Valanciunas scored 17 points (5-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding 16 rebounds, three assists and a block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 96-91 win over the Pistons.
The game became something of a throwback as both Valanciunas and Andre Drummond posted big lines as they went at each other in the paint, but the Toronto center ended up getting more support from his teammates. Valanciunas now has 11 double-doubles on the season, including four in his last seven games while averaging 14.4 points and 11.0 boards over that stretch, but his minutes and game-to-game production remain highly dependent on the matchup.
Miles scored a team-high 21 points (7-16 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 26 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 96-91 win over the Pistons.
For once, it wasn't DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry leading the charge for the Raptors, as Miles helped the team pull away with eight points, plus all four of his boards and his block, in the fourth quarter. The veteran gunner has now drained multiple three-pointers in five straight games, shooting 40 percent (16-for-40) from beyond the arc over that stretch, but his usually minimal contributions in other categories make him a tough player to roster in most fantasy formats.
Drummond scored 25 points (12-15 FG, 1-3 FT) while adding 17 rebounds, four steals and two assists in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 96-91 loss to the Raptors.
He and Jonas Valanciunas had a spirited battle in the paint all night, but Drummond didn't get as much help from his teammates as the Toronto center did. The 24-year-old now has 29 double-doubles in 41 games on the season, putting him fourth in the league in that category behind Karl-Anthony Towns (38), DeMarcus Cousins (33) and Russell Westbrook (32).
Carroll scored 11 points (3-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and an assist in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 100-95 loss to the Spurs.
It's his sixth double-double of the season and third in his last seven games, and Carroll is now averaging 13.1 points, 7.6 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.1 steals over that stretch. The veteran wing doesn't have tremendous upside, but his ability to contribute in multiple categories gives him plenty of utility in deeper fantasy formats.
Crabbe scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding eight rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 100-95 loss to the Spurs.
It's the third time in the last six games that Crabbe has struck for 20 points, and he's averaging a solid 14.8 points, 4.8 boards, 3.2 three-pointers and 2.7 assists over that stretch while shooting 44.2 percent (19-for-43) from beyond the arc. The Nets don't have much in the way of reliable scoring options, so expect the 25-year-old to continue seeing a lot of the ball as long as he stays hot from the outside.
