Portland Trail Blazers Fantasy Spin

Damian Lillard made 8-of-20 shots for 24 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. Lillard wasn't particularly efficient, but he still dropped 20+ for the fifth straight game. He's been battling a few different ailments over the last week or so, but continues to play through anything and everything. Part of the reason why Dame is so valuable is because of his durability. He'll have two days to rest up before Monday's game against the Jazz.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Donovan Mitchell kept it rolling on Friday, scoring 24 points (9-of-15 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Cavaliers. Mitchell scored 20 or more points for the eighth straight game, which is his longest such streak of the season. He’s been excelling with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) out of the lineup. Over the previous five games prior to this one, all with Rubio unavailable, he’s averaging 31.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.0 triples on a sterling 50% shooting. This stretch has seen Mitchell post top-20 value in 9-category leagues. The next step will be for him to continue with this level of production when Rubio returns.
