Collison tallied 23 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 40 minutes during Indiana's 105-101 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. The veteran point guard was outstanding while providing crucial offensive support for backcourt mate Victor Oladipo. Collison's 69.2 percent success rate from the floor was his highest of the series and represented his third game with better than 60.0 percent shooting against the Cavaliers overall. The nine-year pro's scoring total was also his best of the seven games, a fitting cap to what was a solid first season of the second Pacers tenure of his career.
Collison tallied 12 points (5-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes during Indiana's 104-100 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. Although his shooting was far from sharp, Collison remained involved enough to generate his second double-digit scoring effort of the season. The nine-year veteran has scuffled with his shot in three of the series' first four games, however, posting success rates from the field of between 14.3 percent and Sunday's 35.7 percent. He's been solid as both a rebounder and facilitator, though, helping keep his overall lines serviceable. He'll look to be sharper offensively when the Pacers try to secure a win in Wednesday's critical Game 5.
Collison dropped 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four assists and three rebounds during Tuesday's 119-93 season-ending loss to Charlotte. Collison wrapped up the regular season by going 3-for-5 from three-point range on his way to 13 points Tuesday. The former UCLA star saw his points-per-game average decline by 0.8 points from last year, but increased his rebounds and assists totals by 0.4 and 0.7 per game respectively. Entering his final season of his two-year contract with the Pacers, Collison is set to make $10 million next season.
Collison finished with 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-4 3Pt), five assists and two steals during Tuesday's 107-104 loss at Denver. Collision shot the ball very efficiently Tuesday, as he drained a perfect 4-of-4 three-point attempts while producing his highest scoring total since dropping 22 points against the Raptors back on Mar. 15. In 13 games since coming back from his knee injury, the former UCLA standout is averaging 11.7 points and 5.9 points per game.
Collison produced 14 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, one rebound and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 111-104 victory over the Clippers. Collison was quiet for the majority of this game but did a lot of his work down the stretch as the Pacers came away with a crucial victory. Collison has not been quite the same player he was before his knee injury but he is coming around at the right time of the season for his owners. His minutes seem to be floating around the 30-minute mark, more than enough for him to put up standard league value.
