in 31 minutes and Nicolas Batum performed simply 14 minutes with only a board and two assists. Batum is ok and Ty Lue mentioned after the sport that they had been managing his sore Achilles, which is sensible given his age. This and Terance Mann’s (ankle) absence on Tuesday led to extra minutes for Amir Coffey (5/2/2 with a block in 25 minutes) and Brandon Boston Jr., who performed very effectively in his 20 minutes with 13 factors, 4 rebounds, one help, one steal and two triples. He’s so proficient and it’s a disgrace he could not carve out a key rotation position when Batum and Mann are absolutely wholesome, however a minimum of he got here by with the quotes of the night time. After the sport, Boston Jr. mentioned “I don’t know what I’m gonna do, so the protection doesn’t both”, and mentioned he treats the basketball with respect like a girlfriend, claiming “Blissful spouse, blissful life.” He must play extra not simply because he’s good on the recreation, but additionally in order that we will get some extra postgame gold. Please, coach Lue?
The Spurs put up a pleasant battle and so they possible can’t say sufficient good issues about Dejounte Murray, who was simply an help shy of his second straight triple-double together with his stat line popping out to 26 factors (12-of-21 FGs), 12 rebounds, 9 assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and 4 turnovers in 39 minutes. He got here in simply shy of top-15 worth and could also be there after this one, and his ADP appears to be like like a joke at this level. Derrick White was sizzling early and completed with a 19/3/3 line with a steal and a trey and Keldon Johnson took simply 9 photographs however posted a good 10/5/3/1/1 line. Drew Eubanks (eight factors, 10 boards) and Thaddeus Younger (10/4/5 with two steals) could have seen the tip of their enjoyable with Jakob Poeltl doubtlessly enjoying in Thursday’s matchup with the Timberwolves. Devin Vassell is coming off of a 19-point efficiency in opposition to the Lakers on Sunday however was almost invisible on Tuesday with two factors in 19 minutes, however he’s nonetheless a maintain and has loads of rest-of-season upside.
