The Milwaukee Bucks ended their Summer League like they started it: with an ugly loss, this one coming at the hands of the Utah Jazz.

The Milwaukee Bucks did not end their stay in Las Vegas with a bang, as the Bucks lost their ultimate Summer League game to the Utah Jazz 97-76. Milwaukee lost each quarter, and never really made this compelling basketball.

After that one nice win over the Brooklyn Nets, which shall forever be known as the Rashad Vaughn game, the Bucks failed to win again. Losing Thon Maker, who picked working out with Giannis Antetokounmpo over Summer League, didn’t help matters much.

Hopefully what happens in Vegas really does stay in Vegas, because this was ugly. No Bucks managed to score more than 12 points, and the team put up 12 assists compared to 11 turnovers while shooting 40 percent from the field.

Every Milwaukee player had a negative plus-minus, meaning no matter who was on the floor for the Bucks they were getting outscored. Only Rodney Purvis on the Jazz had a negative plus-minus and I’m not entirely sure he’s not a created player on NBA 2K who happened to come to life for this game.

Regardless of how real Rodney Purvis is (or isn’t), the Bucks played something resembling a basketball game, and some guys who will matter next year in Milwaukee were involved. Thus, it’s time to break down what went down between the Bucks and the Jazz on Friday.
