Bojan Bogdanovic Posts 23 Points In Saturday's Win
Utah Jazz small forward Bojan Bogdanovic had a nice 23-point outing in Saturday's win over Dallas, shooting 6-for-16 from the field and 4-for-10 from downtown. He stayed perfect at the line with seven attempts but sadly didn't do much else in 35 minutes. Bogdanovic is usually good for a pair of dimes and a few boards every game, but it was just one of those days for him this time. He's enjoying a very good month offensively so far, notching 22 points per game on close to 50 percent shooting, and the next matchup against the Rockets is a tasty one, as only the Raptors have a worse defensive record against small forwards.

Donovan Mitchell Leads Jazz To Victory Versus Mavs
Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell made a number of key plays to finish off the Mavericks on Saturday, recording a team-high 25 points on 9-for-25 shooting in a 112-107 win. His overall efficiency was poor, but the Louisville product produced a big performance from downtown with 5-for-11 shooting. He also racked up eight rebounds, five assists and two steals with five turnovers. Mitchell always seems to get his points no matter what and it's good to see him fill the stat sheet in other areas as well. He looks set for another productive night on Monday against the Rockets, who play with the second-fastest pace in the league.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Packs Stat Sheet With 24-Point Effort
Oklahoma City Thunder point/shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continued his ascension up the fantasy ranks during Fridays win over the Atlanta Hawks, taking advantage of the increased tempo to load up his stat sheet. While he shot 7-for-16 from the field, he attempted a career-high 13 free throws, which led to 24 points. He tossed in six assists, three rebounds and three blocks across his game-high 37 minutes. Having already recorded four of his five double-doubles this season in January, Gilgeous-Alexander has dropped at least 20 points in nine of 13 contests this month. He will be back in action Saturday against Minnesota, whom he logged his first career triple-double against on Jan. 13.
