Holiday finished with four points (2-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt), four steals and three rebounds across 19 minutes Wednesday in the Pacers' 119-100 loss to the Bucks. Holiday's poor shooting from the field took a bigger fantasy line off the table, but he continued to bring value for those who streamed him for steals. He's now recorded 10 over his last three games, and he could have a decent opportunity to continue shining in that category due to the Pacers' shaky health in the backcourt. Malcolm Brogdon (hip) exited early Wednesday, while Victor Oladipo (knee) missed a second straight game and Jeremy Lamb (knee) is done for the season. Brogdon and Oladipo are both at risk of missing Friday's game in Chicago, so Holiday, younger brother Aaron and T.J. McConnell could all be in store for some extra minutes as a result.
Holiday posted 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 23 minutes Tuesday night, as the Pacers beat the Hornets 119-80. Holiday took advantage of a depleted Pacers' backcourt as well as the bench minutes available during the lopsided victory. The looming return of Victor Oladipo (sore back) will likely zap most of Holiday's already sporadic contributions.
Holiday scored a season-high 22 points (7-12 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 31 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 119-118 loss to the Raptors. The veteran guard ended up playing more minutes than starters Victor Oladipo or Jeremy Lamb, as Holiday's hot shooting kept him on the court. The six made threes were also a season high, but despite his consistent workload -- he hasn't played fewer than 22 minutes since Jan. 6 -- Holiday's offensive contributions have been erratic, and his role is likely to shrink further as Victor Oladipo shakes off his rust.
Holiday compiled nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five blocks, three rebounds and three steals in 25 minutes Monday in the Pacers' 118-88 loss to the Jazz. Holiday's career-high block total and Myles Turner's six steals represented two of the more anomalous defensive performances of the season. In Holiday's case, his five swats nearly matched his total (six) from his previous 14 games combined. The three steals are less of an outlier, but still well above the 1.0 per game Holiday is averaging for the season. The 30-year-old should be viewed as more of a fit in 14- or 16-team leagues than someone who needs to be rostered in shallower leagues.
Holiday tallied 14 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and one block in 25 minutes Sunday in the Pacers' 115-107 win over the Nuggets. Holiday has emerged as a reliable three-point streamer over the past three weeks, knocking down 2.7 per game at a 51.9 percent clip over his last 10 appearances. Unfortunately, Holiday hasn't been able to supplement the outside shooting with his usual steals production, recording only six thefts during that 10-game stretch. Holiday's track record suggests that he'll eventually improve his defensive numbers, but any recovery in that area may be muted by the likely return of Victor Oladipo (knee) later this month. Once Oladipo is back in action, Holiday, Aaron Holiday, Jeremy Lamb and Doug McDermott could all cough up a few minutes apiece.
