  • Jamal Crawford scores 19 in CP3's absence
    Jamal Crawford hit just 6-of-22 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for 19 points, five rebounds, five assists and a steal in Wednesday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: He was big in Game 1 with 21 points, five boards, four assists and three 3-pointers (without Chris Paul), and with or without Paul, should be primed for a big Game 3 back in Los Angeles. Don't be afraid to use him on Friday, although his production could take a slight hit if CP3 is back in action. Despite his poor shooting, he helped make up for it with his boards, assists, steal and 3-pointer tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Redick quiet in loss to Rockets
    J.J. Redick hit just 3-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, two assists and not much else in Wednesday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: Redick had 17 points in Game 1, but Jamal Crawford looks like the more reliable shooting guard in LAC for now. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers quiet in loss to Rockets
    Austin Rivers started at point guard again on Wednesday, but hit just 4-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points and two assists in a loss to the Rockets.

    Advice: Chris Paul's hamstring injury may or may not keep him out of Game 3, but the guy you want to rely on when he's out is Jamal Crawford, who was solid again with 19 points, five boards, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer. He hit just 6-of-22 shots, but seems to be the guy to rely on while Paul is wearing street clothes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Matt Barnes cools off in Game 2 loss
    Matt Barnes hit just 2-of-7 shots for six points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals before fouling out of Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: He didn't hit a 3-pointer and just didn't have it tonight. He scored 20 in Game 1 and also had 17 points in Saturday's Game 7 win over the Spurs, so odds are he bounces back in Game 3 against the Rockets. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Blake Griffin drops 34 & 15 in loss to HOU
    Blake Griffin continues to be the best player in the playoffs and had 34 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block on 13-of-23 shooting in Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Rockets.

    Advice: Griffin couldn't do much more and the Clippers are thrilled with a split in Houston, without Chris Paul. He was coming off five straight games with at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, and two straight triple-doubles, and while he didn't match those numbers tonight, the 34 points were a playoff high for this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Josh Smith plays just 17 minutes in Gm 2 win
    Josh Smith had eight points, six rebounds and two blocks in just 17 minutes of Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Clippers.

    Advice: He was effective in his limited run, which saw Smith play just 17 minutes. If Smith wasn't around, Terrence Jones would look like a much more attractive fantasy option, although Jones is still the guy we'd recommend using in daily leagues, based on the minutes disparity. Smith is averaging just 8.5 points in this series thus far. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Dwight Howard goes for 24-16-4 in win
    Dwight Howard hit 8-of-11 shots for 24 points, 16 rebounds, a steal and four blocks in Wednesday's Game 2 win against the Clippers.

    Advice: The bad news is that he hit just 8-of-21 free throws, but his work on the boards and on both ends of the court helped the Rockets secure the win to tie the series at 1-1. He's averaging 18.0 points, 15.6 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 3.4 blocks over his last five games, and doesn't look anything like the banged up Howard we last saw toiling for the Lakers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Trevor Ariza double-doubles in Game 2 win
    Trevor Ariza hit just 4-of-12 shots, but still had 15 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer, and also hit 6-of-7 free throws in the Rockets Game 2 win on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ariza has been a key for the Rockets in the playoffs and put up some nice numbers, despite an off shooting night. He had 17 points and five boards in Game 1, and should be primed for another solid outing in Game 3. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Terrence Jones plays well in Game 2 win
    Terrence Jones hit 4-of-10 shots to finish with 10 points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's 115-109 win over the Clippers, to tie the series at 1-1.

    Advice: Jones is going to struggle to put up monster numbers as long as Josh Smith is playing for the Rockets, but Smith lasted just 17 minutes tonight, vs. TJ's 27. He's a fairly dependable and affordable big man to use in daily formats right now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Big Game James Harden scores 32 in Rox win
    James Harden hit 7-of-17 shots, 3-of-10 3-pointers and 15-of-15 free throws for 32 points, three rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block and seven turnovers in Wednesday's home win in Game 2 against the Clippers, evening the series at 1-1.

    Advice: The Rockets shot just 66 percent from the free throw line, and it would have been disastrous had Harden not knocked down his freebies. The Rockets got a must-win tonight, but are still in a bit of a hole to the Clippers, especially with Chris Paul possibly returning for Game 3. Harden, as usual, is a must-start/use player in all fantasy formats as long as he's in Houston's lineup. The Rockets attempted 64 free throws (making 42 of them), which is the highest number of attempts since 1993. They were also just two off the playoff record of 66 attempts, which was set in 1968. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Tristan Thompson steps up with 35 minutes
    Tristan Thompson was tremendous in the starting lineup against the Bulls on Wednesday with five points, 12 rebounds, one assist and no turnovers on 2-of-5 from the field in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He was up to his old tricks with six offensive boards. It is worth noting that none of his five shots were putbacks and he was actually had some involvement in halfcourt plays. Needless to say, he'll be in the starting lineup on Friday and he could actually get even more playing time and push Mike Miller out of the rotation. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:50 pm
  • Quincy Pondexter has left knee scoped
    Quincy Pondexter had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Wednesday morning and a return timetable will be announced soon.

    Advice: While the prognosis is not yet known, this procedure is usually a 4-6 week recovering time. He played a little more while the Pelicans were missing guys like Jrue Holiday and will likely just see minutes in the teens while the team is at full strength. His contract is through the 2017-18 season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:29 pm
  • Austin Rivers listed as probable starter Weds
    Austin Rivers is listed as the probable starter for Game 2 against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Head coach Doc Rivers said that Chris Paul (hamstring) is very unlikely to play, so it looks like Rivers could make his second consecutive start tonight. Rivers scored 17 points with one rebound, three assists, four steals, and four three-pointers in Game 1, so he would be worth a look in daily leagues if Paul sits out tonight. Expect an update prior to tip-off. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:50 am
  • Alan Anderson may need surgery on ankle
    Alan Anderson may need to have surgery on his ankle this summer to clean up some bone spurs.

    Advice: It isn't clear how much time he would miss if he decided to undergo surgery, but we will update his status as soon as we know more. Anderson is set to become a free agent and all indications point to him leaving Brooklyn, so we will continue to follow this story closely. At this point in his career, Anderson likely wouldn't have a substantial role regardless of where he lands. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:44 am
  • Nets will extend qualifying offer to Teletovic
    The Nets will extend a qualifying offer to Mirza Teletovic, making him a restricted free agent this summer.

    Advice: Nets general manager Billy King said that the market will dictate whether or not they will be able to keep Teletovic, so there is no guarantee that we will see him back in Brooklyn next season. Teletovic should garner plenty of interest from other teams for his ability to space the floor, so it will be interesting to see what happens this summer. As of right now, Teletovic won't be a target in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:38 am
  • Mason Plumlee will play in summer league
    According to Nets general manager Billy King, Mason Plumlee will play in the summer league.

    Advice: Plumlee's role was very sporadic this season and he hasn't developed as quickly as the Nets would have liked. He averaged just 8.7 points, 6.2 boards, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks in 21.8 minutes per game in the regular season, but head coach Lionel Hollis was often very critical of him. Plumlee will definitely benefit from some additional experience in the offseason, but his fantasy value will hinge on what the Nets decide to do with players such as Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez this summer. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:31 am
  • Tristan Thompson will start Game 2 Wednesday
    Tristan Thompson will move into the starting lineup for Game 2 against the Bulls on Wednesday, sending Mike Miller back to the bench.

    Advice: The move makes a lot of sense for the Cavaliers, as they will now match up better with the Bulls' imposing frontcourt tandem of Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah. In 15 previous starts in the regular season, Thompson averaged 12.6 points, 9.7 boards and 0.9 blocks per game, so he is certainly worth a look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:07 am
  • Dwight Howard brushes off late-game usage
    Dwight Howard didn't attempt a shot over the final seven minutes of Game 1 vs. the Clippers, but he brushed off concerns about his limited offensive role.

    Advice: "I can’t focus on that," he said. "I got to continue to be a presence on the defensive end, get more blocked shots, get more rebounds, run the floor more, do all the things I can do." Howard still finished with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting, 10 rebounds, one steal and five blocks in Houston's Game 1 defeat, and Kevin McHale will surely emphasize the need to keep him engaged on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:02 am
  • Austin Rivers says he can run sets Paul can't
    Austin Rivers said there are sets he can run that Chris Paul can't and vice versa.

    Advice: "I can’t run the same sets he does and there are sets that I run that he can’t run," Rivers said. While Rivers scored 17 points to go along with one rebound, three assists, four steals, and four three-pointers in Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets, he's also saying he can do things that a top-5 MVP candidate can't. We'll just let the quote speak for itself. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:19 am
  • Griffin breaks the pinball machine in G1 win
    Blake Griffin triple-doubled with 26 points on 9-of-19 shooting (8-of-10 FTs), 14 rebounds, 13 assists and one steal in the Clippers' 99-92 Game 1 win over the Rockets in Houston.

    Advice: Griffin looked visibly tired after a long battle with the Spurs, but with Chris Paul (hamstring) out he had a ton of responsibility tonight as you can see. Heck, DeAndre Jordan even chipped in with five assists to go with two steals, four blocks and an otherwise normal 10 points and 13 boards. Griffin has been outstanding during these playoffs and the Rockets looked like a lower class team in tonight's series opener. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:13 pm
  • Barnes all over the court in Clippers win
    Matt Barnes was everywhere in the Clippers' Game 1 win over the Rockets on Monday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks in 42 minutes.

    Advice: Barnes is a guy that the Clippers would love to rest up in a short series, but for now he's going to be a workhorse and especially while Chris Paul (hamstring) is out. The Rockets didn't exert any of their will on tonight's game and if they have any life in them this type of upside could vanish pretty quickly, and most certainly will when Paul returns. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:09 pm
  • Austin powers the Clippers, at least a little
    Austin Rivers started for injured Chris Paul (hamstring) and scored 17 points on 5-of-12 shooting (including four threes) with one rebound, three assists and four steals in Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets.

    Advice: Let's be clear, he had more bad plays than we could count and was a sieve defensively, but he buried open threes and the Rockets were their own brand of terrible. If Paul can't go in Game 2 (or Doc Rivers thinks he can win one without him), then this would be Rivers' high-water mark. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:06 pm
  • Crawford goes big with 21-5-4 in Game 1 win
    Jamal Crawford stepped up with Chris Paul (hamstring) out for Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets, scoring 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Crawford showed a tiny bit more explosion than he had in the Spurs series and he's the team's primary ballhandler with Paul out so the numbers will be there if that's the case in Game 2. He had six turnovers but that's a tradeoff owners will take here. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:03 pm
  • Jones struggles in lethargic effort vs. LAC
    Terrence Jones played 16 minutes in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Clippers, scoring just four points on 1-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Jones still doesn't appear to be in tip-top shape and while that worked against a broken Mavs team it'll be tougher against the Clippers. There's not a lot of upside here until he shows us that he can run up and down the court with energy. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:57 pm
  • Ariza hits 7-of-13 shots for 17 points
    Trevor Ariza hit 7-of-13 shots (including two threes) for 17 points, five boards, four assists, three steals and one block in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Ariza couldn't hit the broadside of the barn last series and it would be fairly shocking if he had two bad series in a row. Consider riding him as he heats back up. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:55 pm
  • Howard goes for 22 and 10 with five blocks
    Dwight Howard scored 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting (4-of-9 FTs) with 10 rebounds, one steal and five blocks in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Howard is going to have a tough matchup with DeAndre Jordan, but there's still plenty of ways for him to get his numbers, especially with some of the lineups the Clippers are forced to play due to a lack of depth. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:53 pm
  • Smith struggles in series opener vs. Clippers
    Josh Smith hit just 3-of-12 shots and 1-of-5 treys in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Clippers, finishing with nine points, five boards, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Simply put, these aren't the Mavs anymore. Smith is going to get big minutes to produce with, but Dallas did a great job making everybody on the Rockets look a lot better than they were. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:51 pm
  • Austin Rivers starting for LAC in Game 1
    Austin Rivers will start for injured Chris Paul (hamstring) in Monday's Game 1 opener against the Rockets.

    Advice: Rivers won't face an impact defender and he'll have quite a bit of playing time to put points on the board, but look for the offense to be run through Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:30 pm
  • Mirza Teletovic leaving future up to agent
    Mirza Teletovic said he'll leave his future up to his agent.

    Advice: Teletovic will be an unrestricted free agent if the Nets don't extend a qualifying contract offer, but that seems unlikely. After returning from blood clots on his lungs this season, Teletovic's future in Brooklyn is a question mark. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:09 am
  • Anderson offers lukewarm Nets endorsement
    When asked about his impending free agency, Alan Anderson offered a lukewarm endorsement of his future with the Nets.

    Advice: "I'm free, so..." he said. "I would love to stay in Brooklyn, but I am a free agent. So I will be free." Anderson should have no problem clearing offers north of $3M annually, more than twice what he made in 2014-15. We don't expect him back with the Nets. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:07 am
  • Blake Griffin posts triple-double in victory
    Blake Griffin triple-doubled against the Spurs on Saturday with 24 points, 13 boards, 10 assists and four turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: That's two triple-doubles in this series and Blake's averages are otherworldly. In the seven games, Griffin averaged 24.1 points, 13.1 boards, 7.4 dimes, 1.4 steals, 1.4 blocks and 2.7 turnovers. He's playing some of his best ball of his life and he'll have huge numbers against the Rockets as well. The series starts on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:29 pm
  • J.J. Redick scores 14 points vs. Spurs
    J.J. Redick hit two clutch 3-pointers on back-to-back fourth quarter possessions to help the Clippers earn a win over the Spurs on Saturday, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: Just Jumpers Redick. Few people are going to talk about Redick and the fantastic year he had because of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, but the Clippers probably wouldn't have won today without him. Additionally, his numbers after the break were big, averaging 19.6 points, 2.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.9 treys. Only two Warriors had more 3-pointers after the break than J.J. Jamal Crawford was hot early and finished with 16 points, two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:22 pm
  • Alan Anderson will opt out, become free agent
    Alan Anderson expects to opt out of his player option in favor of free agency this summer.

    Advice: The 32-year-old swingman shot 34.8 percent from downtown this season and became a reliable rotation player for Lionel Hollins, though he was little more than a 3-point specialist in fantasy leagues. It's not surprising to see him turn down a $1.3 million salary to pursue the security of a longer-team deal. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:40 am
  • Alan Anderson coming off the bench
    Alan Anderson will come off the bench again on Friday.

    Advice: The Nets are going with the same starters despite Anderson playing remarkably well. If Anderson is hot, expect him to take minutes away from Bojan Bogdanovic and/or Thaddeus Young. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:18 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 26 in Game 6 win on road
    Blake Griffin logged 41 minutes against the Spurs during a Game 6 victory on Thursday, scoring 26 points with 12 boards, six assists, one steal and four blocks.

    Advice: He is putting up some enormous stat lines right now. In his previous five, Griffin averaged 24.2 points, 13.2 boards, 7.0 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.7 steals in 41.2 minutes. If Glen Davis (ankle) is out for Game 7, Griffin will likely be near 44 minutes. Although, he looked really tired at times tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:50 pm
  • Alan Anderson catches fire in a loss
    Alan Anderson kept the Nets in the game with a 23-point gem in a loss to the Hawks on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds and four 3-pointers on 9-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: He started the second half over Bojan Bogdanovic thanks to scoring 16 points in the first half. Anderson was already extremely efficient in this series, turning in an 80.0 effective field goal percentage in his previous four games. He will likely come off the bench on Friday with minutes in the 20s. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:42 pm
  • Blake Griffin posts 30 & 14 in Game 5 defeat
    Blake Griffin finished Tuesday's crushing Game 5 loss with a game-high 30 points (10-of-15 FGs, 10-of-14 FTs), 14 rebounds, seven assists, four steals, one block and five turnovers.

    Advice: Griffin is averaging 7.3 assists per game in the playoffs, tied for fourth behind only J.J. Barea, James Harden and John Wall -- yes, he's ahead of Chris Paul. He's one of three players with at least four playoff double-doubles (Pau Gasol leads the way with five) and the Spurs don't have a player to check him individually. On the other hand, Blake is shooting an abysmal 19.0 percent in the fourth quarter during the series. He'll look to even the score in a hostile environment during Game 6 on Thursday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:36 pm
  • Matt Barnes (shoulder) plays 28 mins Tuesday
    Matt Barnes (shoulder) had seven points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 28 minutes on Tuesday, as the Clippers lost Game 5 by a final score of 107-111.

    Advice: Barnes' mildly sprained rotator cuff didn't seem to bother him tonight, and his playing time was mostly limited due to Doc Rivers' decision to roll with Jamal Crawford for longer stretches. Barnes was guilty of failing to box out during a missed free throw at the end of the game, essentially sealing the Spurs' win with an offensive board, but that shouldn't affect his role during Thursday's potential elimination game. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:24 pm
  • Rockets win behind Terrence Jones' late surge
    Terrence Jones led a late surge to seal the Rockets' Game 5 win on Tuesday, posting 15 points and five rebounds while shooting 6-of-11 from the field with one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Jones played solid defense vs. Dirk Nowitzki and his clutch scoring helped stem a late run by Dallas, but his role has been diminished with Dwight Howard healthy and Josh Smith soaking up 22+ minutes at PF. He'll have his work cut out for him in the second round of the playoffs, as he'll be starting opposite either Blake Griffin or Tim Duncan. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:21 pm
  • Josh Smith drops 20 pts in 22 minutes Tuesday
    Josh Smith played only 22 minutes off the Rockets' bench on Tuesday, but he piled up 20 points, two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, two assists and one steal while committing four of Houston's 21 turnovers.

    Advice: The Rockets tied for the second-most turnovers during the regular season (16.7 per game) and the problem reared its head again tonight, allowing the Mavs to hang close in the first half before fading down the stretch. Smoove's averages in the first round bode well for Houston going forward -- 17.4 points on 51.5 percent shooting, 1.8 threes, 6.4 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks in only 25.6 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:20 pm
  • Dwight Howard gets 18 & 19 as HOU advances
    Dwight Howard dominated the paint during Tuesday's series-clinching victory, finishing with 18 points, 19 rebounds, four steals and four blocks.

    Advice: "[Dwight's] knee has been good," coach Kevin McHale said before Game 5. "He is bouncy again. He has been feeling good." It showed again tonight as Howard logged 39 minutes, going 7-of-14 from the field and successfully navigating early foul trouble. His efforts helped Houston advance to face the winner of the Spurs vs. Clippers series. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:20 pm
  • Trevor Ariza says Rockets ready for Game 5
    Trevor Ariza promised the Rockets would have a bounce-back effort in Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: After a lackluster effort in Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Mavericks, Ariza promised there would be no Game 5 repeat. "They played harder than we did," Ariza said. "Tuesday, that won't happen again." Ariza has seen his numbers dip in the postseason as he's only averaging 9.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers on 29.7 percent shooting from the field, so we'll look for him to fulfill his promised breakout against the Mavs on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:23 am
  • Matt Barnes (right shoulder) will play Tues
    Matt Barnes (sore right shoulder) will play on Tuesday in Game 5.

    Advice: He had an ice pack on his shoulder and should be able to resume his normal role. In four games against the Spurs in the playoffs, Barnes averaged 5.3 points, 4.3 boards, 1.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 treys on 28.6 percent from the field in 28.0 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:41 pm
  • Blake Griffin (shoulder stinger) will play
    Blake Griffin is dealing with a right shoulder stinger and will play in Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of the injury and it sounds minor. Griffin logged 43 minutes on Sunday with 20 points and 19 boards. He's also posting terrific averages of 22.3 points, 13.3 boards, 7.3 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 steals in the first round. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:37 pm
  • Rivers: Blake is our second-best passer
    Doc Rivers called Blake Griffin the second-best passer on the Clippers behind Chris Paul.

    Advice: When asked why he had his power forward operating for others, Rivers responded simply, "Because after Chris, Blake is our best passer." Griffin averaged a career-high 5.3 assists this season after never eclipsing the 4.0 mark in any campaign prior, and he's averaging 7.3 assists in the first round series vs. San Antonio through its first four games. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:08 am
  • Josh Smith catches fire, scores 23 pts Sunday
    Josh Smith caught fire down the stretch of Sunday's Game 4 loss in Dallas, finishing with 23 points (8-of-10 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs), four 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Smoove's shot selection tonight is a testament to the Rockets' offensive system -- he had five attempts beyond the arc, four attempts in the paint, and one "mid-range shawty" look from 11 feet. The Rockets are still firmly in control of the series with a 3-1 lead and they'll look to close out the Mavs with a win in Houston on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 26, 9:42 pm
  • Dwight Howard shoots just 3-of-13 at FT line
    Dwight Howard's free throw struggles were on full display in Sunday's Game 4 defeat, as he went 3-of-13 at the line to finish with 13 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Howard missed two months with a knee injury and the Rockets limited him as a precaution down the stretch, a decision which has already paid off with solid production in the playoffs. He's averaging 16.3 points on 61.0 percent shooting, 12.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.8 blocks through four postseason games. He'd even made 12-of-18 free throws prior to tonight's struggles on the road. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 26, 9:30 pm
  • Terrence Jones held to 18 minutes in Game 4
    Terrence Jones started Game 4 on Sunday but he played only 18 minutes to finish with 13 points, six rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: With Donatas Motiejunas out for the playoffs following back surgery, we've been expecting bigger postseason numbers from T-Jones as the Rockets' starting power forward. He was again overshadowed by Josh Smith, however, and through four games he's averaging only 12.3 points on 38.1 percent shooting. He also has zero assists or blocks in his past three games and owners should at least temper expectations while Houston is matched up with the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com
