Temple had 15 points (6-15 FG, 3-8 3PT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's 105-102 win against the Nuggets. Temple has been up-and-down with his scoring, but has scored in double digits in nine of his 14 consecutive starts to date. He has topped the 10-point mark in four of his last five games as well, so he might be in line for some signs of consistency. He will aim to extend that run Wednesday at home against the Hornets.
Temple tallied 27 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 130-118 win over the Hawks. Temple matched his career high in threes while amassing a season high scoring total. He has scored at least 22 points in two of the last four games, and with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) already ruled out for Friday's tilt against the Hornets and Caris LeVert (thumb) expected to miss at least another week and a half, Temple will likely continue to be relied upon fairly heavily in the short term.
Temple supplied 12 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block on Friday during the Nets' 112-107 win over Boston.

Temple did his best Kyrie Irving (shoulder) impression Wednesday, leading the Nets in scoring. Temple is averaging over 28 minutes per game and has carved out a sizable role for Brooklyn. Currently lacking Irving and Caris LeVert (thumb), there is a void on offense that yields extra opportunities to players like Temple. Typically a defensive journeyman, he could begin to generate streaming consideration in deeper leagues until the Nets regain their scorers.
Temple scored 18 points (6-13 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four assists, three rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 116-97 win over the Kings. Caris LeVert's thumb injury has opened up a starting spot for Temple, but Friday was the first time in six games he was really able to take advantage of the opportunity. During that stretch, the 33-year-old is averaging 10.2 points, 3.5 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.8 three-pointers in 29.3 minutes a night, and Temple will remain on the fringes of fantasy relevance unless he can become more productive on a consistent basis.
