Miles Bridges totaled 2 points (0-7 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, zero steals, zero blocks, two fouls, and one turnover in 18 minutes in the Hornets’ loss to the Trailblazers 115 – 112 on Monday.
In a game that remained competitive throughout, Bridges struggled to find his rhythm. Only playing 18 minutes, Bridges put up a stat line that shows how much more the talented forward needs to grow to be a reliable fixture in the Hornets’ offense. Although Bridges is very capable of having these kinds of games, his potential still outweighs the negatives. The Hornets are still alive, and when they look to tighten up their play, they will be looking in Bridges’ direction for him to be a significant part of that movement.
