Andrea Bargnani continued his hot streak on Thursday with 24 points, four boards, one block and three 3-pointers on 9-of-12 shooting vs. the Rockets.

The Italian was booed earlier this season for his lackluster play and he still hasn't made a shot in post-up yet this season, but he's quickly endearing himself into the Garden crowd for hitting open shots. In his last four, he's averaged 21.3 points, 1.8 blocks and 2.3 triples. Bargnani was a fantasy stud a few seasons ago and the Knicks are allowing him to play his style of game. He has to be owned across the board.

Will Barton got hot late against the Pelicans on Friday, finishing with 19 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

It was a Thriller night in OT as Barton scored 11 of the Nuggets' 13 points in overtime, including the first 10 opints. With Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) going down, that should mean we see even more Barton at the one, which has been a key wrinkle of coach Mike Malone's rotation this season. Barton was in discomfort at times during this game and maybe he's not 100 percent after a back injury kept him out Wednesday, but he's a must-start player in fantasy right now.

Trey Lyles scored 19 points with seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

He played the entire overtime period and all of the fourth quarter to help get this comeback win. We know coach Mike Malone is all about the hot hand approach, and Lyles certainly has it with at least 26 minutes in four straight, averaging 18.3 points, 5.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.3 treys on a pristine 79.1 TS% in those four. He's creeping onto the radar in standard leagues in a hurry, so give him a look if you don't like the guy at the end of your bench.

Torrey Craig scored six points in his first NBA start on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

He even had a big block on Jrue Holiday on the last play of regulation, so coach Mike Malone talked about his journey to get to this game. "He gets a call in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin. He gets an Uber. Gets a 4 a.m. wake-up call on a 5:15 flight," Malone said about joining the team. "He gets here for shootaround, I start him and put him in on the final play of regulation." This move to start him was probably about the matchup against a hot-shooting Pelicans team, but Craig played well enough to get another chance and Malone raved about him in the preseason. He's worth a look in deep leagues in an offense that is starting to click.

Anthony Davis scored 28 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and five blocks during a 117-111 overtime loss to the Nuggets on Friday.

In the fourth quarter, Davis did step on Mason Plumlee's foot, causing his left ankle to turn. Davis did stay in the game, but he was laboring with a noticeable limp in overtime. He's going to talk to a doctor tonight, but for now it sounds like he's avoided injury. Luckily for the Pelicans, they're off for a couple days and won't take on the Wizards until Tuesday.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 29 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, five 3-pointers and nine turnovers in 33 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

Those turnovers, though. This season, no NBA player has more possessions used than DeMarcus Cousins' 829 possessions used -- Russell Westbrook is at 795 -- but Cousins is also putting up a ridiculous 157 turnovers to lead the league. That means he's turning the ball over 18.9 percent of his possessions used, which is just way too much and it also explains why he's ranked second in usage rate. Turnovers aside, Boogie is a stat monster.

Kyle Lowry dropped a triple-double in a 120-87 win over the Nets on Friday, scoring 10 points with 10 rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

That's his 11th triple-double of his career and ninth as a Raptor. He was in there a little bit longer than expected during garbage time to possibly get the trip-dub and he was asked about it after the game. "Coach wanted me to get it," Lowry said. His buddy DeMar DeRozan had a different take on Lowry getting the trip-dub. "He lying. He lying. He lying. He said Russell Westbrook can do it every night, I'm going to try to do it." One day the Lowry-DeRozan reality TV show will be a big hit.
Dec 16 - 1:43 AM

DeMar DeRozan scored 31 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

Don't look now, but the Raptors are rolling with their +8.2 net rating crushing Boston's +4.7 for the best in the Eastern Conference on the year -- it's +11.3 over the last 15, too. The Raptors, Rockets and Warriors are all top eight for both offensive and defensive rating this season, and the Raptors have won eight of their last nine. DeRozan is also really heating up again with back-to-back 30-plus scoring games for the first time this season, but of course he did go against the Suns and Nets.
Dec 16 - 1:35 AM

Chris Paul posted one of the best fantasy lines of the night in Houston's 124-109 win over the Spurs on Friday, scoring 28 points (10-of-18 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with eight assists, four boards, a season-high seven steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He's now 13-0 and joins Dennis Rodman as only the players to win their first 13 games as starters on a new team. "[Rodman] has more championships," CP3 said. "I'll see if I can catch him in that." Paul is cruising with top-5 fantasy value on a per-game basis in standard category leagues and is thriving in one of the deadliest offenses in recent memory.

Russell Westbrook made 10-of-33 from the field for 27 points against the 76ers during a 119-117 triple-overtime win on Friday, adding 18 rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, six turnovers and two 3-pointers in 52 minutes.

In traditional Westbrook fashion, he attempted 15 shots in the overtime frames he was asked about his inefficiency after the game. "I don’t really give a damn about percentages, honestly. All I care about is wins," he said to ESPN's Doris Burke. Joel Embiid also had something to say about Westbrook's high usage. "The dude shot like 10-of-33. I wish I would have shot it 33 times," Embiid said. We all know about the triple-doubles, but Westy has been at just 0.8 points per possession this season (Synergy), and he's only at 70.0 percent at the line. In other words, his fantasy owners should give a damn about his percentages.
Dec 16 - 12:06 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 29 points with 16 rebounds, four assists and a blocked shot across 40 minutes in Friday's loss against the Bulls.

Antetokounmpo connected on 11-of-18 from the floor while hitting 1-of-3 from behind the stripe. He was rather mediocre 6-of-9 from the free-throw line, if you're looking to complain about something. But it was another very nice night at the office for the Greek Freak and his fantasy owners.

Tyreke Evans (right hip) returned from a one-game absence and led the Grizzlies to a 96-94 win over the Hawks on Friday with a game-high 22 points.

The win snaps a five-game losing streak for Memphis and it's just their second win over their last 18 games. Evans said he's been battling the soreness in his hip for over a week, but he was able to play 30 minutes and looked great while doing it, hitting 9-of-15 shots with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and four triples. The Grizzlies do play again on Saturday vs. the Celtics, so we'll see how his hip responds in the morning.
