Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers to a 119-99 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, finishing with 30 points (8-of-13 FGs, 11-of-11 FTs), nine rebounds, seven assists, one block and three triples in 35 minutes. The Clippers were embarrassed by this same team on Thursday so Kawhi took matters into his own hands tonight. He had the highlight of the night with this emphatic dunk (link below), and he's now scored at least 29 points in six of his last seven games. He's climbing the MVP ladder and has a tough test coming up against the Bucks on Sunday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 14-of-27 shots, two 3-pointers and 8-of-10 free throws for 38 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and a block in Thursday's entertaining 129-125 win over the Pelicans. This was Giannis' 14th game of the season with at least 30 points and he's now scored at least 35 points in three straight games, the first time he's ever done so. He was grimacing and holding his right lower back/hip area and put a heating pad on it when he was on the bench. We're not going to call it an injury, but it's just something fantasy managers might want to keep an eye on going forward. After losing five straight, the Bucks have won four in a row, mostly against inferior teams. They've a very streaky team this season, with winning streaks of three, four, two, five and four games, and losing streaks of two, two and five games.
