Ty Lawson scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench in Tuesday’s win over the Blazers.
Lawson is a perfect fit for a defenseless Blazers team that plays up and down the court and in space. Rudy Gay is going to play on Wednesday and the Kings get the stiff defense of the Jazz, so owners should take a wait-and-see approach in standard formats. Arron Afflalo joined the rotation with 11 points, and Matt Barnes continued to struggle on a two-point, four-rebound, four-assist night. Kosta Koufos scored two points with no other stats.
