TJ Warren scored 21 points to go with five rebounds and four assists in the Pacers' series ending loss to the Miami Heat.
Warren had a solid game to end the Pacers' season, adding to his great play during the NBA bubble. Warren played great before playoffs for the Pacers, but did not have the same success against Miami in the playoffs. Warren showed that he is an exceptional scorer and should look to build on that next season.
Updating a previous report, TJ Warren went to the locker room with an apparent thumb injury but is now available to return.
The Pacers dodged a bullet here and it looks like he will return to the game.
TJ Warren registered 23 points (8-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, five steals, two assists and one block across 40 minutes during Saturday's 124-115 Game 3 loss to the Heat.
Warren has now scored at least 20 points and recorded four steals in two of three games this playoff series. He continues to flourish as one of the main options of the Pacers offense along side Malcolm Brogdon. The Pacers will need Warren to be on top of his game if they plan on winning the series against the Heat. Warren will look to build on Saturday's performance in Monday's Game 4.
TJ Warren struggled from deep Thursday (0-5 3PT) and scored just 14 points (7-15 FG) with six rebounds, three assists, and two turnovers in 38 minutes in a 109-100 Game 2 loss to the Heat.
After an incredible start in the Bubble, Warren has cooled off a bit to start the series against Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat. He's still managing to put up respectable numbers, but if the Pacers are going to take the series from the Heat, they're going to need Warren to get hot like he was during the seeding games. He'll get a chance at redemption Saturday in Game 3.
TJ Warren posted 22 points (9-18 FG, 4-5 3PT), eight rebounds, three assists and four steals throughout 38 minutes of action during Tuesday's 101-113 Game 1 loss to the Miami Heat.
Despite Miami's intended focus on slowing Warren down, he was able to produce a solid stat line in Game 1. His ability to score will always be there, but fantasy owners have to be pleased with his eight-rebound four-steal effort as Warren fails to produce much outside of points. With Victor Oladipo (eye) exiting in the first half, Warren and Malcolm Brogdon were forced to carry the load on offense and that will remain the case if Oladipo is forced to miss any time.
