Gates finished the loss Thursday to Westchester with 28 points (9-16 FG, 8-15 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and one assist.
Chalk up a new season-high for the 22-year-old thanks in large part to 24 points from downtown. Considering the undrafted rookie put together that type of production despite coming off the bench, it's fair to wonder what the forward could do with a spot in the starting rotation.
Gates produced 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt), 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot in the win Tuesday over the Herd.
It's a bit surprising to see Gates put together this type of routinely outstanding production despite coming off the bench, but yet again the forward managed to register a double-double. His season averages still aren't eye-popping (12.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists) but those numbers have risen substantially since December.
Gates put up 20 points (6-13 FG, 4-6 FT, 4-10 3Pt), 15 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in Windy City's 119-110 win over the Blue Coats on Wednesday.
Gates had an incredible performance on Wednesday, putting up impressive numbers and leading the bench in 28 minutes of action. After putting up three points in three minutes in the first, Gates played strong in the second, scoring eight points on efficient shooting and picking up six boards. Kaiser's role on the team, relieving a starter and providing a spark off the bench, means that he doesn't get to shine too often. Kaiser only averages 11.8 points per game, but this rookie has shown tremendous promise so far.
Gates scored 15 points (4-10 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot in the win Monday over Westchester.
Gates has been the team's primary three-point shooter, attempting 7.1 shots from downtown in 29 games this season. It's probably more remarkable that he only averages 9.1 shots from the field, making him almost exclusively a threat from deep. Considering the sheer amount of attempts, the fact Gates is making 35.1 percent is quite respectable, particularly for a power forward.
Gates totaled 12 points (4-11 FG, 4-9 3Pt), 11 rebounds and an assist over 34 minutes Friday against Iowa.
Gates did all of his damage from beyond the arc, draining 44.4 percent of his attempts from deep. Despite a solid effort, the Wolves would drop Friday's contest 115-103. Gates will aim to continue his recent success from three as the season rolls on.
