Bell supplied 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-4 FT), six rebounds and one block across 12 minutes during Golden State's 110-102 win over the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday. The 23-year-old has now upped his scoring totals over that of the previous contest in each of the last two games, despite seeing minutes in the teens. Bell's scoring total was a postseason high, and he's shooting an impressive 72.7 percent over the first three games of the Finals. The 2017 second-round pick is likely to play a similar complementary frontcourt role during Friday's potentially decisive Game 4.
Bell totaled three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes during Saturday's 115-86 victory over the Rockets. Bell came off the bench Saturday providing a nice spark and seeing more court time that starter Kevon Looney. Bell has not been much of a factor in the series but was able to have an impact with his energy and athleticism. The Warriors have needed some additional efforts from their role players with Andre Iguodala (knee) on the sidelines and Bell was the go-to-guy in this game. Game Seven will be in Houston on Monday and Bell will need to be ready to go if called upon.
Bell managed two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal during Tuesday's 119-79 loss at Utah. Bell wasn't an offensive threat Tuesday but did add at least one tally in almost every statistical category. The former Oregon Duck capped off his rookie campaign by averaging 4.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 57 games played.
Bell compiled just six points (3-6 FG), but added seven rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 111-107 victory over the Thunder. Bell came off the bench but saw more playing time than Zaza Pachulia, who started the game. Kevon Looney (illness) was resting up for this one, and this likely afforded Bell some additional playing time. Despite having upside in a number of categories, Bell remains merely a role player off the bench, limiting his ability to put up any consistent value.
Bell will come off the bench for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports. With Draymond Green (illness) back in the lineup, Bell will head to his usual role off the pine. In that role, Bell has posted 4.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 12.2 minutes.
