Gordon finished with 23 points (8-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 29 minutes during Thursday's 101-96 victory over the Clippers. After failing to land a single field goal in his previous game, Gordon was back on track Thursday, connecting on seven triples. The Clippers put up a good fight and actually had a double-digit lead midway through the third quarter. Improved defense and some perimeter scoring allowed the Rockets to eventually come away with an important victory. Gordon is locked into a bench role and is certainly worth owning despite his lack of peripheral stats.
Gordon scored one point (0-7 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with one rebound and two assists across 23 minutes during Monday's 109-93 win over the Spurs. Gordon returned to the bench as James Harden reentered the lineup, enduring a miserable shooting night as he failed to knock down a single attempt from the floor. This poor performance came out of nowhere for Gordon, who was averaging 20.6 points and 4.2 treys per game on 47 percent shooting over the last six. He'll look to bounce back Thursday against the Clippers.
Gordon will return to a bench role for Monday's game against the Spurs, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Gordon drew the spot start on Sunday in place of the injured James Harden (knee), posting a game-high 26 points, while adding four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 31 minutes. With Harden returning to the starting five Monday, Gordon will head back to the bench, though his playing time shouldn't take a huge hit. That said, fantasy owners should expect his usage to drop with Harden commanding the ball at a very high rate offensively.
Gordon scored 26 points (9-16 FG, 6-11 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Sundays 1-5-82 win against Dallas. Starting in place of James Harden (knee), Gordon responded with a game-high 26 points Sunday on 6-of-11 from beyond the arc. The guard had made at least three three-pointers in seven straight games. During this span, Gordon is shooting 46.9 percent from three on 9.4 three-point attempts per game. Averaging 9.1 three-pointers per game this season, it is average for him to launch a high volume of three-pointers. Whether or not he is in the starting lineup, Gordon will likely shoot his fair share from long range.
Gordon scored 14 points (5-14 FG, 3-7 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go with one rebound, one assist and one block in 29 minutes during Friday's 108-105 loss to Toronto. In his last five games, Gordon has made at least three three-pointers. During this span, the guard is still shooting in very high volumes for 47.8 percent from beyond the arc on 9.2 three-point attempts per game. However, over his last three games, Gordon is relying almost entirely on the three ball. Of his 15 made field goals, 10 of them are from three, resulting in 30 of his 46 points during this span. If Gordon is not in a rhythm from long range, his potential as a scorer from the bench decreases.
