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 a single point per game after playing in five!. 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 five games with the Wizards, Kwame had 21 after five including a 10 point performance in his second career game.

Bennett finished the night with three points on 1 for 5 shooting, including 1 for 3 from downtown. After five 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 three of those five games.

After a series of depressed sounding tweets, Anthony stopped posting on Twitter four 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.
