“At the end of the day it’s on me because I have the ball the whole game … and when I play a little passive, that’s when I get turnovers,” Bledsoe said. “When I’m aggressive and going to the rim, I find guys and I play without thinking a lot.”
At the end of the day against the Rockets, Bledsoe had a career-high 34 points to go with 8 boards, 4 dimes and 3 steals in a 15 point victory. 23 of Bledsoe’s 34 came in the first half against the team he seems to like playing against. This was Bledsoe’s 2nd 30 points game against the Rockets and 3rd of the season.
“We didn’t play any defense today at all,” Houston’s Trevor Ariza said. “We pretty much just let them do everything they wanted for three quarters and at the last minute we tried to step up.”
