Seth Curry racked up 29 points with three assists, a rebound and just one turnover in 36 minutes Monday night against the visiting Heat.
Curry was on fire from behind the arc, connecting on five of his seven 3-pointer attempts and he added a perfect 4-for-4 night from the charity stripe, too. He isn't quite at brother Steph's superstar level yet, but he has bagged two or more triples in six straight games, and 16 of his past 19 outings. The 'other' Curry has emerged as a bona fide must-start fantasy option across the board.
Tim Hardaway Jr. returned to the bench on Monday and hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, four boards, a steal and a block in 27 minutes.
The minutes were there but Hardaway has cooled off over his last four games, scoring between 10 and 15 points in each of them. He was killing it when Thabo Sefolosha was out with his groin injury, but now that he's back and started over THJ tonight, Hardaway's future doesn't look quite as bright as it did a week ago. If Hardaway's your worst player and you want to cut him for a super-hot free agent, it probably makes sense. But generally speaking, Hardaway is still worth hanging onto until we see how this all plays out over the next few games.
Kyle O'Quinn played 15 minutes on Monday vs. the Raptors, finishing with four points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks.
Foul trouble has been an issue all season and he picked up three fouls in 15 minutes in this one. Regardless, KOQ's outlook is promising with Joakim Noah (knee surgery) expected to miss the rest of the season, so if you can put up with some bumps in the road, KOQ has enough upside to warrant a roster spot in standard leagues. He scored nine points with five rebounds, five assists, five steals and two blocks in 25 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.
Dennis Schroder returned from his one-game suspension on Monday and racked up 21 points, four boards, five assists and a steal on 9-of-14 shooting in a 114-98 win over the Celtics.
Nice. Schroder was suspended for being late in his return from the All-Star break, but didn't miss a step tonight. Hopefully you had him in your lineup for this one.
Kent Bazemore hit 7-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 26 minutes of Monday's 114-98 win over the Celtics.
Bazemore's scoring line is all over the map in February, as he's hit double figures just five times, while scoring in single digits in his other six games. The 15 points were the most he's scored since he had 24 points on Jan. 29, and with Thabo Sefolosha back from his groin injury, as well as Tim Hardaway getting a lot of usage right now, Bazemore's inconsistency will probably continue until further notice. Nonetheless, he's generally worth owning in 12-team leagues.
Thabo Sefolosha started over Tim Hardaway on Monday and racked up 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in just 21 minutes.
Sefolosha is known for his D, but came through across the board tonight. He didn't do much in his previous two games since returning from a groin injury, but now that he's starting, he's worth keeping an eye on. But sadly, this might end up being one of his best games of the season.
Ron Baker played 19 minutes vs. the Raptors on Monday, scoring five points on 2-of-4 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and one triple.
The Knicks waived Brandon Jennings on Monday, so Baker will now compete with Chasson Randle for the backup PG role behind Derrick Rose. Rose actually suffered a shoulder stinger on Monday, but said after the game that he's fine. Unless the former MVP misses time, Baker can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Paul Millsap hit 7-of-18 shots for 17 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes of Monday's 114-98 win over the Celtics.
This was a nice win for the Hawks and there's a pretty decent chance the two teams will meet in the playoffs, since that's what usually seems to happen. Millsap's rebounding has been way down in February (5.8 per game), but he got back on track tonight, although he was helped by the fact Dwight Howard was ejected, forcing Millsap to play some center. In fact, this was his first double-double since he had 37 points and 19 boards on Jan. 29 against the Knicks. Hopefully this is a sign that he's ready to start racking up double-digit boards again.
