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

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Greivis Vasquez, F

1 Point| 0-10 FG | 1-1 FT | 2 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

Vasquez was brought in to be a hot hand off of the bench. He has been a hot mess instead. He continued to chuck three-pointers all night despite being horribly off, and only scored in this one due to J Kidd’s mercy–Vasquez made a technical free throw in the fourth quarter. General Greivis needs to get his act together, and quickly, or he’ll end up in the doghouse with Chris Copeland.

Jeryyd Bayless, A+

19 Points | 7-13 FG | 2-2 FT | 1 REB | 10 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK |

As unbelievable as it sounds, Jerryd Bayless was the ideal bench player in this game. He contributed all game, and were it not for Bayless drawing a foul and making both free throws at the end of the first quarter the Bucks’ bench unit wouldn’t have scored at all. Bayless has been the bench spark the Bucks hoped Vasquez would be this season–maybe it’s a good thing Adam and I don’t get to make trades.

John Henson, C+

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

Henson only saw nine minutes against Brooklyn. If I had to, I’d guess this is to help him come back from his injury and not push things early. Henson was pretty productive given his very limited minutes, but not outstanding in them–besides his one block, which was a leaping, out-of-bounds effort which he then rebounded and threw to a fellow Buck, all while he was in mid-air. That was pretty outstanding.

Johnny O’Bryant, B

6 Points | 3-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK |

O’Bryant had an awful first half when paired with Miles Plumlee. He got out-rebounded easily and took too many contested shots. He then came out into the second half with new-found energy, only taking open jumpers and rebounding tenaciously. The JOB revival is real.

Miles Plumlee, F

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

Miles looked like he had too many miles on him Saturday night. His shot selection was good, as he didn’t take any, but his rebounding was atrocious on both the offensive and defensive glass. The Plumdog isn’t going to be seeing any minutes once Henson is back to 100 percent, which is hopefully very soon if Plumlee keeps up this kind of play.

Next: Jason Kidd
