Eric Gordon totaled 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3PT), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in the Suns’ 112-105 loss to the Raptors.
Gordon scored 10.0 points in the Suns’ loss to the Grizzlies, making this his ninth consecutive double-digit scoring performance. Even though Gordon has had a solid season so far, this performance could be the perfect example of what many managers may fear whenever considering him for their lineups. Gordon posted underwhelming production in his scoring and other performance categories, demonstrating the existence of the low floor of production he plays with night in and night out. This kind of performance can create a considerable disadvantage in producing any formidable value to remain competitive and could force us to reconsider Gordon’s strategic positioning in our rotation. He has had a few games like this throughout the year; however, he has luckily produced more plus-outings than not. Gordon remains a viable streaming option in most season-long leagues; his price point is a tad inflated but is still palatable enough to consider him in daily formats. He has a usage rate of 19.2 percent, a plus-minus of 2.3, and is averaging 31.5 minutes, 14.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game while shooting 46.8 percent from the floor and 40.3 percent from beyond the arc.
