Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 114-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding 27 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
The Warriors assists were all over the place early with 20 in the first half, which was the second straight time they did so in the first half. As for Curry, he also made his 277th triple this season for the third most in NBA history -- he has the first and second most. Not that anyone should've been worried about Curry's shooting slump, but now he's made 52.5 percent from deep with 5.3 treys per game over his last four outings. Expect a big finish until the Warriors lock up their top seed.
Draymond Green scored a season-high 23 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.
It's just his fourth 20-plus scoring game of the season. Green has scored in single digits for each of his last four games, which was somewhat surprising due to how he did have some added usage while Kevin Durant (knee) was out. Green's assists have still been great and the Warriors handed out 37 dimes in this win. The Warriors still only have a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs, so they may not rest too many games until they lock up the No. 1 seed.
Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.
He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point.
Willie Cauley-Stein scored 12 points during a 114-100 loss to the Warriors on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes.
He hasn't quite lit it up, but Cauley-Stein is still getting it done in the starting lineup. In his last five, WCS averaged 11.6 points, 6.0 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.4 steals. He's a little like Nerlens Noel and should be owned in all leagues.
Georgios Papagiannis played a career-high 27 minutes against the Warriors on Friday, scoring seven points with four rebounds, one assist and one block.
With Kosta Koufos having another bad game, it probably won't be long until Papagiannis is starting. He's been a great offensive rebounder lately and does have a 19.2 usage rate since he's been freed in his last four. Papagiannis isn't going to be consistent, but he could be a double-double guy with a block going forward.
Buddy Hield turned in career-highs 22 points, eight boards and seven dimes against the Warriors on Friday, adding two steals and four 3-pointers.
He's about as hot as he could be, matching his previous career-high 21 points on Wednesday. The Kings are resting their point guards now to allow Hield to have the ball more, and he does have at least 32 minutes in each of his last four. He could disappoint his next time out, but Hield looks like an add in standard leagues.
Kosta Koufos scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 14 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.
He'll get more rest going forward and there is just no upside in fantasy right now. Even if you're in a 40-man league, go pick up someone else. The Kings may even shut him down to look more at their youth.
Ty Lawson scored 20 points with two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Warriors on Friday.
He did his damage early with 18 points in the first half, but the Kings went away from him in the second half. Considering Lawson will likely be rested for several games, he can stay on the wire in fantasy.
