Myles Turner recorded his second career double-double in Monday's 89-87 win against the Lakers, scoring 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds during 30 minutes.
Turner didn't shine as bright as Lakers young big man Julius Randle, but he still turned in a very solid outing to go along with the win. The Indiana Pacers front court is finally all healthy, though that hasn't hurt Turner's fantasy value much considering he's averaging 13.0 points and 8.2 rebounds over his past five games.
Kobe Bryant scored 19 points (6-25 FG, 4-14 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with five rebounds during 33 minutes in Monday's 89-87 loss to the Pacers.
Kobe tried to put the team on his back late in the game, and nearly pulled it off had it not been for Paul George's late free throws. Bryant continues to jack up way too many shots, having attempted 10 or more three-pointers in four straight games. It appears Bryant is coming back down to Earth after turning the clock back to start February.
Zach Randolph contributed 26 points (12-19 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, and four assists in 40 minutes during the Memphis Grizzlies ' 112-106 overtime loss to the Trail Blazers on Monday.
Over the last five contests, Randolph is averaging 17.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, two assists, and 0.6 steals in 33 minutes per appearance. Given that the Grizzlies lost Marc Gasol (foot) to injury in the first half, Randolph could be called upon to carry the scoring load again on Wednesday versus a Nets team lacking interior defense and rim protection.
Julius Randle scored 15 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while matching his career high of 19 rebounds and adding three assists over 34 minutes in Monday's 89-87 loss to the Pacers.
That makes back-to-back monster performances for Randle as Kobe's fairwell tour didn't get in the way Monday. Bryant continues to take offensive touches away from Randle, which hasn't helped his scoring average. Luckily Randle has been a beast on the glass, averaging 13.4 rebounds over his last five games. The young power forward hasn't gone more than a game without a double-double in his past 12 contests.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored a season-high 20 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with seven rebounds and two blocks during 30 minutes in Monday's 108-91 win against the Bulls.
In just his sixth game of the season, MKG looked pretty good on offense albeit against a very depleted Chicago squad. He's getting plenty of minutes, so it'a only a matter of time before Kidd-Gilchrist starts to turn that into more fantasy production. With P.J. Hairston sitting out games, MKG isn't really splitting minutes with anyone at small forward, depending on which lineup head coach Steve Clifford decides to roll with.
