Realize it's one game, but those are your main guys and they take the majority of shots as Smitch reiterated. Bargnani won't always put up 17 points on 17 shots, was shooting a good percentage on fewer shots until the Spurs Game. Too good a shooter to have that kind of game and that kind of shooting percentage for the season
He's not that good of a shooter, unless he's on. You take away the few games where he's fairly hot and his percentages are just abysmal.

The main issue is finding the proper role for this guy, not waiting for his ups and downs to somehow make everything work out.

Sam said the key thing - he hasn't improved his game in any offseason, and looks to improve his game during the season, which doesn't work. He didn't say it, but that approach also hurts the team terribly.
