Rivers averaged 8.3 points, two rebounds and 1.9 assists across 22.1 minutes in 10 games since the All-Star break. Rivers remains firmly in a bench role behind Russell Westbrook, though he's consistently seeing around 20 minutes a night. Since the break, he's finished in double digits three times, with his last performance dating back to March 10 against the Timberwolves, when he scored 11 points in 18 minutes of action.
Rivers amassed 23 points (9-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 140-112 victory over Memphis. Rivers got hot off the bench, scoring a season-high 23 points. Despite scoring in double figures in his last two outings, Rivers has struggled to find a consistent role this season. He is well outside the top 200 for the season and really serves as just a points streamer, and even that is a stretch based on his unproductive season thus far.
Rivers notched 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench during Monday's 123-112 win over the Knicks. Rivers ended January on a strong note with five straight games with 10 or more points, but he has reached that mark just thrice in February and only once in his last five games. Neither Russell Westbrook (thumb) nor Eric Gordon (knee) played in this game so that boosted Rivers' playing time, and that could very well be the case again when the Rockets host the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Rivers finished with 14 points (3-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three boards and one block in 29 minutes of a 127-91 loss to the Suns on Friday. Rivers still came off the bench despite Russell Westbrook (rest) sitting out the second night of a back-to-back game. Rivers managed to finish second on his team in scoring despite not having the most efficient night. He'll likely come off the bench when his team returns to action against the Jazz on Sunday.
Rivers (illness) provided 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 125-110 win over the Hornets. Rivers missed Monday's practice due to an illness but was able to give it a go in this one. He has reached double figures in scoring in seven of his last 10 appearances. Nevertheless, Rivers is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
