It's mind boggling why Casey played him in the 4th quarter, when the guy was basically afraid of getting the ball, he couldn't get rid of it soon enough. The one time he made a move, he was basically forced to do it on the ISo against west, and he rushed that possession. Something is very strange with Bargnani right now.
Sometimes when a players struggling mentally, the best thing is to throw him back out there. Especially in a tight situation..

And the fact that he did his job and we won a nail bitter should help his confidence.

I'm not to worried, he has been terrible on back2backs in his career, and this one coming off a tripleOT loss, I think we all expected him to struggle. Casey only utilized him for 28 minutes.

The next 3-4 days of rest will def help.

I expect him to put up his 20sh points and 6-7 boards on Saturday.
