The final score was 122-115 and there was plenty of fantasy points to go around. The Atlanta Hawks may have lost in real life although they covered the 8.0-point spread and there were no losers for fantasy purposes. Trae Young ($9,700) had a ridiculous 42-point triple-double. He scored 80.25 DKFP and wasn’t even the best fantasy performer in the game.

James Harden ($12,800) had a triple-double of his own and narrowly edged Young by finishing with 81 DKFP. Harden needed to carry the Houston Rockets’ offense since Russell Westbrook was resting. Even without Russ, he had a ton of help from Clint Capela ($7,800) who dominated the Hawks’ frontcourt. Capela pulled down 22 rebounds and scored 58.5 DKFP. P.J. Tucker ($4,000) chipped in with 17 rebounds and scored 37.75 DKFP as the top value play in this high-scoring game.
