It looked like Smith was on course to wash out of the league after serving as bottom-of-the-roster fodder for a number of teams in his first five years as a professional, but he cemented himself as a viable NBA regular in 2015-16. After a successful run early in the season with the Pelicans when a number of the team's point guards were injured, Smith was dealt in December to the 76ers, where he served in a starting role the rest of the way. In 50 games with the 76ers, Smith averaged 14.7 points, 7.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 32.4 minutes per game, but his inconsistent shooting, slight frame and unreliable touch from three-point range makes him better suited for backup duties long term. Look for Smith to slot in behind Reggie Jackson on the depth chart and give the Pistons around 15-to-20 minutes per game off the bench, with the speed he brings to the table making him a more capable second-unit floor general than Steve Blake was last season.
Ish Smith finished with 22 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and two blocks in 39 minutes during the Philadelphia 76ers ' 109-108 overtime loss to the Bucks on Sunday.
Smith committed six turnovers, yet it was an exemplary performance. He has been producing gaudy stats since he arrived with the 76ers back in December, so this was hardly surprising. The Raptors and Bulls might be resting starters since the former has the playoffs upcoming and the latter is eliminated from postseason contention. As a result, if Smith receives his regular allotment of minutes, he could finish the season with two more strong showings.
Ish Smith totaled 20 points (5-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block in 39 minutes during the Philadelphia 76ers ' 109-102 loss to the Knicks on Friday.
Smith turned in one of his stronger performances in recent memory on Friday, as he came fairly close to posting a triple-double. Smith has scored 20 points or more 15 times this season while handing out at least seven assists on 38 occasions. Following a solid showing during a back-to-back set versus the Trail Blazers and Warriors in late March, Smith has gone only 21-of-59 over the last five games. Still, Smith's production in terms of counting stats makes him fairly valuable in most leagues.
Ish Smith finished with 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 10 assists, three rebounds, and three steals across 36 minutes during the Philadelphia 76ers ' 117-105 loss to the Warriors on Sunday.
Smith had a terrific weekend, making 17-of-28 field-goal attempts for 37 points combined to go with averages of 9.5 assists, 8.5 rebounds, and two steals over two games. Having gone 20-for-72 for 49 points over the previous five contests while averaging 6.9 assists and five rebounds, it's safe to say Smith has broken out of his recent slump. Still, the 76ers will need him to continue playing solid ball if the team hopes to avoid tying for the worst record in NBA history.
Engaged in a tough one-on-one battle with All-Star Damian Lillard, Smith more than held his own, actually outperforming the Trail Blazers' point guard on the night. It was a dynamic bounce-back effort for the point guard, who'd averaged a paltry 7.3 points on 23.4 percent shooting over the previous four contests. The 14 boards were a season high, and the nine dimes equaled the monthly high he'd set back on Mar. 11 versus the Nets. Despite the recent struggles, Smith's Saturday performance provided a glimpse of the considerable ceiling he offers in all fantasy formats.
