Caldwell-Pope posted six points (2-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 34 minutes Wednesday against the Heat. Caldwell-Pope may have had a cold shooting night, but he's been a tier more efficient lately compared to last season. Over four games prior to Tuesday, he had been shooting 53 percent from the field. That being said, hes a streaky shooter, but the improvement he's made this year (relative to his 40 percent FG for his career) has been encouraging, and owners can expect him to have better performances moving forward.
Caldwell-Pope netted 17 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) as the starting shooting guard in a losing effort against Milwaukee. Caldwell-Pope is benefiting from a lot of minutes (36.8 MPG) and is putting together a very nice season so far in the 2015-2016 season. He has started in all of Detroit's 14 games this year, and is averaging 13.8 points per game behind a 43.4% of his field goal attempts.
Caldwell-Pope scored 12 points (4-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and recorded five assists, five reobunds, and a steal while playing 42 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Pacers. The high minutes count isn't surprising for Caldwell-Pope, as the long-term foot injury to Jodie Meeks has really compromised the Pistons' depth at guard. Caldwell-Pope has struggled to find his shot in the early going with a 36 percent mark from the field, but he's averaging 38.3 minutes per contest, which should continue to make him a strong source of counting stats.
Caldwell-Pope scored a team-high 21 points (7-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added four rebounds in Tuesday's season opening win over the Hawks. After an inconsistent 2014-15 campaign, it was very nice to see KCP have an efficient opener, shooting 50 percent from the field and draining four 3-pointers in the process. Caldwell-Pope has shown steady improvement over his first two seasons and showed that he's ready to take the next step with a big game against a quality opponent in Atlanta. He was likely a trendy sleeper pick in re-draft formats and deeper leagues, but if he is available, it'd be wise to scoop him up now.
Caldwell-Pope (foot) practiced Monday and is set to play in Tuesday's season opener against the Hawks, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Caldwell-Pope was slowed by a sore left foot for a few days, but it appears the injury will not be an issue as he and the Pistons head into the regular season. The Pistons will be hoping Caldwell-Pope can hit more shots this season, but he stands to receive more minutes, and should thus see a boost in the counting categories.
