Holiday scored 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt) while adding seven assists, three rebounds and three steals in 32 minutes during Thursday's 119-102 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3.
It was actually his quietest game of the series so far, as Nikola Mirotic's red-hot shooting become the focus of the Pelicans' perimeter offense instead. Holiday's still averaging 23.3 points, 6.0 assists, 4.3 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.7 three-pointers through three games, and his numbers will likely bounce back Saturday in Game 4 as the team looks to complete the sweep.
Holiday posted 33 points (14-24 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and one steal across 38 minutes during New Orleans' 111-102 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.
Holiday got a fast start with 12 points in the first quarter and kept coming, capping off his night with a key three-pointer late to give the Pelicans just enough cushion to take a surprising 2-0 lead in the series. The veteran guard's scoring total served as his postseason career-high figure, and he's now shot an outstanding 54.5 percent (24-for-44) from the field over the first two games against the Blazers. Given his performance thus far, Holiday figures to once again be pivotal to New Orleans' success as the series shifts to their home floor for Game 3 on Thursday.
Holiday totaled 21 points (10-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 39 minutes in New Orleans' 97-95 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.
Holiday was red-hot from the field, checking in with the second-highest scoring total on the Pelicans. However, it was a defensive play that helped ensure the Game 1 upset, as he stuffed a layup attempt by Portland's Pat Connaughton with 6.3 seconds remaining and New Orleans clinging to a 95-92 advantage. Holiday's offensive contributions will undoubtedly continue to be as essential to the team's chances of success in the postseason as they were in the regular season, when he posted a career-high 19.0 points on a career-best 49.4 percent shooting.
Holiday had 23 points (11-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 122-98 win over the Spurs.
Holiday was efficient as a scorer, but he did tally nearly as many turnovers (six) as assists. He'll have his hands full defensively in round one versus the Trail Blazers, in particular with Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Still, Holiday should be expected to deliver solid stats on both ends, as he is among the most well-rounded contributors at the guard position.
Holiday contributed 25 points (10-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds, four steals and one block across 40 minutes in Saturday's 126-120 win over the Warriors.
The 27-year-old continues to play an integral part in the Pelicans' playoff push, as he's now eclipsed the 20-point mark in four of the last six contests. Holiday has continued to supplement his stellar shooting and scoring efforts with strong work across the rest of the stat sheet, hauling in between five and 11 rebounds in five of the last six games and dishing out six to 11 assists in each of those contests, as well. Moreover, he's now racked up multiple steals in five straight, leading to some very fantasy-friendly lines during the stretch run. With New Orleans still looking to secure their postseason spot in an extremely tight Western Conference, he projects for similarly elevated usage over the final two games of the season.
