McConnell tallied 16 points (7-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, six assists and two steals across 34 minutes Friday against Atlanta.
McConnell was on the court for 34 minutes, matching his season-high from Nov. 10 against Memphis. He was effective while in the game, missing just one shot while dishing out six dimes. Despite Friday's impressive showing, McConnel is putting up just 7.0 points per contest through six games in January, and his bench role certainly limits his fantasy appeal.
McConnell's well-rounded efforts off the bench were key to the Sixers holding on for the tough road win. The versatile reserve guard now has three straight double-digit scoring efforts, shooting between Tuesday's 66.7 percent and 85.7 percent in those contests. McConnell continues to be a viable asset in deeper season-long formats and as a DFS punt play by virtue of his ability to check off every box on the stat sheet, and he's also greatly aiding his cause this season by shooting a career-best 56.4 percent across his first 32 games.
The Trail Blazers led by 29 points at halftime, prompting coach Brett Brown to limit the playing time of most of the 76ers' starters. That afforded more run to players like McConnell, who turned in the best stat line among the team's reserves. McConnell had averaged 6.0 points, 7.0 assists and 3.7 rebounds in 25.0 minutes per game in three contests prior to Sunday, so he's beginning to carve out some decent value in deeper leagues.
As has often been the case this season, McConnell paced the Sixers second unit in both scoring and assists. The productive point guard now has three consecutive seven-assist efforts, while his scoring total was his first double-digit point tally since Dec. 12. McConnell has also shot at least 50 percent in three of his past four games, although his fluctuating offensive usage does sometimes wreak havoc with his consistency.
McConnell accrued 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes Wednesday against Philadelphia.
The backup guard had an excellent shooting night Wednesday, hitting 8-of-10 shots from the field including his lone three-pointer. McConnell has reached double-figures in four of his past six games after doing it just twice in his first 17. This scoring burst has corresponded with an increase in minutes, which if it sustains, could make McConnell a worthy pickup in deeper leagues.
