Game 2: Milwaukee Bucks 113 Washington Wizards 118 Grades & Reactions

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Greivis Vasquez, D+

0 Points| 0-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 5 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

Vasquez failed to deliver the spark that he provided in the season opener. In fact, he failed to deliver much of anything. For as much as he seemed to have a grasp on the system on Wednesday night, he had an equal amount of confusion when faced against the Wizards. The deer in the headlights look doesn’t suit him mind you. Expect a much better performance against his former team Sunday afternoon.

Chris Copeland, B

6 Points | 2-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

He did what he was brought in to do–make three pointers and play within the offense. That was exactly what he did against the Wizards. All four of his shots were from behind the arc. Perhaps Copeland is primed to rediscover his shooting stroke from deep? We can only hope. The Bucks desperately need him to be solid from deep. I’ll take 2-4 in just nine minutes.

Damien Inglis, C

0 Points | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

He played just three short minutes and didn’t do a whole lot with the minutes. During those minutes his +/- was a lackluster -7. Plus/minus is often a misleading stat, but Jason Kidd likely saw something particular with his performance that encouraged him to bench Inglis the rest of the game.

Jeryyd Bayless, B-

14 Points | 5-11 FG | 2-3 FT | 0 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

Whenever you can get two threes from Bayless you take it. The problem is that seven of Bayless’ 11 shots were from three-point territory. Bayless is a more effective player from mid-range, or while in attack mode. He has nice touch on his floater and can make the smart pass from the block. He is not, however, a hyper productive three-point shooter. He needs to play more to his own strengths.

Miles Plumlee, C

4 Points| 2-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

He was mostly invisible in 13 minutes of action. That’s a good thing. The Bucks are starved for big-man depth whenever Henson misses time. If Plumlee can continue to provide solid minutes in his stead, we will happily take it.

Next: Jason Kidd
