Bazemore put up 16 points (5-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 32 minutes in a 108-107 win over the Knicks on Monday.
Bazemore has hit double digits in scoring in three consecutive games, a welcome development after he reached that benchmark only three times in his preceding 10 games. He's shooting a respectable 45.9 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from three-point range during that span, which has prompted coach Mike Budenholzer to hand Bazemore a few extra minutes. Bazemore seemingly has more security in his starting role now that Kyle Korver has been traded away, but he's still largely been a disappointment this season after inking a four-year, $70 million contract in the summer.
Bazemore scored 24 points (8-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding two rebounds, two steals and an assist in 28 minutes during Sunday's 111-98 win over the Bucks.
It's his first game with 20 or more points since the end of November, and just the second time he's shot better than 50 percent from the floor in his last 13 games. Bazemore's offensive struggles this season have made him impossible to roster in any but the deepest fantasy formats, but the Hawks have still won eight of their last nine and will likely to continue to be patient with him. Sunday's performance could be a sign that he's breaking out of his slump, but you'll likely want to see more evidence of a turnaround before picking him up.
Bazemore registered 12 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-9 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block across 40 minutes during a 110-108 win over Oklahoma City on Monday.
Bazemore got his first start since his return from the knee injury and played 40 minutes, which tied a season high. He has strung together two straight solid all-around games as his minutes have continued to increase. His value is on the rise. Tim Hardaway, on the other hand, moved back to the bench for Atlanta and played 22 minutes.
Bazemore will start in Monday's game against the Thunder but may still play limited minutes, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After playing three straight games off the bench following his return from a knee injury, Bazemore will return to the starting lineup and likely send Tim Hardaway back to the bench. Bazemore is coming off a performance Saturday where he posted 17 points, five assists and four rebounds in 30 minutes as a reserve and has slowly seen his minutes increase in each of the three games since is return.
Bazemore contributed 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one block across 30 minutes during a 107-99 loss to Charlotte on Saturday.
Bazemore was great off the bench after he had struggled in the two previous games since his return from a knee injury. Saturday's game marked the first time Bazemore has scored in double figures so far in December. Hardaway got his fifth consecutive start in place of Bazemore and scored 21 points, so we'll see if he stays in the starting lineup Monday against Oklahoma City.
