Kentavious Caldwell-Pope filled the box score during Wednesday’s loss to Brooklyn, scoring 15 points with seven boards, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers.
He shot just 4-of-14 from the floor, but did hit all five of his free throws. Caldwell-Pope’s ability to generate steals was a popular offseason topic, as an increase in swipes elevates him from a mere shooting specialist to a legitimate 3-and-D contributor. He’s had double digit steals in all but one game so far this season, so his arrow is definitely pointing up.
