Milwaukee Bucks Grades, Reactions From 115-100 Loss To Cleveland Cavaliers

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Greivis Vasquez, D

0 Points| 0-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

So much for all that Vasquez has arrived in the Bucks offense talk. Time to slow down. The Bucks need something more from Vasquez, but there he was Thursday night clanking long range jumpers en route to a goose egg offensively. He did incorporate teammates, as seen with his five assists, but the bench needs him to be a scorer as well as a facilitator.

John Henson, D

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

If I didn’t read the box score I wouldn’t have known Henson even played. That’s how invisible he was in his eleven minutes against Cleveland. Obviously, that’s not what the Bucks resigned him to do. As with seemingly everyone on the Buck’s roster, they need more consistency Henson.

Johnny O’Bryant, C+

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

Like Henson, I wouldn’t even have known JOB played if I didn’t look at the box score. Despite the quiet performance he was still able to collect a positive (+/-), with a +3.  He began his night by playing decent defense on Kevin Love, before losing track of him and allowing a big three pointer.

Jeryyd Bayless, B

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

He scored 75% of the Buck’s bench scoring. For the most part he took good shots, save for a fourth quarter pull-up down ten (which he missed). The Cavaliers took the rebound and ended up scoring three points on their next possession. If he hits it, the game is an eight point affair. Who knows what happens from there.

O.J. Mayo, B

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

Boy is it nice to have Mayo back. It will take him some time to re-acclimate himself within the Bucks offense, but the threat of the three pointer could hopefully open things up for teammates. He made good on one of his two three point attempts.

Next: Jason Kidd
