Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Starters

Michael Carter-Williams

, A+

18 Points | 6-8 FG | 5-6 FT | 5 REB | 13 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK |

MCW is a microcosm of the team. Just when you’re ready to give up on him he reminds you why you believed in him in the first place. According to that formula the Bucks are poised to rattle off three straight wins and revive playoff hopes.


Khris Middleton

, C

14 Points| 6-18 FG | 2-7 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK |

His recent shooting issues aren’t associated with Jason Kidd. His recent shooting issues aren’t associated with Jason Kidd. His recent shooting issues aren’t associated with Jason Kidd. No matter how many times I say it I just can’t shake the fact that he’s shooting just 31.7 percent (20-63) since Kidd returned to the bench. It’s just silly to think there’s a correlation there…right?


Giannis Antetokounmpo

17 Points | 6-12 FG | 5-7 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK |

He saved his finest performance for the fourth quarter where he scored seven points while looking for his own shot. I love Giannis taking control of the game late. I love it even more when he delivers. He kept the Bucks afloat with a strong five point surge with around five minutes remaining.


Jabari Parker

, A-

16 Points | 8-12 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK |

He was electric with his cuts and dunks. He has a real gift for finding seams in opposing defenses and making them pay with easy dunks and layups. Unfortunately he was defensively responsible for two of the back-breaking three pointers that sealed the game for the Kings.


Greg Monroe

, A+

24 Points| 11-16 FG | 2-3 FT | 12 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK |

Moose looked frustrated at the end of the game and it’s easy to understand why. He’s virtually recording a double-double every night but the Bucks just keep losing. He was dominant on the low block and was particularly savage against Quincy Acy. All for naught.
