The Milwaukee Bucks made it two wins from two as they impressed in their Saturday scrimmage against the Sacramento Kings.
After a very impressive opening win over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks returned to action having already set a relatively high standard for their play early on at Walt Disney World Resort.
By the time their game against the Sacramento Kings hit half time with the Bucks having scored a whopping 80 points, it seemed safe to say Milwaukee had leveled up once again.
The final score of 131-123 didn’t quite sum up the Bucks’ dominance in the game, as they were able to rest multiple key players for anywhere between the majority of to the entirety of the second half.
That’s not to suggest that Milwaukee played flawlessly by any means, with turnovers standing out as the most notable element of their game that will need to be tidied up before the playoffs get underway.
Aside from those 23 giveaways, though, head coach Mike Budenholzer will undoubtedly have been pleased with the outstanding three-point shooting (20-of-45, 44 percent), rebounding (54), and assist total (29) on display from his team as they took their latest step back toward competitive action.
With all of that in mind, let’s dig in and take a closer look at some of the key takeaways from Saturday’s Bucks win over the Kings.
