Austin Rivers went off on Sunday night in a 129-112 win over the Kings with a career-high 41 points on 14-of-20 shooting.
Rivers knocked down six triples and shot 7-of-8 from the stripe. He also added six rebounds, four assists and two steals to the box score in his 33 minutes of action. With the absence of Russell Westbrook (quad), Rivers was called upon to step up his offensive game and he delivered in a big way. He can be used as a DFS play as long as Westbrook remains out, but he can return to the wire when he returns.
