Ellington had 13 points (4-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and two steals in 39 minutes during Saturday's 119-103 loss to Milwaukee. Ellington played a team-high 39 minutes Saturday, ending the loss with 13 points including three triples. He has been a solid pickup for the Pistons after they lost Reggie Bullock mid-season, as a player who can hit multiple threes while also chipping in a few steals from time-to-time. There is a decent chance the Pistons season comes to an end Monday in Game 4 with everyone needing to step up if they are to send the series back to Milwaukee.
Ellington totaled 14 points (4-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists and a steal over 33 minutes in the Pistons' loss to the Hornets on Sunday. Ellington contributed solid minutes on Sunday, finishing with an all-around stat line in the loss. He's been on a nice run recently, averaging 17.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists over his last six games.
Ellington totaled 24 points (9-16 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal over 35 minutes Wednesday against Indiana. Ellington scored 15 of his 24 points from beyond the arc and turned in a well-rounded line. Despite this, the Pistons would fall 108-89 on the night. The North Carolina product has scored 24 or more points in three of his previous five contests, and his team will need his scoring contributions down the stretch of the regular season if they have any hope of maintaining a playoff spot in what has turned out to be a tightly contested race.
Ellington amassed 26 points (10-19 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a block in 37 minutes Monday against the Pacers. Ellington led the charge for the Pistons with Blake Griffin out with a knee injury. The veteran guard's scored at least 20 points in four of his past eight games, and continues to provide bursts of scoring off the bench. Since joining the Pistons, Ellington's drilled at least one three in all but two four contests. While he's not going to fill up the box score routinely, Ellington's shot is as consistent as they come.
Ellington registered 25 points (9-16 FG, 7-13 3Pt) and three steals across 31 minutes in Thursday's 115-98 win over the Magic. After having no rebounds and no assists in either of his last two games, it is clear that Ellington is only a scorer. He now has sunk 11 threes over that same span, showing off his one true talent. If he can pick up his effort on the defensive end and get more steals like he did Thursday, the Pistons would certainly appreciate it as they fight for a playoff spot.
