Reactions: The Bad

  • There’s this widespread panic every time the Bucks don’t attempt a whole bunch of three-pointers, but it’s completely unnecessary (we’ll break down why in an upcoming article). What is concerning is when Khris Middleton doesn’t attempt long balls. Middleton is averaging 47 percent from deep, so even on a night like this when he’s struggling overall, he needs to take more than a single three.
  • This is only a very minor grievance, but after recalling Damien Inglis from the D-League prior to a Canton Charge game last night, why not even give him some minutes in garbage time of a big Bucks win? He would have benefitted more from staying in Canton.
