Nicolas Batum was held scoreless on just one shot attempt in 26 minutes of action with two rebounds, five assists and one turnover during the Hornets’ loss to the Raptors on Wednesday night.
Batum has at least three assists in each of his last 11 games which is a nice benefit of being a Batum owner. But his scoring is a major crap shoot right now. Just four nights ago against the Blazers, Batum took 17 shots and scored 23 points. In the four games before that and even in the game that followed, Batum didn’t top nine points in a game. Tonight, he only got one shot up and didn’t even score. It’s hard to trust Batum for anything but assists right now.
