Milwaukee Bucks Grades, Reaction To 113-95 Loss To Los Angeles Lakers

5 of 7

Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Michael Carter-Williams, D+

19 Points | 9-18 FG | 1-2 FT | 5 REB | 5 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK |

Don’t be fooled by his good scoring numbers–most of those points came in the fourth quarter when he was the only one still trying. Credit him for that. He was 2-9 shooting in the first half. But he kept the turnovers to a minimum (just one), and played within himself for most of the night. Another bad performance from Mayo could bring MCW back into the starting lineup.

Johnny O’Bryant, D

6 Points | 3-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK |

His night is summed up by a first half play where he put an outlet pass right into D’Angelo Russell‘s arms. It was shake your head bad. The sort that makes you wonder, once again, why JOB continues to get minutes while Inglis languishes on the bench.

Rashad Vaughn, C-

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

It’s difficult to remember Vaughn doing anything of consequence Tuesday night. Oh yeah! He missed a three pointer with the shot clock expiring.  Other than that it was another nondescript performance from the Buck’s rookie.

Miles Plumlee, C

10 Points | 5-7 FG | 0-2 FT | 8 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK |

If only he had the athleticism of John Henson then he would be the Bucks clear cut #2 center thanks to his rebounding ability. Offensively he capitalized on easy opportunities set up for him by teammates. He did, however, whiff on a first half transition pass where he turned his back to MCW and watched as the ball sailed over his right shoulder. Oops.

Chris Copeland, D

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

Like Vaughn, Copeland did little other than hoist up a three pointer and miss it. Unlike Vaughn, Copeland didn’t have to shoot it and given the way his shot missed so terribly, probably shouldn’t have even thought about taking it. But that’s Cope for you, guys. Bombs away.

Next: Jason Kidd
