Matt Barnes couldn't find the range vs. Phoenix, shooting 1-of-9 from the field for four points in 26 minutes of action.

He helped fantasy owners in other ways, fortunately, adding five rebounds, two assists and two steals during the Clippers' 120-100 road win. Barnes tends to run hot and cold but overall he's a steady top-100 value with averages of 9.8 points, 1.7 threes, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks, in addition to typically solid FG and FT percentages.

The Suns didn't have an answer for Blake Griffin on Sunday, as he scored 23 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and only one turnover in 36 minutes.

Phoenix is middle-of-the-pack vs. opposing PFs this season, but Markieff Morris and company didn't stand a chance once Blake got his jump shot going -- he made 11-of-19 shots overall, with only one of his makes within 18 feet of the hoop.
Jan 25 - 9:49 PM

Spencer Hawes finished Sunday's game with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting, adding two 3-pointers and one rebound without any blocks in 16 minutes.

This was Hawes' first double-digit scoring game in January. The Clippers lavished a four-year, $22.7 million deal on him this summer, but he's averaging just 17.0 minutes per game and remains a waiver-wire fixture as long as DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are healthy.

Chris Paul flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's win in Phoenix, getting 23 points with three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, 12 assists and two steals.

He committed an uncharacteristic four turnovers, but made up for it by shooting 7-of-11 from the field and 6-of-7 at the FT line. The Clippers have now won four straight games, tying them with Houston for the No. 4 seed in the unforgiving Western Conference.

The Cavaliers have been in the market for a backup point guard, and they have reportedly expressed interest in Bobby Brown and Will Bynum.

Brown is currently playing in China but wouldn't be able to leave his current team until after their playoffs in March, so a deal is not imminent by any means. Bynum is also playing in China and is said to be a target of several NBA teams including the Cavs so we will definitely continue to track their progress closely. However, both players will likely have limited roles wherever they land so there is no need to add them in almost any format.

Doc Rivers confirmed that the Clippers will sign Dahntay Jones to a second 10-day contract this week.

"He's been great for the young guys, for Austin [Rivers] and C.J. [Wilcox]," Rivers said. "He's a veteran. He's happy to be here. He has a toughness about him as well that I think will be good for us." The 34-year-old Jones is playing only six minutes per game with L.A. and doesn't have any fantasy value.

Blake Griffin made 11-of-14 from the field for 24 points against the Nets during a 123-84 win on Thursday with six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

He's on fire over his last four, averaging 27.5 points, 7.5 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.3 treys and 1.0 turnovers on 63.4 percent from the field and 80.0 percent from the line. Griffin doesn't have a single block in that stretch and he's on pace to set a career low of just 0.4 per game this season. Obviously, his owners shouldn't care if he's scoring the ball this efficiently.

DeAndre Jordan made all seven shots from the field for 14 points with 12 rebounds and two blocks in 26 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

He's now up to 72.9 percent from the field on the season and he's done it without a single make outside of the paint. On the other hand, Jordan is now at 39.3 percent from the line this season. If that holds up, he would be the first player to ever shoot above 70 percent from the field and below 40 percent from the line (minimum of 40 free throw attempts). He's a beast.
Jan 23 - 1:57 AM

Chris Paul handed out 17 assists in just 24 minutes against the Nets on Thursday with six points, three steals and one 3-pointer.

Coach Doc Rivers in 1987 was the last player to hand out 17 assists in less than 25 minutes. The Clippers also set an NBA season high with the 41 assists as a team. Paul has handed out at least nine assists in all but one of his 10 games in 2015, so he certainly could pass John Wall for the league lead in assists per game soon.
Jan 23 - 1:46 AM

C.J. Wilcox was recalled from the D-League on Wednesday.

He likely won't be in the rotation in Los Angeles this season and owners in most fantasy leagues can continue to ignore him. Leave Wilcox on the wire.
Jan 21 - 2:00 PM

Blake Griffin was outstanding against the Celtics during a 102-93 win on Monday with 22 points, nine rebounds, six assists and one steal.

He didn't turn the ball over, made all four shots from the line, and was 9-of-18 from the field. Griffin continues to pass the ball extremely well and handed out 5.6 dimes per game over his previous 10. He's also at 54.5 percent from the field and 76.1 percent from the line in 2015, so his owners shouldn't dwell on his lack of boards and blocks.

Chris Paul was quiet against the Celtics on Monday, making 3-of-9 from the field for nine points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Kudos to Marcus Smart for putting the clamps on CP3 today. Paul's scoring has suddenly fallen off in his last three, scoring just 12.0 points on 29.7 percent from the field. After making an incredible 54.7 percent from the field in November, he's failed to make above 44 percent in both January and December. Expect him to turn it around soon.
Jan 19 - 6:55 PM

Matt Barnes cooled off against the Celtics on Monday with three points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

Besides the empty scoring, it's a solid line from Barnes. He came in red hot with a 26-point game on Saturday and the minutes are still there for Barnes, so there's no need to worry. He is worth owning in standard leagues with less competition for his minutes.
Jan 19 - 6:47 PM

DeAndre Jordan owned the paint against the Celtics on Monday with 19 points, 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and six blocks.

He made 8-of-9 from the field to get him to 72.1 percent from the field on the season. Jordan's six blocks today were a season high and he did it without a single foul -- his second game without a foul all season. This was just the second time a player had at least six blocks with no fouls this season (Pau Gasol). Jordan is almost a lock to lead the NBA in field goal percentage while he has a great chance to lead in boards, as well.

DeAndre Jordan credited Doc Rivers with his evolution as a basketball player.

When he got here, he gave me the opportunity," Jordan said. He came in with no ego and he kept it 100. He said, "I’m going to give it to you straight. I want you to be here. I want you to be a better player. I want you to be Defensive Player of the Year for multiple years. I want to help you do that." In a wide-ranging Q&A, Jordan also revealed he has no interest in settling for a short-term deal as an unrestricted free agent during the offseason.
