Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin
Montrezl Harrell scored 24 points in 28 minutes vs. the Knicks, making 8-of-12 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs with four rebounds, one assist and one block. The Clippers have won four straight and nine of their past 10 games. Today's road win moved them half a game ahead of OKC for the No. 5 seed, and there's enough at stake that Doc Rivers is unlikely to give his key guys many days off. That's particularly hopeful if you own Clippers veterans like Harrell, Lou Williams, Pat Beverley and Danilo Gallinari.
Minnesota Timberwolves Fantasy Spin
Karl-Anthony Towns led the Timberwolves past Memphis with a stat line of 33 points (12-of-20 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 23 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one blocked shot and four 3-pointers. Saturday’s effort was Towns’ sixth this season in which he’s accounted for at least 20 points and 20 rebounds in the same game. He’s failed to reach double figures in rebounds just once since the All-Star break, and he’s posted two 20/20 lines in his last three outings. A top-5 player in nine-category leagues for the entire season, Towns has been a top-3 player over the last month. Minnesota has three games on the schedule next week, including a Friday/Saturday back-to-back against the Warriors and 76ers.
