The Blazers would like to see some more consistent aggression out of Allen Crabbe.
On getting Crabbe more involved in the offense, teammate C.J. McCollum said, “trying to get him more than 10 shots, that’s the goal.” He signed a hefty 4-year, $75 million deal last offseason but hasn’t seen much of a jump in production. Last season saw the young guard average 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.8 steals. This season Crabbe is producing 10.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.6 steals. His scoring has gone up on less shots per game (only 0.5) thanks to a jump in three point efficiency- up to .444 after being .393 last year. He’s floating around the top-150 at the moment and could jump a little higher if this aggression talk yields tangible results.
