Seraphin produced two points (1-1 FG) and two rebounds across six minutes in a 87-81 loss to the Knicks on Tuesday. The Pacers had a few extra minutes available in the frontcourt with bench big man Lavoy Allen (knee) sitting out, so Seraphin was able to enter the rotation for the first time in three games. Barring any other injuries to the team's core frontcourt options, Seraphin isn't likely to see his playing time pick up from here, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Seraphin posted 8 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes During Thursday's 111-98 loss to the Wizards. With Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) still sidelined, Seraphin once again drew the start and played about as well as he did against the Cavs Wednesday night. Coach Nate McMillan took a different tactic and gave Al Jefferson extended minutes in Seraphin's stead, and the veteran forward outscored Seraphin with 12 points over11 minutes. Losing a guy like Young would be tough on any team as he leads the Pacers in steals and field-goal percentage. His loss has helped extended the Pacers' losing streak to six straight. There's no need to rush in and grab Seraphin or Jefferson as the team hopes to see Young back after the All-Star break, and even if he misses more time the situation is too muddled to warrant taking a risk on either player.
Seraphin registered 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 27 minutes in Monday's 110-106 loss to the Spurs. Seraphin reached double-digit points for the fourth time this season in Monday night's start. He's averaged just 10.9 minutes on the season, but with both Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) both out, he nearly tripled that average. If he wants to see more consistent minutes in the rotation, he's going to have to rebound more effectively than he did Monday, as four boards in 27 minutes won't cut it for a team that lacks true rebounders.
Seraphin will draw the start for Monday's tilt against the Spurs. With Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) out for Monday's game, the Pacers will opt to start Kevin Seraphin. Seraphin played 25 minutes during Friday's tilt against the Wizards and put up 16 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks, and should see a similar workload Monday.
Seraphin contributed 16 points (8-10 FG), seven rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 25 minutes during a 112-107 loss to the Wizards on Friday. Seraphin got hot against his former team, as the 16 points were a season high and marked just the third time this season he has reached double figures in scoring. The two blocks also matched a season high. The performance truly came out of nowhere, as Seraphin had not scored more than two points in a game since Jan. 12.
