Plumlee tallied 12 points (6-11 FG), 15 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Monday's 132-125 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the series. With Andrew Bogut battling foul trouble on the evening, Plumlee faced less resistance than usual on the interior, and finished with his highest point and rebound total of the series. The Warriors still forced Plumlee to turn the ball over five times, and he's now given the ball away 14 times through four games. He'll need to clean up his sloppy play if the Blazers, who trail 3-1 in the series, have any hope of avoiding elimination in Oakland during Wednesday's Game 5.
Plumlee was limited to one point (0-7 FG, 1-2 FT), but contributed 12 rebounds, six assists, and two blocks across 25 minutes in Sunday's 118-106 Game 1 loss to the Warriors. The Warriors frontcourt pair of Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut smothered Plumlee, who had been one of the Blazers' unsung heroes in their first-round win over the Clippers. Though Plumlee offered his usual contributions on the glass and as a shot blocker, he failed to hit a shot from the field for the first time since March 6. The Warriors' dogged defense could cause problems for the Blazers throughout the series, which may limit Plumlee's nightly upside on the offensive end.
Plumlee compiled nine points (3-5 FG, 3-6 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal over 31 minutes in Friday's 106-103 series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Clippers. The Blazers' big man did the majority of his work on the glass, collecting double-digit boards for the fifth straight game. He made an impact on the defensive side of things, with nine of the rebounds coming on that end of the floor. He also posted multiple blocks for the second time in the series, and just missed a second consecutive double-double. After a forgettable four-point, five-rebound performance in a Game 1 where the entire Portland squad seemed out of synch, Plumlee bounced back to average 8.0 points, 13.2 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over the six games versus the Clippers.
Plumlee produced 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists, and two steals across 32 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 108-98 victory versus the Clippers in Wednesday's Game 5. Plumlee continues to be a reliable, well-rounded contributor here in round one, with averages of 7.8 points, 13.0 rebounds, six assists, one steal, and 0.8 blocks in 29 minutes. Plumlee's scoring has dipped a bit during the postseason, but his rebounds and assists are up significantly from the regular season. This was his second double-double through five playoff games, and Plumlee will look to help the Trail Blazers advance to round two when the series shifts back to Portland for Game 6 this Friday.
Plumlee scored just two points (1-6 FG) but collected 14 rebounds and 10 assists in 30 minutes during Monday's crucial Game 4 win against the Clippers. Plumlee couldn't find the touch offensively, but he more than made his presence felt against the Clippers' formidable front line. He dished out a career-high 10 assists and became the first player this playoffs to notch double-digit rebounds and assists in a single game. The third-year big man will continue to be an integral part of this surprisingly disciplined Blazers squad.
