Top Bennedict Mathurin News

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Leads offense in near-30-point game

    Mathurin registered 27 points (9-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Mathurin provided a spark off the bench, leading the team in both scoring and rebounds while shooting more efficiently than usual from both the field and free-throw line. He's now scored at least 20 points in five consecutive outings, but he's supplementing that scoring production with relatively minimal numbers elsewhere (6.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 three-pointers, 0.8 steals and 0.2 blocks per game over that span).

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Game-high 26 points off bench

    Mathurin recorded 26 points (7-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 10-12 FT), three rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Wednesday's 126-120 loss to the Magic.

    Mathurin had a solid first half with 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field to go along with four assists before going just 3-of-11 over the final two quarters as the Pacers fell to the Magic. The shooting guard also sank 10 of his 12 free-throw attempts to finish with a game-high 26 points, while his four assists were the most he's recorded in a contest since Nov. 7. Mathurin has now scored at least 20 points in three straight, shooting 44.2 percent from the field over that stretch.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Another 20-point outing off bench

    Mathurin ended Tuesday's 116-110 win over the Bulls with 26 points (10-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds and two assists over 34 minutes.

    Mathurin led all bench players in scoring while leading the Pacers' second unit in rebounds during Tuesday's victory. Mathurin has tallied 20 or more points in two straight games, increasing his total to 18 times this season.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Scores 23 points off bench

    Mathurin racked up 23 points (6-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 11-11 FT), five rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 loss to the Suns.

    Mathurin is one of the top scorers in this season's rookie class and showed it again with another excellent performance, reaching the 20-point threshold for the fourth time in January and 18th time this season. He has slowed down a bit compared to what he did in the first weeks of the campaign, but Mathurin remains a reliable fantasy contributor in points leagues thanks to his willingness to put up shots and get to the free-throw line at a high rate. However, Mathurin's poor mark from the field (42.1 percent for the season) and limited contributions in other areas (4.0 rebounds, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.4 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.1 blocks per game) make him far less useful in category leagues.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Back to bench

    Mathurin isn't starting Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    The rookie had drawn four straight starts, posting 16.8 points and 5.3 rebounds in 28.3 minutes per game during that stretch. However, he'll shift back to a reserve role Friday, as Oshae Brissett will draw his first start of the season. Across 40 games as a reserve, Mathurin has averaged 17.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 27.9 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Puts up 13 points Wednesday

    Mathurin accumulated 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and five rebounds over 22 minutes during Wednesday's 126-106 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Mathurin has failed to reach the 15-point mark in his last two games while shooting a combined 38.9 percent from the field in those outings, but those numbers shouldn't worry fantasy managers. The rookie is averaging 14.5 points per game as a starter and should remain in that role going forward, especially as Tyrese Haliburton (knee) remains sidelined.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Scores 26 as starter Friday

    Mathurin had 26 points (9-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-11 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Friday's 113-111 loss to the Hawks.

    Mathurin has played off the bench in almost every game this season, but he was forced to jump into a starting role with the absences of key players such as Tyrese Haliburton (knee), Aaron Nesmith (illness) and Myles Turner (back). The rookie delivered and led the Pacers in scoring and continues to impress, posting 17 games with 20 or more points this season. If Nesmith and Turner can't return to action Saturday against the Grizzlies, Mathurin will likely remain in the starting lineup and should be heavily involved again.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Inserted as starter Friday

    Mathurin will start Friday's game versus the Hawks, Scott Agness of reports.

    Mathurin gets the call to join the starting five with Aaron Nesmith (illness), Tyrese Haliburton (knee) and Myles Turner (back) all sidelined Friday. Mathurin didn't post particularly eye-popping numbers in his previous two starts as a rookie, averaging 10.0 points and 2.0 rebounds over 30.0 minutes per game.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Scores 20 points off bench

    Mathurin closed Wednesday's 119-113 loss to the Knicks with 20 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-9 FT), six rebounds and one assist over 28 minutes.

    Mathurin bounced back from a subpar four-point performance against the Hornets on Sunday, and he's now scored at least 19 points in four of his last five outings. The rookie is a prime candidate to gain a bigger role as long as Tyrese Haliburton (knee) is out, though he's still likely to come off the bench with T.J. McConnell likely stepping into the starting point guard role.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Cleared for action

    Mathurin (shoulder) is available for Sunday's game against the Hornets, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    Mathurin was initially questionable due to left shoulder soreness, but the rookie will ultimately be available for Sunday's matchup. The Arizona product has yet to miss a game this season and is averaging 17.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 28.0 minutes across 40 appearances (two starts).

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Questionable Sunday

    Mathurin is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Hornets due to left shoulder soreness.

    Mathurin hasn't missed a game yet in his career and has been on a tear lately, averaging 18.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 25.4 minutes since Christmas. If he sits out, more minutes could be in store for Chris Duarte and Aaron Nesmith.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Leads team in scoring

    Mathurin accumulated 19 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-7 FT), two rebounds and two steals in 21 minutes during Friday's 108-99 victory over Portland.

    Mathurin's 19 points was a team-high in the win on Friday. The rookie continues to impress with his scoring abilities, including getting to the free-throw line. This was his fifth straight contest with at least seven attempts from the charity stripe, and he's converting a fantastic 82.1 percent on the season.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Comes off bench for 19 points

    Mathurin closed with 19 points (5-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Wednesday's 129-126 overtime loss to the 76ers.

    Mathurin recorded just three points over the first three quarters before racking up 12 in the fourth on 4-of-9 shooting from the field, while also knocking down all four of his free-throw attempts. The Pacers guard added another four points in overtime to give him 19 on the night, which was second on the team. Mathurin has scored 15 or more points in six straight contests and has shot 10 free throws in each of his last three appearances.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Leading scorer off bench

    Mathurin posted 21 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 7-10 FT), three rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes off the bench during Monday's 122-114 victory over the Raptors.

    The rookie led the Pacers in scoring on a night when seven different Indiana players scored in double digits. Mathurin's showing from three-point range was especially encouraging, as he'd gone seven straight games without sinking multiple threes coming into Monday. Over his last 10 games, the 20-year-old is averaging 16.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 threes.

  • Pacers' Bennedict Mathurin: Cleans up at free-throw line

    Mathurin finished with 18 points (6-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 26 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 129-114 win over the Hawks.

    Mathurin's woes from downtown continued -- he's now hit just 22.7 percent of his three-point attempts over his past six games -- but he was able to produce his best point total since Dec. 16 due to his flawless shooting from two-point range and the free-throw line. As per usual, Mathurin's contributions in the non-scoring categories remained thin, making the rookie far more valuable in points leagues than he is in eight- or nine-category formats.
