Mclemore finished with just three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and two rebounds in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 victory over Boston. McLemore was a non-factor in the victory, connecting on just one three-pointer and adding very little else. McLemore is nothing more than a three-point streamer and nights such as this certainly don't help his cause. He is only someone to consider on low-volume days if you need a quick boost to your three-point category.
McLemore finished with 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one board, one assist, and one steal in 25 minutes of a 127-91 loss to the Suns on Friday. McLemore struggled from deep for the second consecutive game but still managed to finish third on the team in scoring in the contest. The game got out of hand quickly as the Suns jumped out to a 20-point first quarter lead. McLemore and the Rockets will try to put this one behind them with the Jazz coming to town on Sunday.
McLemore put up 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-9 3Pt) to go with four assists, two rebounds and one block in 37 minutes Tuesday in the Rockets' 125-110 win over the Hornets. With Russell Westbrook (thumb) sitting out, McLemore slotted into the starting backcourt alongside James Harden and acted as little more than a spot-up shooter for most of the night. McLemore at least converted his three-point attempts at a good enough rate to bring value for those that streamed him, but his playing time and usage rate will be capped if Westbrook is cleared to play in the Rockets' next game Thursday versus the Lakers.
McLemore is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against Charlotte, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. McLemore will replace the injured Russell Westbrook (thumb) in the starting five Tuesday. Over 17 previous starts this season, McLemore averaged 13.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 26.9 minutes per game.
McLemore mustered up 22 points (6-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-8 FT) and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 117-109 win over the Pelicans. McLemore scored at least 20 for the sixth time through 49 appearances this season, and he has canned at least four treys 14 times as well. McLemore doesn't offer much beyond scoring and threes though, so he's best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
