Uthoff registered 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block during Friday's 112-110 win over host Canton.
The second-year performer out of Iowa had an effective game, scoring past the 20-point mark and recording a tally in every major statistical category. Uthoff has been a reliable scorer all season long for the Mad Ants, as he usually keeps pace with his 17.2 point season average night in and night out.
Uthoff was waived by the Pacers on Sunday.
Uthoff saw extended action in just one preseason game with the Pacers, as he was largely kept out of the rotation. He was given a non-guaranteed deal back in September, but was essentially just a training camp body and wasn't expected to make the final roster. Uthoff will likely start the season in the G-League, with the hope of getting called up at some point during the upcoming campaign.
Uthoff failed to be selected in the 2016 NBA Draft, but was ultimately able to latch on with the Mavericks late in the season, playing in nine games. However, most of his season was spent in the G-League, where he averaged a combined 11.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 24.4 minutes with three different teams. Most notably, he shot an impressive 46 percent from deep, so he should provide a floor-stretching big throughout training camp. Uthoff is not guaranteed a spot on the final roster, so he'll need to perform well throughout camp and the preseason to earn a spot.
Uthoff appeared in just nine games at the NBA level with the Mavericks throughout his rookie campaign during the 2016-17 season, averaging 4.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 13 minutes per contest. He'll now have to compete for a spot at forward on the new-look Rockets, who recently sent Sam Dekker, Lou Williams and several others to the Clippers in exchange for Chris Paul. Trevor Ariza and Ryan Anderson are the top options to start at forward for Houston next season, but there could be bench minutes available for Uthoff out of the gate.
