Milwaukee Bucks Grades: Bench

Katy Perry might’ve written Hot N Cold with MCW in mind. He was cold, no, out, and down in the first half of this game. But when things mattered most, especially in the second overtime, Carter-Williams was hot, yes, in, and up. At least he has good timing on these things.

Greg Monroe

24 Points | 10-20 FG | 4-4 FT | 12 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK

The Moose had to redeem his weak effort from the Bucks last game against Charlotte, and he certainly did that. Monroe is showing that he can thrive in that weird bench role Jason Kidd has him in currently. And although I initially hated this move, it is nice to have that sure scoring punch waiting in the wings.

Rashad Vaughn, C

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

Vaughn missed his two three-point attempts on the night, but him showing he can do other things at the NBA level besides shooting threes is pretty dope, so it’s okay. Vaughn made a nice lay-up, and then drove in for another one before ultimately dishing it out in a beautiful mid-air pass that led to one of his two assists. Plus he had a block! Vaughn is adding to his NBA tool belt, and that’s never a bad thing.

Next: Jason Kidd
