George  Hill

All Bucks fans got to see a glimpse of George Hill‘s 2019-20 season back during their run to the Eastern Conference Finals last season.

In his 52 appearances on the year, Hill averaged 9.6 points on .530/.480/.831 shooting splits, 3.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists over 21.2 minutes per game.

Hill’s ability to act as a spark plug on the offensive end and offer up the defensive steel needed at the point of attack has made him the Bucks’ prototypical Sixth Man.

And in particular, it’s been Hill’s sparkling shooting from 3-point range that has been a revelation, especially as he’s jumped from shooting 28 percent during the 2018-19 season to 20 percentage points higher this year. Along with that, Hill leads the league in that department by a solid margin.

Throughout his 12-year career, Hill has stood as a winning player and by maximizing his offensive output, Hill’s run during the 2019-20 campaign stands as one of his best over the course of his time in the NBA.
