Warriors' SF Kent Bazemore dropped 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-7 3PT, 3-3 FT) to go along with four rebounds, two assists, and one block in a Warriors' 119-116 win over Utah.
Bazemore had his highest scoring game for the month of May, dropping 19 points in an important game for the Dubs. Bazemore is averaging 7.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game on the year, but is averaging 9.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.9 assists over his last 10 games. Bazemore is getting hot at the right time, and his productivity may shift him into fantasy consideration in deeper leagues.
Kent Bazemore notched 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, six steals, three assists and two blocks as the Wizards cast a spell on Golden State on Wednesday.
Bazemore had himself a monster evening on Wednesday highlighted by a whopping six steals. He obviously led his team in that department but also co-lead with nine boards. Bazemore posted a season high 52.3 fantasy points on the evening (DraftKings), rewarding those who took the risk to utilize him in DFS. Still, Bazemore remains volatile and not a lock for significant minutes going forward, so his fantasy potential for now remains untapped.
Kent Bazemore bagged 26 points (10-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and three steals as the Warriors outlasted Miami on Wednesday night.
Bazemore's 26 points led his team as his contributions were instrumental in Golden State getting the win. His 26 were his most points in a game this season, a number that surely correlates to his inflated minutes total (38) due to a late scratch for Draymond Green. Bazemore's night was terrific but it's unlikely to be repeated given that his minutes will surely recede when Green returns. If you were lucky enough to incorporate him into your DFS lineup on Wednesday, you were rewarded with 48.1 fantasy points (FanDuel), his most on the season.
Kent Bazemore totaled 20 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes in the Warriors' 134-132 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday.
Bazemore is having a great start to February by scoring a season’s best 20.0 points against the Mavericks. Bazemore’s 20.0 point game marks only his second double-digit scoring performance this season. So far, he is averaging 19.0 minutes, 11.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game and shooting 60.0 percent from the floor and 45.5 percent from beyond the arc this month. Although he doesn’t get a tremendous amount of time in the rotation, his role is consistent, and he is averaging at least 15.0 minutes a game. He has the talent to put together some worthwhile performances in limited amounts of time and could be a useful add-in season-long deep-league play. With the Warriors less than 100.0 percent, he could see more time and usage, making him a possible flier option in DFS formats.
Shooting guard Kent Bazemore has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, per Shams Charania.
Bazemore spent the 2019-20 season playing for both Portland and Sacramento while averaging 8.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.4 assists. He'll likely continue to be the back-up shooting guard to Andrew Wiggins in the 2020-21 season, leaving him with some decent fantasy value on such a dynamically explosive offense.
