Pritchard had 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 117-112 win over the Clippers. The 23-year-old hadn't made multiple three-pointers in a game since drilling six Feb. 11, so it was a welcome shooting display for the Celtics. Pritchard was averaging 5.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 32.4 percent from the field over the previous six games, so perhaps Tuesday's game marks the end of his slump.
Pritchard scored eight points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with one rebound and seven assists across 23 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Nuggets. Pritchard played more than 20 minutes for the fourth time in his last seven games. Though he didn't provide a standout line, he put up the second-best assist total of his rookie season and his most since Jan. 4. While he's had splashes of production, Pritchard has scored in double digits only twice in that same seven-game span and failed to post more than five rebounds or two assists prior to Tuesday's effort. Given that he provides hardly any defensive statistics, Pritchard is playing largely empty minutes from a fantasy perspective.
Pritchard posted 20 points (6-10 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist over 29 minutes in Thursday's 120-106 win over Toronto. The rookie drained a career-high six three-pointers, often off of sweet assists from Jayson Tatum. Toronto made a point of double-teaming both Tatum and Jaylen Brown, which created lots of open corner threes for FastPP and Semi Ojeleye (24 points). Maybe more important for Pritchard is that fellow point guard backup Jeff Teague received a DNP-Coach's Decision. A case can be made that Pritchard is, so far, the third-best rookie in the Association, after LaMelo Ball and Tyrese Haliburton. Expect more big minutes from Pritchard on Friday as the C's rest Kemba Walker for the back-half of the back-to-back.
Pritchard (knee) delivered eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four boards, two assists and no turnovers over 19 minutes in Friday's 119-115 win over the Clippers. After missing six games due to a sprained knee, the rookie picked up exactly where he left off before the injury. He provided efficient scoring and wise decision-making that belies his rookie status. With Jeff Teague continuing to struggle (0-4 from the field Friday), Pritchard should be Boston's primary backup point guard moving forward. Through 15 games, the Oregon product is shooting 44.2 percent from behind the arc.
Pritchard (knee) is available Friday against the Clippers. Pritchard hasn't played since Jan. 22 while recovering from a sprained knee. His availability is especially impactful Friday, as the Celtics will be without Jaylen Brown (knee).
