Steven Adams filled up the stat sheet against the Knicks on Thursday, making 5-of-5 from the field for 12 points with five rebounds, one assist, three blocks and five steals in 30 minutes.

All five of his shots were within eight feet with two alley-oops and two dunks, so expect the Thunder to give him easy shots on offense. Overall, Adams finds himself in a better position this year with Enes Kanter gone, and the team probably can't get away with using Patrick Patterson at center for more than 15 minutes or so. That means Adams has a chance to increase his 29.9 minutes per game from last year. He has some fantasy value for field goal percentage, boards and defensive stats.

Blake Griffin scored 29 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Lakers during a 108-92 victory on Thursday.

Sure, this does come with a Staples-size grain of salt against the Lakers, but Griffin looked great in the post Chris Paul era. He had a 112 pace for his minutes out there and he attempted six shots from deep as the offensive focal point. Coach Doc Rivers has given plenty of indications he wants Griffin to grow even more, including playing him at the five "a lot." If he can stay healthy and make free throws, he's set for a magnificent season.

Patrick Beverley scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He clearly wanted to win this game and apparently he had some things to say about Lonzo Ball after the game. "Weak [expletive]. Bring him out on the court with me and I will tear his [expletive] up," Beverley said, per ESPN's Marc Spears. Quote aside, he's in a great position for a career year and should have more shots going his way. If for some reason he's available, add him in all standard leagues.

DeAndre Jordan scored 14 points with 24 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

The best part is he made all four from the line. You could call this his most dominant rebounding game of his career. In his five other games with more than 24 boards, he ranged from 25-27 in total boards while his minutes were much higher in the 39-41 range. Part of the reason is that the Clippers were flying in pace today, which could still be partly due to the Lakers. Regardless, Jordan is a lock to be a top-three rebounder and he could even score more, too.

Danilo Gallinari scored 11 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He's in a much different offense this year, but once again he should be running a lot. Gallinari did have a mid-foot sprain in the preseason, but he looked fine and just missed shots. He may not be able to match his strong free throw rate, but Gallo should still be a mid-round guy while he's healthy.
Oct 20 - 2:23 AM

Milos Teodosic got the start in his first NBA game on Thursday, scoring six points with one rebound, six assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Lakers.

While he didn't shoot the ball well with a 2-of-9 line from the field, he was in control of this offense. Impressively, the Clippers ran at a 114 pace while Milos played and he did take six shots from deep -- he shot the ball well overseas, too. Teodosic should be owned in all standard leagues.
Oct 20 - 2:19 AM

Lou Williams scored 12 points with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

We always talk about him as a scorer, but perhaps Williams' passing has been the highlight of his time with the Clippers. He'll get to the line, hit his triples, and he should add other non-scoring stats, so he should be owned in all standard leagues.
Oct 20 - 2:14 AM

Wes Johnson scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He is playing both forward spots for the Clippers, which is something coach Doc Rivers has done before. Even with some added pace helping Johnson's strengths, he still won't play enough while the team is healthy. Although, we all know that's not exactly Danilo Gallinari's calling card.
Oct 20 - 2:08 AM

Sam Dekker grabbed one rebound in five minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He played all of his minutes in the fourth with true garbage time accounting for 3:24. Dekker is behind Wes Johnson for now and he did play some four, but he missed most of the preseason due to an oblique. Maybe that'll change.
