Moore managed 20 points (11-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes in Monday's 112-109 win over the Pistons. The seven-year veteran bounced back from a rough start to the new calendar year with his second-best shooting effort of the season. Moore's marksmanship has been on another level in the current campaign, as he's now posted an impressive six games with 72.7 percent shooting or better, including a season-best 85.7 percent success rate against the Trail Blazers back on Dec. 2. The considerably improved accuracy has led to a career-high 54.6 percent figure from the field over his first 39 contests, including a personal best 45.6 percent from behind the arc. Considering he's churning out new high-water marks in scoring (13.2) and rebounds (2.7) as well, Moore has to qualify as one of the bigger fantasy surprises of the season, especially factoring in that he shares the floor with the high-usage quartet of DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holiday.
Moore provided 16 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal across 35 minutes in Friday's 128-120 loss to the Mavericks. Although teammates Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins once again dominated on the offensive end, Moore rode a third straight strong shooting night to a productive outing. The veteran guard has double-digit scoring efforts in four of his last five games and carries a blistering 59.4 percent success rate from the field in December -- including 58.7 percent from three-point range -- into Saturday's contest against the Knicks.
Moore offered 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 128-113 win over the Nets. With Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday combining for 55 shot attempts and 83 points, Moore played more of a complementary role. However, he still managed to hit the 20-point mark on just 11 shot attempts, reaching double digits in the scoring column for the third time in the last four games and sixth time in the last eight. Despite sharing the floor with the aforementioned high-usage trio, Moore has generated solid averages of 16.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 13 December contests.
Moore provided four points (2-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 40 minutes in Friday's 117-111 loss to the Nuggets. Moore had been supplying some eye-popping numbers on the offensive end in recent games, as he'd scored in double digits in seven of his previous nine contests while shooting between 50.0 and 85.7 percent. His numbers took a dive across the stat sheet Friday, however, with the veteran's scoring tally his lowest since Nov. 4. Given the sky-high usage rates of teammates Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins -- and to a lesser extent, Jrue Holiday -- Moore's contributions are bound to fluctuate to a degree, but he remains a serviceable source of rebounds and assists even when his scoring sees a downturn.
Moore exploded for 36 points (15-20 FG, 6-8 3Pt), three rebounds, and three assists in 42 minutes during Monday's 130-123 loss to the Rockets. Moore was a man on a mission, finishing with career highs in scoring and threes. He is on a tear this month, posting 19.4 points per game (on 62.1 percent from the field) and 3.6 treys (on 67.6 percent) through seven December showdowns. Anthony Davis (groin) has missed four of the seven games this month, which has undoubtedly been a factor in Moore's breakout. Nevertheless, there should still be plenty of shots to go around once Davis comes back since the team prefers an uptempo style of play.
