Moore supplied eight points (3-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes during New Orleans' 111-102 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Moore was more involved on the offensive end than in Game 1, but some shooting struggles served to keep his scoring in single digits for the second straight game. The veteran wing has more or less been a forgotten figure in the Pelicans' offense over the first two contests of the series, but the success and high usage of his teammates have made his lackluster production a moot point. He'll look to up his numbers across the board in Thursday's Game 3.
Moore contributed only four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 27 minutes in New Orleans' 97-95 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Moore was the forgotten man offensively on a night when Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday and Nikola Mirotic took a whopping 61 shot attempts between them. Despite the quiet performance, Moore's contributions are likely to see a boost and play an important role in any postseason success for the Pelicans, considering he finished the regular season with career bests in scoring (12.5 points) and shooting percentage (50.8) while serving as an effective complementary source of offense.
Moore accounted for 15 points (7-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and seven assists across 37 minutes in Saturday's 126-120 win over the Warriors. After a rare clunker against the Suns on Friday night in which he shot just 37.5 percent on eight attempts, Moore was back to his usual sharp self Saturday. The seven-year veteran pushed his April shooting average to a blistering 62.8 percent with Saturday's perfect performance, and he supplemented his strong offensive night by equaling his best assist total of the season. Moore's offensive contributions naturally see a fair share of variance considering the high-usage profile of several of his first-unit teammates, but his typically impressive marksmanship (career-high 50.6 percent shooting this season) often enables him to churn out fantasy-friendly lines.
Moore compiled 30 points (11-16 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, three steals, one rebound, and one block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 123-95 win over the Grizzlies. Moore drained a career-high seven treys while scoring 30 points or more for the second time this season. He picked a good time to get hot, as the Pelicans are still trying to stamp their playoff ticket. Friday's matchup with the Suns and Saturday's showdown with the Warriors should both be fairly high-octane up-and-down games, which gives Moore some solid situations to keep filling it up.
Moore turned in 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and two steals across 31 minutes in Sunday's 109-104 loss to the Thunder. Moore's scoring total checked in second only to Anthony Davis on the first unit and also equaled his second-highest tally since March 4. The veteran wing has posted double-digit scoring efforts in 10 of his past 12 games, with a career-best 49.9 percent success rate from the floor playing a pivotal role in his newfound consistency. While Davis and Jrue Holiday continue to be the focal points of the Pelicans' starting five, Moore has proven capable of serving as an ideal complementary offensive presence on many nights.
