Ball tallied 23 points (9-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 115-110 loss to Brooklyn.
Ball dropped a season-high 23 points in Tuesday's loss, also adding a season-high five triples. Ball has been great across the last two weeks and is the 45th ranked player in that time. This is more the kind of production owners would have been hoping for when they drafted him. Rajon Rondo (hand) is close to a return and it will be interesting to see how much of an impact that has on Ball's playing time.
Ball contributed 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, 10 assists, five steals, and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 win over the Hornets.
Ball recorded his first triple-double of the season while posting a season high scoring total and matching season highs in rebounds and steals. Ball has reached double figures in boards and dimes three times each through 29 appearances, and while his per-game averages are down across the board compared to last season, the sophomore is showing signs of promise and seems to be slowly finding his niche offensively alongside LeBron James.
Ball checked off every box on the stat sheet in trademark fashion, posting his third double-digit scoring effort over the last four games in the process. The second-year point guard's shooting struggles persisted, however, as he's now shot under 40 percent in four of five December contests. Ball was particularly active on the boards Monday, with his seven rebounds serving as his highest total over the last six games.
Ball tallied 13 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds, and one steal in 38 minutes during Friday's 133-120 loss to San Antonio.
Ball matched his season-high with 11 assists during Friday's loss, adding 13 points in what was another solid performance. Ball has now played at least 38 minutes in back-to-back games, scoring a total of 27 points and handing out 20 assists. The production is trending in the right direction and all looks good for the sophomore but owners need to be aware that Rajon Rondo (hand) is due back in the next couple of weeks which could impact his value.
The inconsistent second-year guard had one of his more productive shooting nights, and his three-pointer with 2:36 remaining snapped a 104-104 tie. Ball's shooting -- and by extension, his scoring -- continues to be difficult to trust, as he's now posted double-digit point totals in only two of his last seven games. However, he was especially aggressive from distance Wednesday, draining multiple threes for the first time since Nov. 14. The 2017 first-round pick remains more consistent in the areas of rebounding, assists and steals, with the occasional scoring contributions a bonus.
