Eric Gordon played 36 minutes off the bench in Friday’s Game 3 defeat, notching 12 points, three boards, two steals and a block on 5-of-11 shooting.
Gordon also hit a triple to cap off a pretty solid night. With Patrick Beverley in foul trouble for much of the night, Gordon spent a little time as a primary ball handler and was tasked with defending Russell Westbrook from time to time as well. If EG plays that many minutes he’s likely to score more than 12 points, so look for that going forward. The defensive stats were a nice reward for owners tonight.
