11/21/2017 Cedi Osman, Cle, SF
Cedi Osman scored seven points Monday, going 2 of 3 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Detroit Pistons 116-88. Osman grabbed four rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 13:47 of playing time. He added one block. Osman went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Jae Crowder, Cle, F
Jae Crowder scored 18 points Monday on 5-of-11 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Detroit Pistons 116-88. Crowder pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +23 in his 25:43 on the floor. Crowder went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.

Analysis: It's a season-high scoring output for Crowder, who probably could be a 15-point-a-night player on many teams. He's stuck as the last option in Cleveland's offensive-minded starting unit, however, so use him at your own risk. The versatile forward has scored in double figures in just seven of the season's first 17 games and is averaging a pedestrian 3.8 rebounds as well.
11/21/2017 Langston Galloway, Det, G
Langston Galloway scored eight points Monday, going 3 of 8 from the field, as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Galloway pulled down one rebound and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 20:39 on the floor. Galloway went 2 of 5 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Tobias Harris, Det, F
Tobias Harris scored 11 points Monday on 4-of-10 shooting as the Detroit Pistons lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Harris pulled down five rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -27 in his 27:50 on the floor. Harris went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Harris tied a season low for points and didn't show his usual aggressiveness in the second night of a back-to-back. The talented forward's scoring numbers have been a bit down lately, though he's still knocking down 3-pointers with precision. He's now 28 of 56 on trey attempts over his last nine games.
11/21/2017 Eric Moreland, Det, PF
Eric Moreland scored six points Monday, going 3 of 4 from the field, as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Moreland grabbed seven rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 21:07 on the floor. He added two blocks.
11/21/2017 Andre Drummond, Det, F-C
Andre Drummond scored eight points Monday, going 3 of 7 from the field, as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Drummond pulled down eight rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -19 in his 24:56 of playing time. He added one steal.

Analysis: The lopsided score and a surprisingly solid Cleveland defense combined to render Drummond without a double-double for only the second time in his past 10 games. Though the rebounding demon has usually been money for fantasy players this season, turnovers do remain a concern. He had six on Monday and now has 30 over his last six contests.
11/21/2017 Stanley Johnson, Det, G-F
Stanley Johnson scored 10 points Monday on 4-of-7 shooting as the Detroit Pistons lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Johnson pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -29 in his 28:23 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Johnson went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Henry Ellenson, Det, PF
Henry Ellenson scored six points Monday, going 2 of 5 from the field, as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Ellenson grabbed two rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +11 in his 12:00 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Ellenson went 2 of 3 from behind the arc.
11/21/2017 Luke Kennard, Det, SG
Luke Kennard scored five points Monday on 2-of-8 shooting as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Kennard pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 16:34 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Kennard went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Anthony Tolliver, Det, F
Anthony Tolliver scored six points Monday on 2-of-3 shooting as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Tolliver grabbed one rebound and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -21 in his 13:10 on the floor. Tolliver went 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Ish Smith, Det, PG
Ish Smith scored three points Monday on 1-of-6 shooting as the Detroit Pistons lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Smith did not grab a rebound but dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -17 in his 16:57 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
11/20/2017 Wilson Chandler, Den, G-F
Wilson Chandler scored 17 points Sunday, going 5 of 10 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 127-109. Chandler grabbed four rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -14 in his 26:32 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. Chandler went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Chandler's resurgence continues, as he's shooting 54.1 percent while averaging 14.8 points and six rebounds over a run of four consecutive double figure scoring performances. The veteran forward averaged just 7.7 points and four boards through 12 games leading up to this surge.
11/20/2017 Brook Lopez, LAL, C
Brook Lopez scored 21 points Sunday on 9-of-14 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Lopez pulled down three rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 22:24 of playing time. He added two blocks. Lopez went 3 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Lopez has bounced back from Wednesday's 3-of-12, 8-point dud against Philadelphia by amassing 40 points on 63 percent shooting over his last two outings. Though one of the weaker rebounding centers around, the 29-year-old is averaging 18 points and two blocks during a 10-game stretch in which he's 18 of 47 (38.3 percent) from beyond the arc.
11/20/2017 Jordan Clarkson, LAL, G
Jordan Clarkson scored 18 points Sunday on 7-of-12 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Clarkson grabbed three rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 24:09 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.

Analysis: Clarkson was held to a season-low four points Friday against Phoenix, but he's still averaging 16.8 over his last four games from his sixth-man role. The combo guard has been a consistent source of scoring, recording double-figure points in 14 of the season's first 17 games, but hasn't made a significant impact in any other fantasy categories.
11/20/2017 Josh Hart, LAL, SG
Josh Hart scored three points Sunday, going 1 of 2 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Hart pulled down two rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +4 in his 12:10 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
11/20/2017 Corey Brewer, LAL, G-F
Corey Brewer scored three points Sunday on 1-of-3 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Brewer pulled down one rebound and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 14:54 of playing time. He tacked on four steals.
11/20/2017 Julius Randle, LAL, F-C
Julius Randle scored 24 points Sunday, going 11 of 18 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Randle pulled down seven rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +27 in his 31:44 of playing time. Randle went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Randle entered Sunday's matchup kind of cold, having averaged a pedestrian 9.7 points on 35.5 percent shooting over his previous three games, but racked up 17 on 8-of-12 shooting during a monster first half en route to a season high. The physical forward is quite capable of more performances like this one, though his minutes tend to vary due to the emergence of rookie Kyle Kuzma.
11/20/2017 Lonzo Ball, LAL, PG
Lonzo Ball scored 11 points Sunday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Ball pulled down 16 rebounds and had 11 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +29 in his 39:54 on the floor. He added two blocks. Ball went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Ball also turned it over just twice while joining Magic Johnson as the only Laker rookies with two triple-doubles in a season. The 20-year-old still isn't shooting particularly well, but he's kept on stuffing the stat sheet with averages of 8.7 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 2.2 steals and one block over his last six games.
11/20/2017 Kyle Kuzma, LAL, F
Kyle Kuzma scored 17 points Sunday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Kuzma pulled down three rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 25:39 on the floor. He added one steal. Kuzma went 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Kuzma saw a little less playing time than usual on a night Julius Randle was dominant, but still put forth a highly efficient outing to continue his strong play during the Lakers' current homestand. The rookie is averaging a terrific 23.7 points and 6.7 rebounds while shooting 51.9 percent from the field and going 6 of 15 on 3-pointers in three games on the residency.
11/20/2017 Brandon Ingram, LAL, G-F
Brandon Ingram scored 13 points Sunday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Ingram grabbed five rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 28:49 of playing time. Ingram went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
