Ellis scored 20 points (9-20 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six assists and four rebounds over 36 minutes in Monday's 96-95 loss to the Bulls. With George Hill (illness) and Rodney Stuckey (ankle) both sidelined, Ellis finished second on the Pacers in minutes on the night. He's scored 20 or more points in three of his past five games, delivering a more consistent scoring effort.
Ellis recorded 24 points (11-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes during the Pacers' 107-103 win versus the Wolves on Friday. Through 10 games with the Pacers, Ellis is averaging 12.6 points on 43 percent from the field, 23 percent from beyond the arc, and 74 percent from the free-throw line to go along with 3.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 33 minutes per game. After being the number one offensive option in Dallas for the last few seasons, Ellis has struggled so far in his new role with the Pacers, shooting poorly while committing 2.6 turnovers per game. However, with Rodney Stuckey (ankle) sidelined, Ellis may be forced to play extended minutes more often, which could help him produce more consistently useful counting stats.
Ellis posted 13 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), two rebounds, six assists, and four steals in 35 minutes of action Wednesday against the Celtics. Ellis has found himself in the middle of a mini-slump, shooting just 5-for-18 for a total of 15 points over the last two games. He's been able to contribute 5.0 APG and 3.0 SPG during that span, so it's not a total loss for owners. However, he'll need to rack up more points to become a more effective fantasy option.
Ellis posted just two points (1-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt) along with four assists, four rebounds, and two steals in Monday's win over the Magic. After a sluggish start to the season, Ellis seemed to have a breakthrough after pouring in 25 points Sunday against the Cavaliers, but he was unable to keep the momentum going in the second half of the back-to-back. He's now posted four- and two-point efforts in two of his last three games, forcing George Hill to shoulder more of the scoring burden in the backcourt.
Ellis scored 15 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt) while chipping in three assists, three rebounds and three steals in Tuesday's 94-82 win over the Pistons. Ellis' start to his career in Indiana hasn't been as glamorous as fans have anticipated. He turned in a solid shooting night from the field, but has really struggled from beyond the arc, 2-for-11 in four games. Ellis isn't going to get the volume of shots to put up big numbers on the Pacers, but will eventually have one of his vintage breakout games.
