Doncic Scores 19 in Win vs. Sixers
Luka Doncic scores 19 points (6-of-15 FG, 3-of-5 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, and four 3-pointers in Monday’s 118-102 win over the Sixers. Doncic firmly holds a spot in the top five across 9-cat leagues, with averages soaring to 34.8 points and 9.6 assists per game, surpassing last season’s numbers.
Even nursing an ankle injury, Doncic’s resilience was displayed in Monday’s win over the 76ers, where he once again proved why he’s one of the top players in the league. Managers lucky enough to have him should feel confident in his continued impact, as he shows no signs of slowing down. Doncic isn’t just playing; he’s making a statement with every game, promising a thrilling run for those riding the wave of his extraordinary season.
Bridges Scores 23 in Win Over 76ers
Mikal Bridges played 32 minutes in Saturday’s win over the 76ers, scoring 23 points (7-of-16 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with three rebounds, four assists, and five 3-pointers. Bridges fell one 3-pointer shy of a third straight game with six made, missing out on a franchise record.
That said, he’s scored 20 points or more in three straight and six of his last seven games, one reason why Bridges has provided top-50 value over the past two weeks. While there have been reports of teams being interested in acquiring Bridges, the Nets have shut down any approach. The Nets play four games at home next week, beginning with the Warriors on Monday.
