Harrison Barnes finished with 24 points in Monday's 96-89 win against the visiting Heat.
Barnes hit nine of his 18 field-goal attempts while snagging four rebounds and adding an assist. He was also a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe to please his rotisserie owners. Despite dropping two dozen on the Heat, Barnes is still averaging just 18.5 PPG in 11 February outings, or about 1.5 points short of his season average. He averaged 20-plus in each of his first three full months, so February has been a challenge for Barnes and his fantasy owners. Feb 27 - 11:52 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 19 points in a start at power forward against the Pelicans on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Considering the Mavs do not want to bench Dirk Nowitzki and they do want to start Nerlens Noel, that means Harry B will go back to his more conventional small forward spot. Barnes does take a 7.1 usage rate hit when he's next to Dirk this season, but his efficiency is also a lot better. Expect Barnes to be a mid-round guy going forward.
Feb 26 - 12:23 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 20 points on 9-of-17 shooting vs. the Wolves on Friday.

Mark Cuban had high praise for Barnes over the break and indicated that he views him as the go-to player for the Mavericks on offense. "We always talk about when is Dirk going to be our second-best player," Cuban said. "I mean, I think we’re past that now. And no one’s happier about that than Dirk." Barnes added six rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes, and he will continue to be the focal point of the offense going forward. Nowitzki finished with eight points on 4-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks.

Harrison Barnes was held to eight points on 4-13 shooting vs. the Magic on Saturday, adding four boards and two assists in 30 minutes.

This was just the second time that he's been held to single-digit points all season, a testament to how consistent he's been as the go-to guy on offense for the Mavs. "He’s been great. There is no other word to describe it," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. "He’s totally committed to being a great player. His work ethic is second to none of any player I’ve ever been around as a player or coach. He is really a relentless worker, loves the game, came here because he relished the opportunity to take on a bigger responsibility." He has top-70 value on the season in standard leagues and we don't see any reason why that will change.

Harrison Barnes scored 31 points during a 112-105 overtime win against the Jazz on Thursday, adding four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 43 minutes.

That's the second most he's scored in his career and he gets a bunch of credit for doing this against the Jazz defense. Harry B continues to live in the isolation sets with 26.3 percent of his possessions coming in that set, ranking fourth in the NBA for total points in that play this season. Barnes has held seventh-round value in his last 10 and his owners should expect similar production going forward.
Feb 10 - 12:11 AM

Harrison Barnes hit 9-of-16 shots for 24 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 37 minutes of Monday's 104-97 win over the Cavaliers.

While rookie Yogi Ferrell's big start at point guard will probably grab the headlines from this game, Harry B was outstanding, despite the return of Dirk Nowitzki. Barnes' usage rate goes up when Dirk's out, but he was everywhere tonight. Barnes is having a great season and has posted fifth-round value, so it's a little surprising this this was just his second double-double of the season, with the first coming in Game 5 back on Nov. 4.
Jan 31 - 12:48 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 31 points in a 109-98 loss to the Thunder on Thursday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

It was the usual Harry B isolation fest in this game. Dirk Nowitzki (rest) not playing was helpful for Barnes because Barnes gets a 5.4 usage rate bump when Dirk is off the court -- also a bump in efficiency. He's been terrific all season with fifth-round value and doesn't look to be slowing down.
Jan 26 - 11:37 PM

Harrison Barnes was held to just six points on 3-of-12 shooting Sunday, to go with five boards, two assists, one turnover and nothing else through 27 minutes of playing time.

Barnes just couldn’t buy a bucket, and unfortunately, this lackluster outing snapped his 44-game streak of scoring in double figures. That being said, Barnes has been solid more often than not this season, so his owners can anticipate a bounce-back performance on Wednesday with a matchup against the Knicks.
Jan 22 - 6:02 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 15 points with seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes on Thursday against the Heat.

Barnes struggled immensely in the second half with James Johnson covering him, making just one field goal. That being said, he still had a decent evening considering the matchup and continues to average a career-high 20.6 points per game. The Mavs head back home to take on the Jazz on Friday night, a team Barnes has faced off against twice and is averaging 35.6 minutes, 17.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 steal per game against.
Jan 19 - 10:12 PM

Harrison Barnes went 6-of-16 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe on Sunday, on his way to 13 points, three boards, one steal, one block and one turnover in 32 minutes.

Barnes has impressively hit double figures in the scoring department in all 40 games this season, and he's been a steady mid-round guy all year long. He's having a career-year in Dallas, and as one of the younger guys on the roster, he's not in any danger of getting hit with random rest days down the stretch.
Jan 15 - 5:42 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 30 points with four 3-pointers in Monday's loss to the Wolves.

The four triples were a season high. Barnes finished 13-of-23 from the field with two boards and one assist, but wasn't able to get himself to the line. He's shooting a blistering 56.3 percent from the field over his last five games, averaging 24.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steal, 0.6 blocks and 2.2 triples in that span. He's crushing his ADP right now and gets two more great matchups with the Suns and Wolves (again) this week.
Jan 9 - 11:22 PM

Dirk Nowitzki has been impressed with Harrison Barnes' development this season.

"He's making plays [from the area above the free throw line] that he didn't make a month ago," said Dirk of Barnes. "He's finding shooters on the perimeter. He knows he's getting double-teamed some when he gets too deep on those [isolation] plays, and he's making good plays." Barnes has been a steady mid-round guy on the year with averages of 21.7 points, 5.8 boards, 1.3 dimes, 1.0 triple and just 1.3 turnovers per game on 48.1 percent shooting, and he's showing no signs of slowing down.

Jan 4 - 1:19 PM

Harrison Barnes scored 26 points on 8-of-18 shooting in Tuesday's 113-105 win over the Wizards.

He also made it to the free throw line nine times and connected on eight of them, adding seven rebounds, five assists, one block and two triples in 35 minutes. He's crushing his ADP right now and was coming off a 25-point game against his former Warriors, so his fantasy owners are likely sitting pretty. The Mavs probably don't miss Chandler Parsons.
Jan 3 - 11:41 PM

Harrison Barnes got some revenge against his former team on Friday, scoring 25 points on 11-of-18 shooting.

He's come a long way since his days as a Warrior and it showed tonight, as Barnes added three rebounds, one assist, two steals and three triples in just 28 minutes. With the Mavs tanking, Barnes should continue to be the best fantasy asset to own in Dallas down the stretch and should be treated like a top-75 player in standard leagues.

Harrison Barnes had 17 points, nine rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 6-of-17 shooting in Thursday's 101-89 win over the Lakers.

Harry B is averaging 21 points and 6.4 rebounds on 46 percent shooting over his last five games, but isn't doing much with steals, blocks or 3-pointers these days. If he was, his value would obviously be much higher.
