Jokic scored 29 points against Portland
Nikola Jokic Had 29 points (12-of-20 FG, 4-of-5 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes in Sunday's 112-103 win over Portland. Jokic may not have posted a triple-double like he did on Friday, but the two-time MVP still provides good value for the fantasy managers who have him on the roster.
According to Basketball Monster, Joker is third in value with 8 and 9 cats per game for the season. The only problem for fantasy managers in the short term is the Week 16 schedule, as the Nuggets only play twice and their first game isn't until Thursday night against the Lakers. Jokic is good enough to make up for that inactivity, but the Nuggets back-to-back games (Friday at Sacramento) could complicate things.
Sabonis scores 30 points against the Pistons
Domantas Sabonis Led the Kings with 30 points (11-of-17 FG, 7-of-10 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in a 133-120 loss to the Pistons on Wednesday. Sacramento trailed the Pistons by 15 points in the third quarter, prompting cheers from the fans.
They were cheering late in the period, however, as Sabonis scored 14 points in the third to give them a two-point lead heading into the fourth. However, they couldn't go on to win, although that didn't stop Sabonis from doing his job. He couldn't extend his triple-double streak to three games, but he did hit 30 for the first time since Jan. 9, their other game against Detroit this season. He will look to continue his production and help his team get back on track against Denver on Friday.
