Hawks' Bazemore primed to step up if Carroll can't go for Game 2
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) With Hawks small forward DeMarre Carroll ruled a game-time decision for Game 2 against the Cavaliers, Kent Bazemore is preparing to fill in that defensive-oriented role, according to AJC.com.
If Carroll does not play, Bazemore will undoubtedly have the task of defending Cavs forward LeBron James. Bazemore, though, is not shying away from that challenge.
“It’s great,” Bazemore said. “It’s a great platform to show what you can do. They brought me here as a defender and that’s my job. What a great measuring stick to go up against one of the best. … It’s tough but it’s what you sign up for. It’s a challenge I love. I love guarding the best players. I’ve been doing it all my life. This is no different. The tools I have and the preparation up to this point, I think I’ve prepared myself to do a good job.”
Bazemore is averaging 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds per game during the playoffs.
G Kent Bazemore puts up 20 points in Hawks' loss
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(3/28/15) Hawks' guard Kent Bazemore got a rare start on Saturday and tallied a team-high 20 points in a 115-110 loss to the Hornets.|
Bazeman shot 7 for 14 from the floor and grabbed five rebounds in the defeat.
''I did get some pull-up jumpers to go down and shot some 3s,'' said Bazemore, who was 3 of 7 on 3-pointers. ''For me, coming off the injuries and the long year I've had, it's pretty encouraging.''
Hawks' DeMarre Carroll questionable, Shelvin Mack out
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/2/15) Hawks SG DeMarre Carroll is listed as questionable for Monday's game at the Pelicans. Carroll has missed the last two games after straining his left Achilles.
If Carroll can't play, Kent Bazemore will likely get the start at SG.
PG Shelvin Mack was also listed on the Hawks injury report. He has missed the last six games with a left calf strain, and will not play in Monday's game either.
The Hawks are riding a 19-game winning streak and are 3.5 point favorites on the road for Monday's game.
Hawks' Kent Bazemore won't slow down as a starter
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/2/15) Hawks SG Kent Bazemore is getting increased minutes, but he doesn't plan to pace himself. That's not how he made it to where he is now.
Bazemore went from unrecruited high school player to practice player at Old Dominion. "I didn’t score in practice until like February," he told Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Undrafted and toiling in the D-League, he earned the attention of Hawks assistant GM Wes Wilcox through his work ethic and his "desperation to be great".
The Hawks signed Bazemore during the offseason, after he spent parts of the previous two years with the Warriors and Lakers.
Recovering from offseason foot surgery, Bazemore played limited minutes early on and found himself buried in the Hawks' rotation. A left Achilles strain to starting SG DeMarre Carroll, followed by right calf strain to backup Thabo Sefolosha gave Bazemore an opportunity, and he hit it at full speed.
Bazemore scored 12 points in 40 minutes off the bench against the trailblazers, earning his first Hawks start on Saturday. He shot 1-for-6, scoring 3 points in the game. Bazemore said starting was an adjustment, but not one that will slow him down.
"It’s different physically,” he told Winkeljohn. “You have to find ways when you’re fatigued and your shot is not falling to help. … I only have one gear, I think, and if I’m out there trying to pace, I’m not going to be as aggressive as I can be."
Hawks SG Kent Bazemore scores season-high 17 vs. 76ers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/13/15) Hawks shooting guard Kent Bazemore scored a season-high 17 points on 7 of 14 shooting, including 3 of 6 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 105-87 win over the 76ers Tuesday.
Bazemore played 27 minutes off the bench on a night where the team chose to rest three regular starters for the entirety of the game. He also chipped in five rebounds and one assist in the blowout win. The Hawks will square off with the Celtics Wednesday.
|After receiving little to no playing time with Golden State, Kent Bazemore found immediate Fantasy relevance when he was traded to the Lakers. He thrived with the Lakers' high octane offense, and his new team the Hawks plays a similar brand. Still, it's hard to see how Bazemore fits into Atlanta's swingman rotation. It's safe to ignore Bazemore on Draft Day.
