Shamet finished with zero points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 win over the Thunder. Shamet had earned 20-plus minutes in 21 straight games prior to the first two tilts in March, in which he has combined for three points in 29 minutes. The recent addition of Reggie Jackson, who saw 25 minutes in this one, provides another obstacle to Shamet earning substantial playing time on a nightly basis. Still, he'll look to bounce back during Thursday's matchup versus the Rockets.
Shamet amassed 19 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and two rebounds in 47 minutes in Thursday's 141-133 double overtime loss versus the Celtics. With Patrick Beverley (groin) out for the fourth straight game, Shamet started at point guard and received huge minutes in the loss. Paul George (hamstring) also exited this game after only playing 14 minutes and wasn't able to return. With these two starters missing, Shamet recorded his second straight effort of 19 points. The 22-year-old has now scored 10 points or more in 13 of his last 15 games. If Beverley or George miss any time following the All-Star break, look for Shamet to continue producing solid scoring numbers.
Shamet is starting Thursday's game against Boston, the voice of the Celtics, Sean Grande, reports. Shamet gets the nod at point guard with Patrick Beverley (groin) ruled out for Thursday's tilt. The Wichita State product is averaging 12.1 points and 2.6 assists over his last seven contests and figures to shoulder a heavy workload in Boston.
Shamet scored 19 points (7-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt) with one rebound in 36 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 110-103 loss to the 76ers. Facing the team that drafted him 26th overall in 2018, Shamet showed off his long-range marksmanship. The 22-year-old guard has been bouncing between the bench and the starting five since the beginning of January, but his court time has remained fairly consistent in either role, and he's averaging 11.5 points, 2.7 threes, 2.4 boards and 2.2 assists in 30.3 minutes a game over the last 19 contests.
Shamet isn't starting Tuesday's game at Philadelphia. The 2018 first-round pick started the last two games with Patrick Beverley (groin) sidelined, but Lou Williams will open Tuesday's game at the point for the Clippers. Shamet is averaging 10.2 points, 1.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 29.8 minutes over the last five games and should still see significant run off the bench.
