Bagley collected 24 points (11-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Sunday's 127-126 loss to Charlotte. Bagley continued his recent run of strong play, notching his ninth straight game with double figures in the scoring column. Sunday's performance was his fourth double-double during that span and his 10th overall this season. Bagley is enjoying a solid campaign with per-game averages of 14.1 points and 7.6 boards, though his 54.1 free-throw percentage dings his overall fantasy appeal.
Bagley scored 19 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with five rebounds and one steal in the Kings' 140-121 loss to the Knicks on Thursday. Bagley had a great first half, scoring 16 points and grabbing four rebounds, but couldn't follow it up in the second as he was held to just three points and two shot attempts. The forward has been playing well of late, averaging 17.8 points and 8.2 rebounds over his last six games. Bagley played only 22 minutes because the Kings didn't have much of a chance to come back in the fourth, but with Jabari Parker (COVID-19 protocols) and Hassan Whiteside (COVID-19 protocols) both out of the lineup, Bagley should see some more action in upcoming games.
Bagley recorded 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 127-118 loss to the Nets. Tuesday marked Bagley's third double-double in four games. The forward has picked up his work on the glass lately. Over his past seven appearances, he's averaged 8.6 rebounds and hasn't dipped below six in a single game during this stretch. In his previous five games, he had averaged just 4.2 boards.
Bagley recorded 12 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block during Sacramento's 128-115 loss to Milwaukee on Sunday. Bagley had a quieter game Sunday after three straight games of at least 19 points. The Kings welcomed back Richaun Holmes (knee) to the frontcourt after a three-game absence, but his presence didn't affect Bagley's recent minutes and usage. The forward has stayed healthy this year, which was a big question mark coming into the season, as he has only missed two games due to a sore calf. The 2018 second overall pick has shown glimpses of dominance during his three years in the NBA, but he has lacked the consistency necessary to take his game to the next level. Bagley is averaging 13.5 points and 7.6 rebounds per game this season and shooting a career-high 39.2 percent from three.
Bagley produced 26 points (10-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 35 minutes in Saturday's 122-114 loss to the Bulls. Bagley absorbed output usually reserved for Harrison Barnes and Richaun Holmes, and put together an excellent total in the loss. Hassan Whiteside will continue to push the frontcourt for playing time, but Bagley has earned the starting role in his third season. His job is safe if he can stay off the injury report.
