Plumlee provided eight points (4-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) to go with a career-high 12 assists, 10 rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 40 minutes in a 125-124 double-overtime loss to the Pistons on Sunday.
Considering that Plumlee played a season-high minutes total, the scoring output was something of a disappointment after he had eclipsed 15 points or more in three straight games. That being said, Plumlee still came awfully close to notching a triple-double thanks to his top-flight skills as a distributor, which are matched by few centers around the league. Plumlee's 4.6 assists per game on the season rank second on the team behind only point guard Damian Lillard.
Plumlee registered 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-8 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes in a 118-109 win over the Lakers on Thursday.
Plumlee took a step back at the charity stripe after going 71.9 percent from the line over the previous five games, but his efficient mark from the field allowed him to reach double figures in the scoring column with relative ease. The Trail Blazers won't be in need of as much point production from Plumlee now that Damian Lillard (ankle) is back following a five-game absence, but the center was nearly as effective with Lillard earlier in the season as he was without him.
Plumlee registered 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes in a 95-91 loss to the Raptors on Monday.
The 15 rebounds were a season high for Plumlee, who notched his fifth double-double of the campaign. The center hasn't been as consistent on the boards or as a scorer as fantasy owners would like to see, but his passing skills often help compensate for any lapses in either of the aforementioned areas. He's averaging 4.2 assists per game on the season, a career high and an impressive figure for a 6-foot-11 player.
Plumlee racked up a career-high 27 points (10-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-11 FT) to go with 13 rebounds, five assists and two blocks and one steal across 36 minutes in a 126-121 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.
Plumlee was exceptional on the offense end in the game, but the impact of his performance was mitigated by opposing big man DeMarcus Cousins gutting the Trail Blazers for a whopping 55 points. While the Trail Blazers' defensive struggles have been a real problem this season, the team's propensity for playing in high-scoring affairs has elevated Plumlee's fantasy production. The fourth-year center has now tallied 18 or more points in four of his last five games, with the only dud -- a four-point performance -- coming in Saturday's blowout loss to the Warriors, who have shut down many opposing big men throughout the season. Plumlee will have a good chance to keep rolling Wednesday against a struggling Mavs squad.
Plumlee scored 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-7 FT), along with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in a 120-132 loss to Denver on Thursday.
Plumlee seems to have made some kind of a minor breakthrough. He's timing his rolls to the rim much better, and seems more comfortable catching and finishing once he reaches the basket. But expect his streak to end soon, as Portland plays top-ranked defense Golden State on Saturday, followed by the Kings on Tuesday, who feature DeMarcus Cousins at center.
