K. Kuzma - SF
Kuzma registered 29 points (10-22 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 40 minutes in the Lakers' 111-106 win over the Kings on Sunday.
Kuzma exploded in the third quarter, going 7-for-8 from the field, including 4-for-5 from three-point range, to tally 21 of his points. It marked the fourth 20-point quarter for Kuzma this season and provided the Lakers with enough cushion to eventually hang on for the win. The second-year pro's scoring total paced the Lakers for the night and served as his highest since Feb 10 against the 76ers. Factoring in Sunday's production, Kuzma is sporting solid averages of 16.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists across 35.2 minutes in 10 March contests.

L. James - SF
James (knee) supplied 29 points (9-22 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and one block across 35 minutes in the Lakers' 111-106 win over the Kings on Sunday.
James overcame some minor knee soreness to produce yet another triple-double, posting 12 points and three assists in the final period to help preserve the victory. James continues logging a normal allotment of minutes for the most part when he does take the floor, which should remain the plan for what remains of the season. The future Hall of Famer has scored 25 points or more in 11 straight games dating back to Feb. 27, and he's generated a double-double at minimum in six of 10 March contests.

B. Hield - SG
Hield furnished 18 points (6-21 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes in the Kings' 111-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Hield checked in as the Kings' top scorer on the first unit and second highest overall despite his 28.6 percent success rate from the floor. The 26-year-old remained relatively hot from distance, however, as he posted better than 40.0 percent shooting from behind the arc for the fourth consecutive contest. Hield has now taken at least 20 shot attempts overall in three straight games as well, a level of usage that would suit fantasy owners well down the stretch should it persist.
Added 5:44 am (EST)
M. Bagley III - PF
Bagley totaled 25 points (10-19 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-8 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes in the Kings' 111-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Bagley's scoring and rebounding totals both led the Kings for the night, with the performance serving as his third straight double-double. The 20-year-old bounced back nicely from a rare shooting clunker (38.5 percent) versus the Suns on Saturday night, and he even had a chance to play some center down the stretch in addition to his usual power forward spot. Bagley projects as a valued asset in the fantasy postseason across all formats and next faces the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Added 5:38 am (EST)
D. House - SG
House had 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 win over the Pelicans.
House has reached double figures in seven of his last nine appearances, and he has also drained at least three treys in seven of the last nine as well. The 25-year-old forward is proving to be a very valuable wing player for the Rockets, and he even earned a team-high minute total in this blowout victory.
Added 2:36 am (EST)
K. Faried - PF
Faried racked up 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 24 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 win over the Pelicans.
Faried logged his 12th double-double through 22 appearances with the Rockets, bringing his season total to 14 through 34 games in 2018-19. The last time Faried accumulated at least that many double-doubles was back in 2015-16 (21 in 67 games), so it's safe to say his career has been revitalized since arriving in Houston.
Added 2:31 am (EST)
E. Gordon - SG
Gordon produced 18 points (6-12 FG, 6-11 3Pt), two assists, two blocks, and one steal in 21 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 win over the Pelicans.
Gordon was dynamite from beyond the arc, torching his old team despite seeing limited minutes in the lopsided victory. With the Rockets still fighting for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, Gordon and the rest of the regulars can be expected to see a full load of minutes during Tuesday's tilt versus the Bucks.
Added 2:27 am (EST)
C. Paul - PG
Paul pitched in 10 points (4-12 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 13 assists, five steals, and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 win over the Pelicans.
Paul was inefficient as a scorer but posted a double-double and snagged at least five steals for the third time through 51 appearances this season. He has already recorded more double-doubles here in 2018-19 (18) than he did in 58 tilts last season (14), but these are still by far the two lowest totals of his entire career.
