The bulldog who eats rocks, Jevon Carter, started the season as the Phoenix Suns backup point guard with rave reviews.
Through the first four games, he was averaging double digits in scoring, and shooting 50% from behind the arc. On top of that, he was a defensive disrupter, logging five steals in those those first few games.
Then, well, his production sort of fell off a cliff.
He shot a mere 1 of 9 from the field including 0 of 6 from deep in his next four games as the backup point guard. It forced Monty to cut him out of the rotation, and relegated him to a bench hype man (something at which he is probably the best on the team).
Situationally, Carter has found his way back onto the court at times, and just like the first eight games of the year, he has played a bit streaky.
His overall numbers on the year:
3.9 points per game
1.8 assists per game
1.7 rebounds per game
It is reasonable to think Carter is what he is at this point: a guy with a low ceiling, average-height floor, and a killer instinct.
