Teague scored 25 points in the Hawks' 104-96 win over Houston on Tuesday.

Analysis: Teague's performance came after he was given the day off for Saturday's 93-91 win at Miami. Further breaks wouldn't be too surprising since the Hawks own the best record in the NBA, and lead the Eastern Conference by 10 games on Atlantic Division-leading Toronto.
3/4/2015 Jason Terry, G
Terry had a season-high 21 points in the Rockets' 104-96 loss at Atlanta on Tuesday.

Analysis: Despite his performance against the league-leading Hawks, Terry has no fantasy value with an average of 7.2 points on the season.
