Cauley-Stein logged three points (1-9 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot across 18 minutes in Saturday's 132-112 loss to the Rockets.
Cauley-Stein had an awful night on Saturday and was benched in favor of Marvin Bagley down the stretch. It's a surprising regression from the King's starting center. His improvement is evident in his numbers this season, and he's fared well against some of the league's best big men. His job isn't in any danger at this point, but he'll face another tough test against Steven Adams and the Thunder on Monday.
Cauley-Stein once again turned in a stellar effort on the boards on his way to a second straight double-double. The 25-year-old's scoring has fluctuated to an extent, but he's still posted a double-digit point tally in all but one game this season. Cauley-Stein is also taking double-digit shot attempts in the majority of games, keeping him in the conversation for a double-double any time he takes the floor. Factoring in Monday's production, he's averaging career bests in scoring (16.5) , rebounds (8.6) and shooting percentage (56.7).
Cauley-Stein logged 12 points (6-14 FG), 12 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 25 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 loss to the Lakers.
Cauley-Stein has shown marked signs of improvement, and that's one reason why the Kings are over.500. The fourth-year Kentucky product is outpacing previous numbers with career-high averages of16.8 points and 8.2 rebounds across 13 games this season. Saturday's game was the third time in four games where he committed five fouls, so that's an area that needs work.
Cauley-Stein finished with 25 points (11-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, and one assist in 28 minutes during Friday's 121-110 victory over the Timberwolves.
Cauley-Stein poured in a team-high 25 points Friday, helping the Kings to a 7-and-5 record on the season. He has now scored in double-digits in 11 of his 12 games while contributing solid rebound numbers, complemented by some handy out-of-position steals. Despite some conjecture as to his role coming into the season, Cauley-Stein has affirmed himself as the big to own in Sacramento.
Cauley-Stein almost matched his scoring total from the last three games combined, a stretch during which he'd posted a total of 28 points. His point tally Wednesday drew even with that of Buddy Hield's for the team lead, and it also served as his second-best figure of the season. The 25-year-old has taken yet another step forward this season, especially on the offensive end, where he's averaging a career-best 16.5 points on a career-high 12.2 shot attempts per contest. However, he's also better than ever on the boards, as his 8.2 rebounds also represent a new high-water mark.
