Mirotic supplied 12 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 37 minutes during New Orleans' 113-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series.
Mirotic's offensive usage took a hit on a night when Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday combined for 47 shot attempts. He was efficient with the shots he did take, scoring in double digits for the third time in the series and bouncing back from a nightmarish 14.3 percent shooting effort in Game 4. Mirotic was a welcome in-season addition to a Pelicans squad dealing with the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to a catastrophic Achilles injury, averaging 14.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal across 29.1 minutes over 30 games (11 starts).
Mirotic supplied 18 points (7-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and two steals across 39 minutes during New Orleans' 121-116 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series.
Mirotic fouled out with 2:43 remaining, but not before putting together a markedly better offensive effort than the one he'd generated in Game 1. The floor-spacing big man improved his shooting percentage from Saturday's 33.3 percent to 43.8 percent, while also doubling up his scoring total. Mirotic does remain in somewhat of a slump from distance, however, having shot between 25.0 and Tuesday's 37.5 percent in the last three postseason games. He'll look to up his contributions on that regard when the Pelicans fight for their first win of the series in Friday's Game 3.
Mirotic finished with nine points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during New Orleans' 123-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 1 of their Western Conference second-round playoff series.
Mirotic couldn't get get going on a night when he posted his worst shooting percentage (33.3) of the five postseason games thus far. The 27-year-old big also put up single-digit shot attempts for the second straight playoff game, although his reduced playing time Sunday played a part. His work on the boards did remain solid, and Mirotic has now hauled in at least eight rebounds in each postseason contest to date. He'll look to pick his scoring back up when the Pelicans attempt to even the series in Game 2 on Tuesday.
Mirotic scored 30 points (12-15 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, three steals, two assists and a block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 119-102 win over the Trail Blazers.
For the third straight game in the series, a different Pelican dropped 30 or more points on the Blazers, putting New Orleans on the brink of a surprising sweep. Mirotic will have trouble staying this hot Saturday in Game 4, but he's scored at least 16 points in all three contests while shooting 47.8 percent (11-for-23) from three-point range, giving him a solid floor of production.
Mirotic generated 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks across 39 minutes during New Orleans' 111-102 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.
Mirotic continues to thrive in his starting role, one in which he's displayed an encouraging level of consistency in dating back to the stretch run of the regular season. As far as the current series is concerned, the floor-spacing big man has produced a pair of 16-point efforts while shooting a solid 46.2 percent, including 41.2 percent from three-point range. The 27-year-old has been just as impressive on the boards and on defense, averaging 9.5 rebounds and 3.0 blocks over the first pair of contests against the Trail Blazers, as well.
