Beasley scored 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, and two assists over 23 minutes in Wednesday's 114-81 Game 5 loss to the Warriors. Beasley was the Rockets' only double-digit scorer other than James Harden (35 points) on the evening, but even the forward struggled to get his points, requiring an inefficient 13 shots. Nonetheless, Beasley was something of a silver lining in an otherwise dreadful series for the Rockets, finishing with at least 10 points in each of the last four games. After seemingly washing out of the NBA while opening this season in China, Beasley appears to have revitalized his career upon latching on with the Rockets in March, as he frequently provided quality scoring from the second unit. His achievements could be enough to convince the Rockets to pick up his contract option for the 2016-17 campaign.
Beasley pitched in with 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and a steal over 21 minutes in Thursday's 97-96 Game 3 victory over the Warriors. The veteran forward, who was outstanding in the regular season's latter stages after signing with the Rockets in early March, paced the second unit on the night with his scoring total. It was the second straight double-digit scoring effort for Beasley after only producing two points in just six minutes of playing time in the opener last Saturday. Both Beasley's point totals and minutes have seen increases in each of the last two contests, and he figures to continue playing a key role off the bench as the series unfolds.
Beasley played just five minutes and finished with two points (1-2 FG), one rebound and one assist during Saturday's loss in Houston's playoff opener. After being a surprising boon to the Rockets' bench scoring, Beasley has dropped off significantly as the regular season drew to a close and is fading from the rotation. Despite the game being out of hand for most of it's duration, he remained a non-factor and may soon vanish altogether in the Rocket's likely truncated playoff run.
Beasley tallied 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 88-86 loss to the Mavericks. After seeing only nine minutes in the Rockets' previous game Sunday against the Thunder, Beasley was deployed as usual and once again cashed in with another strong scoring performance off the bench. Beasley has been quite a savvy pickup for the Rockets, averaging an impressive 14.1 points on 51.9 percent shooting from the field over just 19.9 minutes in his 16 games with the team.
Beasley contributed 20 points (7-18 FG, 6-6 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists over 31 minutes in Thursday's 103-100 loss to the Bulls. The veteran forward continues to vastly outperform starter Donatas Motiejunas, and is outpacing him by a wide margin in playing time on many nights as well. Beasley finished the month by tallying double-digit scoring in 11 of his last 12 contests, and posted averages of 14.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 steals across just 20.6 minutes per game. Although the majority of his contributions are limited to points and rebounds, Beasley has certainly rewarded any fantasy owners with the foresight to add him late in their seasons.
