DeAndre Jordan notched 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting on Sunday, adding 11 rebounds, one steal, one block and zero turnovers.

Jordan is shooting better than 75 percent in March, pushing his season average to a league-leading 70.6 percent. He's shot 70+ percent twice before in his career, and he joins Wilt Chamberlain as the only qualifying players to do that in a full season. He's winning three categories for his owners on a weekly basis.

Sam Dekker logged 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's win over the Thunder, tallying eight points, one 3-pointer, five boards and one assist.

Mike D'Antoni hinted prior to the game that Dekker will have more minutes coming his way over the next few weeks with Ryan Anderson (ankle) on the sidelines, but with the rest of the guys in Houston healthy, it's unlikely Dekker will be able to do enough to make a difference in most leagues.

Austin Rivers started Sunday's game in place of J.J. Redick (sprained right ankle), shooting 4-of-13 with a pair of 3-pointers for 10 points, nine rebounds and four assists in 43 minutes.

In 28 starts this season, the coach's son has averaged 16.3 points on 46.3 percent shooting, 2.3 triples, 2.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 0.7 steals in 34.3 minutes. He played well tonight, other than the shooting, and would be worth a look if Redick misses more games.

Chris Paul missed a potential game-winner vs. the Kings on Sunday, but he still finished with 17 points (4-of-9 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), nine assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointer, one steal and one block.

The Clippers came in half a game behind Utah for the No. 4 seed and homecourt advantage in the first round, but they blew a huge lead for an inexplicable loss at home today. The good news is that the tight race should encourage Doc Rivers to play his key veterans heavy minutes down the stretch, reducing the likelihood of DNP-CDs.
Mar 26 - 7:12 PM

Jamal Crawford followed up Saturday's big game with only nine points on 2-of-12 shooting, adding two assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

Crawford dropped a season-high 28 points against Utah's tough defense yesterday, and fatigue might have played a role here -- thanks to a quirk in the schedule, the Clips were playing their second straight matinee game. "Back-to-back 12:30 games are brutal," Doc Rivers said. "Players are creature of habits, and the first game you take them out of it and then you do it again the next." Crawford has been scoring efficiently over the past few weeks, with plenty of 3-pointers, but that's about the extent of his value.

Nene scored 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes off the bench.

Nene has actually been a sneaky top-75 player in standard 9-cat leagues over the past month with averages of 11.3 points, 5.5 boards, 1.0 steal and just 0.6 turnovers per contest on 63.1 percent shooting. That being said, he's really not much more than a low-end guy to own in deep roto-leagues.
Mar 26 - 7:10 PM

Blake Griffin shot 6-of-11 from the field to score 17 points on Sunday, adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers.

Griffin did his damage in 32 minutes and the shooting was a welcome sight -- in his past three games he was a combined 17-of-48 from the field (35.4 percent). The Clippers struggled to find him down the stretch, however, as their offense sputtered and they gave up a double-digit lead, resulting in a crushing loss that leaves them a full game behind the No. 4 seed Jazz in the standings.
Mar 26 - 7:07 PM

Clint Capela produced 11 points, nine rebounds, one steal, two blocks and one turnovers in 22 minutes during Sunday's 137-125 win over the Thunder.

The Rockets obliterated the Thunder in every aspect of the game, putting up 80 points on 71.4 percent shooting through the first half of action, which set season-highs in both those categories. Capela probably would have played more if the game weren't such a blowout, but he still got the job done for his owners.
Mar 26 - 7:07 PM

Paul Pierce scored two points with six rebounds and one turnover in 16 minutes off the Clippers' bench on Sunday.

Pierce has been a DNP-CD more often than not this season, but he's been in the rotation for each of the past seven games. Doc Rivers might be trying to find him some rhythm with the playoffs on the horizon, but either way he's no longer a fantasy asset.
Mar 26 - 7:05 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein hit a game-winning layup with 1.8 seconds remaining on Sunday, finishing with eight points, 14 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, as WCS corralled a miss to give his team the late lead -- Chris Paul subsequently missed a jumper that could have won it, and the Kings went home with a truly shocking road win. Cauley-Stein is rolling along with top-75 roto value over the past few weeks.
Mar 26 - 7:05 PM

Buddy Hield caught fire down the stretch of Sunday's 98-97 comeback win in L.A., finishing with 15 points, three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Hield finished 5-of-12 from the field but he made them when it mattered, going 0-of-5 from deep before hitting three straight during a furious fourth-quarter comeback. He scored at least 20 points in his previous two games and continues to look like a long-term piece for the rebuilding Kings. He's in a perfect situation for fantasy purposes.
Mar 26 - 7:04 PM

Lou Williams seemingly couldn't miss during Sunday's win over the Thunder, racking up 31 points, seven triples, three boards, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench.

Williams was en fuego all game long and didn't even miss his first shot until the fourth quarter rolled around. He ended his evening going 11-of-15 from the field, 7-of-8 from beyond the arc and 2-of-2 from the charity stripe to give him an elite true shooting percentage of 97.6. Mike D'Antoni hinted prior to the game that Williams will be looking at an expanded role with Ryan Anderson (ankle) set to miss the next two weeks, so it looks like Sweet Lou is back to being a must-own player in all leagues.
Mar 26 - 7:02 PM

Darren Collison started Sunday's game and had 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four assists, one board and one steal in 28 minutes.

DC was rested on Friday and the random DNPs make it hard to trust him in critical situations for fantasy purposes. He got a boost tonight with Ty Lawson (stiff knee) ruled out at the last minute, but it doesn't sound like Lawson will miss too much time with the injury. It's worth noting that DC was also riding the bench while Langston Galloway (six points, three assists in 25 minutes) played PG during the Kings' huge run to steal this win in L.A.
Mar 26 - 7:01 PM

Tyreke Evans returned as a starter on Sunday with eight points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 21 minutes vs. the Clippers.

Evans was coming off a day of planned rest, but he recently said that he's "getting into a rhythm right now." He's worked to develop an outside shot, in order to reduce the wear-and-tear of constantly driving to the rim, but Sacramento is still going to limit him to under 30 minutes per game down the stretch. Throw in the random DNPs, and he's simply not an appealing fantasy asset.
Mar 26 - 7:00 PM

Anthony Tolliver returned from a rest day to finish Sunday's thrilling comeback victory with 15 points 5-of-6 shooting, with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

Tolliver added three rebounds and one block in 23 minutes of action tonight. He's going to get occasional DNP-CDs down the stretch, even if the Kings don't eventually shut him down, which makes him undesirable even as a 3-point specialist.
