Also we knew his offensive stats would go down when he started playing less minutes with Cole.drsd wrote:Bamba goes 1-5 on 2 points in 19 minutes played. That equalled out a -20 in his plus/minus. Franks, Canndady, and Randle all had "better" stat lines. I am not sure coach Clifford will buy into Bamba early next season unless there is a transformation in his game over the off-season. RIght now Bamba is playing at a G-league level of quality.
When Bamba averages 10ppg/6rpg we can start talking about off-nights. My question: how often does Bamba have an on-night?
He has only had one game this season with more than 10 rebounds.
He is averaging 1 FT attempt per game, which is a rate of 0.1 per minute played. He is shooting well below 50%. These are not competent numbers for a Center.
His TO to assist is above 1, which is awful. The only other Magicians with that are Hampton and Carter. ((Okeke's is 0.3, which is awesome)).
None of that is on coach. Bamba is playing poorly this season.
