Reactions: The Bad

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo has been the man who has allowed the Bucks to get back on track over the last week or so thanks to some spectacular play, yet on this occasion, he fell back into old habits. His performances are defined by his level of control, and when he’s picking up unnecessary fouls, it’s clear he’s not in total command.
  • Khris Middleton‘s shot still isn’t where Milwaukee needs it to be. For the man who was the picture of efficiency last season, Middleton has been far from economical with his usage of the ball in the first eight games of this campaign. The Bucks will hope that changes.
  • This team needs to get healthy as soon as they can. Michael Carter-Williams return will be a big positive when it comes to pass, but even more so, O.J. Mayo will be welcomed back with open arms in the hope of bolstering a creaking bench unit.
