Kyle Korver made all four shots from the field and all four from the line for 14 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
Not bad. He drove his fantasy owners crazy during the regular season, but Korver is kind of rolling now when it counts for the Hawks. In his six games during this series, Korver averaged 12.2 points, 5.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.0 treys on a pristine 67.3 true shooting percentage. He'll be very important in the second round and will likely have a mini 3-point contest in a head-to-head matchup with J.R. Smith at shooting guard. Apr 28 - 11:05 PM

Kyle Korver scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, adding two boards, one assist, five steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He averaged 0.8 steals during the regular season, so to see him record five tonight seems like a fluke. However, Korver has now scored in double digits in four straight games after being held to two points in Game 1, so he's heating up at the perfect time for the Hawks. He's also hit 16 3-pointers over his last four games.
Apr 26 - 11:15 PM

Kyle Korver fouled out in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

He was in foul trouble for basically the entire game. Korver was on fire in the fourth quarter to help bring the Hawks back after trailing by 20 in the first half. This was also his second good game in a row with 17 points in Game 2. Fantasy owners can start to have some confidence in using him again.
Apr 22 - 10:55 PM

Kyle Korver looked great in Tuesday's win over Boston, scoring 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Yes, this is the same player that scored two points on 1-of-10 shooting in Game 1. Korver looked like a new man tonight and the Celtics didn't have an answer for him with Avery Bradley (hamstring) on the shelf. Korver was held to single-digit points in his previous four games, so it's important not to overreact to this line.
Apr 19 - 9:51 PM

Kyle Korver made 1-of-10 from the field for two points with nine rebounds, one assist and two turnovers against the Celtics on Saturday.

It's almost like he and Marcus Smart swapped jumpers. Korver was actually heating up in April before this dud, making 43.3 percent from deep in his previous six games. Expect an improvement on Monday.
Apr 16 - 10:39 PM

Kyle Korver scored five points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

So much for the hot streak. Korver was getting it going over his previous three, averaging 13.0 points, 3.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 3.3 treys in that span. He's not expected to rest, so keep him active in standard leagues for threes and efficiency. He doesn't score enough to use in DFS.
Apr 9 - 10:18 PM

Kyle Korver scored 14 points with five rebounds, four assists, three blocks and four 3-pointers against the Raptors on Thursday.

The Raptors left him open in the corner quite a bit in this game. Korver is starting to click since the break, making 2.1 treys per game in his previous 23 games. A hot Korver will go a long way for the Hawks and his defensive efforts have been better than usual, too. He might have some nice value the rest of the way.
Apr 7 - 11:21 PM

Kyle Korver scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with four rebounds, four 3-pointers and one assist in 41 minutes.

This was the 11th time this season that Korver had registered at least four 3-pointers in a game, and he posted a sterling 87.5 effective field goal percentage in this one. Consistency has been an issue for Korver this season, so it'll be interesting to see if he can keep his momentum going into Tuesday with a favorable matchup against the Suns.
Apr 2 - 2:31 AM

Kyle Korver made just 1-of-6 shots to finish Wednesday's loss in Toronto with three points, five boards and one assist in 24 minutes.

Atlanta trailed by 22 points after three quarters and none of their starters logged more than 25 minutes, so Korver's low playing time isn't purely a reflection of his play. He was coming off a strong effort vs. the Bulls on Monday but inconsistency has been par for the course this season -- if you're deploying him as a 3-point specialist, tonight's dud shouldn't dissuade you.
Mar 30 - 10:14 PM

Kyle Korver finished Wednesday's game 5-of-10 from downtown for 15 points with two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 32 minutes of action.

"We've got to find a way to get Kyle cleaner, more free," coach Mike Budenholzer said before the game. Korver has taken 44.7 percent of his 3-point attempts with no defender within four feet of him, compared to 50.9 percent last season, so the looks he's getting are at least part of the equation. Despite tonight's solid performance, he's little more than a 3-point specialist.
Mar 23 - 10:14 PM

Kyle Korver was held to eight points, four boards, two 3-pointers and one turnover vs. the Jazz on Tuesday.

He was coming off three straight decent performances with averages of 12.0 points, 4.3 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 3.0 treys, but he’s been inconsistent all season. Regardless, if you need a healthy dose of 3-pointers, Korver is your guy.
Mar 8 - 11:43 PM

Kyle Korver got hot from beyond the arc during the Hawks trouncing of the Lakers on Friday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting to go with four 3-pointers, five boards and three assists in 29 minutes.

With just one missed shot, Korver registered a ridiculous effective field goal percentage of 116.7 in this one, and this was his second consecutive game scoring in double figures. While consistency has been a major issue for Korver this season, he's managed to work himself into a mid-round evaluation over the past month with averages of 9.9 points, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 treys per game on 47.1 percent shooting. It'll be interesting to see what he can do Saturday vs. the Clippers.
Mar 5 - 2:11 AM

Kyle Korver scored 11 points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday with seven boards, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was held to single-digit points in his three previous outings, so his inconsistency has been maddening. Korver is barely holding onto top-120 value in standard leagues despite playing 30.3 minutes per game, but he's still worth holding onto if you're looking for 3-pointers
Mar 2 - 2:11 AM

Kyle Korver was quiet in 22 minutes vs. the Hornets, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with four boards, one assist and one turnover.

The victory pushed Atlanta two games ahead of Charlotte in the Southeast division, leaving them in a virtual tie with the Heat. It wasn't a great night for Korver, who has hit another lull after a solid stretch coming out of the All-Star break. This was his lowest playing time since Feb. 5, a consequence of the score and solid play from Tim Hardaway Jr. (11 points), but Korver is still worth holding for specialist value in 12-team leagues.
Feb 28 - 6:30 PM

Kyle Korver scored just five points on 2-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with three assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and one block in 31 minutes.

While Korver has played better over the past month, owning averages of 8.8 points, 1.9 treys, 2.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.4 turnovers per game, he’s still shooting just 41.5 percent from the field during that span which has limited him to late-round value in standard leagues. It doesn’t seem likely he’ll be able to enter the mid-round equation during the final two months of the season.
