James Harden led the Rockets to a 142-130 win over the Wolves on Friday night, scoring 24 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

He hit 7-of-10 from the the line and 5-of-11 from deep, adding 10 assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes. The Rockets scored a season-high 142 points in the win and attempted 58 3-pointers, three shy of their franchise record -- coach Mike D'Antoni said this week that the Rockets want to attempt 50+ 3-pointers every night. There's been some talk about the Rockets reducing Harden's workload a bit, but that doesn't really matter in an offense as potent as this. He's the top player in 8-cat leagues this season.

Dwyane Wade scored 20 points with nine rebounds, 10 assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He just missed the triple-double in hilarious fashion on the last play of the game. A missed shot came softly off the rim and right to Wade, but Cristiano Felicio went for it to knock it away from Wade to leave him at nine boards. Clearly, Wade knew he missed the trip-dub based on his reaction (video in link below). Wade is coming out with a head of steam with a 23-point game on Friday and has his Bulls in the sixth seed. He'll likely be managed at some point, but keep rolling Wade out there. He gets a great matchup against the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Nikola Mirotic scored 14 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

Two good games in a row? Is this real life? Mirotic was in a serious slump heading into the break and was even a DNP-CD in the last game before the All-Star break. Plus, the Bulls said they traded Taj Gibson because they wanted to get a look at Bobby Portis. Well, maybe this is a wakeup call for Mirotic and he can keep it going. He's far from a must-add guy, but coming out hot after the break makes him worth a pickup for anyone needing treys.

Jerian Grant made another start against the Cavs on Saturday with six points, three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He probably had his chance to be the starter and he only played 21.8 minutes per game in his previous starts anyway. Grant isn't really worth owning in any league right now with the arrival of Cam Payne. Michael Carter-Williams was also out for this game.
Feb 25 - 11:39 PM

Cameron Payne made his Bulls debut on Saturday with six points, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers in 12 minutes.

The Bulls could eventually start Payne, but for now it doesn't look like Rajon Rondo is going away. That means Payne will likely be capped at around 24 minutes and there really won't be many chances to produce with Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade soaking up all the usage. Payne is really just a deep flier right now.
Feb 25 - 11:35 PM

Jeff Teague scored 16 points with six assists in Saturday's loss to the Heat.

He shot just 5-of-16 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, adding three boards and one steal in 32 minutes. Teague has cooled off significantly this month and is shooting 41.6 percent from the field in February compared to 54.8 percent in January. The Pacers are in the playoff hunt and Teague is healthy, so it's not a bad idea to buy low before your fantasy trade deadline ends.
Feb 25 - 11:33 PM

Rajon Rondo scored 15 points with two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 25 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

After a goose egg in his final game of the first half, Rondo has turned in two solid games after the break. In case you missed it yesterday, coach Fred Hoiberg said he wants to keep Rondo in the rotation to have some veteran balance to go with the youth at the one. He doesn't have a very fantasy-friendly game, so there's no need to add him.
Feb 25 - 11:29 PM

Denzel Valentine scored 11 points with two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He's batting 1.000 in productive games since the front office had his back and said they wanted to get an extended look at him following the trade deadline. Valentine's play will make him a viable DFS punt when the Bulls don't have all of their veterans, but it's tough to own in in most leagues with only 20 minutes.
