Interested to know what people think about the lack of production from our bench these last few games. I think it is due to Bledsoe's regression

Yup. Bledsoe has regressed. But it's also Crawford too.

Why aren't people concerened about Blake barely averaging 17ppg?

Crawford and Barnes are journeymen for a reason. This team isn't going deep in the playoffs with Blake playing like this.

Another thread made while bored. I hate to sound mean, but the bench is fine.

I think the injury is what's causing Bledsoe's recent play...Crawford's coming back to his LT averages. We'll be find.

idk why everyone says bledsoe regressed, especially when he has a lingering injury on his hip. we need crawford and barnes to make their shots. if not, at least play balls out on defense to create offense.

So if Bledsoe hasn't played the way he was before he got injured, what is a good word to describe that? Regressed?

You picked the worst game to make that point. He also left the game on his second airball.

^ not regressed, tentative. he has lost his edge on defense a bit and that is key cuz he creates a lot of his offense on that end.

Slump? A regression to me is a long term thing. Although tonight Bledsoe actually had his best game in a while.

Maybe to you but that is not the proper way to define the word.

I look at bledsoe's ability to run the offense and it is not nearly as good as it was at the beginning g of the season. The defensive effort is also not as good, too many plays where he is lagging behind the rest out of frustration. He is better than this. I thought e defense e last three games was awful from everyone not just him, but IMO he is as vital to our second u it as Barnes and jamal crawford

No, regressed. That has been his trend. Tentativeness could be a possible cause for his recent regression.

The kid's getting a lot of new attention with the streak. Vinny's gonna reel him back in. He's going to be be fine. I hope we can keep him.

I really think VDN should make Barnes a starter and have Butler come off the bench.Butler would get a lot more looks off the bench.After watching these games I can't help but notice how many open 3's Barnes gets.Earlier in the season he wasn't making them but has picked it up.If Butler got those looks he would knock them down a lot more consistently.

Also a big problem we saw in most of our loses and in the last 2 games is that if Crawford struggles so does the whole bench to a point.I think Butler could really help out because people can't leave him open like people do Barnes which would mean less double teams on Crawford.

And with Barnes as a starter he can really help out on defense and can run with our starters and get us easy buckets for him and them.Butler is older and his legs aren't what they used to be.He has became a spot up shooter and I think that would work well with our bench.While Barnes style of play works a lot better with our starters imo.
