Stephen Curry went berserk in the third quarter during a 147-140 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday, finishing with 41 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and nine 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He hit seven treys in the third quarter in a comeback victory, and it was his NBA-best 23rd quarter with at least 20 points over the last five years. The Warriors and Pelicans set an NBA record for 3-pointers made, and the Warriors are the first team to score at least 140 in consecutive games since Phoenix in 2009. Curry is off to a ridiculous start in 2019, averaging 34.1 points, 5.3 boards, 6.0 dimes, 0.7 steals, 0.3 blocks and an absurd 7.3 treys over those seven. Steph is playing his best ball of the season and the Dubs get DeMarcus Cousins on Friday night.
Jan 17 - 2:09 AM

Kevin Durant pulled down a season-high 15 boards against the Pelicans on Wednesday, adding 30 points with four assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It's his 16th 30-point game of the season and sixth 30-10 on the year. Durant has also made five-plus treys in back-to-back games for the first time this season, and his blocks are back on the rise with at least one in every game in 2019. It'll be interesting to see how KD's usage is affected with DeMarcus Cousins in the mix, but KD is doing enough in other areas to soften the potential blow of Boogie's return. He is a top-five player in fantasy leagues.
Jan 17 - 2:00 AM

Draymond Green handed out a season-high 14 assists against the Pelicans on Wednesday, adding 17 points, six rebounds, one block, one steal, one turnover and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

His four 3-pointers are also a season-high in one of Dray's best games of the year. Taking care of the ball has been huge for Green over his last five with 51 dimes to just six turnovers, averaging 5.8 points, 7.2 boards, 10.2 dimes, 1.0 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.0 treys. He won't be scoring much, but he's back to filling up box scores. He likely won't be affected too much by Boogie Cousins returning, and Dray himself tweeted out that Cousins was set to return on Friday.
Jan 17 - 1:54 AM

Andre Iguodala scored 13 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Wednesday with five rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He's been useful off the bench for coach Steve Kerr with the Warriors going with a little more of the Hamptons Five lineup, including over seven minutes on Wednesday. Now that the Warriors get DeMarcus Cousins, they may dial back Iggy's minutes. He's a drop in most leagues after a solid stretch in 2019.
Jan 17 - 1:48 AM

Kevon Looney was productive in a start with seven points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It was a nice farewell for Looney in the first unit today. Coach Steve Kerr hasn't decided the rotation with DeMarcus Cousins, but Boogie will be in the starting lineup. If you were using Looney in a deep league, you can probably drop him.
Jan 17 - 1:43 AM

Draymond Green played 31 minutes on his sore knee and finished Tuesday's 142-111 win over the Nuggets with four points on 1-of-5 shooting, six rebounds, 13 assists and a steal.

Green's scoring has been a tough pill to swallow this season, and the impending debut of DeMarcus Cousins probably isn't going to help his scoring, or rebounding for that matter. Green has scored a total of just 12 points over his last four games, but is also averaging 7.4 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.2 blocks over his last five. He's holding value despite the lack of offense, but there's not a lot of joy that comes from owning him in fantasy right now. The Warriors have rattled off five straight wins and overtook the Nuggets for the best record in the West tonight.
Jan 15 - 11:33 PM

Klay Thompson hit 13-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers for 31 points, three rebounds and three steals in Tuesday's 142-111 win at Denver.

Draymond Green added six rebounds and 13 assists, and Steph Curry and Kevin Durant were dominant in the easy win. The Warriors scored an NBA-record 51 points in the first quarter, and also hit a team-record 10 3-pointers in the first 12 minutes. And the Warriors now sit 0.5 games up on the Nuggets after tonight's statement game.
Jan 15 - 11:28 PM

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant came out firing on all cylinders on Tuesday at Denver in a battle for the best record in the West, and Curry finished with 31 points, six rebounds, four assists and eight 3-pointers in just 30 minutes of the surprisingly easy 142-111 win.

Durant added five triples, hit 11-of-15 shots, and finished with 27 points, four boards, six assists, a steal and a block, while the Warriors scored an NBA-record 51 points in the first quarter. They also hit a team-record 10 3-pointers in the first quarter, and now hold the West's best record at 30-14, putting them 0.5 games up on the Nuggets. The Dubs were determined to make a statement tonight, and they did it in the first 12 minutes. Two of Curry's 3-pointers, which he hit on back-to-back shots, came from another zip code, which you'll see in all the highlight shows over the next 24 hours.
Jan 15 - 11:23 PM

DeMarcus Cousins remains on track to make his season debut on Friday vs. the Clippers.

Cousins is expected to start in his first game back, which will shift Kevon Looney back to the second unit, and Jordan Bell could drop from the rotation entirely once Boogie is fully up to speed. Cousins will likely be dealing with a minutes limit early on, and he might not play in any back-to-back sets this season, but he's close enough that he should be owned everywhere at this point.
Jan 15 - 3:12 PM

Shaun Livingston finished Sunday's hard-fought win in Dallas with two points, one assist and one steal in 14 minutes.

Livingston did spend some time in the locker room in the third quarter, but he soon returned and we'll let you know if he's in danger of missing games. He's not a reliable fantasy asset in typical leagues, of course, so his availability shouldn't matter to most owners.
Jan 13 - 9:42 PM

Kevon Looney was quiet on Sunday with two points, five rebounds, two steals and one assist in 17 minutes of action.

Foul trouble took Looney out of this game and both teams closed with small-ball lineups, so the opportunity wasn't really there. DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) said he's hoping to return on Jan. 18 or 21, and coach Steve Kerr said he'll start Cousins as soon as possible, so fantasy owners relying on Looney should be developing for an exit plan.
Jan 13 - 9:42 PM

Alfonzo McKinnie scored 10 points in 13 minutes of action on Sunday, making 4-of-5 shots with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one block.

McKinnie has proven to be a valuable rotation player for the Warriors as they've compensated for various injuries and the loss of Pat McCaw. This was just his fourth double-digit scoring game of the season, however, and his first since Nov. 5, which says plenty about his lack of fantasy appeal.
Jan 13 - 9:41 PM

Draymond Green returned after tweaking his left knee on Sunday, finishing with four points, seven assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block.

Green limped off the court just before halftime, grabbing his left knee, and he also spent some time in the locker room in the second half. He had a clutch block on Jalen Brunson's layup attempt with 33.0 seconds left and didn't seem limited, but as a precaution we'll consider him probable for Tuesday's road game in Denver.
Jan 13 - 9:40 PM

Stephen Curry lit up for 48 points vs. Dallas on Sunday, hitting 17-of-32 shots with an 11-of-19 mark from downtown, adding six rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal.

Steph came in shooting better on the road from downtown (47.8% vs. 41.5%) and overall (51.6% vs. 46.3%), and the trend carried through tonight. The Warriors are now 11-1 all time when he makes double-digit 3-pointers and this is Steph's 12th such game, which furthers his own NBA record -- the next-closest players are Klay Thompson (four games) and J.R. Smith (three games). Despite a lengthy stretch of DNPs in November, Steph has been a first-round value in almost any fantasy format.
Jan 13 - 9:39 PM

Shaun Livingston (knee) played nine minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday with three points, one rebound and one assist in nine minutes.

The Warriors destroyed the Bulls, so Livingston lost a handful of minutes to Quinn Cook in garbage time. He has no fantasy value while Stephen Curry is healthy.
