Patterson had three points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and two steals in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 118-114 loss to the Pelicans.

Patterson has only earned 20-plus minutes three times this season. Moreover, he had gone scoreless in three straight games prior to this one, providing minimal value off the bench despite his theoretical fit as a career 36.7 percent three-point shooter.
