In full progress, Miles Bridges is not satisfied | NBA

If his figures for the year are nothing extraordinary compared to last year (12.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists) Miles Bridges has really taken a step forward in this campaign. In Gordon Hayward’s absence, the third year won in the Hornets’ major five in order to carry his franchise despite numerous injuries.

On the 16 games played as a starter, he compiled some very interesting statistics: 19.7 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists averaging 52% shooting, 45% from distance and 84% from the throwing line in 36 minutes.

Leader of the Hornets

A good progression that the player wants to resume this summer. « I have the impression that I can improve myself in all areas », he announces. “I have played in several positions and filled different roles. I want to be better in everything but especially in the intelligence of the game. Learn to better finish matches, to create shots for myself and for others. I can always be better in defense so it’s really a set. « 

If he does not seem satisfied, his coach can only be satisfied with the stature taken by his player. “Miles was exceptional. His vocal leadership really impressed me. He has been one of our best players this season. «  So much so that, without him, the Hornets saw the difference at the end of the regular season. “Of the six games he missed (2 wins for 4 losses), we really felt his absence, more than we could imagine ”.

The playoffs or nothing

At 22, Miles Bridges wants only one thing: to return to the arena.

“It has been a trying season in which I learned a lot about myself and how much I can influence this team. She was beneficial despite all the injuries. We had fun. I love our group. I absolutely do not want to be transferred and I want to come back with this team next year. We will have a better chance of making the playoffs if everyone is in good health. « 

“I feel like the whole team has the right work ethic and we’re all going to be working this summer. The coach has a good program. I spent a lot of time with him last summer. I think if everyone works like me last summer they can improve. I plan to work with a few players ” he continues.

Defeated by the Pacers during a « play-in » where he was one of the few at the Hornets side with 23 points (10/16) 8 rebounds and 4 assists, the winger is aiming for nothing other than the playoffs. “For me, our level of play was not surprising at the start of the year. I have seen everyone in the hall working and I know what kind of players we have. We have to make the playoffs. If we don’t do them, it’s a wasted year. «
