Mykhailiuk produced 25 points (9-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 136-103 win over the Hawks. Mykhailiuk finished with a career high in scoring while matching his career high in made threes. He has scored at least 20 in consecutive contests and has reached double figures in four straight. With Luke Kennard (knee) expected to remain sidelined for at least another couple weeks, Mykhailiuk seems like a good bet to continue earning ample minutes, mostly thanks to his ability to space the floor from beyond the arc.
Mykhailiuk scored a season-high 21 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding five assists and a rebound in 29 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 116-103 win over the Celtics. Derrick Rose got the start in his place, but Mykhailiuk still delivered one of his best performances of the season from the second unit. The second-year guard has scored in double digits in 11 of the last 14 games, averaging 11.7 points, 2.9 threes, 2.4 assists, 2.0 boards and 1.1 steals over that stretch.
Mykhailiuk is not listed in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Celtics, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports. It appears the Pistons will opt to put Derrick Rose in the starting five, sending Mykhailiuk to the bench. In 24 games off the pine this season, he's averaging 5.6 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists.
Mykhailiuk put up 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals across 34 minutes Monday in the Pistons' 117-110 overtime win over the Pelicans. Nothing about Mykhailiuk's line jumps off the page, but he ticked off every segment of the box score except the blocks category, which translated into a productive fantasy night. The second-year wing has now started in 11 of the Pistons' last 13 games, averaging 11.0 points (on 39.8 percent shooting), 2.8 three-pointers, 2.2 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 27.8 minutes. Mykhailiuk should have a good shot at maintaining that level of production for the foreseeable future, especially after coach Dwane Casey floated out the possibility earlier Monday that Luke Kennard (knee) might remain out through the All-Star break.
Mykhailiuk posted 12 points (4-12 FG, 4-10 3Pt) one board, five assists and one steal in 35 minutes of a 115-113 win against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. Mykhailiuk once again did all his damage from deep, as he took just two attempts from inside the arc in the game. The second year guard hasn't made a field goal from inside the arc in his last three games, but he's attempting enough threes to compensate. He'll have a rematch with the Cavaliers on Thursday.
