Shelvin Mack scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and six turnovers in 33 minutes of action on Wednesday against the Rockets.
Mack did this against the Rockets, who give up good lines but found themselves in a low-scoring 89-87 finish. He also did this with Rodney Hood (2-of-11 FGs, seven points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal, one three, 38 minutes) struggling. Gordon Hayward (22 ppoints, six rebounds, five assists, four steals, one block, two threes, 10-of-12 FTs) appears to be back to old form, so when Hayward and Hood are hitting at the same time it could be the thing that pushes Mack back into a drop situation. Owners may want to see if he slips before making the drop and it helps that they have four games next week.
