Jason Kidd, B

  • His lineups are once again a primary source of scrutiny. He started the second quarter with the All-Star lineup of: Ennis, Mayo, Copeland, JOB, and Henson. To the amazement of me (and everyone else in the Buck’s community) that specific lineup held their own–getting outscored 7-5 in just over three minutes before Jabari Parker entered the game for Copeland. The scrutiny comes from his refusal to play Inglis over a completely ineffective Copeland.
  • He played his fourth quarter cards masterfully–keeping Monroe on the bench until the 4:20 mark and Michael Carter-Williams with 1:49 on the clock. Those two players made all the big plays for the Bucks down the stretch. Props to Kidd for giving them the ample rest they needed to be refreshed with the game on the line.
