Hield provided 22 points (6-15 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds and one block in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 125-121 win over the Trail Blazers. Hield came off the bench but played more minutes than all but one of Sacramento's starters in the contest. That was partly due to the early exit of Harrison Barnes (foot injury) and De'Aaron Fox (ejection), but Hield also earned his time on the court by leading all Kings scorers with 22 points. Most of the sharpshooter's point total came by way of five three-pointers, and Hield trails only Stephen Curry in total treys converted on the season.
Hield accumulated 21 points (7-15 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Monday's 102-94 loss to Philadelphia. Hield trailed only De'Aaron Fox (23 points) for high-scoring honors among Kings players Monday, and he converted five of the team's seven three-pointers in the loss. Hield also tied for the team lead with nine rebounds. He has come off the bench in all but two games this season, but Hield's 16.8 points and 4.2 three-pointers per contest are narrowly superior to the marks he posted as a full-time starter last season.
Hield added 22 points (8-14 FG, 6-10 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal during Monday's win over the Pistons. Coming off the bench after two straight starts didn't slow down the former Oklahoma standout. Hield drilled six threes en route to a team high offensively, as this was also the guard's fifth time reaching the 20-point mark. Hield has converted six or more threes in four different matchups this season and is currently shooting 39.4 percent from deep.
Hield played 30 minutes in Monday's loss to Phoenix, tallying 14 points (5-16 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot. Tyrese Haliburton was unable to play due to a back injury, and the Kings elected to move Hield into the starting lineup in his place. Hield struggled with his shot throughout the contest, ultimately logging about the same amount of court time as he has throughout the campaign as a reserve. Despite moving to a sixth-man role this season, Hield is enjoying a strong campaign overall, posting per-game averages of 17.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists. His 48 three-pointers trail only Stephen Curry's 52 for the NBA lead.
Hield will start Monday's game against the Suns, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. Hield takes the place of Tyrese Haliburton, who was ruled out due to a back injury. The Oklahoma product has been a reliable scorer off the bench for Sacramento so far, averaging 17.7 points and 4.5 made threes through 10 games in 2021.
