Reactions: The Good

  • The Bucks have shown an ability to start fast on multiple occasions, dating back to the season opener, and they were fast out of the blocks again in this one. Now it just becomes a matter of figuring out how to maintain that level.
  • Greg Monroe was spectacular again, orchestrating all that was good about Milwaukee’s performance from the middle. He’s a force on the class, adept at stealing the basketball and unselfish enough to help his teammates find easy buckets. He’ll score however the opportunity presents itself. Dare I say it, he’s a go-to option.
  • Tyler Ennis may not be the flashiest or most assertive of point guards, but his calm and steady demeanor allows those around him to get to work. The Bucks need a point guard who gets out of the way at times, and Ennis has proven that he’s humble and smart enough to do that anyway.
  • Jabari Parker is still not pushing himself to the heart of the action just yet, but he’s getting sharper and starting to look more comfortable. Something which can’t be said of Kelly Olynyk‘s ankles…
