John Wall scores season-high 29 points

After posting back-to-back games with 20-plus points and double-digit assists, Wizards point guard John Wall missed repeating that feat by just one assist.

In tonight's win over the Hornets, Wall finished with a season-high 29 points and nine assists.

Over his past three games, Wall is averaging 26.3 points, 11.0 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game.  In addition, it's only the third time in his career that he has scored 20-plus points in three consecutive games.

Without Wall for the first 33 games of the season, the Wizards were 5-28 during that stretch.  Since Wall has returned, the Wizards are three games above .500 (17-14).

Enes Kanter has career-high 23 points, 22 rebounds

Before tonight, Utah's Enes Kanter had only one double-double in his brief two-year NBA career.  And it happened last season.

Not only did Kanter score a career-high 23 points in the 30-point win over the Bobcats, who managed only 68 points, Kanter added a career-high 22 rebounds tonight.

Kanter, the third-overall pick in 2011, played 44 minutes in the blowout.  Other than tonight, however, he has played 20-plus minutes in only five other games this season.

From a fantasy perspective, Kanter is a much better option in dynasty leagues than re-draft formats, but he is currently owned in only four percent of Yahoo! leagues.

Tobias Harris scores a career-high 27 points

Orlando Magic forward Tobias Harris scored a career-high 27 points and had a double-double off the bench in tonight's loss to the Rockets.  Harris had 10 rebounds as well.

It was his fourth game with the Magic and he now has scored in double-digits in all four of those games and is averaging 20 points per contest.

With the Bucks, Harris was averaging only 4.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.

In addition to averaging 20 points per game with the Magic so far, Harris is also averaging 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per game.  Even more amazing, Harris is shooting nearly 70 percent from the field (32-of-46).

If Harris is available in your league (and he's only owned in 24 percent of Yahoo! leagues), he's worth adding in all league formats now.
