J. Nurkic - C
Nurkic delivered 22 points (8-17 FG, 6-8 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, six blocks, and one steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.
Nurkic matched his career high block total, swatting six shots for the second time in the last six games. He has been providing extremely well-rounded stat lines lately, with his assist and block numbers in particular standing out. Nurkic has recorded at least five blocks in four of 11 games here in January, this after swatting five or more blocks just six times through his first 275 career games. Meanwhile, Nurkic's assist average has increased with each passing month this season, and he has now handed out a whopping 39 dimes across the last six tilts.

J. Layman - SF
Layman finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.
Layman has reached double figures in scoring in five straight games. He went off during Friday's matchup with the Pelicans despite Maurice Harkless re-claiming his starting spot in his return from injury, posting 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt) and one board in 18 minutes, highlighted by an incredible second quarter eruption. Layman is likely to cool off (32-of-49 from the field over the last five) but seems to be earning the confidence of coach Terry Stotts.

D. Lillard - PG
Lillard collected 26 points (10-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, and eight assists in 36 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.
Lillard finished two boards and two assists shy of a triple-double, torching the Jazz with a well-rounded stat line. He is maintaining a career-high field-goal percentage while providing his usual damage in the points and dimes departments.
Added 1:33 am (EST)
M. Harkless - SF
Harkless had six points (3-3 FG), one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block in 18 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.
Harkless has combined to earn 39 minutes during his first two tilts back in the lineup after missing six of the previous seven with a knee injury. He has been efficient offensively, combining to score 18 points on nine field-goal attempts, albeit in his usual limited role. Harkless continues to hold down the fort as the starting small forward, but he's only a viable option in deeper leagues.
Added 1:27 am (EST)
R. O'Neale - SF
O'Neale had 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block in 37 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.
O'Neale drew his sixth straight start and scored in double figures for the third consecutive contest. Ricky Rubio (hamstring) returned to the lineup following a six-game absence, but the veteran point guard came off the bench in this one. It's unclear if Rubio will re-join the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets, or whether coach Quin Snyder will stick with what has been working lately. Regardless, O'Neale has been extremely steady during this recent stretch of games, and he may have carved out a considerable role for himself going forward.
Added 1:21 am (EST)
R. Gobert - C
Gobert registered 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, and three assists in 33 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Gobert came off the bench because he didn't get on the court quick enough to start the game, but he replaced Jae Crowder 12 seconds into the first quarter. It was a fairly quiet line for Gobert, at least compared to the sensational box score stats he has been delivering lately. Overall, he is enjoying a breakout campaign, maintaining career-high per-game averages in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals.
Added 1:07 am (EST)
D. Mitchell - SG
Mitchell produced 36 points (12-28 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 10-12 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Mitchell was remarkable once again, and he has scored at least 30 points in four of the last seven games. He had scored 30 points or more four times through his first 37 appearances this season, and this recent stretch of solid play has helped the Jazz climb back into the playoff picture. Ricky Rubio returned to the lineup following a six-game absence with a strained hamstring, but the veteran point guard came off the bench in this one. It's unclear whether Mitchell's recent rise taking place without Rubio is merely a coincidence, is based on improved offensive spacing, or simply the result of having more time with the ball in his hands. Nevertheless, Mitchell will look to keep the momentum rolling in the right direction during Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets.
Added 12:55 am (EST)
R. Rubio - PG
Rubio supplied 12 points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 14 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Rubio missed the last six games with a strained hamstring and operated in a reserve role in his return to the lineup. Donovan Mitchell seemed to hit his stride while Rubio was sidelined, scoring 30-plus points in three of those six tilts while scoring 28 twice and 24 in 26 minutes during Friday's blowout win over the Cavaliers. Mitchell had scored at least 30 points only four times this season prior to this recent stretch of games, and he appears to be benefitting from the improved offensive spacing minus Rubio. Nevertheless, it's entirely possible Rubio will re-join the starting lineup soon and that Mitchell will continue to cook alongside him.
