Kent Bazemore was moved to the bench on Saturday night but ended up having a productive game with nine points, four rebounds, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
Bazemore was a major source of frustrating in the immediate aftermath of Rodney Hood's injury, but over the last two weeks it looks like he's found his footing. He's a top-110/125 player (8/9-cat) in that time and has 10 steals and seven blocks over his last seven contests, not to mention at least one 3-pointer in each of his last eight games. It won't always be exciting but Baze should be on rosters in 12-team leagues. Of course it has to be mentioned that he got extra run with Skal Labissiere leaving the game three minutes in, but that also means that he'll have more opportunity to produce going forward.
