When the season began, the Los Angeles Clippers had Randy Foye, Chauncey Billups and Mo Williams as possible options behind Chris Paul. Given that, how could anyone have predicted that Eric Bledsoe would be in this position? Not only is he playing regularly, but he’s providing the Clippers with a huge spark off the bench, especially defensively and pushing the ball.
Bledsoe isn’t much of a finisher in traffic, nor is he a great shooter, but things just tend to happen when he’s on the court. I know, I know, that’s a cliche, but how else do you explain him being a +20 in the last three-plus games?
