Hield delivered 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals across 28 minutes in a 96-83 win over the Rockets on Wednesday.
The second-year guard thus wrapped up his season with yet another strong effort off the bench, a trend that persisted for the majority of the season. Hield typically enjoyed a robust allotment of minutes despite his second-unit role, leading to solid averages of 13.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals across 25.3 minutes over 80 games, 13 of those starts. The 24-year-old will likely battle fellow young sharpshooter Bogdan Bogdanovic for the starting two-guard job heading into the 2018-19 campaign.
Hield registered 15 points (7-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, two steals, an assist and a blocked shot in 32 minutes during Monday's 98-85 loss to the Spurs.
In his first full season with the Kings, he saw a significant jump in his rookie numbers but failed to make the kind of impact the Kings desperately needed. He's found himself jammed up in the depth chart behind Bogdan Bogdanovic at guard and Justin Jackson at the three, and it remains to be seen if his situation will change much next season. Unless he's dealt, he'll be on contract with the Kings until 2020.
Hield tallied 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds and three steals across 34 minutes in Friday's 94-93 win over the Grizzlies.
Hield's scoring total led the second unit, a customary occurrence, especially over the latter half of the season. The second-year wing hasn't posted a single-digit scoring tally since March 12, and he's now shot well over 50.0 percent in four of the last five games. He's accomplished the feat from distance in five straight, as well, helping keep his final lines robust despite a second-unit role.
Hield accounted for 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes in Tuesday's 97-94 loss to the Suns.
Hield wasn't as sharp as usual in the loss, and he also saw a bit of a drop in both usage and playing time with starter Bojan Bogdanovic playing 37 minutes and producing a team-high scoring total. The second-year sharpshooter's scoring total was his lowest since March 12, which also coincides with the last time he'd generated a sub-40-percent success rate from the floor. Given the extended stretch of strong play he'd been on prior to Tuesday's outlier, Hield will be poised to bounce back in a Friday matchup against the Grizzlies.
Hield poured in 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and added three rebounds, two assists and four steals across 32 minutes in Sunday's 84-83 win over the Lakers.
Hield actually scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half, but his only two points after intermission were critical. The second-year wing's dunk with 37 seconds remaining came off his own steal and put the Kings up 82-80, a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 24-year-old was impressive throughout March and got April off to an equally positive start, hitting double digits in the scoring column for the 10th straight game and shooting at least 50.0 percent from distance for the seventh time in the last nine contests. Given his secure and robust role off the bench, Hield remains a valuable multi-category asset to own during the fantasy postseason and in daily leagues.
