T.J. Warren’s previously undiscovered bubble powers are now on complete display in Orlando as he ascends to a higher plane bucket acquisition. Warren set a career-high with 53 points against the Sixers on Saturday, finishing 20-29 from the field and 9-12 from three.
Watching this reminded me of his 41-point performance against Pittsburgh in his sophomore year, when he also hit some ridiculous three pointers. There aren’t many guys who are as entertaining as Warren when he’s cookin’.
As a follow-up, Warren scored 34 points against the Wizards on Monday while adding 11 rebounds and four blocked shots.
He was only 1-6 from three in this one, but 13-20 inside the arc. For the season, T.J. his shooting better than 57% inside the arc, which is a career-high. He’s also done an impressive job expanding his game and becoming a consistently effective shooter from three (39.8% this year on a career-high number of attempts).
The Pacers will be back at it against the Magic on Tuesday evening.
