Darius Bayley played just 17 minutes off the bench on Tuesday and had nine points, nine rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in a Game 1 loss to the Rockets.
Bazley came in hot and was a DFS darling in the later bubble seeding games but now that the games matter, his minutes may not be there. He went on a three-game run with 21, 22 and 23 points and played at least 23 minutes in all eight seeding games, but with Danilo Gallinari and most of his teammates healthy, the minutes fell off tonight. Maybe he'll bounce back in Game 2, but he may struggle to see 25 minutes in any of the Thunder's playoff games. Aug 18 9:35 pm (EST)
