Barnes registered 25 points (9-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one block across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 115-11 victory over the Hornets.
Barnes led his team to victory Wednesday night, posting a team-high in points and rebounds. Aside from his double-double, his efficiency is also noteworthy as it was his best shooting performance (69 percent) on the season, so all signs point up for Barnes in upcoming games, especially if he moves to power forward, where he played Wednesday night.
Nearly halfway through his second season in Dallas, Barnes has provided a steady source of scoring. He has attempted 46-percent of his shots from the midrange so far in the 2017-18 season, down from 60-percent last season. The slight change hasn't led to improved scoring numbers or efficiency, but Barnes is becoming a well-rounded offensive player who does a lot more than just score. He is averaging career-highs for both rebounds (6.6) and assists (2.1) per game. As long as he continues to play an integral role in the Dallas offense, he will be a worthy fantasy asset.
Barnes had 22 points (10-21 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 loss to the Hawks.
Barnes finished with a team-high 22 points, but once again failed to really contribute anywhere else. He is going to be able to continue to put up some nice scoring numbers as the Dallas team is lacking in that department. Aside from this, however, he does have a few downsides to his game. He doesn't shoot a lot of three-pointers for the main scoring option, yet his efficiency remains average at best. He also provides next to no defensive stats, severely limiting his upside.
Barnes scored 26 points (11-21 FG, 3-6 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 35 minutes in Monday's 98-91 loss to Phoenix.
With a game-high 26 points, Barnes continued what has been a solid month. The forward is averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds over his last nine games. Averaging 18.3 points and a career-high 7.1 rebounds, Barnes is having a solid statistical year in Dallas. He has been a consistent scorer through 31 games by scoring in the double-digits in all but two games this season. However, as of late, Monday's 26 point game was his first 20-plus point game since December 4 and his third since November 22.
Barnes recorded 16 points (6-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes during Thursday's 112-97 loss to the Warriors.
One could consider this an off night for the usually-consistent forward, who usually offsets any poor shooting with decent supporting statistics to boost his fantasy totals. Unfortunately for Barnes owners, that didn't occur on Thursday. Despite this poor matchup, he remains Dallas' most consistent contributor and stability is a valuable asset in many formats.
