Ben Simmons scored 16 points (7-of-12 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, and just one turnover in 34 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Simmons has had a few games with a lot of turnovers of late, but kept them to a minimum in this one. He continues to be a nightly triple-double threat while contributing almost two steals per game. The only downside to his game continues to be is his poor free throw shooting, but he more than makes up for it elsewhere.

Russell Westbrook struggled shooting on Thursday, making just 7-of-30 shots for 26 points with nine rebounds, 13 assists, one block, one steal and five 3-pointers in 43 minutes against the Lakers.

Westbrook made just 2-of-18 of his 2-point field goals in this one, but did knock down a season-high five triples to help make up for it. He also made 7-of-10 from the free throw line, including three at the end of regulation to tie the game and sent it to overtime. There was just a 26.5% chance of him making all three foul shots based on his season FT%, but the former MVP came up clutch. Russ' FT% is trending up of late, sitting at 75% over the last five games.

Jamal Murray made seven 3-pointers against the Bulls on Thursday, finishing with 25 points, two rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 29 minutes.

He's getting hot again and coincidentally he's made 50.0% from the field in each of his last three, averaging 23.3 points, 3.0 boards, 4.0 dimes, 0.3 steals and 4.0 treys in those outings. The made treys tell the story here, and Murray only made two shots at the rim over these three. The Blue Arrow gets another easy matchup against the Cavs on Saturday, so maybe he'll shoot above 50% in that one. He's trending up.

Lauri Markkanen didn't get much help during a 135-105 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday, scoring 27 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and five 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He scored 15 of the first 21 points for the Bulls, including a run with 10 points in 90 seconds. The Bulls were actually leading at the end of the first, but their defense fell apart with 42 points given up in the third. Markkanen was in a mini-slump before this strong outing, failing to hit 20 points in five straight. There was some concern that he is still playing through his elbow injury, but e is starting to show more confidence in his shooting. The Bulls are bad, but Lauri should be a mid-round player going forward with some early-round upside.

Deandre Ayton double-doubled against the Raptors on Thursday, scoring 15 points (6-of-8 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with 17 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 35 minutes.

Ayton grabbed at least 17 rebounds for the fifth time so far this season. He hasn't been as good of late, posting late-sixth round value over the last two weeks, but he's still comfortably holding top-25 value in 9-category leagues on the season. The number one overall pick is averaging 14.8 points, 11.0 boards and 1.6 blocks over his last five outings. Peaks and valleys are natural for rookies, but Ayton's peaks are higher than most.

Bobby Portis got the start against the Nuggets on Thursday, making 4-of-13 from the field for 10 points with 13 rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He even played some garbage time at the four next to Cris Felicio. Portis is not shooting the ball well at all with this dud and a 1-of-11 on Tuesday, so it's possible his elbow injury from last week could be affecting him. Still, Wendell Carter Jr. (thumb) could miss additional time and Portis should be taking plenty of shots, so he's worth owning in standard leagues while WCJ is out.

Devin Booker led the Suns with 30 points (10-of-21 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs), adding two rebounds, eight assists and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

Booker looked much better in his second game back after returning from a three-game absence last time out. He struggled and scored just eight points on Tuesday, but rebounded with his ninth 30-point game of the season in this one. Booker continues to put up career-best assist numbers on a nightly basis, in addition to his already very good scoring numbers. Hopefully he can stay healthy down the stretch.

Joel Embiid fought through a back injury during a 120-96 win over the Pacers on Thursday, scoring 22 points with 13 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, three blocks, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

It was very clear that Embiid was playing through his stiff lower back. The TNT broadcast reported that the back issue comes and goes for Embiid, and it may not be going away. Embiid was getting treatment throughout the game and going through stretching exercises, as well. Embiid did look a little better in the second half, and coach Brett Brown credited the med staff for taking care of their franchise center. He's probably going to be on the injury report for a few games, but the good news is the 76ers won't get a back-to-back set until Feb. 12-13.

Jimmy Butler had one of his better offensive showings against the Pacers on Thursday, making 10-of-17 from the field for 27 points with five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

His eight dimes are the most he's had with the 76ers and it's his first game in 2019 without a turnover. The 76ers as a team looked awesome in the first half with 19 assists after a 21-dime first half in the last game. They also have the No. 1 offense in the Eastern Conference over the last seven games thanks to their NBA-best 72.0% assist percentage over that span. All the talk of Jimmy not fitting with the offense may be gone for a while as Jimmy puts up early-round value in standard leagues.

Pascal Siakam beat the buzzer to win the game on Thursday against the Suns, scoring 10 points (4-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes.

With Kawhi Leonard resting, Siakam got the call with the game tied late in the fourth quarter. They gave him the ball and cleared out and he took Mikal Bridges off the dribble to hit a tough lefty lay-up off the glass to give the Raptors the win. He only scored 10 points, but he notched his fourth double-double in his last six games. Siakam continues making his case for an All-Star bid, as well as the league's Most Improved Player award.
Jan 17 - 10:30 PM

Kyle Lowry played 40 minutes against the Suns on Thursday, scoring 16 points (4-of-15 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs) with nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

Lowry was originally slated to sit this one out, but he woke up feeling better than expected and gave it a go. He became the 65th player in NBA history to surpass the 5,000 career assist mark with his performance against Phoenix. Lowry has struggled shooting of late, just 30.9% over his last five, but his other numbers have still been there. He might gets some nights off down the stretch, but he's still a must-start when active.
Jan 17 - 10:15 PM

Thaddeus Young scored a season-high 27 points against the 76ers on Thursday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Revenge game? He likes to score against the 76ers with his previous season-high coming against them, scoring 26 points back on Dec. 14. His three triples tonight match his season-high, and his offensive game is about as strong as it's been all season. In January, Thad averaged 16.9 points, 6.7 boards, 2.1 dimes, 1.9 steals and 1.0 treys on a 64/70/64 shooting line in those seven. He's pretty close to must-start territory.
