Kent Bazemore    G/F  Hawks

 

 

Bazemore collected 20 points (9-18 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 94-93 victory over the Pelicans. Bazemore shot woefully from three-point range, but was extremely efficient getting to the basket and connecting on his mid-range opportunities, allowing him to post a team-high in points. Albeit it was a defensive game, Bazemore still showed flashes of scoring, and his 12 steals over the past 5 games proves he can be a valuable player on both sides of the ball.

Bazemore tallied 13 points (4-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, five steals and four assists across 29 minutes during Monday's 108-107 loss to the Clippers. Bazemore has been one of the league's best sources of steals this season, averaging 1.9 swipes across 28.4 minutes per game -- not to mention 0.7 blocks as well. Monday marked the 14th time this year he's recorded at least three steals, as well as the fourth time he's recorded at least four. That said, he's struggled on offense over the past three games, posting just 11.7 points per game on 34.2 percent shooting, compared to his season averages of 12.5 points per game on 41.0 percent shooting.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kent Bazemore, Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli are all "expendable." With the Hawks rebuilding, they are "pushing" to unload veterans in exchange for draft picks and young assets. Bazemore is owed $18.1 million in 2018-19 with a player option worth $18.1 million in 2019-20, but the Hawks may be able to find a home for him with so many teams in need of wing depth. A move would likely be a bad thing for Bazemore, as he doesn't have much competition in Atlanta and is having a career year with 12.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.6 triples.

Kent Bazemore scored 15 points vs. the Lakers on Sunday, going 6-of-15 from the field with three 3-pointers, three assists, two blocks and one rebound. Bazemore racked up 12 points during a third-quarter flurry, and his relatively low 26 minutes tonight were the result of the score -- he sat out the final 4:53 of a blowout loss. The good news is that his defense basically guarantees his role is safe going forward. During a halftime interview, assistant coach Charles Lee said the Hawks' issues stemmed from players simply not running back on transition defense, which is something Bazemore can't be accused of often, if ever.

Bazemore scored 20 points (7-8 FG, 4-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with three rebounds, four assists and four steals across 29 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 loss to Phoenix. Scoring 20-plus points for the first time since December 12, Bazemore was deadly efficient from the floor, especially from beyond the arc where he sank four three-pointers. For the season, the forward is shooting a career-best 39.3 percent from long range on 4.1 shots per game. Even while averaging 12.1 points in the nine games since his previous 20 point game, Bazemore made at least three shots from three point range in four games.

Kent Bazemore hit 7-of-8 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers and both of his free throws to finish with 20 points, three rebounds, four assists and four steals in 29 minutes of Tuesday's 104-013 loss to the Suns. Unfortunately, he also fouled Devin Booker shooting a 3-pointer (he got all ball from behind, but also smashed the back of Booker's head), which helped hand the Suns the win, as Booker's three free throws put them up by one point with 12.3 seconds left in the game. Baze was great other than that and his 20 points were his highest since posting the same number way back on Dec. 12. Bazemore will look to keep it going on Friday against the Blazers, but the Hawks are stinging after blowing a 12-point lead with five minutes left in the game.

Kent Bazemore hit 7-of-15 shots and just 2-of-5 free throws for 16 points, five rebounds, seven assists, five steals and two blocks in Monday's win over the Heat. His line would have looked a lot better had he made more free throws and not gone 0-for-5 from downtown, but with the five steals and two blocks, we doubt anyone's complaining about his stat line. You never know on what night Baze is going to show up, but he's still averaging 14.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.2 steals, 1.4 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 45 percent shooting over his last five games. He'll have the occasional shooting dud and low-scoring game, but is playing well enough to be used in any fantasy league these days.

Bazemore scored 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, five assists and three steals in 33 minutes during Friday's 96-94 loss to the Grizzlies. His desperation three-pointer at the buzzer clanked off the front of the rim, but otherwise it was a strong performance for Bazemore. The 28-year-old has been alternating solid scoring nights with poor ones lately but has continued to provide value in other categories, resulting in a fantasy-friendly average of 13.2 points, 5.3 boards, 5.3 assists, 2.3 threes and 1.7 steals over the last six games.

Kent Bazemore led the Hawks with a team-high 19 points, but it wasn't enough in Friday's 96-94 loss to the Grizzlies. That's four straight losses for the Hawks. Bazemore hit 8-of-15 shots in 33 minutes, adding five rebounds, five assists, three steals and three triples. He's not the most consistent player, but he can be a lot of fun to deploy on the nights when he hits. Prior to Friday, he had December averages of 11.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples on 39.1 percent shooting, so he's worth owning for the money stats.

Kent Baszemore hit 7-of-13 shots and a career-high 6-of-10 3-pointers for 20 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes of Tuesday's 123-114 loss to the Cavaliers. Bazemore had 19 points and a similar stat line on Saturday, got into foul trouble and fizzled on Sunday, and then came back today for one of the best lines of his career. He's pretty much been hit-or-miss all season long, which is exactly what he's been in the month of December, as well. If he was not owned in your league tonight, someone Is going to pick him after this one. And he should be owned, despite his inconsistency.
