|Buddy Hield: Explodes in loss|
Hield finished Sunday's 118-112 loss to Houston with 27 points (9-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists and four steals in 30 minutes.
The Scoop: Hield was active defensively and looked comfortable in his sixth man role. While it isn't clear if he'll remain there while Tyrese Haliburton (COVID-19 protocols) is absent, shareholders should be encouraged by Sunday's performance. After a tough December, Hield has rallied across nine January contests, averaging 16.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game on a 42.9/44.3/86.7 slash line.
