Going strictly by the numbers, there is little doubt Terrence Ross should be looking for a seat on the bench when Game 4 starts tonight.

But even in the NBA playoffs, things are rarely so cut and dried.

Ross has opened the door to the discussion and may yet suffer the consequences for an anemic offensive output through three games in the series. He’s gone from cold to bordering on frozen shooting just 3-for-16 for the series for a tough-to-carry 18.75 shooting percentage.

Since the departure of Rudy Gay in the seven-player deal with Sacramento, Ross has been an evolving player. Some nights, he has been in lockdown mode on his defensive assignment, as when he took on Paul George with great success earlier this season. Other nights, he has been a scoring machine, like the night he dropped 51 on the Los Angeles Clippers.
