Avery Bradley seems to be able to contribute at times if he gets minutes!

Lake Show Life knew that if Avery Bradley could get some steady minutes on the floor, he could do some damage. For at least this game, it seems to be the right assessment.

Bradley is cooking with fish grease at this point, knocking down 5-of-7 shots from distance to finish with 21 points. When Bradley is effective, he comes out of the locker room aggressive and looking for his shot. At least for the last six games through to the beginning of February, it is working very well.

Since the beginning of the month, Avery Bradley is shooting an astonishing 62 percent from the field. He’s not Damian Lillard (But at this point of the season, who is?), but has knocked down a Lillard like number of 3-point shots. Bradley has dropped 18-of-30 amounting to 60 percent in his last six games.

Avery Bradley usually gets around 20 minutes a game. In this game, he got 30 minutes. Now the question is, which player on the roster will lose minutes if Bradley keeps his hot streak going?

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played four minutes the entire game. Alex Caruso played seven minutes. Both players have contributed a lot this season. Jerking minutes around will not help either player’s confidence, especially KCP.

Troy Daniels getting 17 minutes will have fans questioning the rotation of Frank Vogel and why. Is he trying to figure out who to cut for the upcoming player on the buyout market?

Who knows.
