IDK, I see his offense is better than it was last season. He just isn't used to handling it at the end of the game situations. CP3 and Book have been doing that. CP3 said the team is going to put more emphasis on Cam and Bridges supplying more offense and getting them ready to carry more load, especially in the fourth. Tonight they tried that. They have implied they know being prepared for post season is more important than winning games now. Seems like they are doing that.
Bridges is in a weird scenario. He’s always got the toughest offensive assignment on a nightly basis. Then on offense, CP3 and Book control so much of the action and DA gets his touches. When Cam J starts, he’s looking to shoot 3’s. Mikal isn’t a great off the bounce player as we know so a lot of his shots are in transition, cuts and open looks generated by other teammates.
While he did mess up the last play, his biggest issue is he looks to make the “right play” not always looking for his shot in rhythm. And then when you hesitate, that instance allows the defense to recover and the advantage is lost. You are what you are, but even if he gets limited opportunities, he’s gotta be more aggressive.
