The Milwaukee Bucks are looking better on both ends of the court, thanks to the combined efforts of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard. These two players are building chemistry, and the Bucks have switched back to their drop defense, which is making a big difference in their performance.
In their last game against the Wizards on Monday night, Giannis Antetokounmpo went off for 42 points on 20-of-23 shooting, 13 rebounds, and eight assists. This impressive performance helped the Bucks win their fifth straight game.
It’s easy to forget that it’s still early in the season when we look at the first handful of games and draw sweeping conclusions. Teams thrown together over the summer usually need time to gel, but the Bucks are using this soft part of their schedule to find their footing. They look like a threat again.
There are still many questions that need to be answered, such as Khris Middleton’s health and role. However, there is a season to answer them, and right now, things are looking up for the Milwaukee Bucks.
