Derrick Favors scored a career-high 35 points in Saturday's overtime win over the Pacers, adding 13 boards, one assist, one block and one steal in 44 minutes.

He was simply incredible on Saturday and even hit the game-winning layup with an impressive drive to the hoop. He shot 14-of-24 from the field and 7-of-9 from the charity stripe, and the Jazz are going to need more performances like this from Favors if they want to stay competitive in the West without Rudy Gobert (knee). Incredibly, Favors has been a top-10 player in standard leagues this season on a per-game basis.

Blake Griffin scored 27 points (8-of-16 FGs, 10-of-13 FTs) with eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

Griffin helped the Pistons snap their six-game losing streak and end the Celtics' eight-game winning streak. He's scored 20+ in 22 of his 26 games so far this season, including his last nine games. He's putting up top-25 value in nine-category leagues over the last two weeks, averaging 28.3 points, 7.8 boards, 4.8 dimes, and 2.5 triples in that span.

LeBron James notched his second triple-double of the season on Saturday, tallying 24 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes.

James, who is weeks away from his 34th birthday, is just 460 points away from passing up Michael Jordan for the No. 4 spot on the all-time scoring list; something he should easily accomplish this season. His 28.4 points per game account for his highest scoring total since the 2009-10 season (an MVP year for LBJ), and when ignoring the free throw category, James is elevated to top-4 status in 9-cat leagues.

Lonzo Ball registered his first triple-double of the season during Saturday's blowout win in Charlotte with 16 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists over 35 minutes.

Ball added two 3-pointers, five steals, one block and two turnovers while he was out there, and he also threw down a thunderous slam (link below) in what was easily his best game of the season. With Ball joining LeBron James in the triple-double club tonight, it was the first time teammates had triple-doubles since Jason Kidd and Vince Carter did it with New Jersey back in 2007, and the first time a Lakers duo has accomplished this feat since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson did it back in 1982.
Dec 15 - 9:47 PM

Andre Drummond scored 19 points (6-of-14 FGs, 7-of-9 FTs) with 20 rebounds, one assist, three steals, and five blocks in 33 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

Drummond has double-doubled in five straight games now, while also blocking five shots in back-to-back games. Since 2012-13, he has the most double-doubles in the league by a wide margin. The Celtics tried to employ the hack-a-Drummond strategy late in the fourth quarter, but he made 3-of-4 to spoil it. His free throw percentage is holding him back, shown by his drop from 4th to 8th round value over the last two weeks when taking FT% into account.

Nikola Mirotic (sore right ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Heat.

Mirotic has been resting his ailing ankle for the past week after leaving last Monday's game. He's only missed one full game because the Pelicans are in a friendly part of the schedule, but with their next game not until this upcoming Wednesday, it makes sense to sit him out again. Julius Randle will continue to star in his absence with Cheick Diallo picking up minutes off the bench.
Dec 15 - 8:56 PM

Zach LaVine (ankle) who has already been ruled out for the final two games of Chicago's road trip, may not be able to play in their upcoming two-game homestand either.

We'll have a better idea on the official timetable for LaVine when he meets with the Bulls' specialist in Chicago, but it sounds like there's a good chance he won't play in those upcoming home games, so he should be left on your bench in weekly settings. Kris Dunn, Justin Holiday and Lauri Markkanen will pick up the slack on offense while he's out.
Dec 15 - 8:51 PM

Nikola Vucevic posted a 15-point, 19-rebound double-double during Saturday's win over the Jazz, adding five assists, one triple, two blocks and two turnovers across 30 minutes.

Vucevic didn't have the most efficient outing, going 5-of-14 from the field, but that tends to happen when being matched up with Rudy Gobert. Still, he found a way to be effective, registered his 20th double-double of the season and the 19 rebounds accounted for a season-high. He also passed up Horace Grant for the No. 4 spot on Orlando's all-time blocked shots list, and the Magic come out of the Mexic City road trip 2-0.
Dec 15 - 8:23 PM

Robert Covington (right knee) is available to play Saturday vs. the Suns.

While Covington did play 31 minutes in the Timberwolves' most recent game he didn't look to be at full strength, which cast some doubt on his availability for Saturday's game. How much he'll be able to play and how effective he'll be remains to be seen. Minnesota is already down a forward, as Taj Gibson (personal) has been ruled out.
Dec 15 - 8:05 PM

Dario Saric will start in place Taj Gibson (personal) on Saturday against the Suns.

Saric will make his first start with the Wolves with Gibson away from the team. Lineups with Saric have fared well since the trade and, while he's unlikely to stick in the starting unit, a good performance could help strengthen his case. He's worth the stream and DFS play on Saturday.
Dec 15 - 7:55 PM

Mike Conley (sore left hamstring) will play Saturday against the Rockets.

Conley has been playing through his hammy injury and hasn't been hampered much, if at all. The fact that he's playing on the second night of a back-to-back is a great sign going forward.
Dec 15 - 7:27 PM

Luke Kennard will remain in the starting lineup for Saturday's game vs. Boston, joining Reggie Jackson, Reggie Bullock, Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.

With Bullock (ankle) back, it's Kennard who will remain with the starters while rookie Bruce Brown returns to the bench. The Duke product put forth the best performance of his career to date in the Pistons' December 10 loss to the 76ers, scoring 28 points (11-of-18 FG, 1-of-2 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers. Kennard followed that up with a six-point, four-rebound effort Wednesday, so he still has some work to do from a consistency standpoint.
