There are three scoring periods left until default H2H playoffs commence. I hope your teams are surging and not slippin’. ***** A few stream-of-consciousness thoughts on trades this week (not all of them, *cough* Malachi…
February 6, 2019, 11:51 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges filled up the stat sheet in Wednesday's 88-116 blowout loss to the Jazz with nine points, three rebounds, three assists, one triple, two steals and one block in a team-high 40 minutes.
The Suns have been leaning on Bridges to be their defensive stopper in recent games and it looks like he's locked into that role. This gives him a secure path to consistent minutes and hopefully solid production for the rest of the season.
February 4, 2019, 11:30 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges had a decent line on Monday with seven points on 3-of-9 shooting to go with a 3-pointer, four rebounds, five assists and three steals.
Bridges did everything but score the ball well today which is fine considering he's been on a bit of a heater lately. He was all over James Harden in the fourth quarter and came up with some big defensive stops, but James Harden can only be slowed down so much. All of his points came in the fourth quarter and saved what could have been an even worse night. The shots should start falling again soon and top-70 value post All-Star Break is well within play.
February 3, 2019, 12:16 amMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges had another solid outing in Saturday's home loss, going 7-of-10 from the floor for 20 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and five 3-pointers.
Bridges has been a top-65/45 guy over the last month and should maintain a 30 mpg role (or thereabout) for the rest of the season. It'll be exciting to see how his game grows when the Suns tilt things to make him more of a focal point, and needless to say he's a must-start option these days.
January 30, 2019, 1:27 amMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds, three assists and four steals over 35 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs.
We're not sure why there was discussion about whether Bridges should be rostered but hopefully you were able to benefit from it. He has been a top 50-75 player (9/8 cat) over the last eight games and he's barely involved with the offense, and plenty capable to do that if the Suns give him more looks.
January 23, 2019, 12:18 amMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored seven points on 3-of-11 shooting (including a three) with zero rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 29 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Wolves.
Add three more money counters into the bucket. He's a beast in that department with 3.7 per game over the last two weeks when most folks probably think he's slumping. Buy low while he's only producing in the top 80-100 range and folks are wondering about drops. To be clear, he's a must-own/must-add player.
January 20, 2019, 11:34 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges played 29 minutes in Sunday’s loss to the Wolves and scored three points with three steals on 1-of-3 shooting.
Although he does not add much to the box score aside from defensive stats, he is a middle-round value over the past month due to his efficiency and defensive numbers. His consistency is an issue, but his defense will always keep him in the middle-round value range.
January 19, 2019, 8:59 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored nine points on 3-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with three steals and a block in 26 minutes of action.
Bridges has the capacity to hold mid-round value because of his consistent defensive production. He is as inconsistent as they come but is still hovering in the top 120-130 range in the past two weeks. Let's see if his production would change once everyone gets their rest after the all-star break.
January 17, 2019, 10:25 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges finished Thursday's loss to the Raptors with 15 points (5-of-8 FG), five rebounds, four assists, a block and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.
Bridges continues to float around the late rounds and looks to be lining up for a nice finish to the year. The Suns should ask him to do more — from scoring to playmaking to defending — and it'll result in more playing time and hopefully more stats. He's a top-140/120 (8/9-cat) option even with the usual ups and downs.
January 15, 2019, 10:39 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored seven points on 3-of-3 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals over 30 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss.
Bridges is bringing back top 125-150 value (9/8 cat) on the season in just 26.2 mpg and he has been a top 70-100 guy (9/8 cat) in 30.6 mpg over the last month. His value is really easy to peg right now and there is a very good chance that he gets better as he gets more comfortable, and also as he gets asked to do more.
January 9, 2019, 4:49 amMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges played just 22 minutes in Tuesday's 115-111 win over the Kings, scoring two points on 1-of-1 shooting with four assists and four steals.
Bridges saw a few less minutes because Kelly Oubre was going off and Josh Jackson wasn't killing the Suns in this one. Bridges has been a top 70-100 guy (9/8 cat) over the last month and he hasn't even scratched the surface yet. His elite defensive potential alone makes him worth the hold, and he's a must-add player if dropped.
January 6, 2019, 10:57 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored just five points on 1-of-6 shooting in 31 minutes of action in a loss to the Hornets on Sunday.
He was able to add three rebounds, one 3-pointer and three defensive stats to the box score. He has the ability to hold middle-round value, but he will drop an ineffective performance like this one every now and then. Hold on to Bridges.
