Bledsoe notched eight points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists and two steals over 19 minutes during Friday's 102-101 win over the 76ers. Bledsoe continues to play 20-25 minutes as the primary backup point guard to Reggie Jackson.

Bledsoe ended with 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, nine assists and three steals across 26 minutes during Tuesday's 87-85 win over the Nuggets. Bledsoe inflicted significant damage in 26 minutes off the bench and was the team's best ball distributor by a wide margin. Bledsoe's production correlates directly with Reggie Jackson, but the two point guards shared the floor during the Clippers' huge rally in the fourth quarter. The team opted for this scheme in the final stanza instead of running with Batum, and it proved to be far more effective than their approach in the first half. Increased involvement for Bledsoe in the current injury scenario could be on the horizon based on Tuesday's win.

However, Bledsoe recorded a team-high plus-23 in the box score and led the Clippers in assists Sunday. Bledsoe's role is at an interesting juncture. He likely has better days ahead, but that may be dependent on the Clippers overall performance as well as the performance of other young guards on the roster.
