Andrew Wiggins scored 30 points in 37 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday.
Wiggins finished 11-of-22 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line with two rebounds, two assists, three steals, one triple and six turnovers in the loss -- the Wolves finished with a season-high 25 turnovers that led to 38 points for Houston. He's now scored 20+ points in 17 straight games, the longest streak in franchise history. He's a safe bet to keep the streak going against the Kings on Monday.
Seth Curry scored 13 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.
After a career-high 31 points to go with only one rebound and one assists, Curry flipped the script as more of a stat-stuffer in this win. His role is likely going to change because the Mavs are expected to add size to their first unit with Nerlens Noel at the five, which bumps Dirk Nowitzki, Harrison Barnes and Wes Matthews all down to a smaller position. Curry has played too well to lose minutes, so keep him rolling. He's been a top-50 player in his last 20 games.
Karl-Anthony Towns scored 37 points with a career-high 22 rebounds in Saturday's 142-130 loss to the Rockets.
So good. KAT has been the top player in standard leagues for over a month and showed why tonight, shooting 16-of-24 from the field, 4-of-4 from the line and 1-of-2 from beyond the arc with three assists, one block and one steal. He took advantage of a Houston team that has allowed the fourth most fantasy points to centers this season, but he gets another great matchup on Monday vs. the Kings. There's no reason to sell high.
Harrison Barnes scored 19 points in a start at power forward against the Pelicans on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Considering the Mavs do not want to bench Dirk Nowitzki and they do want to start Nerlens Noel, that means Harry B will go back to his more conventional small forward spot. Barnes does take a 7.1 usage rate hit when he's next to Dirk this season, but his efficiency is also a lot better. Expect Barnes to be a mid-round guy going forward.
Gorgui Dieng double-doubled with 16 points and 13 rebounds on Saturday vs the Rockets.
Dieng finished an efficient 7-of-10 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line, adding two assists, four steals and one block in 36 minutes. The big man has slowed down considerably in February with averages of 7.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.4 blocks and 1.3 steals in his previous 11 games this month, so there's some buy-low appeal here for a guy who's still returning top-60 value in standard leagues on the season.
Dwight Powell was a DNP-CD on Saturday.
Nerlens Noel put the kibosh on Powell the rest of the way. He's a clear drop.
Salah Mejri fouled out in six minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.
He's a good story and is fun to watch, but he's clearly trending down with Nerlens Noel in the mix. Mejri is a drop candidate everywhere.
Anthony Davis scored 39 points during a 96-83 loss to the Mavs on Saturday, adding 14 rebounds, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer.
That's two blowout losses in the two games since DeMarcus Cousins arrived. Coach Alvin Gentry has done a decent job of staggering his two bigs with the pair on the court for only 44 minutes together in the two games -- Davis has played 72 total minutes and Cousins has played 67. It seems pretty clear Boogie will be affected more than AD, who should still be a first-round guy going forward.
