Saric managed seven points (3-10 FG, 1-7 3Pt), six rebounds and three blocks across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 115-109 win over the Lakers.
Saric continues to provide rollercoaster production, as he's followed up four consecutive double-digit scoring efforts with back-to-back single-digit point totals. Saric has particularly struggled with his shooting during that span, as he's gone just 4-for-18 from the field. The 2014 first-round pick also turned in a 1-for-9 effort to open November against the Hawks, and he's likely to move back to the second unit once Jerryd Bayless returns from a wrist injury, which in turn would move Ben Simmons back to the power forward spot that Saric currently occupies.
Saric scored 25 points (7-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-6FT) to go along with 10 rebounds and one assist in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 104-97 win over the Jazz.
Saric struggled coming off the bench earlier this season, but has started the last five games. After failing to score more than nine points in any game coming off the bench, he has scored at least 12 points in four of the five games he has started. Playing time will be key if he is going to continue this recent run of success.
Saric finished with a season-high 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt) to go along with six rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes during Friday's 121-110 win over the Pacers.
Saric has gotten off to a slow start this season with the emergence of Ben Simmons, posting just 7.4 points and 4.5 rebounds on 32.4 percent shooting coming into Friday's game. He flashed plenty of talent last season, however, averaging 17.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in the last 29 games of the 2016-17 campaign. At this point, it's tough to tell what his role on the team will be moving forward, though he's certainly talented.
Saric will make another start in place of J.J. Redick (back) Monday against the Rockets, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Redick will miss his second straight game with lower-back soreness, so coach Brett Brown will again move Saric into the lineup at forward next to Robert Covington. In Saturday's win over the Mavs, Saric played a season-high 30 minutes and finished with 12 points -- also a season-high -- three assists, one rebound and one steal.
Saric will start in place of J.J. Redick (back) on Saturday against the Mavs, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With J.J. Redick hampered by a sore lower back, Saric will get the nod at small forward, joining Ben Simmons, Jerryd Bayless, Joel Embiid and Robert Covington in the starting five. Saric played a season-low 17 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Houston, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG), one assists and two rebounds.
