Pacers' Kelan Martin: Catches fire against Cavs
Martin scored 25 points (11-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt) to go along with seven rebounds and one block across 25 minutes in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.
Martin played a season-high 25 minutes to tally a career-high 25 points. His hot shooting was a key factor in the Pacers victory and allowed him to earn minutes in place of Doug McDermott. Given the way that Martin has been utilized to this point in the season, his performance Monday should not be expected to carry forward.... See More ... See Less

Martin supplied 21 points (7-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and one block across 30 minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 128-116 loss to the Nuggets.
The rookie out of Butler was one of the primary beneficiaries of D'Angelo Russell (rest) sitting out the front end of the back-to-back set, as Martin took on added usage and finishing with a new career high in scoring. He did the bulk of his damage early, scoring 12 of his points in the first quarter alone. Russell is scheduled to return to action Monday in Dallas, so expect Martin to see both his playing time and usage take a hit.... See More ... See Less

After a two-and-a-half-week stint with the G League's Iowa Wolves, Martin rejoined the parent club last week and has seized a rotation spot right away. The two-way rookie has knocked down exactly half of his shots while playing at least 16 minutes in the last three games, essentially filling in for the injured Allen Crabbe (kneecap) on the second unit. The rookie out of Butler even cut into backup wing Keita Bates-Diop's playing time Monday, with the five minutes Bates-Diop received representing his lowest total since Dec. 11.... See More ...

After an eight-game run in the Minnesota rotation that included three starts, Martin, a two-way player, returned to the G League a few days ago when the Timberwolves welcomed back multiple players from injuries or illnesses. The Butler product should continue to regularly fill a high-volume role on offense while he remains with Iowa.... See More ... See Less
