Eric Bledsoe hit just 5-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 34 minutes of Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Celtics.
Bledsoe was on fire and crushing it, including a triple-double on April 9, but he played just 11 minutes in the regular-season finale against the Sixers, and has struggled in both playoff games. He's hit just 9-of-25 shots in the two games in this series and hasn't looked like the same player he was in April, when he averaged a season-best 19.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 1.7 steals and shot 57 percent from the field. He's got time to turn things around against the tough defense of the Celtics, but he better hurry. And when Bledsoe was asked after the game if he takes his matchup against Terry Rozier personally, Bledsoe responded "Who?" And went on to say he didn't even know who that was. Of course he did.

Eric Bledsoe was disappointing in Sunday's Game 1 loss to Boston, finishing with more shot attempts (12) than points (nine).

Bledsoe also had more turnovers (five) than assists (four) and fouled out of the contest. Simply put, the veteran point guard is going to have to be a lot better going forward if the Bucks want to make it out of the first round. For what it's worth, fellow starting guard Tony Snell finished with just two points, three rebounds, and a block in 33 minutes while Malcolm Brogdon notched 16 points, four boards, three assists, a steal, and two triples in 32.5 minutes off the bench.
Apr 15 - 4:45 PM

Eric Bledsoe hit 7-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists and three steals in Monday's 102-86 win over the Magic.

Maybe he was trying to make a statement to Malcolm Brogdon, who was back from his quad injury tonight, or maybe he just felt like ballin' out with Giannis Antetokounmpo in street clothes. Either way, Bledsoe's had a fine season for the Bucks and this was his first triple-double of the year, and just his third double-double, as well. He's feeling it right now, hitting double digits in assists in his last two games and averaging 21.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five. Hopefully he'll be ready to do it again on Wednesday against the Sixers in his regular-season finale.
Apr 9 - 10:58 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points with three rebounds, 10 assists, one block, one steal and two 3-pointers during a 115-102 win over the Knicks on Saturday.

He's playing his best ball of the season and it's not really close. Over his last five games, he's averaged 25.6 points, 3.0 boards, 6.4 dimes, 2.0 steals and 3.2 treys on 61.0 percent from the field and 94.7 percent from the line. Add a 75.0 TS% to just 1.6 turnovers and this is some of the cleanest ball he's played ever.
Apr 7 - 10:18 PM

Eric Bledsoe only missed once during Tuesday's 106-102 win over the Celtics, scoring 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting from the field and 1-of-1 from the stripe over 37 minutes.

Bledsoe added one 3-pointer, four assists, one rebound and three turnovers while he was out there, and he's simply been shooting the lights out over the past six, hitting 63.7% of his attempts on his way to averages of 24.2 points, 2.3 triples, 4.0 boards, 5.5 dimes, 1.8 steals and 2.7 turnovers per game. He's finally healthy and is heating up at the perfect time in fantasy hoops.
Apr 3 - 10:48 PM

Eric Bledsoe scorched the nets for 39 points in Friday's 124-122 overtime road win against the Lakers.

Bledsoe hit 15-of-24 from the field, including an impressive 7-of-12 from behind the 3-point line, just missing a career high in points by two. He dropped a career-high 41 points Feb. 1, 2017 as a member of the Suns against L.A.'s 'other' team. Bledsoe was on fire with 26 points coming after halftime. He'll look to carry over the momentum in Sunday's road game against the Nuggets.
Mar 31 - 2:15 AM

Eric Bledsoe went 9-of-11 from the field and 1-of-1 from the stripe on his way to 20 points in Thursday's 116-107 win over the Warriors.

Bledsoe added one 3-pointer, three rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and two turnovers through 31 minutes as a starter, and he helped Milwaukee go on a big run during the third that completely blew the game open. With the win, the Bucks earned a five-game advantage over the No. 9 seeded Pistons, and now sit just 0.5 games behind the Heat for the No. 7 spot out East.
Mar 30 - 1:31 AM

Eric Bledsoe went 9-of-15 from the field and 4-of-6 from the charity stripe on his way to 23 points in Sunday's 106-103 win over the Spurs.

Bledsoe also added one 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three turnovers in the 32 minutes he was out there, and he was a huge part of the win, getting easy shots at the rim and draining tightly contested jumpers. He was particularly impressive in the third, scoring 11 of his 23 points on 4-of-5 shooting (2-of-2 from the stripe) while operating with a 33.1 usage rate.
Mar 25 - 6:47 PM

Eric Bledsoe played just 20 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday with 13 points, four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one triple.

His fantasy owners probably had high expectations with Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) out, but foul trouble was the reason for his quiet night -- he had three fouls in his first three minutes. Luckily for the Bucks, they got a big lift from Shabazz Muhammad and Brandon Jennings off the bench. Look for Bledsoe to bounce back on Sunday vs. the Spurs.
Mar 24 - 12:46 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 19 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

Unlike Khris Middleton, Bledsoe doesn't get the crazy boost without Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle). Bledsoe only gets a 3.3 usage rate boost without Giannis, and his efficiency goes way down. That said, Bledsoe could put up some mega stat lines while Giannis is out.
Mar 21 - 11:44 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 20 points with two rebounds, eight assists, one block, four steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Magic on Wednesday.

That's better after a discouraging Friday and Monday with only 26 minutes per game in those two wins. Excluding injury-related games, that down set was the first time he didn't hit 30 minutes in consecutive games since Jan. 10. The Brandon Jennings signing likely won't affect Bledsoe as he continues to post early-round value.
Mar 14 - 9:38 PM

Eric Bledsoe posted seven points with eight assists, four steals and three rebounds across 28 minutes in Friday's 120-112 win against the Knicks.

Bledsoe wasn't a big part of the offense, as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton were accounting for 58 of the 79 points by the team's starting five. He didn't have a banner game, turning it over five times while going 0-of-2 from the free-throw stripe, too. He'll look to pick up the pace in Monday's road game against the Grizzlies.
Mar 9 - 10:59 PM

Eric Bledsoe posted a solid all-around line on Friday vs. the Pacers with 15 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks, two triples and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

That's his second game of the season with at least two steals, two blocks and two triples. Bledsoe is third in the NBA in steals per game and has been on fire from beyond the arc, hitting at least two triples in 11 straight games. His owners can also look forward to using him in the fantasy playoffs unlike last season when the Suns abruptly shut him down for tanking reasons -- That's not happening in Milwaukee with the Bucks fighting for playoff seeding. Expect early-round numbers the rest of the way.
Mar 2 - 10:41 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting Sunday, to go with nine rebounds, two 3-pointers, five assists, one steal and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Bledsoe was also a perfect 4-of-4 from the charity stripe, and he came through with some clutch shots down the stretch to push the game into overtime, but New Orleans was simply too good to overcome in OT. As for Bledsoe's left wrist, it was a complete non-issue through the entirety of Sunday's game, so he should be fine moving forward.
Feb 25 - 6:19 PM

Eric Bledsoe (left wrist) is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

Bledsoe was always expected to play, but now we have official confirmation. He'll be joined by the usual starting five featuring Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and John Henson. Feel free to get him active.
