Those wanting Barnes to shoot more might not like the results. Our offense doesn't

creates looks for a 4th option. When he touches it he's usually at the three point line with a man on him. And usually Lee or Landry is posting up expecting the ball.

The Bulls have everyone moving, curling, slashing, and everyone is passing to whomever is open.

Our offense revolves around Curry, Klay, and Lee.

Barnes is positioned at three point line on the other side of the half court.

I hope he drives as much as the rest of you, but again it's all him creating shots for himself and that's not his strength right now. So he rarely does it.

Fact is, he got taken out so early in this game after getting 3 boards and 2 assists and then sat a long time. This was when Steph, Lee, and Klay were not defending, turning the ball over, and missing shots.
His 3 first half shots were forced jumpers at the end of shot clocks when he just had to heave it.

Not a recipe for success.

What he is doing is competing defensively. The offense needs to be generated by our scheme and it never generates him open looks. Or rarely I should say.
