Barnes was outstanding throughout but particularly effective when it counted most, scoring eight of Dallas' 12 points in overtime to seal the victory. The fifth-year pro has been superb from the field over the last nine games, shooting 50.0 percent or better in six of those contests. He continues to offer solid returns in the rebounds and assists categories as well, and is now averaging 19.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals over the first five games in February.
Barnes finished with 26 points (10-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), five rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes in a 114-113 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
Barnes had been in the midst of a minor dry spell heading into Tuesday with three consecutive outings of 15 points or fewer, but he stepped up his contributions against a subpar Trail Blazers defense to deliver a team-high scoring total. Though the 24-year-old's nightly stat lines are still lacking in diversity, it's hard to quibble too much with the underwhelming rebounding, three-pointers and assists totals since he's nearly doubled his scoring average from last season with the Warriors.
Barnes finished with 24 points (9-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal over 37 minutes in Monday's 104-97 win against the Cavaliers.
It was the first double-double for Barnes since Nov. 4, and just his second of the season. Barnes has been simply mediocre in the rebounds category, posting just two double-digit totals all season. His biggest contribution to fantasy owners is his scoring ability, and over the past four games he is averaging 24.3 points per game.
Barnes scored 31 points (13-26 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Thursday's 109-98 loss to the Thunder.
Barnes stepped up his scoring with both Dirk Nowitzki (rest) and Deron Williams (toe) out. Barnes matched his second highest scoring total this season. The absence of the other stars of the Mavericks rotation did not impact Barnes' workload, but as he already averages 35.8 minutes per game, there was not a lot of room for his minutes to increase in the first place. Offensively, Barnes has definitively moved on from a six-point dud against the Lakers Sunday, posting back-to-back games of at least 50 percent field goal shooting.
Barnes finished with 23 points (8-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT) with five rebounds, two steals and an assist over 37 minutes in Wednesday's 103-95 victory against the Knicks.
Barnes bounced back nicely after Sunday's egg-laying against the Lakers. He has posted five or more rebounds in four straight outings. Despite the fact Dirk Nowitzki has shown signs of a rebirth, Barnes remains a useful fantasy option in all formats. He won't have Nowitzki in the way Thursday in Oklahoma City, as the veteran will be rested. As a result, look for Barnes to roll up a solid stat line for his fantasy owners and DFS players.
