Bradley breaks slump?

Posted by shawn cassidy on April 2, 2013 at 5:35 AM




 Bradley has been slumping for the last three weeks, averaging 7.6 points while shooting 32.3 percent from the field (43 of 133) and 30.8 percent from beyond the 3-point arc (8 of 26).

 


“He needed it,” said C’s coach Doc Rivers. “It was good. I think five games in a row we’ve run the first play of the game for him, and finally he came up with a jumper. I just really believe he needed it to go in. I told him after the game the arc was back on his shot; it wasn’t flat, so that was good to see. I think that’ll make him a better defender, too. He’ll be able to relax.”



“I haven’t been playing as well as I wanted to. Tonight it was good to see some shots go in. It was just confidence. It’s always good to see them go in. When you’re not making shots and you’re not able to help your team, it’s hard. It was hard for me, because I didn’t feel like I was performing well for my teammates. I’m just going to continue to play hard, if I’m making shots or not. That’s all I can do.”


Bradley needs to regain his confidence, it's all between the ears with Bradley, and thankfully he showed some life Monday night in Minnesota. Bradley scored 19 points off of 8-of-14 shooting. The Celtics need his defense more then his offense, but he tends to have issues on the defensive end when his offensive game is under performing.

I wish Rondo would watch Bradley and realize that if you play tough D, it cuts you an immense around of slack.

Bradley has the tools to be a solid offensive player. I think his offense has detoured me from taking this team serious.
