March 22, 2019, 1:06 amStephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors
Stephen Curry scored 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting while adding four rebounds, seven assists, a steal and five 3-pointers against the Pacers on Thursday.
Cury went 5-for-15 from the floor and scored all of his points from deep. He was gunning it a bit tonight and had a signature turnaround 3-pointer, but he's actually been in a bit of a shooting slump lately. Over his past seven games, he's averaging 24.0 points, 5.0 3s, 5.6 boards, 5.7 assists and 1.9 steals on .400 shooting. Everything looks clean here except the efficiency, which is sure to shoot up soon.
March 22, 2019, 1:04 amKlay Thompson - G - Golden State Warriors
Klay Thompson scored 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting while adding eight rebounds, four assists and a triple-one against the Pacers on Thursday.
Thompson was cold from deep tonight, hitting only 1-of-6 from beyond the arc, but the uptick in assists is nice. The Warriors move the ball a lot when DeMarcus Cousins plays and it's lead to a healthy amount of assists being spread for each starter.
March 22, 2019, 1:03 amKevin Durant - F - Golden State Warriors
Kevin Durant scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting while chipping in three boards, six dimes, a triple, a steal and three blocks against the Pacers on Thursday.
Durant hasn't had an eye-popping line in a while, but he's been consistently delivering mid-round lines in the games he plays. The Warriors haven't rested any of their starters in their five-game week, but it would be unusual for coach Kerr not to. If Durant sits one game, he should be able to produce big numbers in the game he doesn't.
March 22, 2019, 1:00 amDraymond Green - F - Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting while adding seven rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Green's lack of defensive numbers is a bit odd, but he got it done everywhere else in 29 minutes of action. The Warriors made quick work of the Pacers so there was no need for Green to play much.
March 22, 2019, 12:59 amDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis scored five points on 2-of-9 shooting while corralling 12 boards and handing out three assists on Thursday.
Sabonis did his usual work on the glass and turned up with zero defensive stats and 2-for-9 shooting from the floor. We'd be a little harder on him, but no one on the Pacers really did much today so tonight's line was relatively solid.
March 22, 2019, 12:58 amTyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers
Tyreke Evans scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go with five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Thursday's game against the Warriors.
Evans played 29 minutes tonight which is partly due to Darren Collison (right quad contusion) sitting and the fact that the Pacers' starting unit was dry on offense. He's till too volatile to trust in standard leagues.
March 22, 2019, 12:56 amCory Joseph - G - Indiana Pacers
Cory Joseph scored two points on 1-of-7 shooting while adding two rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block.
Joseph didn't get anything going on offense, but none of the Pacers' starters outside of Thaddeus Young could. The key stats to look at here are the steals and dimes. If Collison misses more time, Joseph is a low-end streamer for dimes and swipes.
March 22, 2019, 12:55 amMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner scored four points on 2-of-10 shooting while adding six rebounds on Thursday.
Turner didn't block a shot and went 2-for-10 from the field and scoreless from deep. It wasn't an ideal matchup as he had to face either Draymond Green or DeMarcus Cousins all night so we'll give him a pass and the fact that he blocked five shots yesterday makes up for tonight.
March 22, 2019, 12:54 amThaddeus Young - F - Indiana Pacers
Thaddeus Young scored 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting while adding seven rebounds, an assist, two steals, a block and two triples on Thursday.
His line tonight was much better than his two-point outing against the Clippers and we're extra grateful for him delivering in what was a disaster of a night for the Pacers. He was the only starter to score in double-figures with ugly lines across the board.
March 22, 2019, 12:52 amDevin Booker - G - Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker led the Suns in scoring in their 98-118 loss to the Pistons on Thursday with 26 points on 8-of-17 shooting while adding five rebounds, two assists, three steals and two triples.
Booker had a much better night from deep, going 2-for-5, and hit 8-of-10 at the line which is an improvement from last game's marks. The good news is that his usage is going to increase with Josh Jackson dealing with an ankle injury, but whether or not he can sustain his efficiency with increased volume is yet to be seen.
March 22, 2019, 12:49 amDeandre Ayton - C - Phoenix Suns
Deandre Ayton scored 20 points on 9-of-12 shooting while adding eight rebounds, an assist and a block on Thursday.
Ayton has been bringing it on the defensive end of the floor lately and held his own against one of the toughest matchups in the league. It's encouraging to see his progress and we'll expect him to take some more shots now that Josh Jackson is dealing with an ankle injury.
March 22, 2019, 12:48 amJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
Josh Jackson scored three points on 1-of-7 shooting while adding two rebounds and two assists before leaving Thursday's game with an ankle injury.
Jackson fell down after a block attempt and laneded awkwardly his ankle. He needed help off the court and the Suns will most likely exercise patience with his recovery. Mikal Bridges is going to get all the minutes he can handle on the wing while De'Anthony Melton and Troy Daniels could see an uptick in playing time.
March 22, 2019, 12:47 amRichaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns
Richaun Holmes returned to action and scored 10 points on 2-of-4 shooting while adding five rebounds, an assist, two steals and two blocks on Thursday.
Holmes missed the last two games with a quad strain, but immediately made an impact in his first game back. He makes impact plays on defense consistently and is worth a stream if you need blocks.
March 22, 2019, 12:45 amMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting with three rebounds, seven assists, a steal and two triples on Thursday.
Bridges logged 39 minutes and this is going to be a regular occurrence now that Josh Jackson (ankle) looks like he'll miss time. He was already on the radar as an elite steals streamer, but now we might see an uptick in his triples and offense as well.
March 22, 2019, 12:43 amBlake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons
Blake Griffin scored 17 points on 4-of-17 shooting while adding seven rebounds, eight assists, a steal, a block and two triples on Thursday.
Griffin and Andre Drummond both couldn't get their shots to fall tonight. They were able to create enough space for their teammates to knock down easy buckets though and when their wings are hitting their outside shots it makes the game much easier for the Pistons' two star players.
