#1 Pick Anthony Bennett Finally Makes a Field Goal in his 5th Game | Finishes game with 3 points.
After making a three pointer in the second quarter of the Cavs loss to the Bucks last night, the #1 pick, Anthony Bennett, can now say that he has made a bucket in the NBA and is averaging 1 point per game after playing in 5. That might be the worst start of all-time for a #1 pick and before you google Kwame Brown to see what he did in his first 5 games with the Wizards, Kwame had 21 after 5 including a 10 point performance in his 2nd career game.
Bennett finished the night with 3 points on 1 for 5 shooting including 1 for 3 from downtown. After 5 games he now has 5 points, 16 rebounds, 1 assist, 6 steals, 2 blocks and is 1 for 20 from the field and 1 for 11 from 3 point land. The Cavs have also lost 3 of those 5 games.
After a series of depressed sounding tweets, Anthony stopped posting on Twitter 4 days ago. The last thing he posted was a RT that said “without resistance there is no real growth. #FighterMentality.” Let’s hope last night’s bucket gets Bennett in a better frame of mind and we start to see the fighter the Cavs drafted and defended on draft night.
Anthony Bennett’s two points is the fewest points scored through four games by any No. 1 pick since the 1966 draft.
