Caldwell-Pope tallied 17 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals across 41 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 loss to the Timberwolves.
KCP logged a team-high amount of minutes and drew even with Ivica Zubac for the team lead in rebounds as well. The 24-year-old has gone through some rough patches of poor shooting this season, but he'll head into the All-Star break riding a wave of cautious optimism. Factoring in Thursday's production, Caldwell-Pope has scored in double digits in six of the last nine contests, and he's shot at least 62.5 percent in three of the past four games while draining multiple threes in each. If he can pick up where he left off on the offensive end following the upcoming layoff, the fifth-year guard's stock will bump up a notch across all formats, considering he's also averaging career bests in rebounds (4.9) and steals (1.6).
Caldwell-Pope supplied 20 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's 106-81 win over the Thunder.
Caldwell-Pope's scoring total paced the Lakers and was his highest since Jan. 15. The 24-year-old's 70.0 percent success rate was also his best of the campaign and was a nice bounce-back from a seven-game stretch where he'd shot just 38.1 percent. KCP's production continue to fluctuate pretty significantly, as he's tallied single-digit point totals in four of the last eight contests. He does have the ability to make some solid contributions on the glass on occasion, as he's now hauled in between five and seven boards in four of the last seven games and is averaging a career-high 4.7 rebounds.
Caldwell-Pope tallied 16 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes in Sunday's 123-111 loss to the Raptors.
Caldwell-Pope quieted the doubters Sunday night, as he shot better than he had been and posted his first double-digit point effort since returning from an Achilles injury. He nailed 50 percent of his threes, which is a good sign for the sharpshooting shooting guard moving forward.
Caldwell-Pope, who posted five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes in Friday's 108-103 win over the Bulls, is averaging 6.5 points (on 26.6 percent shooting), 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 24.0 minutes in two games since returning from a two-game absence from an Achilles injury.
The 24-year-old has notably struggled with his shot since his return, which has led to his first instance of back-to-back single-digit scoring tallies since Oct. 27-28. Caldwell-Pope has been over the 20-point mark only once since Dec. 12, as well, but he came into Friday's game with the second-highest shooting percentage (41.3) of his career, a figure that includes a career-best 35.7 percent success rate from behind the arc. Despite some occasional scoring fluctuations, he remains a reliable source of scoring and was also averaging a career-high 4.8 rebounds coming into Friday's contest.
Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) will play Tuesday against the Celtics.
Caldwell-Pope will return from a two-game absence stemming from a strained Achilles. Look for Josh Hart to move back to the bench for the contest, leaving Caldwell-Pope to resume his regular role as starting shooting guard. Through eight games in January, Caldwell-Pope has averaged 13.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in just over 28 minutes per contest, although he could see his minutes reduced in his return to the court Tuesday.
