Bledsoe finished with 26 points (9-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 29 minutes before getting ejected in Wednesday's loss against the Nets.
Bledsoe was ejected with less than two minutes left in the third quarter after arguing a foul call. He still finished the game as the Pelicans' leading scorer while extending his streak of double-digit offensive performances to eight. Notably, this was his first 20-point effort since way back on Feb. 6 against Memphis.
Bledsoe posted 14 points (4-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 33 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Hawks.
Bledsoe finished the game as the Pelicans' second-best scorer despite his subpar performance from the field, but he seems to be trending in the right direction of late with seven straight games putting up double-digit scoring figures. That's a step in the right direction considering he averaged just 8.2 points per game across 13 contests last month.
Bledsoe has reached double figures in the scoring column in each of the Pelicans' last six games, averaging 14.5 points while chipping in 4.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 three-pointers in 36.3 minutes per contest over that stretch.
While Bledsoe's production is on the rise again after he was held to single digits in scoring seven times in an eight-game stretch before his recent outburst, it bears mentioning that he's converted only 38 percent of his field-goal attempts during these recent six contests. Bledsoe has reclaimed fantasy relevance largely due to the lack of healthy bodies available for the Pelicans, with head coach Stan Van Gundy feeding him heavy minutes as a result. Over the six games in question, all of Lonzo Ball (five games), Brandon Ingram (three), Zion Williamson (three), Josh Hart (two), Steven Adams (one) and Kira Lewis (one) have missed time at some point. Ball has since returned to the lineup, but expect Bledsoe's fantasy value to trend back down once Ingram, Williamson, Adams and Lewis are likely back in action in the near future.
Bledsoe totaled 14 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two blocks and two steals across 46 minutes Thursday in the Pelicans' overtime loss to the Magic.
It wasn't the most efficient of shooting efforts for Bledsoe, but it was one of his best all-around performances this season. He posted five boards and five dimes in the same game for just the fifth time this season, and it was the first time he had multiple blocks and steals in the same contest. He appears to have gotten back on track as he has scored in double figures in four straight after doing so just three times in his previous 10 outings.
Bledsoe delivered 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and two steals across 34 minutes in Friday's loss against the Nuggets.
Bledsoe didn't have his best shooting performance, but he still finished as New Orleans' second-best scorer behind Zion Williamson, who carried the team offensively with a career-best 39-point outing. Bledsoe also ended just one assist shy of putting up his third double-double of the season. Bledsoe scoring in double digits in just two of his previous nine appearances suggests his value isn't entirely high at the moment. However, this performance might boost his upside and confidence going forward.
Bledsoe provided two points (1-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 128-111 win over the Lakers.
Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and the rest of the Pelicans' young players took over Tuesday's easy victory against the shorthanded Lakers. Bledsoe has struggled mightily lately. Over the past eight games, he's averaged 5.5 points on 28.6 percent shooting from the field, 20.8 percent from three and 58.3 percent from the charity stripe. That's in addition to just 3.5 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 26.6 minutes. The Pelicans could be looking to unload the veteran at the trade deadline, but there probably won't be many suitors.
Bledsoe was held scoreless (0-4 FG) in Friday's win against Cleveland, contributing three assists and one rebound in 20 minutes.
The 31-year-old had a night to forget, missing all four of his attempts from the field in a blowout win. Bledsoe has struggled over his past three games, averaging just 3.7 points, 3.3 assists, 2.0 rebounds while shooting a dreadful 15 percent from the field in that span. Bledsoe could cede playing time to Nickeil Alexander-Walker if the Pelicans fall back in the Western Conference, but for now he's locked in as the starting two-guard.
Bledsoe contributed 12 points (3-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 42 minutes during Wednesday's 128-124 loss to Chicago.
Bledsoe exceeded 40 minutes for the first time this season and tied his season high in dimes in the process. After seeing his minutes drop into the mid-20s only two weeks ago, the veteran point guard has turned things around in a big way. In fact, he's heading into the All-Star break playing arguably his best basketball of the season. Over the last five games, he's posted averages of 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.8 steals.
Bledsoe collected 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Pelicans' 129-124 victory over the Jazz on Monday.
Bledsoe was able to score in double figures for the fourth straight game while also playing his usual solid perimeter defense. In his first year with the Pelicans he has taken more of an off-ball role starting alongside Lonzo Ball, which has affected his assist numbers. On the season, Bledsoe has averaged 12.7 points, 3.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.
Bledsoe scored 19 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go along with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 34 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Spurs.
Bledsoe's 19 points were his highest mark in his last 10 games. His involvement in the Pelicans' offense has increased of late, as he's attempted double-digit shots from the field in three consecutive contests. Though he's matching a career-low by averaging 0.8 steals per game on the season, Bledsoe now has at least one steal in that same three-game span.
Bledsoe had 16 points (5-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists and four rebounds in Thursday's loss to Milwaukee.
Bledsoe and Lonzo Ball (6-10 3Pt) accounted for 10 of the Pelicans' 13 made three-pointers, but it wasn't enough, as the Bucks held on for a 129-125 victory. It was a nice bounceback game for Bledsoe, who'd scored 12 points or fewer in each of his previous six games. Bledsoe's 13 field goal attempts were his most in any contest since Feb. 6.
Bledsoe managed 11 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals during Wednesday's win over the Pistons.
The veteran recored double figures for the third time over the past four games, although Bledsoe hasn't scored more than 12 points since Feb. 12 against Dallas. Following a six-game stretch in which he averaged 18.5 points from Jan. 23 to Feb. 3, the guard has slumped to just 10.1 points on 43.5 percent shooting over his last 11 games.
Bledsoe had seven points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 144-113 win over the Grizzlies.
The 31-year-old has now attempted single-digit shots in each of the past four games, and he's shooting 39.3 percent from the field during that stretch. Bledsoe will look to get back on track in the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday versus Portland.
Bledsoe logged six points (1-9 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds and two assists over 31 minutes in Sunday's 123-112 loss to the Pistons.
Bledsoe had plenty of looks from beyond the arc Sunday, but he only converted on 11.1 percent of his attempts in the loss to Detroit. He was somewhat effective on the boards, but the 31-year-old has struggled to generate much consistency during his first year with the Pelicans.
Bledsoe is shooting 40.7 percent from three this season while averaging a career-high 2.3 made three-pointers per game.
While Bledsoe's overall scoring, rebounding and assists numbers are slightly down this season, he's emerged as a much more dependable outside threat after converting just 34.3 percent of his attempts in Milwaukee last season. Over his last 15 games, Bledsoe is shooting 41.9 percent from deep and 44.9 percent from the field, though he's struggling at the line (61.3 percent FT) during that stretch.
Bledsoe recorded 21 points (7-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists and four rebounds across 31 minutes in Saturday's 118-109 win over the Grizzlies.
After scoring only five points against the Pacers on Friday, Bledsoe cranked up his shot attempts and nailed four three-pointers in the win. Although the 30-year old isn't posting the same numbers that he had in Milwaukee, his ability to explode with huge lines occurs at a higher frequency. Some disappointing evenings are an unfortunate result, but the overall effect is an upward trend. The synergy with his teammates seems to improve nightly, and if he can keep his shot attempts up, a career season could be on the horizon.
Bledsoe logged five points (2-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists over 27 minutes in Friday's 114-113 win over the Pacers.
Bledsoe had scored in double figures during each of the last six games, but he only attempted six shots in Friday's narrow victory. Although he was the only starter who didn't top 10 points against Indiana, Bledsoe is averaging 16.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists over 32.1 minutes per game across the past seven contests.
Bledsoe had 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-8 3PT, 1-1 FT), five assists and four rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.
The veteran appears to have picked up some confidence of late, as he's now scored in double-figures in four straight games. In that span, Bledsoe is averaging 21.5 points, 4.5 boards, 4.0 assists and 3.8 made three-pointers.
Bledsoe finished with 25 points (9-21 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four assists, two boards and one block in 34 minutes of a 131-126 win against the Bucks on Friday.
Bledsoe matched a career-high seven three-pointers made in the game against his former team. It was his third straight game with double-digit points, marking his second longest streak of the season. He'll face the Rockets on Saturday.
Bledsoe delivered 18 points (6-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 36 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.
Bledsoe was one of three Pelicans who scored in double digits, with Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram being the others -- both ended with 32 points. Bledsoe benefited from Lonzo Ball's ankle injury to work as the team's main playmaker, and he could embrace that role once again when the Pelicans take on the Bucks on Friday. That should translate into an uptick in his usage and improved stats across the board.
