Kyle Anderson played five minutes and accrued no statistics in Monday's 98-97 Game 2 loss to the Thunder.
With the San Antonio Spurs trailing for most of the contest, coach Gregg Popovich relied more heavily on his starters, leaving little opportunity for Anderson to get off the bench. The second-year forward had seen at least 14 minutes in each of the Spurs' previous five playoff games, but nearly all of those contests were of the blowout variety.
Kyle Anderson scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, five steals, and four assists in 30 minutes during the San Antonio Spurs ' 96-91 win against the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Anderson swiped a career-high five steals while matching his career high with 15 points in Wednesday's start, and he also delivered his first double-double. It's unclear exactly how much time Anderson will play in the postseason, but he is unlikely to log very many minutes in a playoff game that's not a total blowout.
Kyle Anderson scored eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 FT) and added 11 rebounds and three assists over 20 minutes in Thursday's 112-101 loss to the Warriors.
The second-year forward was outstanding on the glass in a reserve role, tallying a career high in boards. Anderson has notably received at least 20 minutes of playing time in his last two games, a sign that coach Gregg Popovich could certainly have gained some trust in him after a season where the UCLA product has acquitted himself fairly well in starting opportunities.
Kyle Anderson scored 13 points (4-6 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-2 3Pt) to go along with a season-high seven assists, four steals, three rebounds and a block in 36 minutes during Monday's win over the Grizzlies.
The 22-year-old stepped into an expanded role with many of San Antonio's regulars sitting out, and he responded with a healthy all-around effort. Anderson has shown the ability to produce in multiple categories, but his value is seemingly directly tied to who is resting for the San Antonio Spurs on a given night. As such, he remains a more attractive daily option than he does a season-long sleeper.
