by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Walker scored 26 points (8-17 FG, 6-9 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with two rebounds and six assists over 35 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 win over the Clippers.

Off to a career-high pace of 23.4 points per game entering Saturday, Walker further padded his scoring numbers by sinking a season-high six three-pointers against the Clippers. In addition, the Charlotte guard surpassed the 20 point mark for the fifth consecutive game. This level of consistent scoring has led Walker to become the focal point of the Hornets' offense at this early stage of the season. Also, the return of Nicolas Batum has not affected Walker as the guard has scored 20, 47, and 26 points in the three games since Batum's return.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Scores 21 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Embiid scored 21 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3PT, 6-8 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, three assists and one block over 33 minutes in Saturday's 124-116 loss to Golden State.

Following up his stellar performance against the Lakers on Wednesday, Embiid turned in a solid performance, collecting at least 20 points for the ninth time this season. The center's Saturday stat line pales in comparison to his one of a kind stat line of 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks. However, Embiid is a consistent scorer (22.8 points) and rebounder (10.29 rebounds) who is on the verge of breaking out on any given night.


Warriors' Kevin Durant: Scored 27 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Durant scored 27 points (11-20 FG, 1-6 3PT, 4-6 FT) to go along with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks over 32 minutes in Saturday's 124-116 win over Philadelphia.

For the seventh consecutive game, Durant scored at least 21 points. In fact, the Golden State forward has only dipped below 20 points once in 15 games this season. Durant, averaging 24.0 points in his six games prior to Saturday, is as consistent of a scorer as they come.


76ers' Ben Simmons: Collects tenth double-double
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Simmons scored 23 points (11-15 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, 12 assists and one steal over 37 minutes in Saturday's 124-116 loss to Golden State.

Collecting his tenth double-double in his 15th career game, Simmons did the majority of his damage to the Warriors' defense in the first half. Early on in the contest, the guard drove to the hoop at will. However, he was kept largely at bay for most of the second half from an offensive perspective, scoring 8 of his 23 points. In addition, Simmons turned in a dynamic, overall performance, collecting a career-high 12 assists.


Warriors' Stephen Curry: Scores 35 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Curry scored 35 points (11-22 FG, 4-10 3PT, 9-9 FT) to go along with five rebounds, five assists and one block over 34 minutes in Saturday's 124-116 win over Philadelphia.

Initially, Curry struggled mightily with his shot, going 5-of-14 from the floor and 0-of-4 from three-point range for a total of 15 points in the first half. However, the Golden State guard made six out of his next seven shots to run his point total up to 35 by the end of the third quarter. Curry's resiliency was the key factor in turning around what was shaping up to an uncharacteristically poor three-point shooting night, making 4-of-6 three-pointers in the second half.


76ers' Robert Covington: Sinks five three-pointers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Covington scored 20 points (6-14 FG, 5-12 3PT, 3-3 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block over 36 minutes in Saturday's 124-116 loss to Golden State.

Covington's four three-pointers in the first quarter kickstarted Philadelphia's 74 point first half. The forward, who shot 49.5 percent from beyond the arc entering Saturday, has drastically improved from his 33.3 percent average from 2016-17. However, Covington's early long range success did not carry over against Golden State, making 1-of-8 attempts after the first quarter. However, Covington has long term, added value as a legitimate, long range shooting threat.


Clippers' Blake Griffin: Struggled from the floor in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Griffin scored 19 points (6-17 FG, 2-5 3PT, 5-7 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, four assists and one block over 35 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 loss to Charlotte.

Once again, Griffin struggled from the floor, hitting 35.2 percent from the floor on Saturday. This marks the fifth time in the last six games in which the forward shot 35 percent or below. Through 15 games, Griffin is shooting a career-low 42.3 percent. Griffin will look to turn his shooting woes against New York on Monday.


Clippers' DeAndre Jordan: Collects eighth double-double
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Jordan scored 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 33 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 loss to Charlotte.

One night removed from a 20 point, 22 rebound performance, Jordan turned in another strong rebounding performance against Charlotte. For the Clippers center, a double-digit rebound night has become the routine this season, tallying 12 games of at least 10 rebounds this season. Collecting his eighth double-double, Jordan is a remarkably consistent performer on the boards. Rebounds will always supplement his lack of high-scoring prowess.


Clippers' Lou Williams: Scores team-high 25 points
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11/18/2017) Williams scored 25 points (10-17 FG, 2-6 3PT, 3-6 FT) to go along with two rebounds and four assists over 29 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 loss to Charlotte.

The veteran point guard has been a breath of fresh air from the bench for the Clippers. Including Saturday night's action, Williams has scored at least 20 points in three of his last five games. Outside of Blake Griffin, he has been the driving force behind the Clippers' offense, averaging 17.2 points entering Saturday. With little to no offense surrounding Williams and Griffin, expect Williams to play a substantial role going forward.
