Gordon scored 19 points (7-21 FG, 3-9 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with four rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Monday's 113-102 loss to the Clippers.
Despite tying for the team lead with 19 points, Gordon was not very efficient from the floor for the second straight game. In his last two games, the guard is shooting a total of 30.0 percent on 20.0 shots. In the four games before that, Gordon was shooting 47.4 percent, including 35.0 percent from three. Still, he is averaging 21.2 points in his last seven games since returning to the starting lineup. However, with James Harden (hamstring) possibly returning later this week, Gordon's current run as a starter may be coming to an end.
Gordon scored 30 points (11-23 FG, 5-12 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go with five rebounds, three assists and one block across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 121-112 win against Portland.
Much like Chris Paul, Gordon has performed well in the absence of James Harden's dominating presence in the Houston offense. On Wednesday. the guard scored 30 points for the second time in his last four games. Since returning to the lineup after Harden's injury, Gordon has averaged 23.2 points in five starts. The catalyst to Gordon's consistent scoring as of late is his game from beyond the arc. Averaging 10.0 shots from three in his last five games, he is converting on 34.0 percent of them. While his efficiency is about average, it is in keeping with the bombs away approach that he and the Rockets offense employs. Averaging 9.5 shots from long range for the season for 34.2 percent, Gordon is not afraid to keep firing away with a high volume of three-pointers.
Gordon pitched in 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt), seven assists and three rebounds across 34 minutes in Saturday's 108-101 loss to the Pistons.
A dose of Avery Bradley defense helped subdue Gordon, who'd racked up 30 points in the Rockets' shootout loss to the Warriors on Thursday. The veteran was still relatively efficient with the shots he did take, but his 13 attempts were a far cry from the 24 he'd launched against Golden State. Despite the slight downturn Saturday, Gordon should continue seeing elevated usage on the majority of nights while he retains a first-unit role due to James Harden's hamstring injury.
Gordon contributed 30 points (12-24 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, three steals and one block across 38 minutes during a 124-114 loss to the Warriors on Thursday.
Gordon's 30 points marked a game high as he got another start with James Harden (hamstring) sidelined. He reached the 30-point mark for the second time this season and the seven dimes matched a season high. Gordon will likely continue to get a large workload for as long as Harden is out of action.
Gordon started at shooting guard and supplied 17 points (5-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six assists, five rebounds and two steals across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 116-98 win over the Magic.
During his season and a half with Houston, Gordon has mainly acted as a spot-up shooter from the outside, but he could be forced to take on more play-making responsibilities with James Harden (hamstring) set to miss at least the next two weeks. It's perhaps no coincidence that Gordon delivered his second-best assist total of the season while starting in place of Harden, who was unavailable Wednesday for the first time all season. Expecting five-plus-assist outings from Gordon on a regular basis may be too much to ask, but the added usage he'll see with Harden out should allow Gordon to increase his 2.1-per-game average for the season.
