Luke Kennard totaled 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-6 3PT) and two rebounds in the Clippers’ 112-109 loss to the Jazz on Tuesday.
Kennard will hope to keep scoring in Game Two after the Clippers’ loss to the Jazz. This is his second game putting up a double-digit scoring effort, and he has shot over 60.0 percent from the field and beyond the arc in those games. Kennard doesn’t do much by way of producing value in other performance categories, but the offense has to come from somewhere. If Kennard can be consistent in his scoring, he could find himself more prevalent in the rotation, either in the starting five or coming off the bench. Kennard could be worth getting some exposure to for your DFS lineups on slates with limited value options.
Luke Kennard scored 23 points (9-19 FG, 3-9 3PT, 2-2) with one assist over 41 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Rockets 122-115 on Friday.
The Clips were resting Kawhi Leonard and Paul George so Kennard got the start. He led the team in points scored and minutes played in the loss. He only chipped in one assist but he got the job done in the points department for those who started him in DFS.
Los Angeles Clippers SG Luke Kennard (rest) has been ruled out Monday vs the Pelicans.
The Clippers will be without Kennard, Kawhi Leonard (foot), Serge Ibaka (back), and Patrick Beverley (hand) for the match on Monday. Kennard is unavailable due to rest, and Marcus Morris is expected to be available after being ruled out late prior to the last game for rest. Rajon Rondo (wrist) is questionable.
Luke Kennard scored 28 points (10-16 FG, 6-7 3PT, 2-3 FT) with seven rebounds, two assists, and one block over 38 minutes as the Clippers took down the Grizzlies 117-105 on Wednesday.
The Clippers were missing Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Reggie Jackson, and Rajon Rondo on Wednesday. The patchwork lineup struggled in the first half vs. Memphis, going down by as much as 17 points. But they rallied to come back and win by 12, thanks in large part to Kennard's season-high 28 points. His six-made three-pointers were also a season-best. The 24-year-old can shoot with the best of them when he gets the opportunities but he rarely gets the chance to put up 16 shot attempts. The Clippers are on a roll, having won 10-of-11 games while getting their key reserves such as Kennard and Terance Mann some crucial experience down the stretch.
Luke Kennard scored 17 points (5-17 FG, 1-6 3PT, 6-7 FT) with 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal over 39 minutes as the Clippers beat the Pistons 100-98 on Wednesday.
Kennard drew the start against his former team as Paul George sat this one out. While he didn't shoot well (29.4% FG) he still managed to score 17 points and secure his first double-double of the season. Kennard is usually worth a DFS play whenever he can get into the starting lineup and it's worth noting that he was still able to produce a good game despite shooting poorly and only making one three.
