F - DAL
Mavs center Kristaps Porzingis played well yet again during Thursday's 126-111 loss to the Clippers, scoring a game-high 30 points (9-19 FG, 3-7 3pt, 9-9 FT) while grabbing nine rebounds and handing out five assists. The Latvian big man added one block and one turnover in a team-high 38 minutes of action.
The Unicorn has played sensational basketball in the NBA Bubble, averaging 30.3 PPG and 10 RPG in four games since the NBA Restart while adding ample defensive stats as well. Porzingis remains a top DFS option at center and is playing his way into late first round/early second round consideration for fantasy drafts next season.
Kristaps Porzingis continued his strong play, scoring 30 points (9-19 FG, 9-9 FT, 3-7 3PT) with nine rebounds, five assists, one block, and one turnover in 38 minutes in Thursday's 126-111 loss to the Clippers.
That's now three out of four games over 30 points for King Kristaps since play resumed. He continues to play heavy minutes for a Mavericks team that is looking to make some noise in the Bubble. He and Luka Doncic make an incredible tandem and will continue to put up impressive stat lines on a nightly basis. Porzingis gets a matchup with the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks, on Saturday.
Kristaps Porzingis scored 22 points (6-18 FG, 0-7 3PT, 10-11 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals over 27 minutes of play.
Porzingis wasn't as dominant as he had been in the first two games of the reboot, but he still put up a solid performance. He'll look to get back on track and shoot better from deep against the Clippers on Thursday, where he'll still be a fine fantasy option.
Coming off a monster performance with 39 points and 16 rebounds in his previous game, Mavs center Kristaps Porzingis was sensational again on Sunday night, scoring 30 points (10-20 FG, 2-5 3pt, 8-11 FT) while adding eight rebounds, four blocks, one assist, and one steal in 37 minutes of action in a tough 117-115 loss to Phoenix.
Suns center Deandre Ayton was mired in foul trouble all evening and Porzingis took full advantage. Porzingis looks fully healthy, is playing big minutes, and is heading to the playoffs after Dallas clinched a playoff berth Sunday with San Antonio beating Memphis earlier in the day.
Dallas center Kristaps Porzingis was sensational in the Mavs' first official NBA Restart game on Friday night, scoring a season-high 39 points (13-26 FG, 3-8 3pt, 10-11 FT) while hauling in 16 rebounds for a monstrous double-double. The Latvian center added two steals, two assists, one block, and two turnovers in a 153-149 overtime loss against the Rockets.
The 7'3" center took advantage of his significant height advantage all night long over the Rockets' undersized "small-ball" lineup, getting any shot he wanted all night long. Tonight marked Porzingis' 7th 30+ point scoring effort of the season. While tonight's matchup was very favorable for Porzingis in an offensive-minded scoring barrage against a team without a true center, the Mavs franchise big man looks primed to be an elite fantasy contributor the rest of the way.
