Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Michael Carter-Williams, A-

20 Points | 9-16 FG | 2-3 FT | 1 REB | 11 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

It feels a little weird to say, but MCW was far and away the Bucks best player Wednesday night. He led the team in assists with eleven, took mostly quality shots, and kept the turnovers to a minimum with just two. Could THIS be the time where IT finally clicks for the young PG?

John Henson, B+

8 Points | 4-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

He saw just twelve minutes of action because of his inability to make a difference on the boards. Rebounding was never really his forte, but the Clippers made him look weak. Offensively he was up to his usual crafty voodoo, using the “unguardable” lefty hook against a bewildered Blake Griffin.

Johnny O’Bryant, B+

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

Christmas came early for the Bucks sharpshooting forward when he was left alone in the corner with the shot clock expiring and the ball in his hand. Mustering all his savvy, JOB hoisted the shot into the sky and when it fell through the basket there was MUCH merriment. (Especially on Twitter.)

Rashad Vaughn, B-

0 Points | 0-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK |

He’s showing a desire to be on the court. You can see that clearly as he hustles after every loose ball and never steps outside himself. For instance, on a 2 on 1 fast break with him and Jabari he waited for the defender to commit to the ball before passing to Parker for the easy two.

Next: Jason Kidd
