Clippers' Marcin Gortat: Serviceable in return to first unit
Gortat posted seven points (2-3 FG, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 21 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday. He's averaging 8.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 20.3 minutes over his first three games back on the first unit.
The veteran had fallen out of the rotation altogether earlier in the month for a three-game spell as well, but he's looked refreshed since returning. Coach Doc Rivers could opt to continue giving both Gortat and fellow big man Boban Marjanovic periodic multi-game layoffs in order to keep them fresh, a strategy that appears to be working well overall for both players thus far. Naturally, that approach would wreak some havoc from a fantasy perspective, so it's a situation for both Gortat and Marjanovic owners to monitor night to night.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Patrick Beverley: Strong complementary effort in win
Beverley pitched in 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 25 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday.
The full line represented one of Beverley's best all-around efforts of the season, and it included his third double-digit scoring tally in the last five games. The seven rebounds were also a monthly high for Beverley, as he continues to offer serviceable production across the stat sheet on some nights. His scoring does go through a fair share of ups and downs, however, so his overall fantasy value certainly falls in the latter half of starting point guards around the league.... See More ...

Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Solid line off bench in win
Harrell provided 14 points (4-8 FG, 6-9 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 27 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday.
It was a typically fruitful second-unit effort for Harrell, one that he's made his trademark in the early going of the season. The 24-year-old big has rattled off six straight double-digit scoring efforts, and coach Doc Rivers continues to afford him a bump in playing time as compared to his first seven games of the season. Harrell averaged 20.4 minutes during that stretch, but he's now up to 26.7 minutes per contest thus far in November. With close to a starter's allotment of playing time, Harrell's fantasy stock has risen even further, and he's sporting averages of 16.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.0 steal across seven contests during the current month....

Clippers' Tobias Harris: Near double-double in win
Harris finished with 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists and one block across 39 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday.
Harris turned in one of his trademark lines, as he had a positive impact on both the scoreboard and the boards. The 26-year-old bounced back from a 38.9 percent shooting night against the Warriors on Monday to hit the 50.0 percent mark from the floor for the third time in the last five games. He also continues to be highly effective as a floor spacer, draining multiple threes in three consecutive games and on 11 occasions overall. It's a season of career bests for Harris thus far, as he's established new high-water marks in points (20.2), rebounds (8.8) and shooting percentage (50.2) through his first 14 contests....

Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Leads first unit in scoring
Gallinari totaled 19 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday.
Gallinari bounced back nicely from a pair of sub-30 percent shooting efforts against the Bucks and Warriors, respectively. The 30-year-old also drained four clutch free throws late to help ensure the victory and tallied multiple threes for the fourth time in the last five games. Gallinari had managed to find his way to double-digit scoring totals even when his shot has been off, so his production this season has been locked in regardless of circumstance. Factoring in Thursday's contest, he's averaging a solid 19.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 30.7 minutes over his first 14 games.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Lou Williams: Team-high scoring total off bench
Williams delivered 23 points (9-20 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday.
Williams paced the Clippers in scoring on the night and delivered a particularly clutch three-pointer with 41.4 seconds remaining that snapped a 107-107 deadlock. The veteran then followed up that 29-footer with a pair of free throws with 7.7 seconds remaining that helped seal the win. Williams has now eclipsed the 20-point mark in six of seven November games, and those numbers could see even more of an uptick if he's able to improve his current 40.3 percent success rate for the month....

Clippers' Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Razor-sharp in OT win
Gilgeous-Alexander poured in 18 points (8-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 38 minutes in the Clippers' 121-116 overtime win over the Warriors on Monday.
Just a few days removed from being named a starter for the foreseeable future, Gilgeous-Alexander put together his third straight double-digit scoring effort Monday. The 11th overall pick is offering solid production across the stat sheet and has already demonstrated an ability to heat up in a hurry on the scoring front. Monday's 72.7 percent success rate marked a career high for Gilgeous-Alexander, and it came just two games after a 58.3 percent tally against the Trail Blazers last Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Ragged shooting night in OT win
Gallinari supplied 14 points (3-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 37 minutes in the Clippers' 121-116 overtime win over the Warriors on Monday.
Gallinari endured a second consecutive sub-30 percent shooting night, but he still found his way to a solid scoring total with near-perfect free-throw shooting and a pair of successful three-point attempts. The 30-year-old also continued his solid work on the boards Monday, and he's now hauled in seven or eight rebounds in half of his six November contests. Despite his current struggles, Gallinari continues to average career bests in scoring (19.0) and rebounds (5.9), while also generating his highest three-point shooting percentage (43.5) since his rookie 2008-09 campaign....

Clippers' Tobias Harris: Struggles with shot in OT win
Harris provided 17 points (7-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals across 42 minutes in the Clippers' 121-116 overtime win over the Warriors on Monday.
Harris couldn't quite get his shot to fall as consistently as usual, yet he still finished with a very solid all-around stat line. The veteran big man has uncharacteristically shot under 40.0 percent in two of his last three games, but his strong work on the boards makes up for any offensive shortfall. Harris remains a virtual lock for shot attempts in the mid-teens at a minimum, multiple threes and rebound totals approximating double digits each night, making him one of the most reliable and well-rounded frontcourt fantasy assets in any format....

Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Explodes for 23 off bench in OT win
Harrell delivered 23 points (10-13 FG, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, four blocks and one steal across 32 minutes in the Clippers' 121-116 overtime win over the Warriors on Monday.
It was another signature Harrell performance, one that saw him post excellent production on a per-minute basis. Harrell's scoring total was second on the night to only that of fellow second-unit denizen Lou Williams, and he's now eclipsed the 20-point mark in consecutive games for the first time this season. The 24-year-old continues to offer strong point and rebounding totals in nearly every outing, leading to scoring averages of 14.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 blocks across 23.3 minutes....
