Stephen Curry scored a game-high 25 points against the Suns during a 106-87 win on Saturday with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

The Suns were making a run to start the fourth quarter and cut the GSW lead to seven, but Curry checked in with seven minutes left and ballooned the lead to 18 in just four minutes of action. The Warriors don't have the best record in the NBA anymore, but they're still arguably the best team in the NBA right now. They'll play the Hawks on Friday, so that should be fun.

Draymond Green had one of his usual stat-stuffing lines against the Suns on Saturday with nine points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He destroyed the Suns on defense and the scorekeepers looked to have missed another block on Eric Bledsoe today. Green just won't stop putting up numbers and he's going to be a fantasy stud all season. Even with the Warriors at full strength up front, Green has still been a top-30 fantasy player in the past two weeks.

Goran Dragic had a season-high seven turnovers against the Warriors on Saturday during a 106-87 loss, adding 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He only had four turnovers combined in his previous four games, so the careless amount of turnovers was a surprise. In that five-game span, Dragic averaged just 12.6 points, 2.8 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 triples on 39.1 percent from the field. He's cooling off after a nice run a couple weeks ago and should be a top 35-60 guy the rest of the way.

Gerald Green played 13 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with eight points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was a DNP-CD on Friday and coach Jeff Hornacek said he just tried a rotation without Green. The Suns won that game against the Bulls, so that's probably not a good sign. That said, the four-fingered assassin is worth owning in standard leagues for now.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len did not score in 19 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with six boards, one assist and two blocks.

The Warriors can make it tough on a center, especially with Andrew Bogut in the lineup. Len has cooled off considerably in his last five, averaging 6.8 points, 6.6 boards and 1.4 blocks on 57.7 percent from the field. He's one of a handful of young centers capable of blocking shots while making a decent amount of free throws, so he should remain owned in standard leagues.
Feb 1 - 2:06 AM

O.J. Mayo's hot streak continued on Saturday during a 95-88 win over the Bucks with 17 points, seven rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

In his previous 10, Mayo averaged 14.2 points, 3.1 boards, 3.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.9 treys on 53.3 percent from the field in 25.7 minutes. Mayo's ceiling isn't going to be too high because he doesn't play big minutes, but he's doing enough to put on the end of your bench in a standard league.
Feb 1 - 2:04 AM

Jared Dudley stayed hot against the Blazers on Saturday night with 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

He lit it up on Thursday in his first start with a full 17-point line. Ersan Ilyasova (groin) is likely going to miss more time and the Bucks have looked amazing in their last two games with their smaller lineup. Dudley has enough upside to grab in standard leagues. Although, he would likely cool off once Ilyasova is back.
Feb 1 - 2:00 AM

John Henson made his second consecutive start on Saturday against the Blazers with 14 points, eight rebounds, one assist and four blocks in 27 minutes.

He had a double-double on Thursday and is clearly capitalizing on his chance with Zaza Pachulia (calf) out of the lineup. Pachulia is a slow healer, so Henson could get some extra run for a while. If you want to give him a look in even a shallow league and see if he can keep it going, it's not a bad idea.
Feb 1 - 1:55 AM

Nicolas Batum was quiet against the Bucks during a 95-88 loss on Saturday with five points, seven boards, four assists and two steals in 37 minutes.

Needless to say, this month was not Batum's best. In his 14 January games, he only had a 14.7 usage rate with averages of 8.3 points, 5.6 boards, 4.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 triples on 35.0 percent from the field. His fantasy owners should think about benching him for now, but cutting him is not an option. Additionally, the Blazers have gone 2-8 in their last 10.
Feb 1 - 1:48 AM

Damian Lillard made just 6-of-19 from the field for 19 points against Bucks on Saturday with five rebounds, nine assists, three steals, one block, one 3-pointer and six turnovers.

He had a bad game on Friday and is just 2-of-19 from beyond the arc in his last two games. Lillard looked like he was going to take over after being snubbed from the All-Star Game, but it's been the opposite. He is still taking plenty of shots and that's not going to change, so it's just a matter of time until he turns it on again. There's a good chance that will happen on Tuesday against the Jazz.
Feb 1 - 1:44 AM

Thomas Robinson started the second half of Saturday's game against the Bucks, finishing with four points, six rebounds, three steals and one block in 24 minutes.

Coach Terry Stotts has started three different centers in his last three halves. Basically, trying to solve a Stotts rotation is harder to do than simultaneously solving a Rubik's Cube and a New York Times crossword puzzle while looking at a Magic Eye. In other words, leave Robinson on the wire.
Feb 1 - 1:35 AM

Zach Randolph logged his 12 consecutive double-double against the Thunder during an 85-74 win on Saturday, scoring 21 points with 18 rebounds, three assists and one block in 37 minutes.

He made just 8-of-20 from the field in his worst game based on field goal percentage in 2015. Randolph averaged 20.0 points and 13.7 boards on 58.5 percent from the field in his previous 10 and is playing a little better than expected right now. It's not a bad idea to try and sell high while he's healthy.
Feb 1 - 1:30 AM

Mike Conley returned to the lineup against the Thunder on Saturday with 14 points, six rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He missed two games with a wrist injury and only made 5-of-16 from the field in the win. Conley has not played well in each of his last three games, averaging just 8.0 points, 1.7 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.3 treys on 32.1 percent from the field. This might be his lowest value all year and we expect him to heat up against the Suns on Monday.
Feb 1 - 1:26 AM

Danny Green connected on five more 3-pointers on Saturday against the Clippers, finishing with 16 points, two boards, three steals and three blocks in 30 minutes.

He has now hit nine 3-pointers over his last two games, and it appears that he is finally over his shooting slump. Green's ability to produce in all categories makes him very valuable in fantasy, and this line confirms that he will be a must-own player for the rest of the way.
Feb 1 - 1:23 AM
Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan scored just four points in a loss to the Clippers on Saturday, adding eight boards, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

He tied his season-low for points in a game tonight, and it was obvious that he struggled to keep up with the athleticism of the Clippers. While Duncan will play much better than this on most nights, don't be surprised if coach Gregg Popovich starts to reduce his minutes in order to keep him fresh for the playoffs.
