In 30 minutes of action Bender only managed to score three points on 1-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, five turnovers and five fouls.
This game will help the young rookie realize that he has a long way to go at the age of 18. His shot was simply off tonight and should get it rolling again. Bender started at the small forward position and struggled against the more athletic forward Jaylen Brown. With P.J. Tucker, Alex Len, Jared Dudley and Marquese Chriss all looking for minutes, Bender will need to step it up significantly to be a fantasy asset this season.
