Milwaukee Bucks Grades, Reactions From 95-70 Loss To San Antonio Spurs

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

John Henson, B-

6 Points | 2-2 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK |

Henson needs more minutes. That’s a refrain that has become almost an annual tradition for Bucks fans, but right now it certainly seems true. Did his best to make an impact in limited time on the floor, making a couple of nice blocks in the process too.

Jabari Parker, C

7 Points | 1-7 FG | 5-6 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

His only field goal was a powerful dunk with a clear path to the rim off of an inbounds pass. Parker didn’t look quite as good as he has in recent games, missing a number of simple shots inside. He did bring the effort though, and his seven rebounds deserve some recognition.

Michael Carter-Williams, C

4 Points | 2-10 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK |

Came in and made himself busy again, even if he was really forcing it with his shots. Not sure there are many guys trying harder than Carter-Williams right now, but with the pressure he’s already under there’s no guarantee that that will help his game. Needs some reassurance to help him rein his play back in just a little.

Rashad Vaughn, C+

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

Had a couple of really nice plays dubiously disallowed by the officials, but continues to show flashes of a diverse and nicely rounded offensive game. Injuries and DNPs are helping to get him on the floor early, but he’s certainly making a nice case for it to become a more consistent sight.

Miles Plumlee, D

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

Had almost zero impact considering his seven minutes on the floor. As others at the back of the bench at least came out in the hope of making something happen with the game out of reach, Plumlee reverted to more of a holding pattern. Really needs to show more going forward.

Chris Copeland, D

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

One thing we didn’t know about Copeland prior to his signing is that he’s a capable passer, willing to get others involved. The only problem is that he was brought in to fill a three-and-D role yet doesn’t shoot and can’t defend. Really, he might be the worst defender in the entire NBA.

Johnny O’Bryant, B-

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

The mystery as to way Johnny O’Bryant’s minutes were suddenly cut ranks up there with so many of the current Bucks talking points. In his own cameo appearance, he looked assured, hard-working and actually made an impact. How about more JOB, please?
