White had 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 Game 5 loss to the Nuggets. White didn't post a terrible stat line, but he was outplayed by Denver's Jamal Murray for the second straight contest. Moreover, foul trouble convinced coach Gregg Popovich to take White off the floor early in the third quarter, after which the score was lopsided. White will look to help his team stay alive in Thursday's Game 6.
White totaled 36 points (15-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block across 33 minutes in the Spurs' win over the Nuggets on Thursday. White exploded for a game-high 36 points in Thursday's win, knocking down an efficient 15-21 field goals and piling up solid counting numbers across the board. The second-year guard has been the linchpin of the Spurs' playoff success thus far, and he's averaged 23.0 points through three games en route to a 2-1 series lead over the Nuggets.
White finished with 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 loss to the Nuggets. White has played well across the first two playoff games, but he did finish with three turnovers versus zero assists in this one. As the team's top perimeter defender, White is likely to continue spending a lot of time and energy shadowing Denver's Jamal Murray. Furthermore, White has also been shooting the lights out, racking up 33 points on 14-of-21 from the field through these first two tilts.
White provided 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 105-94 win over the Mavericks. White was superb, missing only two shot attempts while taking care of possession (zero turnovers). He's easily the best backcourt defender on the team, which combined with his steady playmaking and capable perimeter shooting figures to keep him very involved during the playoffs.
White posted five points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 18 minutes in the Spurs' 113-85 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday. With the Spurs down big by halftime, White and the rest of his first-unit mates saw limited opportunity. The second-year guard's modest point total Wednesday wasn't strictly tied in to abbreviated playing time, however, as White has seen a notable drop in production recently. The 24-year-old has scored in single digits in six of the last eight games overall while shooting 30.0 percent or worse in those contests, including an 0-for-10 tally against the Hornets on March 26.
