76ers' Dario Saric: Scores 13 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saric scored 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-4 FT) to go with eight rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Thursday's 116-115 win against Chicago.

For Saric, Thursday was a quiet night offensively with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting. However, the forward did collect eight rebounds, making it the third time in his last four games in which he tallied at least eight boards. In the collective shadow of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Saric can easily be forgotten. However, he is averaging 18.3 points and 6.8 rebounds in his last six games. While he is not the headliner that Embiid and Simmons are, Saric is a solid, complementary part in Philadelphia.

Clippers' Tobias Harris: Team-high scoring total in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris generated 22 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's 134-127 loss to the Warriors.

Harris' scoring total served as a team high for the Clippers on the night and represented his third 20-point effort since joining the team shortly before the trade deadline. The versatile forward also picked up where he left off before the All-Star break shooting-wise, following up a 50.0 percent effort against the Celtics on Feb. 14 with his best success rate from the field (63.6 percent) since Jan. 10. Harris has encouragingly maintained about the same level of usage he enjoyed with the Pistons in his new L.A. digs, keeping him a valued source of scoring, rebounds, and to a lesser extent, assists, across all formats.

76ers' J.J. Redick: Scores 14 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redick scored 14 points (4-13 FG, 3-8 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go with three rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Thursday's 116-115 win against Chicago.

While it was not his most efficient shooting night, Redick still managed to tally 14 points Thursday. The guard's 3-of-8 performance from three was a step up from where he left off before the break, shooting 2-of-12 against Miami on February 14. Still, Philadelphia will need consistent production from its three-point shooters as it makes a run at the playoffs. Shooting 40.3 percent on the season from beyond the arc, Redick will prove vital to Philadelphia's long range game down the stretch.

Much like Simmons, Embiid started off the unofficial second half of the season with a very efficient shooting performance en route to a 30 point night. The center shot 64.7 percent against Chicago included 3-of-3 from beyond the arc. As a whole, Embiid completely filled up the stat sheet with 13 rebounds to clinch another double-double. In addition, he piled up the defensive stats with a season-high tying three steals and four blocks as well. As Philadelphia makes a run at the playoffs, Embiid started off with a dominating performance.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons scored 32 points (13-18 FG, 6-11 FT) to go with seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes during Thursday's 116-115 win against Chicago.

After closing out the first half of the season with his sixth triple-double on February 14, Simmons exploded for a career-high 32 points against Chicago on Thursday to open the post-All Star Break run. The rookie guard was deadly efficient from the floor, shooting 72.2 percent. In addition, the 56.4 percent free throw shooter did sink two go-ahead foul shots in the waning seconds to clinch the Philadelphia victory. In the middle of a playoff run, Simmons started off with one of his most impressive offensive games of his career to date.
