Acy's production was similar to his career stats, as he was a consistent single-digit scorer and rebounder for most games in 2017-18. The former second-round pick did though pour in a season-high 21 points on Apr. 7 at Chicago. Acy is set to become a free agent this July.
Acy provided 21 points (7-14 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist across 23 minutes in Saturday's 124-96 win over the Bulls.
Acy's scoring total and number of made three-pointers were both career highs, as he spearheaded a franchise-record 24 made threes for the Nets. The floor-spacing big man simply kept chucking away, taking just one shot from in front of the arc. It was Acy's first double-digit scoring effort in four April games, and he encouragingly logged over 20 minutes for the third straight contest. Acy has proven to be an excellent three-pointer shooter overall this season -- as evidenced by his 52.2 percent success rate from distance -- but Saturday's usage level from deep was completely unprecedented.
Acy supplied nine points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 111-105 loss to the Hornets.
Acy filled up the stat sheet despite earning the least amount of playing time among the nine Nets who saw the floor. He has combined to play 45 minutes over the last two games, this after an eight-game in stretch in which he failed to log 20 minutes once. The 27-year-old forward will likely continue to lose out on some opportunities to the team's younger players over the final 10 regular season games, but Acy remains a hard-working glue guy capable of cobbling together a decent line in fairly limited minutes.
Acy will shift back to a bench role for Thursday's game against the Hornets, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
With Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) out, Acy had picked up a few starts prior to the All-Star break. While Hollis-Jefferson remains sidelined, the Nets are going with a small lineup that features Spencer Dinwiddie, D'Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll and Jarrett Allen. That sends Acy to the bench and could mean a few less minutes. Acy averaged just 8.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 steals in his last three games despite getting a starter's workload, so his demotion should knock him off the fantasy radar for most leagues.
Acy accounted for eight points (3-8 FG, 2-7 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block in 31 minutes during Monday's 114-101 loss to the Clippers.
Acy drew the start with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and Caris LeVert (knee) sidelined through the All-Star break, while Joe Harris shifted back to a reserve role. Acy's ability to cover multiple positions and adapt offensively has helped him put together some solid showings lately, and he followed up Saturday's career high in minutes (40 versus the Pelicans) by handing out a career high in assists and matching his career high in steals in this one. Expect Acy to once again see ample playing time in Wednesday's matchup against the Pacers.
