Nemanja Bjelica scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds and three assists over 21 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Nuggets.
Bjelica's defensive struggles are well known to folks that cover the league but they've been much, much worse this year now that he's being asked to do so much. And some of them are just terrible effort. With the Kings needing competent defensive players in the worst way, he might not get as many minutes as he would if the team needed his offense. Right now they can't afford his defense.
