Putney posted 20 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 10-10 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in the win Wednesday over Iowa.
The G League veteran isn't quite matching his career scoring numbers, but he's countering that by shooting a higher free throw percentage and recording more rebounds than at any other point of his career. The 29-year-old likely isn't poised for a shot in the NBA, but there's a distinct possibility he could muscle his way into the starting lineup with continually strong performances.
Putney scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and collected five rebounds across 21 minutes Friday against Stockton.
Putney has been impressive for the Skyforce so far this season, averaging 14.4 points along with 8.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists and 2.1 blocks in 27 contests. He's also shooting 43.0 percent from the field but has struggled to a 28.4 percent success rate from beyond the arc.
Putney piled on 32 points, five rebounds and two assists in the win Monday over the Stars.
It was an explosive contest altogether, as the two teams combined to attempt 181 shots. Putney tied for the team-lead in attemps with Rodney Purvis, but it was the former who ultimately posted a higher three-point percentage (8-of-11 3Pt) thus resulting in game-high 32 points despite playing nearly 10 less minutes.
