Clippers' Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Continues late season resurgence
Gilgeous-Alexander tallied 17 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 115-109 victory over Indiana.
Gilgeous-Alexander has now scored in double-digits in nine of his last ten games, continuing his push back into standard league relevance. After a solid enough start to his rookie season, Gilgeous-Alexander appeared to have hit the rookie wall, however, it would seem as though it was merely a form slump. His playing time has certainly been more consistent of late which has allowed him to find some rhythm on both ends of the floor. At this stage, he should be on a roster in most formats as a source of points, assists, and steals as well as out-of-position rebounds.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Another double-double Tuesday
Harrell totaled 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 115-109 victory over the Pacers.
Harrell put up at least 20 points for the fifth consecutive game, adding a dozen boards in what was his third double-double across that same period. The impressive numbers continue to flow for Harrell who has been a major factor in the Clippers' surge to the playoffs. They are a very real chance of finishing as high as fourth if they can continue to win games. Their next three games are against teams that are out of the playoff race and results that should, in theory, go their way.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Another 20 point effort Tuesday
Gallinari finished with 24 points (8-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 115-109 victory over the Pacers.
Gallinari scored at least 20 points for the seventh straight game Tuesday, helping the Clippers to their eighth win from the last nine games. Gallinari is on track to play in excess of 70 games for the Clippers, a number that many thought impossible to begin the season. He has delivered a huge return on investment for owners who took a chance on him in their drafts, and the roster changes leading up to the All-Star break certainly helped with his overall value. This victory moves the Clippers to within half a game of the fifth-seeded Spurs meaning Gallinari should get plenty of run down the stretch as a number of teams try to avoid the Warriors in the first round of the playoffs....

Clippers' Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Double-doubles in close win
Gilgeous-Alexander compiled 14 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 assists and two rebounds across 36 minutes in the Clippers' 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.
The rookie seems to finally be hitting his stride at the most critical time of year, as Gilgeous-Alexander is just a single point short of nine consecutive double-digit scoring efforts after Sunday's performance. That easily represents his best offensive stretch of the season, as the 20-year-old has struggled with consistency at times. Gilgeous-Alexander's stellar shooting has been key to his success, as he's generated a 52.5 percent success rate from the floor during March, including an eye-popping 68.4 percent from three-point range. Coupled with his solid work in assists (4.3), rebounds (3.4) and steals (1.1) this month, the 2018 first-round pick's stock has arguably never been higher.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Landry Shamet: Stays hot in close win
Shamet generated 14 points (4-9 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal across 27 minutes in the Clippers' 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.
Shamet did all his non-free-throw damage from downtown, getting his scoring back in double digits after a one-game detour versus the Bulls on Friday night. The 22-year-old has drained multiple threes in all eight March contests and is shooting a blistering 50.8 percent from behind the arc over that span. While his contributions elsewhere remain very modest, Shamet appears locked into a starting role for what remains of the regular season. The rookie is now averaging 12.0 points over 15 games with the Clippers on the strength of a 46.9 percent success rate from distance.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Signature effort off bench
Harrell produced 20 points (8-17 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 34 minutes in the Clippers' 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.
The line was quintessential Harrell, with a 20-point effort, a double-double and multiple rejections as central components. The big man with the non-stop motor is showing no signs of fatigue as the season winds down, but rather, seems to only be ramping up. Factoring in Sunday's production, Harrell has three double-doubles in March and four consecutive 20-point tallies, with the latter serving as his longest such stretch this season.... See More ...

Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Double-doubles in buzzer-beating win
Gallinari delivered 20 points (7-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 31 minutes in the Clippers' 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.
Gallinari stepped up in the close win with a team-high rebounding total and the top score on the starting five as well. The veteran wing scuffled some with his shot Sunday, but he's been enjoying the most efficient month of his season thus far. Factoring in his production against the Nets, Gallinari has scored at least 20 points in six straight games, his longest such stretch of the season. Moreover, the 30-year-old is shooting 55.8 percent across seven March contests, including a blistering 51.4 percent from three-point range, with both figures comfortably qualifying as his best in any month of the campaign....

Clippers' Lou Williams: Drains game-winning trey
Williams posted 25 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes in the Clippers' 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.
The final three points of Williams' team-high scoring tally were the most important, as he drained a 28-footer from the top of the key as time expired for the win. It was the fifth performance of more than 20 points in the last six games for Williams, who's enjoying one of his more efficient shooting months in March with a 46.4 percent success rate from the floor. The 14-year veteran is as steady as ever as the fantasy postseason approaches, as he's now averaging 20.4 points, posting a career high in assists (5.2) and equaling a career best in rebounds (3.0)....

Clippers' Luc Mbah a Moute: Out again Sunday
Mbah a Moute (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Nets.
It remains unclear exactly when Mbah a Moute will be able to make his return to the lineup, but his next opportunity will come Tuesday against the Pacers.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' JaMychal Green: Back on bench
Green was scoreless (0-1 FG) in 14 minutes and chipped in one rebound and one assist Friday in the Clippers' 128-121 win over the Bulls.
With Danilo Gallinari (ankle) back from a one-game absence, Green returned to his normal bench role and saw his minutes fall precipitously. Since coming over in a Feb. 7 trade with Memphis, Green is averaging 7.4 points, 6.9 boards and 1.1 triples in 19.6 minutes per game, production that only makes him an interesting commodity in deeper fantasy leagues....

Clippers' Patrick Beverley: Teases triple-double in victory
Beverley produced 13 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 128-121 victory over the Bulls.
Beverley was within sight of a triple-double Friday, helping the Clippers to their sixth win from their last seven games. After a slow start to the season, Beverley has emerged as a difference maker in many leagues, thanks to his ability to put up numbers across the board. He is not going to score like this every night but typically sees enough playing time to have standard league value.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Big night in Friday's victory
Harrell tallied 26 points (9-18 FG, 8-8 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 128-121 victory over Chicago.
Harrell filled the box score Friday, scoring at least 20 points for the third straight game. He also hit all eight of his free-throw attempts in what was a nice bonus for his owners. Harrell has been magnificent this season and with basically no chance of being rested, should be a solid top-50 player for the rest of year.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Another strong performance in win
Gilgeous-Alexander totaled 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals, and one block in 30 minutes during Friday's 128-121 victory over the Bulls.
Gilgeous-Alexander put forth another strong performance Friday, scoring at least 12 points for the seventh time in his last eight games. While his scoring has been commendable of late, his supporting numbers are where a lot of his value comes from. His value is somewhat capped with both Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley playing so well, however, the rookie is worth considering in 12-team formats as long as he is playing with confidence....

Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Scores team-high 27 points Friday
Gallinari finished with 27 points (10-14 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 34 minutes during Friday's 128-121 victory over the Bulls.
Gallinari started and played 34 minutes Friday after earlier being listed as questionable. He was excellent from the field, hitting 10 of his 14 shot attempts, including a perfect 4-of-4 from beyond the arc. The minor ankle concern did not appear to be a factor and barring any setbacks, he should be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Nets.... See More ... See Less
