Maker finished with 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt), four rebounds, and one block in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 win over the Pacers.
Maker reached double digits in scoring in consecutive contests for the first time this season. Moreover, Maker has made more treys in these last two tilts (five-of-six) than he did over the previous 25 games (four-of-21). The sophomore will have every shot to earn a decent share of minutes behind starting center John Henson, but Maker, who made 10-of-27 from beyond the arc through the first 10 games of 2017-18, will likely remain inconsistent.
Maker posted 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime win over the Suns.
The young center parlayed a season-high amount of minutes into a career-best scoring total, and his night could have potentially been even bigger had he not fouled out late in the contest. Maker has been seeing at least 20 minutes with regularity for the majority of November, but he'd yet to hit double digits in the scoring column this season until Wednesday's performance. While he doesn't typically offer much offensively, he's been a solid source of rebounds and blocks for those owning him in deeper formats.
Maker will start at center Wednesday against Phoenix.
With John Henson and Giannis Antetokounmpo both out of action, coach Jason Kidd will pivot to a much smaller lineup, rolling out Gary Payton, Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon and Khris Middleton with Maker at center. Maker is coming off of a pedestrian performance Monday against the Wizards -- two points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal in 20 minutes -- but he should see a fairly significant increase in minutes Wednesday.
After a brutal matchup against Thunder center Steven Adams, coach Jason Kidd has opted to put a bigger body on the front line against Dwight Howard on Wednesday. Maker's workload probably won't change much as a result of the lineup switch, however, as he's averaging just 16.9 minutes per game (4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds).
Maker recorded eight points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-1 FT) and one rebound across 19 minutes during a 110-91 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday.
Maker put up a season-high nine field goal attempts and scored a season-high eight points as a result. He has not played more than 20 minutes yet this season, so he has not been able to produce much at all in the way of stats so far. It will be interesting to see if Maker starts to receive more minutes at any point this season, because if so, he may start to have some value.
