Mann recorded one assist over five minutes during Thursday's 113-103 win over the Suns. Mann was averaging 25.0 minutes, 13.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game over a recent nine-game stretch, but the return of Patrick Beverley (knee) and arrival of Rajon Rondo have eradicated those minutes. Beverley (18.5) and Rondo (17.0) have seen the majority of the backup guard minutes over the last two games, while Mann (7.5) has completely fallen out of the rotation.
Mann turned in 18 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes in Thursday's 101-94 loss to the Nuggets. Although Mann continues to come off the bench, he's one of the Clippers' rising stars. The Florida State product has recorded double-digit shot attempts in five consecutive games and will be a crucial member of the supporting cast as the team makes their playoff push.
Mann produced 23 points (10-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds and an assist across 29 minutes in Saturday's 122-112 win over the Sixers. Mann became one of the hottest adds off the waiver wire last week after helping the Clippers spur a huge comeback to defeat the Hawks, and he hasn't let up since. Although they recently added Rajon Rondo to join Reggie Jackson and Patrick Beverley to their stable of guards, the Clippers have a game-changing talent in Mann, and they will need to make room for him in the rotation. His 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame makes him a suitable substitute at either wing position, but he appears to be most at home in the backcourt, where he is playing with noticeable confidence.
Mann will come off the bench Saturday against the Sixers, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports. The 24-year-old started Thursday and had 10 points, 12 rebounds and three assists but will move back to the bench with Kawhi Leonard (foot) rejoining the lineup. Mann should still see plenty of minutes as a reserve for the Clippers.
Mann recorded 10 points (3-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Thursday's 98-85 win over the Spurs. With Kawhi Leonard (foot) and Marcus Morris (calf) sidelined, Mann stepped into the starting lineup and was able to gobble up 12 rebounds in a game where both teams shot under 41.0 percent from the field. Mann has proven able to put up decent numbers when inserted into the starting five. Across four starts this season, he's averaged 11.8 points on 46.9 percent shooting, 7.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 32.5 minutes. Mann's emergence as a trustworthy rotation player is also likely what's cutting into Luke Kennard's playing time.
