Jamal Crawford G LAC 1 hour ago
Crawford scored 19 points (6-22 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT) with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Rockets.
Crawford has spent extra time handling the ball with Chris Paul out due to a hamstring injury. He has shot 14-40 from the field over the past two games. Look for his shot to start falling soon.
DeAndre Jordan C LAC 1 hour ago
Jordan scored 16 points (6-6 FG, 4-6 FT) with 12 rebounds, two blocks and two steals in 25 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Rockets.
Jordan picked up four fouls in his 25 minutes and struggled to contain Dwight Howard. Look for him to bounce back as the series heads to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Friday.
Blake Griffin PF LAC 1 hour ago
Griffin scored 34 points (13-23 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-11 FT) with 15 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 41 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Rockets.
Griffin has been the best player in the post-season so far and nearly got his team over the line again in this game. He was coming off back-to-back triple-doubles and the Clippers will continue to rely on his all-round game.
Trevor Ariza SG/SF HOU 1 hour ago
Ariza scored 15 points (4-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT) with 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 45 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 victory against the Clippers.
Ariza scored 17 points in Game 1 and backed it up with a solid performance here. He played nearly 10 more minutes than both James Harden and Dwight Howard in this game, showing just how important he is on the wing.
James Harden SG HOU 2 hours ago
Harden scored 32 points (7-17 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 15-15 FT) with three rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 victory against the Clippers.
Harden also had seven turnovers, but relentlessly attacked the basket all night, hence his large number of free throws. He is averaging 27 points and 8.3 assists so far during the post-season.
Dwight Howard C HOU 2 hours ago
Howard scored 24 points (8-11 FG, 8-21 FT) with 16 rebounds, three assists, four blocks and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's Game 2 win against the Clippers.
The Rockets levelled the series with Howard being a dominant force, despite his terrible game from the free throw line. He has been a beast defensively and will need to continue his strong form to help his team get past a determined Clippers outfit.
Cleanthony Early SF NY 4 hours ago
Early played 39 games as a rookie, averaging 5.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.6 minutes for the Knicks this season.
Early missed over a month of action due to arthroscopic surgery on his right knee early in the season and failed to really establish himself in his playing opportunities afterward. Nonetheless, the Knicks' second round pick from last summer, Early should be back with the team next season, when he'll hope to stay healthy and maybe receive more regular minutes off the bench.
Quincy Acy F NY 4 hours ago
Acy averaged 5.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game across 68 appearances (22 starts) for the Knicks this season.
Acy was traded to the Knicks last offseason as a tough-minded player to help New York on the boards. While his 4.4 rebounds this season marked a career-high, Acy never became more than a rotation player for the league's second-worst team. As a result, it's likely his role will be limited wherever he plays next season, but his nightly effort is something that team will probably come to appreciate.
Lou Amundson PF/C NY 4 hours ago
Amundson signed with the Knicks in January and finished with averages of 6.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 20.9 minutes per game across 41 appearances (35 starts) for New York this season.
Amundson spent 12 games with the Cavaliers earlier this season, but joined a dismal Knicks squad in January and immediately helped out their interior presence. Nonetheless, the Knicks marked Amundson's tenth NBA team in nine seasons, evidencing a journeyman career that has made it difficult for him to establish staying power in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Ricky Ledo SG NY 4 hours ago
Ledo signed with the Knicks in March and finished his 12-game stint in New York with averages of 7.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 19.4 minutes per game.
Ledo has played 28 NBA games over the course of the past two seasons after being selected in the second round of the 2013 Draft. Following a failed stint in Dallas, the 22-year-old showed some promise for the Knicks toward the end this season, even if he was playing in relatively meaningless games. As of now, it remains to be seen where Ledo will continue his development next season, but his role is likely to be limited anyway.
