|Buddy Hield: Dishes out season-high nine assists|
Hield closed with 16 points (7-20 FG, 1-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 38 minutes during Friday's 111-106 loss to the Pistons.
The Scoop: Hield struggled with his shot but salvaged his offensive efficiency by dishing out a season-high nine assists. The sixth-year wing has scored in double figures in all nine contests since joining the Pacers and has averaged 20.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.2 asssits across 39.2 minutes during that stretch. Hield figures to continue garnering a primary offensive role for Indiana down the stretch, which should bode well for his fantasy outlook.
