Bledsoe posted 30 points (11-26 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-13 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two steals across 45 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime win over the Suns.
Bledsoe generated his best performance thus far in a Bucks uniform against his old squad, with only his game-high seven turnovers serving as a blemish on an otherwise dominant effort. The seven-year veteran was frequently booed by his former home fans, and with good reason, as Bledsoe often penetrated the Suns' defense on his way to the second-highest scoring total for Milwaukee on the night. The 27-year-old has produced double-digit scoring efforts in six of his first seven games in his new digs, leading to averages of 14.7 points, 4.9 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 steals.
Beldsoe totaled 14 points (4-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight assists, six rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 victory over the Pistons.
Bledsoe continued to look more comfortable in his new surroundings, as he begins to find his place in the offense. His scoring has been consistent over his first four games, but his owners will be delighted to see his defensive numbers increasing, as well as his assists. Bledsoe has not played alongside this sort of talent for many years, so it is to be expected that it will take some time for him to return to his old form.
Bledsoe (knee) will play in Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Bledsoe bruised his knee in Saturday's victory over the Lakers and subsequently landed on the injury report heading into Monday night. The issue does not appear to be serious though, as he is set to take the court for the third time with his new team. The Kentucky product has posted an average of 12.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 0.5 triples across 30 minutes in two games with the Bucks. He figures to see similar minutes Monday assuming avoids any setbacks with his knee.
Bledsoe is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Grizzlies with a right knee contusion, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports.
It's unclear exactly when Bledsoe suffered the injury, but the point guard has dealt with knee issues for majority of his career. There doesn't appear to be much concern surrounding Bledsoe's health, but a decision on his status likely won't come until he attempts to go through pregame warmups. Should Bledsoe be ruled out, Malcolm Brogdon would be in line to take over as the starting point guard once again.
The veteran point guard was impressive, considering he hadn't played in nearly three weeks and only had the benefit of morning shootaround as far as practicing with his new team. Bledsoe worked well with the offense's focal point, Giannis Antetokounmpo, feeding him on multiple occasions for baskets. Bledsoe's diverse skill set should fit in seamlessly with Milwaukee's attack and potentially even give a slight nudge to the already impressive production of the likes of Antetokunmpo and Khris Middleton.
