Buddy Hield recorded 28 points (10-17 FG, 8-14 3PT), five rebounds, two assists, and two steals in Thursday's win over the Lakers.
Hield had a season marred by inconsistencies but helped the Kings finish the season on a high note. The Kings set a franchise record for three-pointers made in a game (21), with eight of those getting drained by Hield. If he starts the 2020-2021 season in Sacramento there will be a lot of conversations as to whether he or Bogdan Bogdanovic deserves the starting shooting guard duties.
Buddy Hield chipped in 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 FT) with three assists, two rebounds, three three-pointers, and three turnovers in 19 minutes of action.
Hield is on a rollercoaster ride of production across seven games in Orlando, but he played well offensively in tonight's win. Hield only saw 19 minutes but only missed one of his five shots on his way to scoring 11 points, including a few three's. Hield can't be trusted in the Kings' final Bubble game on Thursday versus the Lakers unless he sees 30+ minutes, which likely isn't going to happen.
Buddy Hield put up 17 points (6-16 FG, 3-10 3PT, 2-2 FT) and one rebound in Friday's loss to the Nets.
Hield knocked down some open looks late in garbage time but was essentially a non-factor in any minutes that mattered. Bogdanovic has solidified his role as a the team's starting shooting guard. Coach Luke Walton says that he'll play the hot hand and write now that's Bogdanovic. Hield's price in DFS makes him an easy player to avoid.
Buddy Hield registered three points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3PT), one rebound, and one steal over 11 minutes of relief in Thursday's 140-125 win over the Pelicans.
There was no reason to sub Hield in for Bogdan Bogdanovic while the latter was in the midst of a career-game and seemingly unstoppable. Hield was benched for Bogdanovic prior to the league's shutdown and his production has been pretty erratic since. A lack of efficiency was the reason for the initial benching and coach Luke Walton seems to play the hot hand between Hield and Bogdanovic now. Thursday's game was all Bogdanovic but Hield will hope to register some more impactful minutes in future games. He scored 21 points in 31 minutes just a few nights ago showing that Walton will still play him when he's stroking.
Buddy Hield put up 21 points (8-20 FG, 5-14 3PT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal over 30 minutes off the bench in the overtime loss to Dallas on Tuesday.
Hield put up his highest-scoring performance so far in the bubble but he's still tough to trust in fantasy lineups. His unpredictable scoring and lack of peripheral stats make it easy to fade him in all formats.
