Atlanta Hawks Fantasy Spin
Trae Young handed out 12 assists and grabbed seven rebounds on Wednesday, but scored only five points on 1-of-12 shooting in 33 minutes. Atlanta came in averaging a league-high 18.8 turnovers per game, and Trae actually lowered his season average with three miscues vs. Chicago tonight. He went 0-of-5 inside the arc but has generally been better in that department, knowing when to attack the paint and when to use his shooting range to draw out defenders. Most nights his scoring, assists, triples and FT% are super reliable, so if you're not in a roto league you're going home happy.
Portland Trail Blazers Fantasy Spin
Damian Lillard scored a team-high 24 points during a 120-106 win over the Suns on Thursday, adding three rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. Dame's steals are on the rise this year, improving his per game average in every month this season. January has also been his best month for dimes with 7.3 per game, adding averages of 24.6 points, 3.8 boards, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.0 treys. He's a first-round player going forward.
