This time against the Bulls he was efficient with his best shooting night of the season. Teague went 9 of 14 from the field and 3 of 5 from beyond the arc and he didn’t need free throws to pad his point total either.
His offense didn’t come at the expense of the team’s offense, either. Monta Ellis had to take a step back in this game as he only took scored one bucket while handing out 8 assists, but that’s not a problem when the team as a whole shoots 53.5% from the field and posts an 116.5 offensive rating. The ball was moving and just about everyone was making shots.
As long as Teague and Ellis can defer to each other when one of them has the hot hand and let the offense flow, some of the concerns about fit will fade.
It wasn’t just Teague that impressed on Saturday, either.
