On offense, can best be described as “lightning in a bottle.” He’s nearly impossible to catch, moving at full speed, all the time. He’s also entirely unpredictable, constantly darting around the court, probing the defense and creating chaos. The vast majority of the time, the chaos he creates benefits the Clippers, resulting in open jump-shots, lobs for his big men, or scoring opportunities for Bledsoe. Occasionally, though, Bledsoe’s chaos results in a turnover. His assist-turnover ratio last year of 1.4, among guards who played more than 200 minutes, was the 118th in the league. That’s not very good (Chris Paul, for reference, was 2nd in the league with an A/T ratio of 4.4). What is good is how he offsets this with his defensive contributions, which will be discussed later. Bledsoe is also an elite rebounder for a guard too, especially among point guards, and especially on the offensive glass. Per 36 minutes, he’s ranked 8th among qualified guards (and 1st among qualified point guards) in this category.
