  • Player Notes
    Damian Lillard May 14 8:50am ET

    Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard went for a game-high 41 points on 16-for-23 shooting in Thursday's 118-117 loss to the Suns. Most of his misses came from behind the arc with a 2-for-6 effort. Lillard was 7-for-8 at the charity stripe and picked up five rebounds with five assists, one steal and three turnovers. Portland's superstar has scored 30-plus points in seven consecutive games ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale versus Denver. He's averaged 23.5 points on 41 percent shooting in two outings against the Nuggets this season, adding nine assists and 5.5 rebounds.

    Mikal Bridges May 14 8:50am ET

    Phoenix Suns small forward Mikal Bridges posted his second double-double of the year in Thursday's win over Portland, scoring 21 points and grabbing a game-high 11 rebounds. The 24-year-old shot 6-for-9 from the field and 6-for-6 at the line with a 3-for-5 effort from behind the arc. Bridges added two assists and one steal with two turnovers in 41 minutes. He stepped up big time on the glass, as Deandre Ayton (knee) missed his first game of the season. Dario Saric entered the starting five and finished with 12 points and five rebounds. The Suns play again on Saturday against San Antonio, which doesn't give Ayton a lot of time to recover, and Bridges will be expected to put in a lot of work on the glass again if Ayton isn't in the lineup.

    Chris Paul May 14 8:40am ET

    Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul was automatic from the field in Thursday's 118-117 win over Portland, shooting 11-for-14 en route to a team-high 26 points. He was 2-for-2 from outside and handed out seven assists with one turnover in 32 minutes. Devin Booker had a tough night with 5-for-17 shooting, so Paul played a big part in the victory, even though it was Booker who made a pair of clutch free throws to lock up the win. The Suns are fighting for the best record in the Western Conference, so expect them to go all out in the final regular-season games over the weekend. Both will be against the Spurs, meaning Paul gets to face a team that boasts the fourth-worst defensive record in the league against opposing point guards.

    Anthony Edwards May 14 8:30am ET

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Anthony Edwards led the team in scoring for the 16th time this season on Thursday, finishing a 114-103 loss to Denver with 29 points on 8-for-16 shooting. He nailed four triples with nine attempts and finished 9-for-12 with his free throws, adding seven rebounds and five assists to his line with two blocks and one turnover. Edwards was very quiet at the start of his rookie campaign, but the first pick of last year's draft has had a solid first season in the league overall with 19.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals.

    Karl-Anthony Towns May 14 8:30am ET

    Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns registered his first double-double in five games on Thursday, notching 20 points and 11 rebounds in a 114-103 loss to the Nuggets. He shot 6-for-18 from the field and 4-for-7 from outside with a 4-for-6 effort at the line. Towns' night included four assists with five turnovers in 39 minutes. KAT is finishing off his sixth year in the league, which will be the fifth season without any postseason action for him. He completes the regular season with a pair of favorable matchups against Boston and Dallas, who both have had plenty of defensive problems against opposing centers in 2020-21.

    Nikola Jokic May 14 8:20am ET

    Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic scored 16 first-quarter points in Thursday's win at Minnesota, finishing the night with a game-high 31 points on 14-for-21 shooting. He pulled down 14 rebounds and dished out four assists with one steal, one block and two turnovers. The Joker has now gone for 30-plus points in five of his seven outings this month. Friday's matchup against Detroit is a wonderful spot to do it again, but head coach Mike Malone might decide to rest his star man with not much left to play for anymore.

    Justin James May 14 8:20am ET

    Sacramento Kings guard/forward Justin James had a wonderful game in Thursday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring a career-high 31 points on 12-for-17 shooting. He missed just once with five attempts from outside and had a 3-for-4 record at the foul line with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 32 minutes off the bench. The Kings battled hard for a spot in the play-in tournament but fell just short. They have nothing to play for in the final two regular-season games, meaning James, who has been stuck on the bench all year, should get an opportunity to show what he can do.

    Jonas Valanciunas May 14 8:10am ET

    Memphis Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas picked up his 48th double-double of the campaign in Thursday's victory over Sacramento, scoring 24 points on 8-for-10 shooting and grabbing a game-high 13 rebounds. He was 8-for-8 at the foul line and finished things off with three assists, one block and two turnovers. Valanciunas has notched seven double-doubles in eight games, and he finds himself third on the league's double-doubles list behind Nikola Jokic (59) and Russell Westbrook (57). With Memphis facing Sacramento again on Friday and finishing the year against Golden State, Valanciunas has a great chance to get to 50 double-doubles for the season.

    Dillon Brooks May 14 8:10am ET

    Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Dillon Brooks led the team's offense in Thursday's win over Sacramento, finishing with 30 points on 13-for-28 shooting. He added six rebounds and three assists to his line with two blocks, one steal and one turnover, Brooks, who went 3-for-7 from downtown, finds himself on a scoring tear ahead of the final few games of the regular season. He has a chance to go off against the Kings and their league-worst defense again on Friday. Brooks is averaging 26 points on 48 percent shooting in the matchup this season.

    Stanley Johnson May 14 8:00am ET

    Toronto Raptors forward Stanley Johnson had the best game of his career in Thursday's loss to Chicago, leading all scorers with 35 points on 12-for-22 shooting. He was 6-for-13 with the three-ball and went 5-for-7 at the charity stripe with 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals. The Raptors have pulled the plug on their season, which gives bench guys like Johnson a chance to show what they can do in meaningful minutes. Expect him, and the likes of Malachi Flynn and Jalen Harris, to be busy in the final regular-season games as well.

    Zach LaVine May 14 8:00am ET

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine scored a team-high 24 points in Thursday's 114-102 win over the Raptors, shooting 8-for-15 from the field and 5-for-6 at the foul line with a 3-for-7 effort from outside. His line included five rebounds and two assists with three turnovers. LaVine should be licking his lips ahead of the next matchup against Brooklyn. He had a superb 41-point outing against the Nets earlier in the week when he shot 6-for-11 from downtown and 15-for-27 overall from the field.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo May 14 8:00am ET

    Bucks' F Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 69.25 fantasy points with 40 points scored, six assists and 15 rebounds in a 142-133 win over Indiana on Thursday night. Antetokounmpo has scored an average of 51.10 fantasy points in his last 5 games.

    Stanley Johnson May 14 8:00am ET

    Toronto's F Stanley Johnson scored 61.00 fantasy points with 35 points scored, five assists and 10 rebounds in a 102-114 loss to Chicago on Thursday night. Johnson has scored an average of 21.15 fantasy points in his last 5 games. Johnson is owned in very few, if any leagues.

    Coby White May 14 7:50am ET

    Chicago Bulls point guard Coby White notched his fifth double-double of the campaign in Thursday's victory over Toronto, scoring 17 points and handing out 10 assists. He also had one steal with two turnovers, while shooting 7-for-12 from the field and going 3-for-7 from downtown. White fell off the map a while back, but he's come back strongly to finish the regular season in good form. He gets to face the Nets next, against whom White started the week with a 16-3-4 line. Brooklyn has the seventh-worst defensive record in the league against opposing point guards in 2020-21.

    DeMar DeRozan May 14 7:50am ET

    San Antonio Spurs guard/forward DeMar DeRozan led his team with 27 points on 10-for-18 shooting in Thursday's 102-98 loss to the Knicks. He finished 7-for-9 at the foul line and had eight rebounds and four assists with one steal and three turnovers to complete his line. The Spurs clinched a spot in the play-in tournament on Thursday, so the final two regular-season matchups against the Suns will be dead-rubber games for them, which should give DeRozan a chance to rest up for the tournament. The team is finishing the regular season in awful form, but DeRozan has done well with five consecutive 20-point games.

    Julius Randle May 14 7:30am ET

    New York Knicks power forward Julius Randle logged a massive 45 minutes in Thursday's win over the Spurs and was close to a triple-double with 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists. He didn't really have an enjoyable shooting night with a 7-for-21 record from the field, but Randle went 10-for-10 at the charity stripe to surpass his season average in scoring (24.0). The Knicks' star man also recorded one steal and three turnovers. It's been a fantastic year for Randle, and he can complete the regular season with a back-to-back set against Charlotte and Boston over the weekend. Both are quite difficult matchups for him, but Randle has proved that he can get his against anyone in the league, so fantasy managers shouldn't be too worried.

    Alec Burks May 14 7:30am ET

    New York Knicks guard Alec Burks went off for 30 points on Thursday in his first game back from injury, leading the team to a 102-98 victory over San Antonio. He also led the team with 10 rebounds, while handing out a pair of assists with one block and two turnovers. Burks logged 34 minutes off the bench and made five triples with 10 attempts, to finish with 11-for-20 overall shooting from the field. The 29-year-old missed three games through his most recent injury. He's struggled to stay healthy all year, playing in only 47 games. The Knicks have two more games to come, with Burks potentially a star man again in both if Derrick Rose (ankle) remains out.

    Tobias Harris May 14 7:20am ET

    Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris carried the offense with 21 points in Thursday's loss to Miami, shooting 8-for-17 from the field and 5-for-6 at the foul line. He had no luck from downtown, going 0-for-4. Harris was one of only three Sixers players to get into double figures in scoring, and the list didn't include Joel Embiid, who had only six points on 3-for-6 shooting. Harris added four rebounds to his tally with one assist, one steal and one block. The Sixers rolled with a red-hot offense just last week, but they have now failed to hit the 100-point mark in back-to-back games. They will finish up the regular season with a pair of games against Harris' former team Orlando, which is a great matchup to find some offensive rhythm ahead of the playoffs, as the Magic are ranked 24th in defensive efficiency.

    Bam Adebayo May 14 7:10am ET

    Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo had an outstanding game against Joel Embiid and the Sixers on Thursday, going for 18 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in a 106-94 win. He added a block to his line as well, while shooting 9-for-13 from the field. Adebayo completely outshined MVP candidate Embiid, who managed only six points, two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes. The Heat will face the reigning MVP next as Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks get ready to host them on Saturday. Adebayo has averaged 17 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in the matchup this season.

    Jimmy Butler May 14 7:10am ET

    Miami Heat small forward Jimmy Butler made his best Reggie Miller impression on Thursday, going 4-for-4 from downtown in a 106-94 win over Philadelphia. He shot 6-for-10 overall from the field and 5-for-5 at the charity stripe to finish with a team-high 21 points. Butler's night included five rebounds, four assists and one steal with two turnovers. Prior to Thursday, Butler had made more than two triples in a game just once this season. His percentage from downtown is at a measly 21.4 percent, but he has now shot 6-for-8 from outside in his past three games, to pick up very good momentum ahead of Saturday's marquee matchup against Milwaukee.
