Portland Trail Blazers Fantasy Spin
Damian Lillard put up 30 points, three rebounds, five assists, six 3-pointers, two steals and five turnovers in a one-point loss to the Mavericks on Sunday. Lillard got off to a slow start in this one, going 2-of-9 from the field through the first half of action, but as per usual, he was able to turn things around after halftime. He scored 16 straight to close out the third quarter while hit back-to-back-to-back triples in a one-minute span, so in other words, this was your standard Thrillard performance. C.J. McCollum finished with 14 points, five rebounds, five assists and two turnovers in 34 minutes.
Oklahoma City Thunder Fantasy Spin
Paul George caught fire against the Rockets during a 117-112 win in Houston on Saturday, making 12-of-22 from the field for 45 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two turnovers and six 3-pointers. He was 15-of-18 from the line to get him to a tidy 75.2 TS%. He used a little bit of James Harden's medicine against him with all of his shots either being at the rim, from deep or at the line. He is not slowing down and he has gotten even better over his last seven, averaging 37.7 points, 7.7 boards, 3.7 dimes, 2.4 steals and 6.1 treys on a 32.0 usage rate with a 68.9 TS%. He has been the No. 2 player per game in that span and sits at No. 2 on the season. What a steal for his fantasy owners.
