Damian Lillard had 31 points, five boards, seven assists, four steals and two triples, while C.J. McCollum had 21 points, two boards, two assists and one triple in a 90-93 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
The stellar backcourt put the squad on their backs once more on Tuesday, and Lillard had a chance to tie the game with a toughly contested shot before the buzzer rang. The duo combined for 22-for-43 from the field and scored over half the team’s points, which isn’t an uncommon occurrence in Portland. Despite not getting the victory tonight, both players are posting top-25 value in 9-cat on the season.
July 6, 2020, 9:40 pmJarrett AllenC, Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen averaged 10.6 points, 9.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.3 blocks in 64 games for 114/95 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Allen showed a lot of promise in his rookie year only to have the wet blanket of the DeAndre Jordan signing to ruin things in fantasy land. With Jordan opting to sit out the resumption of the season, we'll see a lot more Allen at center which is a good thing for everyone.
July 6, 2020, 9:39 pmRodions KurucsPF, Brooklyn Nets
Nets forward Rodions Kurucs saw averages of 4.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.6 threes and 0.4 steals per game on .448 shooting from the field to finish just inside the top-400 in 8/9-cat per-game value.
Kurucs' season was, for the most part, largely unmemorable, highlighted by a 19-point career-high game. He provided the Nets with depth at the forward position but in just 12.8 minutes pr game, Kurucs was unable to properly make an impact in the box scores. With Kevin Durant expected to be ready to play in 2020-21, don't expect on Kurucs to be able to build too much on what he's managed to put up in his humble pro resume.
July 6, 2020, 9:38 pmDeAndre JordanC, Brooklyn Nets
DeAndre Jordan averaged 8.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.9 blocks on .666 shooting for 130/124 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Jordan signing with the Nets was an immediate nail in the coffin for Jarret Allen to have any chance at increasing his workload and it resulted in two mediocre fantasy seasons. The double-digit rebounds are nice, but outside of that, Jordan provided little else as the field goal percentage wasn't as good as it seemed because he only averaged 8.3 points a night. He'll sit out the resumption which is going to be a theme for older players in non-contending teams.
July 6, 2020, 9:36 pmCaris LeVertPG-SG, Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert finished the year averaging 17.7 points, 1.8 3s, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.2 blocks for 132/182 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
LeVert had injury troubles as well this year (a common theme for the Nets) but he was able to cap off his season with a strong run as one of their primary playmakers. The counting stats are there, but the efficiency wasn't, but that's usually the case with players returning from injury. It's hard to see him keeping up the development as long as Kyrie Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie handle the ball, but with the resumption throwing things off the rails, we might see some big LeVert games this summer.
July 6, 2020, 9:33 pmWilson ChandlerF, Brooklyn Nets
Wilson Chandler finished the season averaging 5.9 points, 1.1 3s, 4.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks on .404 shooting over 35 games for 282/287 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Chandler struggled all year to stay healthy and has opted out of the season resumption. He didn't have any value this season and the extra time off should do a lot of good for him as he's shown the ability to produce when the circumstances are right.
July 6, 2020, 9:31 pmChris ChiozzaPG, Brooklyn Nets
Chris Chiozza averaged 4.0 points, 0.9 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals in 21 games for 306/307 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Chiozza was looked over during the draft due to his size, but he has all the intangibles needed to run the point. He's accurate from deep (.435 career 3-point shooter) and has the court vision and passing ability to keep the boat afloat while he's in. If Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyrie Irving don't return to action, Chiozza should see a nice uptick in his assist numbers, but the signing of Tyler Johnson makes that future a bit murky.
July 6, 2020, 9:26 pmTimothe Luwawu-CabarrotSG, Brooklyn Nets
Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot averaged 6.3 points, 1.0 3s, 2.3 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.2 blocks on .406 shooting over the course of 39 games for 337/331 per-game rankings in 8/9-cat leagues.
TLC is always on the radar for 3-point streaming when someone is hurt, but he really struggled to get any consistency this year. After four years in the league, it's really hard to envision TLC becoming a starting caliber player without some drastic improvements somewhere as his 3-point shot was just an average .358 this season.
July 6, 2020, 9:23 pmDzanan MusaSG, Brooklyn Nets
Buried in the Nets depth chart, Dzanan Musa posted 4.2 PPG, 2.0 RPG and 0.4 3PG over 35 games played for 417/435 value in 8/9-cat per-game value in 2019-20.
Musa saw his 2019-20 become a yo-yo session between the Brooklyn Nets and their G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. At just 11.5 minutes per game, Musa was unable to make any significant strides in what could have been a breakthrough season. With Caris LeVert eventually finding a path to healthy minutes and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot pushing Musa for minutes, Musa failed to warrant any consideration even in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
July 6, 2020, 9:23 pmTyler JohnsonPG-SG, Brooklyn Nets
Tyler Johnson played 31 games for the Suns, averaging 5.7 points, 0.8 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.4 assists which was good for 369 in value in 9-cat leagues.
Johnson couldn't stay healthy and when he was on the floor, he was bad. The shot disappeared as he shot .380 from the field and the contract he signed was an absolute steal for him. Spencer Dinwiddie's status to play during the resumption is up in the air due to him being positive for COVID which means Johnson might get more burn than we anticipated.
July 6, 2020, 9:15 pmJustin AndersonSF, Brooklyn Nets
Justin Anderson was signed in late June to the Nets roster and will remain on it until the end of the year.
Anderson was signed as an extra body since the Nets have a few players who are opting out of the season resumption. He only appeared in three games with the Nets before re-signing with them and placed outside the top-500 in fantasy leagues.
