Buddy Hield struggled with his shot on Friday, going 6-of-16 from the field on his way to 17 points, three 3-pointers and one rebound in 20 minutes off the bench.
Hield saw just 11 minutes off the bench on Thursday with Bogdan Bogdanovic having the game of his life, and while he was more involved in the rotation today, he was still well below his average of 31.3 minutes per game. Luke Walton addressed Buddy’s lack of playing time before the game, saying: “Buddy still has my trust and we need him… he’s a big part of our team.” Walton didn't really live up to those words today, but maybe Hield will get some more burn on Sunday vs. Houston. 7:03 pm (EST)
