Jrue Holiday went 8-of-16 from the field and 2-of-4 from the charity stripe on his way to 19 points in Sunday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

Holiday added seven rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and two turnovers while he was out there, but he struggled to get his shot to drop from long-range (1-of-4 from beyond the arc), which was a team-wide trend with New Orleans hitting just 15.4% of their 3-point shots. Their 4-of-26 shooting from 3-point territory was their worst such performance of the season, and they'll need to do better in all areas to have a chance of pulling out a win on Tuesday.
May 6 - 6:51 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 21 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Warriors in a Game 3 win on Friday.

He's completely turned it around after a disappointing 11-point Game 1 with this gem and a 24-point Tuesday. Holiday was also very effective on the defensive end with several possessions on Kevin Durant in this impressive win. Holiday did set the bar extremely high with his 27.8 points per game in the Blazers series, but maybe he can still get to 20 per night in a much tougher matchup.
May 4 - 10:45 PM

Jrue Holiday hit 11-of-24 shots and 2-of-9 3-pointers for 24 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in 47 minutes of Tuesday's 121-116 Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

Holiday has looked like one of the top point guards in the league for most of the season and it's nice to finally see him fully healthy and balling out. It may not matter how well the Pelicans play in this series, as the Warriors look unbeatable, despite a nonchalant walk through the Spurs in Round 1, and they got Steph Curry back tonight. Games 3 and 4 are in New Orleans on Friday and Sunday, and the Pelicans are basically in a must-win situation for both of those games.
May 2 - 1:43 AM

Jrue Holiday made 4-of-14 from the field for 11 points with three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

Yep, the Warriors are not the Blazers and Holiday could not get free or slash in the paint for layups. He'll also have yet another tough task on defense, but this time the Pelicans just can't trap ball-handlers like they did a lot vs. Portland. After the game, Draymond Green called the Pelicans out for "gimmicky" defensive traps against the Blazers, as well. Holiday won't be this bad, but it would be stunning to see him come close to matching his production from the last series.
Apr 29 - 1:05 AM

Jrue Holiday scored a playoff career-high 41 points during a 131-123 win over the Blazers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

If this season taught us one thing, never underestimate Jrue Holiday again. He was unstoppable on drives in this win going 9-of-9 within three feet while all of his dimes resulted in makes in the paint or treys. With how good Anthony Davis is, you could argue the Pelicans have the best duo in the playoffs right now -- it's a really tough argument these days. Plus, the AD-Jrue combo became just the second duo to score 40-plus each in a playoff since 2000 (Kyrie, LeBron). Holiday is likely going to have to guard Kevin Durant a lot in the next round, so he'll need to be on his A game for that one.
Apr 21 - 7:59 PM

Jrue Holiday hit 14-of-24 shots and two 3-pointers for a playoff career-high 33 points, three rebounds, nine assists and a steal in Tuesday's thrilling 111-102 Game 2 win over the Blazers to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

Holiday's defense on Damian Lillard has been nothing short of spectacular, as Lillard's hit just 13-of-41 shots in his two games in this series. Holiday hit a monster 3-pointer with the game on the line tonight and is now averaging 27 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.5 3-pointers in the series. Holiday looks very motivated to play against Lillard and C.J. McCollum and could really take off with the next two games coming at home in New Orleans, starting on Thursday. If you want to take him as your first guard in DFS, it makes sense given how well he's playing right now.
Apr 18 - 1:29 AM

Jrue Holiday brought the defense against the Blazers during a 97-95 win on Saturday, scoring 21 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

He's a good bet to be on an All-Defense team and that was the highlight of the night for Holiday, who defended Damian Lillard for most of his time out there. Holiday also had a big steal on C.J. McCollum just as the Blazers were looking to take a lead in the last minute, Holiday had a big stop on Dame with 12 seconds left and the Pelicans up one, and he blocked Pat Connaughton with five seconds left to ice this one. He probably won't make an All-NBA team, but Holiday has easily been a top-10 guard in the NBA this season.
Apr 15 - 1:09 AM

Jrue Holiday scored 23 points with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and six turnovers in 34 minutes during a win over the Spurs on Wednesday.

What a season from Jrue. He played in 81 games, he had his most efficient season ever with a 57 TS%, and he had tough defensive assignments all season. He should be a lock to be on the All-Defensive Teams and he was one of the best bargains in fantasy hoops. He'll likely be guarding Damian Lillard in the opening round.
Apr 11 - 11:07 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 25 points with five rebounds, six assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He's been so good that this line isn't even that great by his standards. Holiday was also on Kevin Durant a lot today, which shows his versatility on both sides of the ball. Holiday is probably going to be a second-round pick next season.
Apr 7 - 11:49 PM

Jrue Holiday ended up with 22 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots across 32 minutes in Friday's 122-103 road win against the Suns.

Holiday, Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic were the team's Big Three against the overmatched Suns, powering the Pelicans to the fifth spot in the Western Conference standings with three regular-season games remaining. Holiday finished 8-of-15 from the field, including 4-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. His four triples were the most in a single game since he five shots from downtown in Denver back on Dec. 15.
Apr 7 - 12:59 AM

Jrue Holiday posted 12 points across 34 minutes in Sunday's 109-104 loss against Oklahoma City.

Holiday hit just 4-of-10 from the field, including 1-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, but he was able to salvage the stat line with eight assists, five rebounds and five steals. His point totals have been fluctuating lately, but he has been an early-round player in 9-cat leagues this season. He and his teammates are off until Wednesday when the tanking Grizzlies pay a visit to the Crescent City.
Apr 1 - 10:08 PM

Jrue Holiday triple-doubled in Tuesday's loss to the Blazers with 21 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

He hit all three free throws and was 9-of-17 from the field, adding two key blocks in crunch time with six turnovers. That's Holiday's first triple-double of the season and the third of his career. He's been a second-round player in 9-category leagues this season and is one of just seven players averaging 19-5-4. He'll have a few days off before Friday's excellent matchup vs. Cleveland's 28th ranked defense.
Mar 27 - 11:32 PM

Jrue Holiday had a forgettable night in Saturday's loss in Houston, scoring 10 points with six turnovers.

It was an ugly night for the point guard, as he was also a dismal 5-of-17 from the field in addition to the six turnovers. He salvaged the fantasy stat line somewhat with four rebounds, four assists and two steals, but he killed everyone in field-goal percentage and turnovers. He'll look for a bounce-back game Tuesday against the visiting Trail Blazers.
Mar 24 - 10:49 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 26 points on 12-of-16 shooting Thursday, to go with one 3-pointer, six assists, three rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes.

Holiday had a very strong start to this one, missing just three of his first 10 shots through the first half of action, and as an added bonus for 9-cat owners, he didn't commit a single turnover. He was clutch down the stretch, helping New Orleans go on a big run in the fourth to get them back in the game, and this was a solid bounce-back performance after being held to just 10 points on Wednesday.
