Prince finished with seven points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, two steals and one assist across 29 minutes Sunday in the Nets' 110-107 victory over the Bulls. Prince had been moved to the bench in Kenny Atkinson's final game at the helm Friday versus the Spurs, and the forward continued to back up Wilson Chandler while interim coach Jacque Vaughn was on the bench for the first time Sunday. While the benching may seem like a demotion on the surface, Prince has logged 30 and 29 minutes, respectively, in his first two games as a reserve -- right on par with his season-long average (29.0 per game). Rather than his playing time, the major concern with Prince is his game-to-game inconsistency.
Prince will come off the bench for Friday's action against the Spurs, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. Coach Kenny Atkinson will opt to give Wilson Chandler the starting nod. Friday's game will be the first time all season that Prince has come off the bench.
Prince registered 15 points (6-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and five rebounds in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 118-79 loss against the Grizzlies. Prince was coming off a two-point effort against the Celtics, but he bounced back admirably and was one of Brooklyn's main scoring threats despite the loss. The small forward has now scored in double figures in six of his last seven games, and he is averaging 11.4 points despite an ugly 37.7 percent from the field during that stretch.
Prince posted two points (1-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 19 minutes during Tuesday's 129-120 overtime victory against the Celtics. Prince had one of his worst performances of the season Tuesday. He was ice cold shooting the ball, plus he committed three turnovers and four fouls in only 19 minutes. He'll look to bounce back Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
Prince posted 14 points (5-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one block across 32 minutes during Monday's 106-105 victory over the Pacers. Prince continues to launch from beyond the arc, and Monday marked his 22nd game this season with at least a trio of triples. He's currently 19th in made threes (127) and has the seventh-highest three-point attempt rate (.587) of players who have seen at least 1,500 minutes.
