Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin
Stephen Curry passed Jason Terry for the third most 3-pointers in NBA history in Friday’s blowout win over the Bulls, scoring 28 points with eight assists, five rebounds and five triples in 27 minutes. With 2,283 triples, Curry will now have his sights on Ray Allen (2,973) and Reggie Miller (2,560). He’s been the third most valuable player in standard leagues on a per-game basis in standard leagues and we like his chances of remaining in the top five for the duration of the season, even with DeMarcus Cousins set to debut on Jan. 18.
Dallas Mavericks Fantasy Spin
Dennis Smith Jr. (mid-back tightness) is questionable for Sunday against the Warriors. He did not even travel for Friday, and coach Rick Carlisle didn’t sound too encouraged about DSJ being ready soon. If he can return, Smith Jr. would have a higher floor for stat output with J.J. Barea out. If he can’t go, Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson would be options with Kleber offering the higher upside.
