Tristan Thompson scored a season-high 21 points with nine boards, five assists, one block and one steal in 40 minutes against the Celtics on Tuesday.

He set a career high with five assists and his 40 minutes were a season high. On the down side, three of his shots were blocked, which has been a major bugaboo for him in his two seasons as a pro. That said, Tristan is having a tremendous sophomore season and he should be in all lineups.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he won't rest any players on Thursday.

This means LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will be a full go. Iman Shumpert (knee) and Richard Jefferson (knee) will play, while Kyle Korver (foot) is still out . The Cavs do play again on Friday vs. Philly, so a DNP-rest could be coming for James, Love and Irving if they see a lot of minutes tonight.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Marcin Gortat "needs to play better."

"Definitely needs to play better but we’ve got some options," Brooks said. Those "options" are Jason Smith, Ian Mahinmi and Markieff Morris, as the Wizards have been playing more small ball and Gortat has seen his minutes fall off since the All-Star break. In fact, he hasn't played in the fourth quarter of four straight games. He's slumping at the worst possible time for fantasy owners and is a drop candidate if there's a hot free agent available.

Chris Paul scored 27 points during a 133-124 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers just smashed to match a season-high 133 points in this win. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and J.J. Redick reached the 20-point mark in the same game for the first time ever. CP3 appears to be out of his shooting slump and has now made 5-of-10 from deep in his last two, but there was never really much concern to begin with. Moving forward, the Clippers have a lot going on with playoff seeding, trailing the No. 4 seed Jazz by 1.5 games while holding a slim 1.0 lead over the Thunder. That should allow CP3 to log plenty of minutes in his team's final eight games.

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Clippers offense was on fire and Blake's bucket with 5:43 left in the third made the Clippers the fastest team to 100 points in a game this season -- Lawler's law worked again today. Griffin's numbers were trending down with only 17.7 points per game over his previous 10, which has knocked him down to just fifth-round value per game on the year. Hopefully, this big game gets him going again.

J.J. Redick scored a season-high 31 points with one assist and seven 3-pointers against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Nobody told the Wizards that Redick can shoot a little bit, and maybe they thought he wasn't playing despite his ankle injury from the weekend. Redick should also be a bigger part of the offense in the short term now that Austin Rivers (hamstring) is going to miss time. He was trending down, but now he's trending back up due to the Rivers injury.
Mar 30 - 1:43 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said Austin Rivers (hamstring) "will be out for a little while" and will not play on Thursday against the Suns.

He has hamstring soreness and the Clippers won't need to rush him back now that J.J. Redick is healthy. Redick is coming off a season-high 31 points and should benefit the most until Rivers comes back. Jamal Crawford figures to pick up some minutes and perhaps Raymond Felton plays a little more SG.
Mar 30 - 1:39 AM

Tony Parker failed to score in 24 minutes vs. Golden State on Wednesday, going 0-of-4 from the field with two assists, two steals, two turnovers and one rebound.

This was Parker's second scoreless game of the season, and it's the fourth time in seven games that he's scored four points or fewer. The veteran recently conceded that he's no longer needed to be aggressive offensively, and is instead looking to set up teammates, but he struggled in both of those aspects tonight. He faces another unique challenge vs. Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Friday.
Mar 30 - 1:37 AM

John Wall scored 41 points against the Clippers during a 133-124 loss on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

It's the most points he's scored on the road in his career, but the Wizards couldn't stop a nosebleed on defense during this loss. Wall's scoring is through the roof these days with at least 34 points in three straight while he's also seen 3.0 steals per game and plenty of other stats along the way. While the Wizards can't defend right now, Wall's fantasy owners have to be loving these high-scoring, fast-paced games.
Mar 30 - 1:37 AM

Mike Conley scored 16 points in the first quarter of Wednesday's home victory, which he finished with 36 points, a career-high seven 3-pointers, six assists, four steals, and three rebounds in 38 minutes.

Memphis scored a season-high 38 points in the first quarter alone tonight, thanks largely to Conley's explosion, and his 16 points matched a career-high for a single quarter. He's the alpha and omega of the Grizzlies' offense with Marc Gasol (foot) out of commission, and owners can expect more big lines if Gasol can't suit up on Friday and Sunday.
Mar 30 - 12:39 AM

Markieff Morris was ejected on Wednesday.

He went up for a block attempt on DeAndre Jordan and the refs called a foul on him, but he obviously didn't agree to lead to the ejection. He shouldn't be suspended for this infraction going forward. Morris finished with 14 points, four rebounds and two 3-pointers.
Mar 30 - 12:29 AM

Marco Belinelli lit up the Raptors on Wednesday for 21 points, making 7-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

The veteran sharp-shooter had just one turnover in 27 minutes, and his efforts helped the Hornets escape with an essential road win in Toronto, keeping their slim playoff hopes alive. Frank Kaminsky added 13 points, three 3-pointers, four boards and two assists tonight, and those are the only two Hornets reserves worth considering in most fantasy leagues.
