Teague scored 21 points (9-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with eight assists, two rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot over 33 minutes in Friday's 125-117 loss to the Nuggets. Teague found himself in a rare spot, as he was in danger of fouling out in this game, which has only happened to him once all season. He still played very close to his season average in minutes so it had little effect on his output. As a season-long starter for the Pacers, he is among the most dependable players in the league for fantasy value at point guard and can blow up for huge games in the right matchup. One of those great matchups will occur on Sunday in Philly, as Teague has torched the 76ers for 21.5 points and 6.5 assists across 2 contests this season.
Teague scored 25 points (10-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six assists, two rebounds and one steal across 35 minutes of action in a 109-100 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday. Teague posted 20-plus points for the second night in a row Wednesday, but he and teammate Paul George were the only Pacers to score in double-figures which undoubtedly contributed to the loss. The Indiana point guard's recent scoring burst over the last two has been a welcome change of pace after averaging just 11.7 points in his previous nine games in March.
Teague totaled 21 points (6-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 37 minutes during a 107-100 win over the Jazz on Monday. Teague's 21 points were a team high and marked his highest scoring total since Feb. 27. Other than field goal percentage, Teague is posting good all-around numbers over the last five games, with averages of 13.2 points, 6.6 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 three-pointers made per game. But he is shooting just 35 percent from the field in that stretch. He is shooting 43.6 percent from the field so far this season, so expect those shooting numbers to improve soon.
Teague posted eight points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 11 assists and eight rebounds across 30 minutes in a 98-77 win over the Hornets on Wednesday. Teague produced an odd stat-line Wednesday falling just two points and two rebounds shy of his first triple-double of the season. He has flirted with triple-doubles at least a half-dozen other times this year, but he's always fallen just short. In this case Teague was held back by the fact that the Indiana was handily destroying the Hornets, which earned him a little bit of rest to close out the Pacers' second game in as many nights. Teague struggled with his shot during both legs of the back-to-back-- he failed to reach double-figures scoring in either game and shot just 30.4 percent overall.
Teague posted 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, four rebounds and three steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 99-85 loss to the Bucks. Teague coughed up the ball seven times on Friday, equaling his season-high single-game turnover total. He's also experiencing a bit of a dip in scoring, posting only 12 points per game in March as opposed to his current season average of 15.2 points per game. The Pacers are inextricably linked to the success of their floor general, and this Sunday will be a challenge for Teague as they face the Heat at home. In two games against Miami, he has shot only 32 percent from the floor and managed an average of only 13 points and 5.5 assists per game.
