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.
11/21/2017 Avery Bradley, Det, G
Avery Bradley scored nine points Monday on 4-of-9 shooting as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Bradley pulled down two rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -21 in his 27:21 of playing time. Bradley went 1 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The usually pinpoint shooter was off the mark on the second night of a back-to-back, ending a streak of eight straight games with at least 14 points. Bradley is still averaging a strong 19.6 points while making 47.9 percent (23 of 48) of his 3-point tries over his last nine outings, so odds are he'll bounce back Friday at Oklahoma City.
11/21/2017 Reggie Jackson, Det, G
Reggie Jackson scored 10 points Monday on 3-of-7 shooting as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-88. Jackson grabbed one rebound and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of -20 in his 24:17 of playing time. Jackson went 2 of 2 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Jackson barely played in the second half due to the one-sided score, denying him a chance of building off Sunday's strong 16-point, eight-assist effort against Minnesota. The former Oklahoma City point guard still managed to record at least six assists for the seventh time in nine games, and he figures to be highly motivated for Friday's revenge-game scenario against the Thunder.
11/21/2017 Dante Cunningham, NO, F
Dante Cunningham did not score Monday on 0-of-1 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans topped the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107. Cunningham grabbed four rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +19 in his 15:55 of playing time.
11/21/2017 E'Twaun Moore, NO, G-F
E'Twaun Moore scored 12 points Monday on 5-of-9 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107. Moore grabbed one rebound and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 31:17 of playing time. He added two steals. Moore went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Jrue Holiday, NO, G
Jrue Holiday scored 18 points Monday, going 7 of 16 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107. Holiday grabbed four rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -16 in his 33:37 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Holiday went 2 of 7 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Though his 3-point accuracy remains atrocious, Holiday is shooting 51.9 percent overall during a six-game stretch in which he's averaging 17 points and 6.2 assists. He's also taking more shots playing alongside Rajon Rondo, averaging 14.3 field goal attempts in the three games the veteran point guard has started.
11/21/2017 Darius Miller, NO, G-F
Darius Miller scored 11 points Monday, going 4 of 5 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans topped the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107. Miller pulled down seven rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +26 in his 21:30 of playing time. Miller went 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Though still hardly a fantasy linchpin, Miller has been a prime contributor to the Hornets' second unit over the past few weeks. The swingman is averaging 12.8 points over his last four games and is a highly impressive 24 of 40 from beyond the arc in his last nine. He's produced three or more treys in five of those contests.
11/21/2017 DeMarcus Cousins, NO, F-C
DeMarcus Cousins scored 18 points Monday, going 7 of 17 from the field, before being ejected midway through the third quarter of Monday's 114-107 win over the Thunder. Cousins grabbed nine rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -13 in his 26:03 of playing time. He added one block and three steals. Cousins struggled from behind the arc, coming up empty on all five of his attempts.

Analysis: Well, that's one way to keep Cousins from his usual 25 points and double-digit rebound totals. The volatile forward was called for a flagrant 2 foul for swinging his elbow and making contact to the head of Russell Westbrook with five minutes to go in the third. It hasn't been his best of weeks, as he was held to a season-low 14 points while going 0 of 3 from 3-point range Friday against Denver.
11/21/2017 Jameer Nelson, NO, PG
Jameer Nelson scored nine points Monday, going 4 of 5 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107. Nelson grabbed one rebound and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +30 in his 18:14 of playing time. He added one steal. Nelson went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
11/21/2017 Tony Allen, NO, G-F
Tony Allen scored six points Monday, going 3 of 4 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 114-107. Allen pulled down six rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +11 in his 18:21 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
