Kyle Kuzma matched his career-high seven 3-pointers during a 138-128 overtime victory over the Thunder on Thursday, finishing with 32 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and four turnovers.

Not bad against the NBA's best defense, and his three steals also matched his career-high. Kuzma was slumping over his previous three games despite two easy matchups against the Bulls and Cavs, so this was unexpected. LeBron James (groin) is set to start practicing next week, but he doesn't have a timetable to return just yet. With the Rockets on the horizon for Saturday, Kuzma could keep it going with another strong performance.

Steven Adams double-doubled on Thursday, scoring 17 points (6-of-9 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with 15 rebounds, one assist and four steals in 41 minutes against the Lakers.

Adams notched his 19th double-double of the season, which is already the second most in a single season of his career. He's posting top-30 value in 9-category leagues over the last two weeks, averaging 14.6 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game in the span. Adams is just behind Anthony Davis for second place among centers in steals for the season.

Brandon Ingram handed out a career-high 11 assists against the Thunder on Thursday, making 1-of-9 from the field for eight points with five rebounds, one block and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

His first make from the field did not come until there were 32 seconds left in OT with Ingram making a wide-open dunk. Besides the dimes, another positive is he made all six from the line as he continues to hang around 60 FT% this season. Ingram's stats should be above his expectations while LeBron James is out as he continues to play minutes in the upper 30s. He'll be a DFS option, but his nine-cat value is still not where it needs to be.

Paul George scored 27 points (9-of-19 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 44 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

George did almost all of his damage in the first three quarters of this one, scoring 26 of his 27 points in that time frame. He didn't attempt any shots in the fourth quarter and missed all five of his shots in the overtime period. Outside of that, PG matched his season-high in assists and swiped at least two steals for the fourth straight game. He continues to put up first round value in 9-category formats.

Josh Hart bounced back on Thursday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one block, three steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Thunder.

He absolutely needed a good game and he came through here. Hart will have his offensive slumps, but more often than not he'll be doing more in the non-scoring departments. If he was dropped, it makes sense to pick him up in standard leagues with likely at least a few more games before LeBron James (groin) is back.

Lonzo Ball turned in a well-round game against the Thunder on Thursday, scoring 18 points with six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He had a dumb foul at the end of regulation as he fouled Russell Westbrook on a three. The rotation change for Ball seems to be working out with this game and a 19-point, six-dime game on Tuesday. Ball also mentioned there's more pressure on him while LeBron James (groin) is out, so he could have a few more strong outings. He's peaking now, so he could be a bit of a sell-high player before the Lakers start getting guys back.

Terrance Ferguson got hot against the Lakers, scoring 21 points (6-of-13 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs) with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes on Thursday.

This was the second time in the last eight days that Ferguson exploded for 21 points with at least six triples. He continues to start for the Thunder, but his low-usage role will make for many inconsistent outings. Ferguson is more of a streamer than an add at this point.

Ivica Zubac dominated against the Thunder on Thursday, making 12-of-14 from the field for a career-high 26 points with 12 rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

The one they call Zupac wasn't going platinum, he was going double-uranium in this win. Zubac had a +35 plus/minus and he played the final 20 minutes excluding a few seconds for situational subs. He played just eight minutes in the last game after coach Luke Walton made a switch to Tyson Chandler to start, but this outstanding game could be enough for Walton to make another switch -- Chandler also tweaked his hand. If Zu starts, he would get a potential dream matchup against the Rockets on Saturday after Jarrett Allen went for 20 and 24 against Houston on Wednesday. Zubac might not stick, but it's hard to leave him on the wire after this strong game, especially when his coach is searching for answers at the five. Fantasy owners can picture Zubac rollin' to the rim and may want to get around to picking him up in standard leagues.
