Hill recorded 30 points (8-13 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 8-9 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 38 minutes in Friday's 128-112 win over the Rockets.
Hill was lights-out in this game and should end up seeing high demand on the waiver wire after this outburst. He shot a blistering 61.5 from the floor and 66.6 percent from beyond the arc. Although Hill and DeMarcus Cousins (knee) play different positions, it's interesting to note that since Boogie's trade, the Pelicans have been 2-0 without him and 3-7 when he's playing. Hill has played an integral part in both of these wins. Hill started out hot, scoring 14 of his 30 points in the first quarter, which included draining four threes. There's little argument that the Pelicans look a little more 'together' without Cousins on the floor, and it's hard to ignore Hill's breakout game in a much-needed victory over the Rockets. Perhaps there isn't enough room in the frontcourt for Anthony Davis and Cousins, as it may be stifling players like Hill? It will be an interesting situation to monitor as the expectations for the team are high as the playoffs creep closer.
Hill contributed three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 40 minutes in a 101-98 overtime loss to the Spurs on Friday.
It's difficult for any player to make this little of an impact over such a large swath of minutes, but that's a routine occurrence for Hill throughout the season. Any hope that the season-high 23 points that Hill turned in back on Feb. 15 against the Grizzlies would carry over after the All-Star break were dashed once the Pelicans added DeMarcus Cousins to the roster. In the Pelicans' subsequent five contests, Hill has averaged only 3.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 32.2 minutes per contest.
Hill totaled 23 points (8-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one assist across 37 minutes during a 95-91 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Hill's 23 points marked a season high as it was the first time he's scored at least 20 points in a game this season. The four three-pointers marked his second-highest total of the season in the rare offensive outburst. Hill benefited from Dante Cunningham (personal) and Terrence Jones' (thumb) absences. It is likely that Cunningham and Jones will return to the lineup soon, so don't expect more performances like this from him.
Hill compiled nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and two rebounds across 34 minutes in a 105-99 loss to the Kings on Sunday.
Hill has been over the 30-minute mark in four of his six appearances in February, but as has been the case for much of the season, the forward hasn't been able to generate much production when he receives significant playing time. During that six-game stretch, Hill is averaging just 7.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 three-pointers, numbers that don't give him much value beyond deeper leagues.
Hill put up 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals over 33 minutes during a 104-95 win against the Nets on Thursday.
Hill had his best game as a starter against Brooklyn. For the first time since earning the starting role, Hill's jumper didn't look completely broken and he collected a ton of defensive rebounds, leading to transition points for the Pelicans. He won't typically see 10 shot attempts, however, which only occurred Thursday due to Anthony Davis' (hip) absence. Unless Hill shows he can string together efficient nights with Davis on the floor, his fantasy value remains negligible.
