Pat Connaughton/Blake Wesley NBA Tracker: March 20-26

Pat Connaughton must be ready for the playoffs because he had an amazing game over the past week. During the Milwaukee Bucks’ March 24 win over the Utah Jazz, he scored a season-high 22 points, most of which came on six 3-pointers, also a season high. Two days earlier against the San Antonio Spurs, he grabbed 10 rebounds. Those particular contests added up to a week in which he averaged 10.7 points and 6.3 rebounds a game while shooting an even 50.0% from the field.

Meanwhile, it appears Blake Wesley has hit the rookie wall, and it surely came for him later than usual since he was injured for nearly two months. He did turn in a decent performance in the Spurs’ game against the Bucks with six points and six assists. He also had a career-high nine assists March 24 against the Washington Wizards. But a 2.8 scoring average suggests he’s ready for the offseason to begin soon, even though he did have 4.5 assists a game.
