07:21 AM ET 11.04 | Coaches and players often find themselves on opposite ends of this quandary: Do players play more when they play better, or do they play better when they play more? Milwaukee center Larry Sanders is solidly in the camp of the latter. Bucks coach Larry Drew? Leaning more toward the former right now. Sanders -- the 6-foot-11 defensive savant whose breakthrough 2012-13 season included strong support for the Defensive Player (seventh) and Most Improved (third) awards, as well as a four-year, $44 million extension over the summer -- is one frustrated shot-swatter and rebounder at the moment. ... "I feel like I'm capable of being in the game at the end and helping my team win, coming up with blocks and rebounds," Sanders told NBA.com before exiting the locker room swiftly. "I haven't been able to get my rhythm out there."

Sanders' minutes have dropped by 10 per game from last season. His points are nearly the same and blocks are still solid, but his rebounding numbers are less than half of last year's average. Hard to get boards in 10 minutes less per game. I'm surprised that Drew is still getting coaching jobs in the NBA.

Yeah, I figured something was peculiar when Zaza Pachulia was getting the crunch time minutes in the comeback win over Boston.
