May be a little simplistic but maybe he just needed the coach to tell him face to face and in no uncertain terms "be aggressive and look to score; you are one of our best players". Five things that stand out in that box score. He led the team in: Minutes (he needs about 25 minutes a game to be effective) Shots (when is the last time he took that many shots in a game?) Offensive Rebounds (which means he wasn't spotting up for the 3) Total Rebounds (bet he led a lot of fast breaks off the defensive end) and Points. I would be curious to know who he was guarding on defense? The more consistent minutes he plays the more consistent he will become.
