Milwaukee Bucks: Grades and Reaction to 94-86 Win Over Nets

4 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Starters

Tyler Ennis, B+

9 Points | 4-9 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

In his second consecutive start, Tyler Ennis looked a lot more comfortable out there leading the offense. Ennis seems more confidant on the floor than he did in his rookie season, and although he only ended up with one assist he looked good out there passing the ball. Ennis was written off by many during the offseason, but so far he’s shown that he’s gotten better than last year.

Khris Middleton, A

14 Points| 4-6 FG | 3-5 FT | 9 REB | 7 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

Middleton hadn’t been great thus far this season, but he really turned things around against the Nets. He only needed six shots to score 14 points, and he came pretty close to getting himself a triple-double. Middleton getting that many points on just six shots is important–with Giannis scoring more and Parker and Monroe around, Khris may end up taking less than ten shots fairly often this season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, B

11 Points | 4-8 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

First option Giannis took a break in this game, which is a little sad because watching Giannis drop 20 is one of the most fun things out there. But even though he stepped back a little bit this game, Antetokounmpo was still good against the Nets in his more limited role.

Jabari Parker, B

8 Points | 4-7 FG | 0-1 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

Jabari is still getting his feet back under him, and although his scoring touch is still nice it’s evident by his rebounding that he doesn’t have his legs 100 percent back under him yet. Parker was never a great rebounder last season, but he’ll be pulling down more than two a game once he’s acclimated to NBA basketball again.

Greg Monroe, A

20 Points| 8-16 FG | 4-5 FT | 8 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK |

Monroe’s great scoring and rebounding don’t really even need commentary at this point, so I’ll touch on some other fun Moose stuff instead. He’s shooting nearly 82 percent from the free throw line this season. He’s currently averaging 3.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. Moose is second on the team in points, steals and blocks per game, first in rebounds per game and fourth in assists per game. I’d say he’s been worth the money.
