Buddy Hield steps up after slow startDecember 02, 2019 | 09:28 PM
Buddy Hield's 26 points (9-of-21 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) weren't enough in a loss to the Bulls on Monday, adding five rebounds, four assists, one steal and three triples in 39 minutes.
Analysis: He was invisible in the first half with four points but found his stride after halftime. The Kings are going to be without De'Aaron Fox (ankle) for at least another 2-3 weeks, but his return won't have too big of an impact on Hield. In fact, his per-minute stats with and without Fox on the floor are almost identical. Hield still has a shot at early-round value because his FG% is still well short of his mark last season.
