Bridges produced 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 24 minutes in Monday's 101-92 win over the Knicks.
Bridges has failed to get much of anything going in his rookie season off the Hornets' bench, posting just a handful games with double-digit scoring and a season-high of nine rebounds. Bridges showed Monday night that he has the ability to put both together on any given night, which may lead to a few extra minutes moving forward.
Bridges tallied 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and an assist across 22 minutes Thursday against Sacramento.
Bridges shot a solid 66.7 percent from the field drained one of three attempts from deep in a 114-95 victory. The 20-year-old was one of a few bench players who turned in big nights, as the Hornets bench accounted for 75 of their 114 points. Thursday marked Bridges' first double-digit scoring performance since Dec. 15, and he's averaging just 3.6 points along with 3.7 boards and 1.1 assists through eight contests in January.
Bridges supplied 17 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, and two blocks in 28 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 loss to the Lakers.
Bridges led the team in minutes, posted a career high scoring total, and swatted two blocks for the seventh time through 28 appearances, as the lopsided score resulted in coach James Borrego turning to some of his younger players. The only consistent thing about the role Bridges has held this year has been its inconsistency, as he barely reaches double-digit minutes on some nights and then earns 20-plus minutes on others.
Bridges totaled 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 121-104 loss to the Timberwolves.
Bridges played 20 minutes in Wednesday's loss, ending with 10 points and very little else. Bridges is set for some additional run with Marvin Williams (shoulder) set to miss at least the next week. The rookie certainly has some upside but is yet to really break out. If you grabbed him off the waivers, it is probably worth giving him another game to see how things play out.
With Marvin Williams (shoulder) out at least a week, Bridges could be in position for increased minutes.
Williams exited Sunday's game against the Pelicans in the second quarter with a sprained shoulder, and the Hornets have since stated that they'll re-evaluate the veteran in a week, meaning he'll miss at least the next three games. It was Bridges who started the second half in Williams' place Sunday, and he finished with a career-best 16 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3PT) to go with eight rebounds and two blocks in 29 minutes of action. Coach James Borrego is yet to announce who will replace Williams in the starting five, but Bridges will certainly be among the candidates, and even if he doesn't start, he'll be set for a larger role off the bench. Charlotte is off Monday and Tuesday before playing three games in five nights.
