Bertans totaled nine points (3-9 FG, 3-9 3Pt), four rebounds, two steals, two blocks, and one assist in 30 minutes during Saturday's 122-112 loss to the Thunder. Bertans was one of four Spurs to earn at least 30 minutes. Moreover, Bertans contributed in every category, and continues to provide much-needed floor spacing offensively. With that being said, his modest production limits his value to deep leagues.
Bertans tallied 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-8 3Pt), five boards and one steal across 31 minutes Monday in the Spurs' 120-111 win over the Celtics. More minutes were available for the Spurs' reserve big men with Rudy Gay (wrist) sitting out, with Bertans being one of the bigger beneficiaries of the extra opportunities made available to him. The Latvian finished December with an exceptional 57.1 percent mark from three-point range on 4.5 attempts per game on the month, production that might be enough to lock him into a 20-to-25-minute role off the bench even once Gay returns.
Bertans registered 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), five rebounds, an assist and a block over 23 minutes Saturday against Houston. Bertans has now knocked down three or more shots from beyond the arc in each of his previous four contests. Although likely won't erupt for many big scoring nights, he's evidently found his shooting touch of late and has seen key minutes off the bench. Bertans is averaging 20.6 minutes per game in the month of December (12 matchups).
Bertans produced 15 points (5-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes during Friday's 124-98 victory over the Timberwolves. Bertans hit five triples Friday, once again demonstrating his ability to score from beyond the arc. He has now hit a combined 26 three-pointers in his last 10 games and much like teammates Marco Belinelli and Bryn Forbes, is worth a look as a three-point streamer.
Bertans recorded 16 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 123-96 win over the 76ers. Bertans finished with a season high in dimes while draining three or more three-pointers for the third time in his last five appearances. The 26-year-old forward is one of the team's lone threats from beyond the arc, and he continues to provide efficient shooting splits, albeit in a modest role that's seen him earn 25-plus minutes only five times through 27 appearances.
