Adrian Kempe Headshot

Kempe lit the lamp three times on five shots, and added an assist, against the Canadiens in a 5-1 win Wednesday.

With one game, Kempe surpassed his career goal total heading into this outing. Kempe was a first-round pick, and he's a 21-year-old who only had 25 games under his belt heading into this season. That being said, he had zero points and five shots on goal total before this game, and he had been averaging 9:27 per game in ice time.

Damian Lillard Headshot

Lillard recorded 27 points (10-20 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, five rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout win over the Suns.

Lillard was dominant all-around Wednesday. Not only did he score an efficient 27 points, he managed to collect five assists without committing a turnover. He's hardly known for his defense, posting a combined 1.2 steals and blocks last season, but managed to total a combined four steals and blocks as well. Without question, Lillard continues to be one of the best backcourt players in seemingly every fantasy format.

Mike Cammalleri Headshot

Cammalleri picked up two goals and two assists in a 5-1 win over the Canadiens on Wednesday. He also posting a plus-3 rating and had three shots on goal.

This is a huge game for the veteran, but it comes as a surprise. Cammalleri had zero points before this contest, and actually was scratched in Los Angeles' last two games. Clearly there is still a little spark left in the 35-year-old, but it's hard to view this as anything but a fluke given the circumstances.
1:34 am (EST)
Al Montoya Headshot

Montoya gave up five goals on 42 shots in a 5-1 loss to the Kings on Wednesday.

This was Montoya's first start of the season, and at this rate he won't be getting many more. In his previous appearance this year, Montoya gave up two goals on nine shots.
1:29 am (EST)
Jusuf Nurkic Headshot

Nurkic finished with 11 points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and five turnovers across 23 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout victory over the Suns.

While 11 points and 11 rebounds in 23 minutes looks good on the surface, Nurkic was inefficient from the field and committed a handful of turnovers, putting a massive damper on his fantasy production. Overall, this game, while discouraging, will probably be chalked up as an outlier in the long run.
1:29 am (EST)
Jonathan Quick Headshot

Quick made 36 saves on 37 shots in a 5-1 win over the Canadiens on Wednesday.

Montreal has struggled offensively thus far, but the fact remains that Quick now has four wins in five starts. In three of his five starts, Quick has let in one goal or fewer, making him one of the hottest goalies to start the season.
1:27 am (EST)
Jamal Crawford Headshot

Crawford scored ten points with five assists and three rebounds in 24 minutes in Wednesday's loss at San Antonio.

Crawford didn't shoot much in the preseason, so it was encouraging to see him get significant minutes and add offense off the bench. His role could increase as he added a needed offensive spark.
1:24 am (EST)
Terrence Ross Headshot

Ross finished with 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 116-109 win over the Heat.

Ross is often inconsistent, though he flashed his upside Wednesday on both sides of the ball. He shot just 43.1 percent from the field after joining the Magic last season, so while he can get hot, fantasy owners in categorical formats should take note of his deficiencies.
1:24 am (EST)
Clayton Kershaw (L) Headshot

Kershaw will start Game 5 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Thursday, Tyler Kepner of The New York Times reports.

The Dodgers were unable close out the series -- losing 3-2 to the Cubs on Wednesday -- so Kershaw will get the ball for Game 5 on Thursday as he looks to send Los Angeles to its first World Series since 1988. He allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four batters in five innings during his Game 1 start against Chicago.
1:22 am (EST)
Taj Gibson Headshot

Gibson started at power forward and scored six points with four rebounds and three assists over 27 minutes in Wednesday's loss at San Antonio. However, he was just 3-of-11 from the field and was 0-for-2 from three-point range.

Gibson didn't play as much in the second half after missing several shots early in the game. Gibson worked on his three-point shooting in the offseason, but that work didn't pay dividends in the first game of the season. While he's in the starting lineup for his defense, he'll need to shoot better or risk losing minutes.
