10/24/2017 Matthew Dellavedova, Mil, G
Matthew Dellavedova scored two points Monday, going 1 of 3 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94. Dellavedova pulled down three rebounds and had nine assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +17 in his 33:01 on the floor.

Analysis: Dellavedova drew the start with Malcolm Brogdon out with a sprained ankle and put up a nice number in the assist column, though most of his other stats have been lacking thus far. The Australian is 3 of 13 from the field while scoring a mere seven points over his last three games.
10/24/2017 Tony Snell, Mil, G-F
Tony Snell scored 13 points Monday on 4-of-8 shooting as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94. Snell grabbed two rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +22 in his 37:24 of playing time. He added two steals.
10/24/2017 Mirza Teletovic, Mil, F
Mirza Teletovic scored 15 points Monday on 5-of-10 shooting as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94. Teletovic grabbed five rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of 0 in his 23:44 of playing time. Teletovic went 5 of 9 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The reserve stretch four has gone 8 of 13 from beyond the arc over his last two games and could be a sneaky source of 3-pointers. Teletovic still doesn't see enough playing time to be anything more than a two-category specialist, however.
10/24/2017 Giannis Antetokounmpo, Mil, F
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points Monday, going 13 of 21 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94. Antetokounmpo pulled down 14 rebounds and dished out six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 39:18 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal.

Analysis: Antetokounmpo's unstoppable season-opening run continues, with Monday's effort actually the lowest-scoring one of his four-game tear. Averaging an astounding 36.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.3 steals so far, it goes without saying he should be in your fantasy lineup.
10/24/2017 Thon Maker, Mil, F-C
Thon Maker scored six points Monday, going 2 of 7 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94. Maker grabbed one rebound and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 15:30 on the floor. He added three steals. Maker went 2 of 6 from 3-point range.
10/24/2017 Dwight Howard, Cha, F-C
Dwight Howard scored eight points Monday on 4-of-6 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Howard pulled down 22 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 34:06 of playing time. He added four blocks.

Analysis: Despite finishing just shy of a third straight double-double to begin the season, Howard has been cleaning the glass at a rate of 17.3 rebounds per game. On the negative side, the 31-year-old is a woeful 4 of 19 from the foul line after misfiring on all nine of his free throw attempts Monday.
10/24/2017 Marvin Williams, Cha, F
Marvin Williams scored nine points Monday, going 3 of 10 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Williams did not grab a rebound but had an assist, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 28:00 of playing time. He added two steals. Williams went 2 of 5 from 3-point range.
10/24/2017 Kemba Walker, Cha, PG
Kemba Walker scored 15 points Monday on 6-of-15 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Walker pulled down two rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 34:06 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Walker went 1 of 6 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Walker found Milwaukee's tough defense more challenging after he totaled 50 points against Detroit and Atlanta in the Hornets' first two games. Charlotte's franchise guard is off to a slower start in the steals department, though, as he's nabbed just two over the three games.
10/24/2017 Jeremy Lamb, Cha, G-F
Jeremy Lamb scored 17 points Monday, going 5 of 17 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Lamb pulled down nine rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -18 in his 34:16 of playing time. Lamb went 1 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Lamb has been very consistent in the scoring department so far, tallying 15, 15 and 17 points in the season's first three games as he continues to start in place of the injured Nicolas Batum. Unfortunately, he's also been that way in the 3-point category, having gone 1 of 13 from behind the arc so far.
10/24/2017 Johnny O'Bryant III, Cha, PF
Johnny O'Bryant III scored 14 points Monday on 4-of-7 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. O'Bryant III grabbed four rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 13:54 of playing time. He added one block.
10/24/2017 Treveon Graham, Cha, G-F
Treveon Graham scored four points Monday, going 2 of 3 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Graham pulled down one rebound and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 20:00 of playing time.
10/24/2017 Dwayne Bacon, Cha, SG
Dwayne Bacon scored five points Monday on 2-of-6 shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Bacon pulled down four rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 24:23 of playing time.
10/24/2017 Malik Monk, Cha, SG
Malik Monk scored four points Monday, going 1 of 6 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Monk grabbed one rebound and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 17:34 on the floor.

Analysis: Monk is finding the NBA to be quite a bit harder than the SEC. The former Kentucky star is 4 of 22 from the field while scoring a combined 13 points through his first three pro games. With Michael Kidd-Gilchrist having returned to the team, the rookie may soon find his minutes reduced.
10/24/2017 Frank Kaminsky, Cha, F-C
Frank Kaminsky scored 18 points Monday, going 6 of 8 from the field, as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-94. Kaminsky grabbed five rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -8 in his 33:41 of playing time. Kaminsky went 3 of 4 from behind the arc.

Analysis: After turning in a dud in the season opener, Kaminsky has bounced back by compiling 39 points, 11 rebounds and five assists over the last two games. The versatile big man has been shooting it well during that stretch, hitting 5 of 9 attempts from 3-point distance.
10/24/2017 Manu Ginobili, SA, G-F
Manu Ginobili scored nine points Monday on 4-of-8 shooting as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Ginobili pulled down two rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 20:55 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Ginobili went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
10/24/2017 Pau Gasol, SA, F-C
Pau Gasol scored one point Monday, going 0 of 6 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs topped the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Gasol pulled down seven rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 22:00 of playing time. He added three blocks.

Analysis: Gasol may be three years younger than the 40-year-old Manu Ginobili, but he's looked like that oldest player on the Spurs' roster in the early going. The declining center is 6 for 22 from the field while failing to score more than 10 points in any of the first three games. He is still consistently contributing as a rebounder, passer and shot-blocker, but clearly isn't the point-producer he once was.
10/24/2017 Rudy Gay, SA, F
Rudy Gay scored 11 points Monday, going 5 of 8 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs topped the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Gay pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 21:55 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. Gay went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
10/24/2017 LaMarcus Aldridge, SA, F-C
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 20 points Monday, going 7 of 16 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Aldridge grabbed eight rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 36:17 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.

Analysis: Aldridge continues to carry the Spurs offensively in Kawhi Leonard's absence, having averaged 24.3 points and 9.3 rebounds during the club's 3-0 start. Looking rejuvenated by a new season and recent contract extension, the five-time All-Star appears ready to atone for a pair of slightly disappointing seasons to begin his San Antonio tenure.
10/24/2017 Danny Green, SA, G-F
Danny Green scored 17 points Monday on 6-of-15 shooting as the San Antonio Spurs topped the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Green grabbed eight rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +15 in his 33:54 of playing time. He added five blocks. Green went 3 of 8 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The five blocks matched a career high for Green, who's been playing a ton of minutes with Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker sidelined and is averaging a solid 14.7 points, 5 rebounds and 2.3 blocks so far. Chances are he won't sustain that high rate of production, but he's certainly worth using right now.
10/24/2017 Patty Mills, SA, PG
Patty Mills scored six points Monday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs topped the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Mills did not grab a rebound but dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 20:38 of playing time.
