E'Twaun Moore managed just two points in his 16 minutes Monday against the Pacers. He also added two rebounds along with an assist and a steal.
As the backup shooting guard behind Jimmy Butler, Moore is off to a hot start shooting the ball (50.0% FG, 38.5% 3Pt). However, he doesn't necessarily take very many shots in his 18.2 minutes per game, which results in him averaging 5.5 points per game for the 2015-16 season.
E'Twaun Moore scored eight points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and dished out an assist over 16 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.
Moore has been used in each of the Chicago Bulls ' five games this season and is averaging 16.8 minutes per game. While that allotment of playing time won't be enough for Moore to maintain much fantasy value, it illustrates that he appears to be ahead of Kirk Hinrich for duties as the Bulls' fourth guard off the bench behind Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, and Aaron Brooks.
E'Twaun Moore tallied 13 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, an assist, and a steal over 19 minutes in Tuesday's 103-94 preseason victory over the Pacers.
The fifth-year pro put together another solid all-around performance on his way to scoring in the teens for the fourth time in seven preseason contests. Moore has shown the ability to heat up from the field in those outings, sinking 61 percent (27-for-44) of his shots in those games. Since Moore currently slots down both the shooting and point guard depth charts, he does not presently have prospects of receiving more than 10 minutes per game in the regular season.
Chicago Bulls point guard E'Twaun Moore scored 18 points on 8 of 12 shooting to go along with two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 23 minutes Saturday against Minnesota.
Derrick Rose (left orbital fracture) did not play again Sunday and Kirk Hinrich only played 17 minutes, leaving Moore with extra playing time. Although he is a capable backup, don't expect him to see extended playing time this season barring multiple injuries at the point.
Moore was already in the midst of a fantastic shooting night when, with the Bulls down one point and four seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, coach Tom Thibodeau called a play for the fourth-year player. Power forward Pau Gasol took the inbound pass and immediately kicked out to Moore, who buried a three-pointer with a player in his face to put the team up two with two seconds to play.
"I was aware of the time management," Moore said after the game, per the Associated Press. "I knew we only had four seconds (when the play started) and if he kicked it out, I knew there's not much time left. I just shot it with confidence."
Moore played 22 minutes in the victory, seeing 20 minutes of action for the first time since the end of December, and managed four rebounds, two steals and one block in addition to his excellent shooting performance and a quality defensive showing while matched up at times with Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook.
"The way E'Twaun competed on every play, that goes a long way," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I thought we had a number of guys step up."
The Bulls will square off with the Pacers Friday.
