Game 5: Milwaukee Bucks 91 Philadelphia 76ers 87 Grades & Reactions

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Greivis Vasquez, B+

11 Points| 4-12 FG | 2-3 FT | 1 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

Far and away his best showing in a Bucks’ uniform. His field goal percentage was a little low–he took a handful of poor shots–eventually getting yanked for a bad three point attempt. His +20 (+/-) easily led the Bucks. He’s becoming more comfortable within the Buck’s offense and once his jumper starts to fall more consistently he will be a deadly threat off the bench.

Chris Copeland, C+

8 Points | 3-9 FG | 1-1 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

He provided a spark off the bench at a time when the Bucks needed a lift from anyone. Down six with the game threatening to get out of hand he entered the game and initiated a 7-0 run. He took too many threes (1-7), but his energy proved invaluable in the Bucks win.

Johnny O’Bryant, B

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

He keeps doing the little things. He raked in three offensive rebounds in short order early in the game, using his bulky body to out-will opponents underneath the basket. He’s a tough customer and a reliable commodity off the bench.

Miles Plumlee, B+

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

Just a monstrous block on Nik Stauskas. That took guts. Like O’Bryant, he’s been all energy and effort off the bench. His role should decrease when Henson returns, but not for lack of effort. He’s bringing it every night.

Rashad Vaughn, B-

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

Aside from his three point shooting ability is a talent that goes without much praise–scrappiness. He’s the sort of player that regardless of his size has no problem challenging taller, larger opponents. That’s certainly the sort of effort that will endear him to Jason Kidd.

Tyler Ennis, B

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

He looked good in his first action since off-season shoulder surgery. Though not known for his offensive ability he had the guts to take a big time pull-up jumper in the second quarter. That shot stopped a 76ers run and helped guide the Bucks offensive back into their comfort zone.

Next: Jason Kidd
