Festus Ezeli scored four points on 2-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Thursday in the Warriors’ Game 6 loss to the Cavs.
Ezeli was a -17 in his 15 minutes and though that’s comparable to his teammates his miscues were felt on nearly every play. He started to turn things around early in the second half but quickly fell into disarray. Steve Kerr basically just watched it happen and he’s probably afraid of Tristan Thompson on the glass, but watching somebody get repeatedly torched is usually a good time to try something else. Ezeli’s issues have been present throughout the playoffs too, so he has probably cost himself some money as a restricted free agent.
