Holiday came off the bench and scored 20 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding five rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 114-113 win over the 76ers. Holiday ended the best season of his four-year career with his highest scoring game of 2016-17. Holiday saw some extra run over the final nine games, averaging 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.3 threes in 25.8 minutes. Holiday will be free agent this summer.
Holiday will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the 76ers. Holiday drew the start on Sunday against the Raptors, as Carmelo Anthony was sitting out. He ended up finishing with 10 points, five rebounds, five assist, one block and one steal across 40 minutes. While Anthony was fully expected to sit out the finale on Wednesday, he has surprisingly been activated and will start as usual, sending Holiday to the bench. Holiday likely won't come anywhere near the 40 minutes he saw Sunday, so look for a decrease in production across the board.
Holiday finished with 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block in 40 minutes during Sunday's 110-97 loss to the Raptors. Holiday is set to become a free agent this summer, and with most of the team's top players either injured or resting, the Knicks have been giving him lots of time lately. Holiday has scored in double digits during four straight contests while contributing modest numbers in most categories, and he seems likely to receive decent minutes once again in Wednesday's regular season finale versus the 76ers.
Holiday will get the starting nod at shooting guard for Friday's game against the Grizzlies, Al Iannazzone of News Day Sports reports. The Knicks are without a majority of their rotational players, so Holiday should get an opportunity to produce Friday. He is coming off an outing in which he posted 16 points, five rebounds, an assist, and two triples across 33 minutes. He figures to get another healthy workload against the Grizzlies.
Holiday finished with 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes during Thursday's 106-103 loss to the Wizards. Though he only sees 19.5 minutes per game off the Knicks' bench, Holiday has proven to be capable of double-digit scoring at an efficient clip. He's averaging a career-high 7.3 point per game this season while also hitting career highs in both field-goal (43.1) and three-point (35.5) percentages. While the 28-year-old guard likely shouldn't crack too many fantasy rosters, he could make for an optional punt play in DFS if he's in line for a 30-plus-minute workload.
