Bjelica turned in 25 points (9-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 29 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Bjelica's four made threes tied Yogi Ferrell for second on the Kings behind Buddy Hield for the night, as Sacramento finished with a franchise-record 19 three-pointers overall. The 30-year-old's totals in both shot attempts and points fell just under his season highs, with his scoring checking in behind only the 26 points he tallied against the Wizards back on Oct. 26. Bjelica's offensive production continues to fluctuate, but his ability to get hot from distance affords him the ability to pile up the points in fairly efficient fashion.
Bjelica pitched in 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 19 minutes in the Kings' 133-121 loss to the Clippers on Thursday. Bjelica once again made good use of modest playing time, scoring in double digits in under 20 minutes for the second time in as many games. The 30-year-old big started November off on an inconsistent note after a strong first eight games of the season in October, but he's seemingly back on track with four double-digit scoring efforts in the last five contests. Second overall pick Marvin Bagley continues to outpace him in minutes on the majority of nights off the bench, but Bjelica figures to continue providing fantasy owners with solid production as long as his shot remains in sync.
Bjelica generated 12 points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes in the Kings' 133-112 loss to the Jazz on Sunday. Bjelica was once again outpaced in minutes by rookie Marvin Bagley, but he made the most of his time on the court. The 30-year-old continues to hold on to a starting spot despite some recent inconsistencies, but his minutes have now dipped under 20 in three of his past five games. Whether Bagley eventually usurps him for the top job at power forward remains to be seen, but Bjelica figures to retain an important role in the Kings' fast-paced offense regardless of whether he's on the first or second unit.
Bjelica registered 18 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 25 minutes in the Kings' 119-110 win over the Jazz on Wednesday. Bjelica's scoring total was his highest since Nov. 1, with half of it coming off his perfect tally from distance. The fourth-year big's offensive production has been a bit inconsistent in November, but he's now posted double-digit scoring in consecutive games for the first time since Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
Bjelica registered 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes in the Kings' 117-113 win over the Thunder on Monday. Bjelica was less involved on offense than some of his other first-unit teammates, but he still managed a solid stat line overall. The 30-year-old continues to split time fairly evenly with second overall pick Marvin Bagley, and he's been outproduced by his rookie teammate at times. Nevertheless, Bjelica continues to be locked into a starting role for the moment, and while his scoring sees a fair share of fluctuation, he's now hauled in between six and eight rebounds in five of his last six contests.
