The NBA has been without the Splash Bros all season. Well, luckily for all of us we’ve got the Bash Bros in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. The Clippers duo bashed the Timberwolves for 88 points in a 124-117 victory on Friday. George dropped a game-high 46, while Kawhi chipped in 42 en route to the win, moving the Clippers to 20-7 on the season. Los Angeles is closing in on their in-division rival the Lakers, who remain in first place in the Western Conference by 3.5 games.

If you were wise enough to stack Kawhi and PG-13 on Friday, it paid off huge in DFS. Kawhi ($9,000) had 57.75 DraftKings fantasy points, while PG ($8,800) scored a season-high 66.75 in the win. With Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley both sidelined due to injury, Kawhi and George had usage rates well above 40%.

Now heading into Saturday agains the Bulls, we may see Leonard sit to rest on the second of a back-to-back, so if Lou Will and Pat Bev are both out again, well, PG-13 could be in store for a huge night. Stay tuned.
