Serge Ibaka Headshot

Ibaka scored 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 112-106 win over the Trail Blazers.

It's his first double-double as a Raptor, but just his ninth of the season, highlighting how much Ibaka was off his game in Orlando. The 27-year-old could well record more double-doubles down the stretch for Toronto than he did in 56 games for the Magic.
4:59 am (EST)
DeMar DeRozan Headshot

DeRozan scored 33 points (9-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 15-16 FT) while adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 36 minutes during Sunday's 112-106 win over the Trail Blazers.

It's the 24th time this season that DeRozan has scored 30 or more points. He's been especially impressive the last two games with Kyle Lowry (wrist) sidelined, scoring a combined 76 points while going 27-for-28 from the free throw line.
4:55 am (EST)
Moe Harkless Headshot

Harkless scored 18 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding five rebounds, two steals and a block in 36 minutes during Sunday's 112-106 loss to the Raptors.

The 23-year-old has started returning to the form he showed in late November, averaging 13.8 points, 6.0 boards, 1.8 three-pointers, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks over his last four games. Harkless figures to continue seeing big minutes with Evan Turner (hand) sidelined for at least another couple of weeks, and his ability to contribute in multiple categories could make him a useful addition to your fantasy roster despite his modest numbers on the season.
4:47 am (EST)
Damian Lillard Headshot

Lillard scored 28 points (10-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding eight assists, six rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes during Sunday's 112-106 loss to the Raptors.

He extended his streak of games with at least one three-pointer to 38, and scored at least 20 points for the seventh time in the eight February games. Lillard's efforts lately have largely been in vain, however, as the Blazers fell to 2-6 on the month despite him averaging 24.3 points, 6.3 boards, 5.4 assists and 3.0 three-pointers per game.
4:41 am (EST)
Bojan Bogdanovic Headshot

Bogdanovic scored 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding a rebound, an assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 102-92 loss to the Jazz.

His second game in a Wizards uniform was more productive than his first as Bogdanovic saw big minutes, thanks mainly to being the only Washington player aside from John Wall and Bradley Beal who seemed capable of making a shot. The trio of guards shot 52.3 percent (23-for-44) between them from the floor, but the rest of the roster was a woeful 32.6 percent (14-for-43).
4:29 am (EST)
Bradley Beal Headshot

Beal scored 22 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding four assists and three rebounds in 34 minutes during Sunday's 102-92 loss to the Jazz.

As is usually the case in Wizard losses, Beal and John Wall got very little help from their teammates, as the duo combined for 45 points, but only one other Washington player (newcomer Bojan Bogdanovic) even managed double digits. Beal is enjoying his best month of the season, averaging 25.6 points, 3.8 assists, 3.8 three-pointers, 3.3 boards and 1.0 steals in nine February games.
4:25 am (EST)
John Wall Headshot

Wall scored 23 points (9-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding 11 assists, four steals and three rebounds in 37 minutes during Sunday's 102-92 loss to the Jazz.

It was his 11th straight double-double, and 37th of the season. The point guard's nine turnovers certainly didn't help matters, but Wall and his backcourt mate Bradley Beal got very little help from the rest of the Wizards in this one, scoring 45 of the team's 92 points.
4:20 am (EST)
George Hill Headshot

Hill scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding six assists, three rebounds, a steal and a block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 102-92 win over the Wizards.

While Gordon Hayward and Ruby Gobert remain the dominant duo for the Jazz, Hill has quietly stepped up his game in February, scoring at least 19 points in seven of his last eight games while averaging 19.1 points, 3.6 assists, 2.9 three-pointers, 2.4 boards and 1.3 steals over that stretch.
4:16 am (EST)
Rudy Gobert Headshot

Gobert scored 15 points (2-5 FG, 11-14 FT) while adding 20 rebounds, four blocks, three assists and a steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 102-92 win over the Wizards.

It's the second time this season Gobert has grabbed 20 or more boards, and he's recorded double-digit boards in an incredible 42 of his last 44 games, pushing him into the top five in the league in rebounds per game.
4:12 am (EST)
Gordon Hayward Headshot

Hayward scored 30 points (11-22 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-8 FT) while adding nine rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes during Sunday's 102-92 win over the Wizards.

It was an impressive road win for the Jazz, and Hayward was no less impressive in scoring 30 or more points for the fifth time in his last 10 games. February has been his best month of the season by far, seeing him average 26.2 points, 5.3 boards, 3.5 assists and 2.4 three-pointers per game.
