Barnes provided 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 36 minutes in Saturday's 123 -111 win over the Trail Blazers. Barnes added another excellent stat line to his resume after an equally impressive total against the Sixers on Thursday. When he's dialed in, Barnes is one of four pure shooters on the team who can get things going from beyond the arc. With the help of Barnes' five threes, the Kings tied a team record for three-pointers. While the veteran carries more variance than most of his teammates, the perfect storm of production Saturday is an encouraging sign as the Kings make a push for a playoff spot, and Barnes will figure to be a key part of that effort.
Barnes notched 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 112-94 win at Golden State. Barnes has now scored in double digits in three straight contests, and he has done that five times in his last six games. The small forward clearly has embraced a bigger role on offense during that six-game stretch, a period where he is averaging 20.0 points per contest while shooting an impressive 59.7 percent from the field and 54.3 percent from deep. As good as his numbers look of late, however, he's bound for a regression sooner rather than later.
Barnes scored 32 points (11-17 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes during Thursday's 129-125 win over Memphis. Barnes has now reached at least 23 points in three of his past four games. He was the game-leader in this one as no one else topped 26. The North Carolina product will look to keep streaking Saturday against the Clippers.
Barnes finished with 23 points (8-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 36 minutes during Monday's loss to the Bucks. Barnes is solidly in the midst of his best stretch since the beginning of January as he's totaled 48 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists on 17-of-26 shooting over his past two contests. That said, he's unlikely to keep up this current level of production for much longer as, since the new year, Barnes has failed to top double digits in seven of 18 games. That said, he's still worth a roster spot in most formats as his averages of 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 threes still represent decent nightly contributions.
Barnes finished with just two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 129-113 loss to the Lakers. Barnes matched his season-low with two points Saturday, continuing to demonstrate his unfriendly fantasy game. He continues to play big minutes for the Kings despite being outside the top-300 in nine-category leagues. There is very little upside when analyzing Barnes and outside of an occasional scoring outburst, he has no place on a 12-team roster.
