Police say Zach Randolph met a man dealing marijuana aboard a charter cruise ship in Portland on Friday and invited him to his mansion later in order to sell weed to the 20 or so guests at Randolph's after-cruise party.

James Ruben Beasley told police he was encouraged to sell marijuana to anyone interested, until he was beaten with pool cues around 4 a.m. Saturday. Randolph has been in similar situations before, but is usually able to escape without penalty. We recently predicted the lockout was going to be bad news for him, and it didn't take long for Z-Bo to get into trouble with the law. The good news for Randolph is that no drugs were found when police searched the residence later.

Nikola Jokic posted his sixth triple-double of the season Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, tallying 19 points (8-of-12 FGs, 0-of-1 FTs), 12 assists, 11 rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Jokic (22 career triple-doubles) is now second on the NBA's all-time list for triple-doubles by a 7-footer, passing the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He's got a long way to go before he catches Wilt Chamberlain at 78, but the 7-footer has at the very least established himself as one of the top centers in the NBA. Over the last five games Jokic is averaging 23.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8.6 assists per with 53.8/38.1/85.2 shooting splits.

James Harden continued his historic run during a 138-134 overtime victory over the Lakers on Saturday, scoring 48 points with eight rebounds, six assists, four steals, one block, six turnovers and eight 3-pointers.

For the third game in a row, he was unassisted on all of his points to make it a ridiculous 163 points in the last three without any of those points coming off an assist. Plus, none of his 30 shots came directly off a pass, finishing today shooting 14-of-30 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line. Harden also had 19 attempts from three to make it at least 19 in three games in the last month after hitting that number just once in his career prior to this stretch. The Rockets took 68 treys in this one to put them two short of their record 70 on Wednesday -- the old record was 61. He has scored 30-plus points in 19 straight with Wilt Chamberlain the only player ever with more. Harden is creating some space to win his second consecutive MVP award.

Eric Gordon hit a clutch 3-pointer with 2.0 seconds left to send the game to overtime against the Lakers on Saturday, finishing with 30 points, five rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The Rockets downplayed his knee injury from Wednesday, and it turns out they weren't kidding with the guard excelling late. Gordon hit a clutch three before the big 3-pointer to send the game to OT and hit the first trey in overtime, as well. The Rockets will need him to log major minutes in a higher-usage role to help James Harden, and he should be staggered with some ball-handling chances in the second unit, as well. He should be owned in standard leagues until Chris Paul (hamstring) comes back.

Kyle Kuzma stayed hot against the Rockets on Saturday during a 138-134 overtime loss, making 12-of-19 from the field for 32 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, three turnovers and four 3-pointers in 44 minutes.

He hit all four of his treys in the first quarter to get him to 20 points for his second 20-plus scoring quarter of the season. Kuzma may have to handle the rock even more with Lonzo Ball (ankle) getting hurt, and coach Luke Walton has emphasized that Kuzma needs to pass more if he is going to be the first option. Whatever the case, he will continue to hang some big stat lines until the Lakers start to get players back.

Lance Stephenson made an impact off the bench against the Rockets on Saturday, scoring 16 points with two rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He saw run in overtime to sub in for Lonzo Ball's (ankle) role, and he was the best bench option on the perimeter. Stephenson is likely looking at more minutes, but he will likely have a short leash from coach Luke Walton. He's more of a stream when the Lakers are playing, and Rajon Rondo (hand) is getting closer anyway. If you have dead weight, give him a look.
Jan 19 - 11:42 PM

Ivica Zubac made 4-of-6 from the field and all nine from the line for 17 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and no turnovers in 21 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

After a career-high 26 points on Thursday, Zubac proved it was not a normal one-game situation. He is coach Luke Walton's closer, and he was playing so well that coach Mike D'Antoni had to change his plan to use Nene against Zu in overtime. He may not start and that will carry some extra risk because he will be at the mercy of game flow, but Zubac should be owned in standard leagues.

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 16 points (6-of-12 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs) with nine rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Saturday.

Jackson Jr. got the start at center with Marc Gasol (back) out. The Grizzlies have dropped like a rock in the standings of late, which means we could be getting closer to seeing JJJ unleashed. He excels without Gasol in the lineup and is the future of the franchise. His fantasy value is only going to rise as the season winds down.

Buddy Hield hit an off-balance 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Pistons 103-101 on Saturday, finishing with 35 points, nine rebounds, three assists, one block, one turnover and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It was one of the more unbelievable game-winning shots of the season as the Kings pulled off a huge late comeback down 12 with six minutes left (shot video in link below). His January is among the best for high-level scorers, sitting at a Curry-like 68.2 TS% with averages of 23.4 points, 4.2 boards, 2.0 dimes, 0.3 steals and 4.6 treys. He's taking 25% of his shots in the paint, he's on fire from deep with a 56.1 3P%, and he has been a strong finisher in the last two seasons. Armed with a strong late schedule, anyone wanting to sell high better ask for a whole lot. He looks like the real deal.

Danny Green exploded for a season-high 24 points (8-of-13 FGs) on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, one block, two steals and eight 3-pointers in 23 minutes against Memphis.

Green matched his career-high and set a new season-high with the eight triples made. This was his first 20-point game this season and just his first since last February 25. Scoring aside, Green is averaging 1.2 blocks and 1.6 steals over his last five games. He's been a top-25 player in 9-category leagues over the last two weeks and continues to show that he wasn't just some other guy in the Kawhi Leonard trade.

Blake Griffin got very little help during a 103-101 loss to the Kings on Saturday, scoring 38 points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

The other four starters combined for just 25 points in a tough home loss. Andre Drummond didn't play today, and that should lead to some big lines from Blake in games the big man can't miss. Per 36 without Drummond, Blake sits at 29.4 points, 10.5 boards, 4.5 dimes, 1.0 steals and 2.3 treys. He'll be a popular DFS play when the matchup isn't tough.
Jan 19 - 10:24 PM

Kyrie Irving led the way for the Celtics Saturday in Atlanta, scoring 32 points (11-of-19 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

After lighting up the Grizzlies for 38 points Friday, Irving passed the 30-point mark for the second consecutive night. The last time he tallied 30 or more in back-to-back games was in early November against the Nuggets and Suns. Over his last four games Irving, who scored 23 points in the first half Saturday night, boasts shooting splits of 57.3/48.0/82.8 and he’s scored 25 points or more in each outing. Also, he may be without a backcourt partner in the coming games as Marcus Smart was ejected in the third quarter following an altercation with DeAndre’ Bembry.
