Mike Conley Drills Five Triples In Victory

Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley knocked down five three-pointers for the second consecutive game during Mondays win over the Golden State Warriors. Conley, who has had a painfully slow start to the season offensively, compiled 22 points and seven assists during the victory. His first 10 contests have put him on pace for career lows in field-goal percentage (36.5) and assists (3.9) per game, as he acclimates to his new franchise. He squares off with the Nets on Tuesday, whom he dropped north of 30 points against in each matchup last season.

Draymond Green Logs 22 Minutes In Return To Action

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green took the floor during Mondays loss to the Utah Jazz and played 22 minutes following a five-game absence. Green finished with four points, seven rebounds and four assists, going 2-for-7 from the field overall, including 0-for-4 from long range. The three-time All-Star will presumably have a larger offensive role with Stephen Curry (hand) out of the mix, but Green has shot just 40.8 percent from the floor in his first six games and has played more than 28 minutes in just two of those outings. How his offensive game adjusts to the loss of Curry and Klay Thompson (knee) remains to be seen.

D'Angelo Russell Continues Scoring Barrage In Defeat

Golden State Warriors point/shooting guard D'Angelo Russell opened Mondays contest against the Utah Jazz scorching hot, compiling 16 points in the first eight minutes. He would finish with 33 points, giving him his fourth consecutive outing with at least 30 points scored. Russell got up 25 shots, 13 of which found the bottom of the basket, including five from long range. Even as he paces the offensive attack, he was able to tie his season high with eight assists, also pitching in two rebounds. With the pace at which Golden State continues to play, its difficult to see Russell being slowed for any extended period of time, which should only increase his fantasy value.

Donovan Mitchell Knocks Down Season-High Five Triples

Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell put together a strong 23-point outing during Mondays win over the Golden State Warriors, knocking down a season-best five three-pointers, while adding eight rebounds and six assists to his stat line. The third-year guard has opened the 2019-20 campaign scorching hot from the field, having knocked down 45.5 percent of his triples. He remains the No. 1 scoring option for Utah moving forward, a fact that bodes well when he matches up with the up-tempo Nets on Tuesday.

J.J. Redick Drops Seven Treys On Rockets

New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard J.J. Redick was on fire from downtown in Monday's matchup against the Rockets, sinking seven triples on his way to a season-high 24 points. He played 37 minutes as a starter and was 7-for-15 from downtown while adding three assists. Redick has now sunk a whopping 12 treys in the last two games and he's shooting an incredible 51.4 percent from deep with 7.4 attempts this month. He gets to take on his former team the Clippers next on home court. Bizarrely, Redick has performed better on the road than at home this season, as he averages only eight points per game at the Smoothie King Center.

Jrue Holiday Just Misses Out On Triple-Double

New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday came very close to his first triple-double of the season on Monday, finishing a 122-116 loss to Houston with 18 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds. Holiday had an awful shooting night, missing all seven attempts from deep and going 6-for-21 overall from the field. He also committed six of the team's 16 turnovers. Holiday has struggled to get going this season, as he's averaging only 14.6 points per game on 36.4 percent shooting. His struggles will likely continue in the next matchup against the Clippers and elite defender Patrick Beverley.

Clint Capela Records Another 20-Rebound Game

Houston Rockets center Clint Capela was hungry for glass again on Monday, registering his second consecutive 20-rebound game in a win over New Orleans. He also tallied his fourth consecutive double-double by scoring 11 on superb 5-for-6 efficiency, while adding two blocks and one steal to his line as well. Capela started the month with a pair of quiet outings, but he's been a beast across the last four games, averaging over 17 rebounds and 14 points. He'll look to continue the feast on Wednesday against the Clippers, who are giving up 15.8 rebounds per 48 minutes to opposing centers this season.

Russell Westbrook Gets 26 Points In Win Over Pelicans

Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook had his second consecutive game with 26 points on Monday in a 122-116 win over New Orleans. He struggled mightily from three-point range with a 1-for-8 record, but he still managed a good 11-for-21 efficiency overall from the field. Mr. Triple-Double missed out on a triple-double for a fifth consecutive time, collecting only five rebounds and four assists. He did, however, have a good game on the defensive end, picking up four steals. Russ is averaging 2.4 steals for the month. He's set to meet his old enigma Patrick Beverley next on Wednesday in a tough individual matchup.

James Harden Produces 19 Fourth-Quarter Points Monday Night

Houston Rockets guard James Harden was cold as ice at the start of Monday's matchup against the Pelicans, but he ended it in great scoring form, getting 19 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter. He had another rough night from downtown with a 3-for-11 record, but he shot a very solid 13-for-25 overall from the field and 10-for-14 at the line. Harden also produced nine assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 38 minutes on the floor. Harden is hitting barely 40 percent of his shots from the field, but he's still averaging 37.3 points for the year. He'll face the Clippers next on Wednesday at home. The Beard is shooting just 32.6 percent at the Toyota Center this season.

Kawhi Leonard Struggles On Offensive End Versus Former Team

Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard had the Raptors throw everything they could at him on the defensive end, but his club still managed to squeeze out the 98-88 win. Leonard connected on just two of 11 shooting to score 12 points as the Raptors were constantly swarming the Finals' MVP that led him to cough the ball up nine times. Leonard just missed out on triple-double as he added 11 rebounds, nine assists with three steals. The Clippers once again have a back-to-back set this week (Wednesday and Thursday) and we can assume at this point that he will sit one of those games out.
