It wasn’t the Bucks best week but they did have a couple of nice victories. Some players played well, but again, most guys seemed to underperform.

It looks like Michael Carter-Williams got some of his groove back in the last few games of the week. Now that Jerryd Bayless has an ankle injury Milwaukee really needs MCW to have a positive influence on games. Him and Tyler Ennis are the only two healthy point guards on the roster right now.

The Bucks really need Giannis Antetokounmpo to be more aggressive. He is taking fewer and fewer shots every week it seems. I think taking the training wheels off and freeing him up to take more shots is something Milwaukee needs to do if they want to be successful this season while also owning the future.

John Henson, Johnny O’Bryant, and O.J. Mayo both had some on and off games this week. Overall they are all doing a pretty good job filling the voids for this Bucks team that seems to always be in some state of flux with the injuries. Their contributions are going to be important as the season rolls along.

Hopefully the Bucks can win more games than they lose next week and get rocking.
