Marcus Morris PF PHO 2 Days
Marcus Morris scored 22 points against the Kings during Wednesday's 104-99 win with six boards, two steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
He's played well against the Kings this season with a 13.0 points per game average in his previous three. Morris didn't quite have the year his brother Markieff had, but he made some nice strides as an offensive weapon. He'll be on the radar in deeper leagues depending on how the Suns handle their business in the offseason.
Archie Goodwin SG PHO 2 Days
Archie Goodwin busted out for a career-high 29 points vs. the Kings on Wednesday, adding four boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer on 11-of-13 from the field in 31 minutes.
He made a huge splash in Las Vegas Summer League, but he was extremely quiet until tonight. If not for Gerald Green making a strong case for Most Improved Player, we might have seen more of Goodwin. He's a plus defender and showed tonight that he can really get to the rim. His jumper needs work and he's unlikely to be a target in fantasy drafts next season.
Will Barton SG POR 2 Days
Will Barton came off the bench for a career-high 23 points, 10 rebounds and three 3-pointers on 7-of-20 shooting.
Robin Lopez led the starters in minutes with just 14 of them tonight, but still managed 15 points and nine rebounds, while LaMarcus Aldridge took the entire night off. The Blazers are healthy and ready for their first-round match up against the Warriors, so don't let tonight's strange box score fool you.
Jamal Crawford G LAC 2 Days
Jamal Crawford hit 10-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 34 points, five rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Wednesday's meaningless loss to the Blazers.
The Clips secured the No. 3 seed when the Thunder beat the Pistons earlier, and the regulars took this one off. Crawford was great, but wasn't even the best J. Crawford of the night, as GSW's Jordan had a monster night. Darren Collison and Matt Barnes each added 19 points on the night and Blake Griffin's suspension is over. The Clippers are healthy and ready for their first-round match up with the Warriors.
Ben McLemore SG SAC 2 Days
Ben McLemore ended his season with a bang on Wednesday during a 104-99 loss to the Suns, scoring a career-high 31 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.
He scored 19 points on Sunday and figured out how to get his own shot to close the season. McLemore's off-the-ball game needed some work throughout the year and his isolation game was non-existent for much of the season, but he showed some promise. Still, the sample size is too small to make him a target in drafts next season.
DeAndre Jordan C LAC 2 Days
DeAndre Jordan started on Wednesday, but played just one minute before leaving with no stats.
He's not hurt. He just wanted to say he started all 82 games this season, as well as keep his streak of 241 straight games played alive. He's good to go for the playoffs, along with Blake Griffin and the rest of the Clippers. They'll face the Warriors in Round 1.
Rudy Gay SF SAC 2 Days
Rudy Gay played 16 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring six points with six boards, two assists and one turnover.
It was a bit of a surprise to even see him in the lineup after missing Sunday's game due to a back injury. Gay had a tremendous turnaround with the Kings after putting up some horrible efficiency with the Raptors earlier this year. The Kings got him more buckets in transition and he was much better off screens, so he could keep it up in 2014-15.
DeMar DeRozan SG/SF TOR 2 Days
DeMar DeRozan returned from a night of rest and played 22 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with nine points and five rebounds.
He's good to go for the Raps' Round 1 meeting with the Nets, and he's surely looking forward to it.
Tim Duncan PF/C SA 2 Days
Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter sat out on Wednesday, but the Spurs are healthy and ready for their first-round match up with the Mavericks.
The Spurs were 4-0 vs. the Mavs this season and the old guys got plenty of rest down the stretch.
LaMarcus Aldridge PF/C POR 2 Days
LaMarcus Aldridge and Mo Williams sat out Wednesday's finale, but both should be ready to go for the playoffs.
The Blazers will get the Rockets in Round 1 and it will be all hands on deck in what should be a thrilling playoff match up.
