1/20/2018 DeMarre Carroll, Bkn, F
DeMarre Carroll tied a career-high with 26 points on 9-of-12 shooting as the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Miami Heat 101-95 on Friday. Carroll grabbed six rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 30:48 on the floor. He added one block and two steals. Carroll went 3 of 5 from behind the arc.

Analysis: With a recent knee sprain now behind him, Carroll has put together a terrific week by averaging 19.7 points on 52.9 percent shooting along with eight rebounds in three games. The veteran forward is 7 of 13 from 3-point range and 16 of 18 from the foul line during this impressive surge.
1/20/2018 Allen Crabbe, Bkn, G-F
Allen Crabbe scored five points Friday on 2-of-9 shooting as the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Miami Heat 101-95. Crabbe grabbed five rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 26:46 on the floor. He added two blocks. Crabbe struggled from behind the arc, coming up empty on all six of his attempts.

Analysis: One of the more unpredictable scorers around, Crabbe unsurprisingly couldn't follow up his 20-point effort Wednesday against the Spurs in which he went 4 of 6 from 3-point range and pulled down eight rebounds. He had just six points on 1-of-7 shooting in the game prior to that one, so perhaps he's primed for a big performance when the Nets visit Detroit on Sunday.
1/20/2018 Tobias Harris, Det, F
Tobias Harris scored 17 points Friday on 7-of-19 shooting as the Detroit Pistons lost to the Washington Wizards 122-112. Harris pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 31:06 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Harris went 1 of 7 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Harris has been dismal from beyond the arc lately, hitting just 4 of 22 tries from 3 over his last four games. Detroit's leading scorer is averaging 14 points and 4.3 rebounds - both below his season marks - during that stretch, but he still puts up enough shots to be a threat for big numbers every time out.
1/20/2018 Andre Drummond, Det, F-C
Andre Drummond scored 14 points Friday, going 4 of 5 from the field, as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Washington Wizards 122-112. Drummond pulled down 21 rebounds and had eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 42:40 of playing time before fouling out. He added two blocks and two steals.

Analysis: The league's leading rebounder has been even better than usual on the glass lately, racking up a whopping 16.6 boards per outing over his last five games. Drummond continues to get it done in other areas as well, having averaged 17 points on 61.8 percent shooting along with 4.8 assists and 1.6 blocks during that span.
1/20/2018 Ish Smith, Det, PG
Ish Smith scored 15 points Friday on 7-of-11 shooting as the Detroit Pistons lost to the Washington Wizards 122-112. Smith grabbed two rebounds and dished out seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -5 in his 34:33 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.

Analysis: Since replacing the injured Reggie Jackson in the starting lineup, Smith is averaging 13 points, 5.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 11 games. Those are hardly elite fantasy numbers, though one could do worse from the point guard position.
1/20/2018 Bradley Beal, Was, SG
Bradley Beal scored 26 points Friday on 7-of-12 shooting as the Washington Wizards topped the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Beal grabbed three rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 40:20 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Beal went 4 of 7 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Beal has been on the mark thus far on this road trip, which he began by sinking 4 of 6 shots from beyond the arc while also scoring 26 points Wednesday in Charlotte. The sharpshooter is now averaging 26.2 points, five rebounds and three assists over his last five away games.
1/20/2018 Otto Porter Jr., Was, F
Otto Porter Jr. scored 16 points Friday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Washington Wizards defeated the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Porter Jr. grabbed seven rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +14 in his 37:52 of playing time. He tacked on four steals. Porter Jr. went 4 of 5 from behind the arc.

Analysis: This is a positive sign after Porter totaled just 14 points over his previous two games and averaged a disappointing 8.5 in his past eight. The young forward had gone 6 of 27 (22.2 percent) from 3-point range during that slump, so perhaps he's finally on his way to getting back on track.
1/20/2018 John Wall, Was, PG
John Wall scored 16 points Friday, going 6 of 15 from the field, as the Washington Wizards defeated the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Wall grabbed three rebounds and had 11 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 37:19 on the floor. He added one steal. Wall went 2 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Wall still has an issue with turnovers - he had five in this game and 32 over his last six contests - but his other numbers have remained high-end. The four-time All-Star has averaged 23.8 points, 10.8 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.7 steals during that stretch.
1/20/2018 Kelly Oubre Jr., Was, SF
Kelly Oubre Jr. scored a career-high 26 points Friday on 9-of-14 shooting as the Washington Wizards topped the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Oubre Jr. grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +5 in his 31:23 on the floor. Oubre Jr. went 5 of 9 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The third-year wing's fantasy stock is on the rise, as he's averaged 16.3 points and gone 20 of 38 from beyond the arc during a seven-game streak of double-figure scoring performances. With Otto Porter Jr. not in the best of form, Oubre has a chance to continue to get big minutes as the Wizards' catalyst off the bench.
1/20/2018 Darren Collison, Ind, G
Darren Collison scored five points Friday on 1-of-9 shooting as the Indiana Pacers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-86. Collison pulled down two rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 25:09 on the floor. He added one block and three steals.

Analysis: Collison had shot a sizzling 65.9 percent from the field while averaging 17.5 points over his previous four games, but couldn't get much of anything to fall in the second of a back-to-back set for Indiana. The former UCLA star gets a needed day off before the Pacers next take the court, though it'll be in a tough matchup Sunday in San Antonio.
1/20/2018 Victor Oladipo, Ind, G
Victor Oladipo scored 25 points Friday, going 11 of 26 from the field, as the Indiana Pacers lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-86. Oladipo grabbed five rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 35:49 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Oladipo went 1 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The Pacers' offense didn't show up on this night, but Oladipo did his thing by producing a third straight game with at least 23 points and five rebounds. The dynamic guard is averaging 22 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.4 steals in eight games since returning from a knee injury earlier this month.
