Hawks' Kent Bazemore: Hits 20-plus points for third time of season
Bazemore recorded a team-high 21 points (8-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt) to go with four assists, one rebound and one steal across 27 minutes in Sunday's 109-94 loss to the Lakers.
Heading into Sunday, Bazemore had averaged 4.0 points per game on a combined 4-of-28 (14.3%) shooting from the floor over his previous three contests, so he certainly needed the bounce-back outing to restore the confidence of fantasy owners. Perhaps the matchup against one of his former teams in the Lakers provided some extra incentive for Bazemore to show out. He'll have a similar opportunity Monday against the Warriors, with whom he spent the first one and a half seasons of his career.
