Caldwell-Pope tallied 34 points (12-20 FG, 8-14 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 38 minutes in Saturday's 113-108 win over the Kings. KCP was incandescent from the field, posting a season-high number of three-pointers and tying the career high he'd set last season against the Pelicans while playing for the Pistons. The fifth-year guard recorded exactly half of his game-high scoring total in a prolific third period for the Lakers, who totaled 37 points during the quarter. Factoring in Saturday's performance, he's now shot at least 60.0 percent in three straight games, and five of the last six overall. He's been just as hot from distance during that stretch, draining at least 50.0 percent of his three-point attempts in five contests during the latter span.
Caldwell-Pope poured in 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and added six rebounds, two assists and three steals across 30 minutes in Friday's 124-102 win over the Mavericks. KCP came out of the post-All-Star-break gate firing on all cylinders, posting his fourth game with at least 60.0 percent shooting over the last five contests in the process. The 25-year-old's hot streak is an unexpected but welcome sight, considering he's endured multiple rough patches from the field this season. Factoring in Friday's production, Caldwell-Pope is draining 47.8 percent of his attempts in eight February contests, which easily qualifies as his best monthly figure in that category this season.
Caldwell-Pope tallied 17 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals across 41 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 loss to the Timberwolves. KCP logged a team-high amount of minutes and drew even with Ivica Zubac for the team lead in rebounds as well. The 24-year-old has gone through some rough patches of poor shooting this season, but he'll head into the All-Star break riding a wave of cautious optimism. Factoring in Thursday's production, Caldwell-Pope has scored in double digits in six of the last nine contests, and he's shot at least 62.5 percent in three of the past four games while draining multiple threes in each. If he can pick up where he left off on the offensive end following the upcoming layoff, the fifth-year guard's stock will bump up a notch across all formats, considering he's also averaging career bests in rebounds (4.9) and steals (1.6).
Caldwell-Pope supplied 20 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's 106-81 win over the Thunder. Caldwell-Pope's scoring total paced the Lakers and was his highest since Jan. 15. The 24-year-old's 70.0 percent success rate was also his best of the campaign and was a nice bounce-back from a seven-game stretch where he'd shot just 38.1 percent. KCP's production continue to fluctuate pretty significantly, as he's tallied single-digit point totals in four of the last eight contests. He does have the ability to make some solid contributions on the glass on occasion, as he's now hauled in between five and seven boards in four of the last seven games and is averaging a career-high 4.7 rebounds.
Caldwell-Pope, who posted five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes in Friday's 108-103 win over the Bulls, is averaging 6.5 points (on 26.6 percent shooting), 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 24.0 minutes in two games since returning from a two-game absence from an Achilles injury. The 24-year-old has notably struggled with his shot since his return, which has led to his first instance of back-to-back single-digit scoring tallies since Oct. 27-28. Caldwell-Pope has been over the 20-point mark only once since Dec. 12, as well, but he came into Friday's game with the second-highest shooting percentage (41.3) of his career, a figure that includes a career-best 35.7 percent success rate from behind the arc. Despite some occasional scoring fluctuations, he remains a reliable source of scoring and was also averaging a career-high 4.8 rebounds coming into Friday's contest.
