Prince went for 16 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 30 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 122-107 win over the Pistons on Wednesday. After making a spot start Larry Nance (wrist) Monday, Prince was moved back to the bench in a move that benefitted all involved. For Prince, it was his most complete game since being acquired by the Cavs a week ago while the guy who got the start, Darius Garland, added 14 points and the Cavs got the win.
Prince will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pistons, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports. The 26-year-old received the spot started Monday in place of Larry Nance (wrist), who remains sidelined, but Darius Garland will rejoin the starting five for the Cavs. Prince is averaging 11.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals in 25.0 minutes through four games since being acquired from the Nets.
Prince is starting Monday's game against the Lakers, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports. Prince gets the start for the injured Larry Nance, who is out with a sprained wrist. Prince has finished in double figures in scoring in two of his four starts this season but faces a tough matchup Monday evening against the defending champs.
Prince recorded 14 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Friday's 123-113 win over the Nets. Prince has been excellent in his first two games with the Cavaliers, averaging 15.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in 27.0 minutes. However, he's shooting an unsustainable 57.1 percent from the field and 62.5 percent from three. Once his shooting comes back down to earth, his fantasy relevance will likely be close to gone. Prince is unlikely to find 30 minutes per game given the wealth of options at forward for the Cavaliers, including Isaac Okoro, Cedi Osman and Larry Nance. Dylan Windler should also see minutes on the wing.
Prince played 32 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Cavaliers' 147-135 win over the Nets in double overtime, contributing 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block. Both Prince and Jarrett Allen made their Cleveland debuts against their former squad following last week's four-team trade that sent James Harden to Brooklyn. The new recruits didn't need much time to get acclimated to their new situation, as both Prince and Allen logged 30-plus minutes as members of head coach J.B. Bickerstaff's eight-man rotation. However, the two extra periods inflated Prince's playing time, and his minutes are likely to dip further once the Cavaliers return Darius Garland (shoulder), Kevin Love (calf) and Dylan Windler (hand) from injuries. The 26-year-old is best viewed as an option in 14-team or 16-team formats rather than standard leagues.
