He's hitting .278 for the season. He's had two notably good games shooting long distance, in back to back games in January where he hit 7 of 14. Outside of those 2 games he's hitting 23 percent of his threes.

I would really like to see this guy play inside the arc a lot more. He mixes it up really well in the first quarter (that is also when he makes a lot of threes, likely because he's not just settling), and then settles for way too many bad shots the rest of the way. As much as he has seemed to have improved his mindset this season, his old patterns still take hold, and shooting a ton of blanks from outside would be a sure sign of that for me.
Since coming back he's playing like the same old Bargs, even his defense isn't as good as it was in january. Now obviously he was coming back from injury but it's been two weeks now and he needs to finish the season the way he started it.
