Ryan Anderson scored a season-high 31 points on 10-of-18 shooting (including eight threes) with seven rebounds and two blocks in Friday’s loss to the Grizzlies.
Anderson might see a bump if the Rockets decide the only way they can win without Clint Capela is to shoot an even more ridiculous amount of threes. Otherwise, he’s a late-round guy when you iron out all the wrinkles. Eric Gordon uncorked an absurd 16 attempts from deep (hitting four) to finish with 17 points, four assists, one steal and one block on 6-of-19 shooting overall, and James Harden scored 16 points with two treys, seven rebounds, one steal, a career-high tying 17 assists and nine turnovers in the loss.
