Pinson tallied 43 points (17-29 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five assists, four rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot in the win Thursday over the Red Claws. It was easily a career-high for Pinson, but Long Island needed the points in the worst way given they only had eight active players available. Pinson has seen his minutes trend upperwards as of late, averaging 35.2 across 19 games. In those contests, he's putting together some well-rounded numbers, averaging 19.9 points, 6.6 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.9 blocks.
Pinson will be available for Saturday's game against Milwaukee. The rookie out of North Carolina has done most of his damage in the G League this season, but he'll have a chance to see a few minutes Saturday with Allen Crabbe out and D'Angelo Russell sitting out to rest. To date, Pinson has appeared in only four games at the NBA level.
Pinson scored 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with 10 assists, nine rebounds and a steal in the win Wednesday over Windy City. Pinson hasn't been a dynamic scorer, but Wednesday's flirtation with a triple-double is a reminder of his multi-category capabilities. Through 15 games, the two-way player is averaging 18.1 points, 6.3 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 0.9 steals, but his 2.8 turnovers offsets some of that potential.
Pinson finished Thursday's loss to the Charge with 13 points (4-11 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, two blocks and a steal. The rookie forward has been a consistent scoring threat to begin his professional career, averaging 18.3 points through 12 games, but it's his ability to add in other categories that is particularly intriguing. Pinson's 6.3 assists and 5.3 rebounds to go along with the aforementioned per game points average points isn't something to dismiss and makes him a viable mid tier option for fantasy owners.
