VanVleet scored 24 points (7-18 FG, 3-8 3PT, 7-8 FT) to go along with nine assists, five rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.
VanVleet topped 20 points for the first time in four contests, showing signs of breaking out a shooting slump. Entering Wednesday's game, he had shot only 27.1 percent from the field in that span while also averaging only 12 points per game. Despite those struggles, VanVleet has now handed out at least eight assists in three of his last four contests.
VanVleet recorded six points (2-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, six assists and four steals across 34 minutes during Monday's 116-93 win over the Mavericks.
VanVleet's six points marked a season low in the blowout win, but the four steals were a season high as he was still able to salvage a solid line despite the struggles shooting the ball. The 26-year-old guard has followed up his two previous single-digit scoring games this season by scoring more than 20 points, so expect him to return closer to his scoring average of 19.0 points per game in Wednesday's outing against Miami.
VanVleet had 15 points (4-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 assists, seven rebounds and one block in a 116-113 win Saturday against the Hornets.
VanVleet only needed nine minutes in the second quarter to reach 10 points. However, he mostly struggled to make shots and instead supplied value with assists. VanVleet shot 27.8 percent but averaged 9.0 assists across back-to-back games against the Hornets.
Vanvleet recorded 17 points (6-20 FG, 5-15 3PT), one rebound and eight assists in 36 minutes during the 111-108 win over Charlotte on Thursday.
Vanvleet continued his season shooting struggles in the win Thursday. The guard has only gone 50 percent or higher on the floor three times this year out of 10 starts. Luckily he has produced elsewhere to help out his Raptors, but his shot is nothing to rely on right now. Until he can start helping produce more in the offensive end, he is not going to be as viable.
VanVleet gathered 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt), six assists and one steal across 37 minutes during Monday's 112-111 loss to Portland.
VanVleet scored 10 points or fewer for the third time this season as he also failed to get to the free throw line for the second game in a row in a poor shooting effort. The 26-year-old guard has bounced back with 20-plus points after both previous games this season when he went for fewer than 10 points, so more of the same can be expected.
VanVleet went for 21 points (9-20 FG, 3-10 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists and one block over 39 minutes in the Raptors' 106-105 loss to the Warriors on Sunday.
In five games of the 2021 calendar year, VanVleet is averaging 26 points per game and shooting just under 50 percent from the floor. So far this season, VanVleet is averaging career highs in points, shooting percentage and rebounds.
VanVleet registered 34 points (13-22 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and a steal across 33 minutes in Friday's win over the Kings.
VanVleet has been the Raptors' top player -- in both real life and fantasy -- by a wide margin, and he paced the squad once again with his second 30-point performance of the season -- both have come over his last three games. VanVleet has taken a massive leap this season and is averaging a career-best 22.3 points.
VanVleet scored 35 points (13-20 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, three assists and two steals across 33 minutes in Monday's 126-114 loss against the Celtics.
VanVleet has settled in as Toronto's biggest threat on offense on a nightly basis, and his numbers seem to back that up -- he has reached the 25-point plateau in four of his six contests to date, and the only reason why his scoring numbers aren't higher is that he started the 2020-21 season with two single-digit scoring efforts over his first three games. Either way, VanVleet is averaging 21.8 points per game through his first six appearances.
VanVleet generated 27 points (9-23 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 40 minutes in Saturday's 120-116 loss to the Pelicans.
The standout guard has been hot and cold to begin the season, but he managed to put together two productive games in a row. Saturday's performance is what we're used to seeing with VanVleet after a summer session where he put up superlative numbers every time he took the floor. The abbreviated preseason had an adverse effect on many pure shooters. Once VanVleet settles in, he should meet and possibly exceed the production he had in the Orlando bubble.
VanVleet notched 25 points (9-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block across 36 minutes in Thursday's win over the Knicks.
VanVleet has been very inconsistent when it comes to his role as a scoring threat in the early days of the season and while he had an increased responsibility on the offensive side of the court due to Pascal Siakam (not injury related) being out Thursday, he responded and topped the 20-point mark for the second time in four games. VanVleet is averaging 17.3 points, 6.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game in four starts so far in 2020-21.
VanVleet scored 27 points (10-20 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, nine assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Spurs.
VanVleet ended just one assist shy of what would've been his first double-double of the season, and this was a marked improvement following what he did in the first game of the campaign, where he finished with just nine points while shooting 3-for-12 from the field. VanVleet might not lead the Raptors offensively on a nightly basis, but he should be a reliable source for production on both ends of the court moving forward.
VanVleet scored nine points (3-12 FG, 2-8 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, three assists and three steals across 30 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans.
VanVleet struggled to find his shot in the first game of the regular season, though he still finished third on the team in field-goal attempts. While things weren't working on the offensive end of the floor, VanVleet remained strong defensively by racking up a trio of steals. He'll look to get his shooting stroke back on Saturday against the Spurs.
VanVleet scored seven points (3-11 FG, 0-7 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go with three rebounds and seven assists in 24 minutes during Friday's 117-105 preseason loss to Miami.
VanVleet had a tough night shooting the rock, as he posted an abysmal 27% from the floor and missed all seven of his three-point attempts. The guard also ceded usage to the returning Kyle Lowry, but VanVleet did provide a team-high seven assists in the contest.
VanVleet scored 23 points (9-12 FG, 5-7 3PT) and had four assists while playing 22 minutes during Monday's 112-109 preseason win over Charlotte.
VanVleet continued to shine in the absence of Kyle Lowry on Monday, posting a game-high 23 points, including an excellent 71 percent accuracy rate from behind the arc. Coming off an excellent season a year ago, VanVleet's role should be there even when Lowry returns, making the former a strong pick heading into the new campaign.
VanVleet scored nine points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five assists, five steals and a rebound in 17 minutes during Saturday's 111-100 preseason win over the Hornets.
Kyle Lowry is away from the Raptors for the beginning of the preseason schedule, so VanVleet got the start at point guard and flashed the defensive chops that allowed him to record a career-best 1.9 steals a game last year. With a new four-year, $85 million contract in his pocket, look for the 26-year-old to be one of the key players in the Toronto lineup once again in 2020-21.
VanVleet and the Raptors have come to terms on a four-year, $85 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
There were some rumors about other suitors for VanVleet, but the general expectation was that he and the Raptors would come to some sort of an agreement. He was an essential piece during the team's championship run in 2019 and made an even bigger leap last season. He averaged career highs across the board in 2019-20 to the tune of 17.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.7 triples on 39.0 percent shooting from beyond the arc across 35.7 minutes per game.
VanVleet scored 20 points (8-20 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 0-0 FT) and added six assists, three rebounds and two blocks in 45 minutes of Friday's 92-87 Game 7 loss to Boston.
VanVleet was the only Raptor to score 20 points. He tallied at least 17 in each game of the series and averaged 18.7 points per contest to go with 6.4 assists and 4.6 rebounds.
VanVleet went for 21 points (7-22 FG, 3-13 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks across 51 minutes Wednesday in the Raptors' 125-122 win over the Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series.
After trailing by four at halftime, the Raptors briefly seized control of the contest in the third quarter thanks in large part to VanVleet's efforts. He poured in 12 of his 21 points during that time, with half of that output coming on one possession. After drilling three straight free throws following a Marcus Smart flagrant foul, VanVleet proceeded to knock down one of his three treys in the quarter. He'll head into Game 7 with averages of 19.6 points, 7.0 assists, 4.5 boards, 3.9 threes and 1.8 steals through the Raptors' first 10 playoff contests.
VanVleet collected 18 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3PT, 4-4 FT) and five assists in Monday's Game 5 loss to Boston.
His 18 points were a team high on a night when the Raptors shot just 39 percent from the field and 30 percent from three. VanVleet has hit multiple three-pointers in all five games of the series, but he's shooting just 31.4 percent (17-for-54) from beyond the arc.
VanVleet notched 17 points (6-19 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, six assists and a steal in 45 minutes during Saturday's Game 4 win over the Celtics.
VanVleet scored only 11 points in Game 1 of the series, but he has topped the 15-point plateau in the last three contests of the series -- he has achieved that feat in six of his eight postseason games thus far. The combo guard is averaging 18.0 points, 6.8 assists and 4.5 boards in four games during the current series against Toronto.
