Bridges had seven points (3-13 FG, 1-7 3PT), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in Sunday's loss to the Bucks. It was a rough shooting night for Bridges, but he brought effort on the defensive end and now has five blocks over his last two games. The Michigan State product had scored in double-figures in 13 straight games prior to Sunday.
Bridges supplied 17 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a steal in 26 minutes during the Hornets' 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday night. Bridges had seven of the Hornets' first nine points, and poured in 17 points in the first half. That effort was followed by a goose egg in the second half scoring column, as the Pacers pulled away and Charlotte coach James Borrego yanked the starters. Despite being in the midst of a great stretch, trends like this are becoming a theme in Bridges' young career, as he has yet to prove he can adjust to defenses on the fly.
Bridges amassed 20 points (8-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists and three steals in 20 minutes during Friday's Team USA victory over Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge. Bridges scored 13 of his 20 points during a third-quarter run that saw Team USA take control of what was an entertaining game. Bridges has been much better of late for the Hornets, putting up top-80 numbers over the past two weeks. The Hornets have already exceeded many expectations this season and are undoubtedly going to look to their youth moving forward. Despite a number of questions remaining, Bridges should be able to be a consistent 12-team asset the rest of the way.
Bridges posted 20 points (6-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 115-108 win over the Timberwolves. Bridges was able to make an impact on both sides of the ball, racking up at least 20 points, one steal and one block for the third time this season. Wednesday also marked the eighth straight contest in which Bridges has attempted double-digit shots -- a stretch in which he's averaging 19.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 34.4 minutes.
Bridges scored a game-high 18 points (7-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 87-76 win over the Pistons. Neither team shot better than 37.5 percent from the floor, so Bridges' performance was fairly impressive under the circumstances. The second-year forward is emerging as one of the Hornets' go-to players, averaging 19.8 points, 7.8 boards and 2.2 threes through five games in February.
