Roberson chipped in four points (2-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt), 12 rebounds, and one block over 39 minutes in Monday's Game 7 loss to the Golden State Warriors. After nailing at least one three-pointer in each of the first five games against Golden State, Roberson failed to connect on a single triple over the final two contests and looked to have lost all of the confidence he amassed during this playoff run. Despite his offensive limitations, he excelled as a versatile wing defender and was able to convert enough of his open looks to keep the defense honest, shooting a respectable . However, after poor showings in the team's final two games, his starting job is far from secure as the Thunder enter this offseason.
Roberson tallied 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks and a steal over 29 minutes during Saturday's 108-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals. The 24-year-old was back in double digits after a six-point output in Game 5, and turned in some solid defense as well. The three blocks were a postseason high, and the double-digit point tally was the third in the last four games. Roberson has provided some surprising offense during the series, and could play an important ancillary role in Monday's decisive Game 7.
Roberson recorded 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-8 FT), 12 rebounds, five steals, three assists, and two blocks across 40 minutes during the Thunder's 118-94 win over the Warriors in Tuesday's Game 4. Roberson played the third most minutes for Oklahoma City behind Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, who each saw 41 minutes of action. After struggling to start the series, Roberson is now scoring more than twice his season average (10.5 points) while shooting 59 percent from the field and 55 percent from beyond the arc. Considering the circumstances, this was Roberson's best game of his career, and coach Billy Donovan's faith in him has really paid off.
Roberson tallied 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 30 minutes in Sunday's 133-105 Game 3 victory over the Warriors. Roberson is on the court almost exclusively for his defensive abilities, but even he was able to get in on the act on the other end as the Thunder registered their highest scoring total of the postseason. The 24-year-old has only two double-digit scoring efforts in 14 playoff games, both of which were made possible with above-average showings from downtown.
Roberson compiled 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, an assist, two blocks and a steal over 33 minutes in Thursday's 113-99 series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Spurs. The 24-year-old came out of nowhere for his first double-digit scoring performance of the playoffs. Roberson had been scoreless over a combined 86-minute span in four out of the series' first five games, taking only seven shot attempts overall. That all changed Thursday, when the two-guard managed to drain 62 percent of his eight shots, including 60 percent of his five attempts from beyond the arc. With Roberson only having managed five double-digit scoring outings in all of the regular season, it's highly unlikely a performance the likes of Thursday's will repeat itself very often, if at all, for the remainder of the Thunder's postseason run.
