Game 4: Milwaukee Bucks 103 Brooklyn Nets 96 Grades & Reactions

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Greivis Vasquez, C+

0 Points| 0-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 8 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

This is a tough performance to grade. On the one hand, 0-8 shooting is an abysmal showing and a real concern seen as Vasquez has yet to show any real sign of his shooting touch. On the other though, the Venezuelan picked up eight assists, with only one turnover to counteract them. A couple of those passes came for big Bayless three-pointers, and on this occasion I’d argue that Vasquez’s passing helped the Bucks more than his shooting hurt them.

Johnny O’Bryant, B-

8 Points | 3-4 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK |

Alongside Giannis, JOB has to be the story for Bucks fans right now. His leap to become a serviceable bench player, is equally significant to Giannis’ jump to superstardom, relative to where they both started off from. Unselfish is the word that best describes O’Bryant at the moment. The other night it was his passing that caught the eye, well, tonight it was his ability to draw charges. JOB plays to win, and perhaps that’s why he’s clearly so popular with Coach Kidd.

Miles Plumlee, D

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

Limited minutes for Plumlee didn’t mean a limited impact. Plumlee is very trigger-happy when it comes to fouling, and the regularity in which he was sending the Nets to the free-throw line could have come back to haunt the Bucks. Four personal fouls in just six minutes of play is no mean feat.

Next: Jason Kidd
