Will Barton struggled again in Game 3 on Thursday with four points on 2-of-6 shooting to go with two rebounds and a block.
Barton has been awful this entire series and there's no way around it. He's been dealing with some injuries, but as of now he can't even shoot the ball which has made him unplayable this series. The Spurs are sagging off of him at the 3-point line and allowing him open looks but he missed both of his shots from deep tonight. His minutes should definitely go to Malik Beasley (27 minutes, 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting with five 3-pointers, nine rebounds and two assists) as he's lost confidence in himself. The tricky part is, if Beasley takes his spot, what does that mean for the future of the franchise considering they just inked Barton to a long term deal?
