Personal Bio

Dozier was born Oct. 25, 1996 in Columbia, South Carolina, where he attended high school at Spring Valley. After being named 2015 South Carolina Mr. Basketball and scoring 14 points in the 2015 McDonald's All-American game, Dozier elected to spend his collegiate career at South Carolina. It was the same school chosen in the 1980s by his father, Perry Dozier and his uncle, Terry Dozier. Dozier also has two sisters, Amelia and Asia, the latter of which attended South Carolina, as well. While attending USC, Dozier majored in sport and entertainment management. You can follow him on Twitter (@Dozier_Kid).

College/International Summary

Dozier was third in the SEC in three categories -- field-goal attempts (469), two-point field goal attempts (328) and steals (60) -- in the 2016-17 season for South Carolina. Also in that season, the Columbia, South Carolina native was fifth in the SEC in steals per game (1.7). Along with field-goal attempts and two-point field goal attempts, Dozier led the Gamecocks in assists per game (2.8) and total assists (101) while ranking second in points per game (13.9) and total points (501).

April 6, 2021
Dozier totaled eight points (3-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and three steals in a 134-119 victory over the Pistons on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Dozier saw additional opportunities with Jamal Murray (knee) out of the lineup and had a solid two-way performance. The guard was able to match his season-high total in steals and also contributed as a distributor on offense. Dozier has been struggling offensively over his last seven games, averaging just 3.0 points on 21.1 percent shooting from the field and 16.7 percent shooting from three.

Past Season Summaries
2019

After opening the 2019-20 campaign by putting up big numbers with the G League's Windy City Bulls, Dozier earned himself a fairly regular role in the Nuggets' rotation during the season's second half and through the playoffs. Across 18 games (16 starts) with Windy City, Dozier averaged 21.4 points, 7.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.7 steals per G League game. He made an instant impact in his Denver debut Jan. 15 against Charlotte, posting 12 points, four boards and two assists in just 13:02 on the court. Dozier went on to appear in 29 NBA games, a career high. On Jan. 22, Dozier put up 15 points off the bench against the Rockets. Following the NBA's coronavirus-induced pause, Dozier played a far bigger role off the bench during seeding play in the Orlando bubble, cracking double-digit points five times in eight games. On Aug. 10, he set a new career high with 18 points versus the Lakers. He then eclipsed that mark four days later, Aug. 14 against Toronto, closing out the regular season with a new career high in scoring: 20 points, including five threes on six attempts, plus eight assists, five rebounds and two steals. Dozier went on to appear in a dozen playoff games during the Nuggets' run to the Western Conference Finals, averaging 3.2 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 10.4 minutes per game.

2018

During the 2018-19 season, P.J. Dozier played six games with the Boston Celtics and 46 games with the G League Maine Red Claws. Dozier played in two NBA games for OKC during the 2017-18 season, though saw only three minutes of run. He made his Boston Celtic debut on Nov. 30th, 2018, scoring seven points over six minutes of playing time during a blowout win over the Cavaliers. Ten days later, he'd once again grace the Boston parquet floor for a brief two minutes of run in a win over the Pelicans. On Apr. 9, the last game of the Celtic regular season, Dozier delivered his first NBA double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds, plus five assists, in a win over Washington. In between Celtic appearances, Dozier was spectacular for the Maine Red Claws. Over 46 G League games, Dozier averaged 21.1 points, 6.7 assists, 6.6 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game for Crustacean Nation. On Dec. 16, he produced a triple-double during a win over the Long Island Nets. On that night, the 6-foot-6 wing generated 25 points, 11 dimes and 10 boards. Dozier had 13 double-doubles during the G League season.

2017

Dozier was not selected in the 2017 NBA Draft, and had a brief stint with Dallas before catching on with Oklahoma City on a two-way deal. Dozier spent time with the both the Thunder and the G League Oklahoma City Blue during the 2017-18 season. Dozier played in 43 games for the Blue. During his time in the G League, he averaged 13.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.3 made threes per contest. HIs best scoring game came Jan. 28 against the South Bay Lakers, when he recorded 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting. Dozier also had two double-doubles while with the G League affiliate. His first came Jan. 23, when he recorded 17 points and 12 rebounds against the Northern Arizona Suns. His best assist total of the year (7) came two days later against the Santa Cruz Warriors. Dozier was called up to the Thunder briefly in February, and made his NBA debut Feb. 8 against the Lakers. He scored his first two points and had a rebound across two minutes on the floor. He appeared in his only other NBA game that season Feb. 11, going scoreless in one minute of action. Dozier then returned to the G League for the rest of the year.
