The Milwaukee Bucks got back on track with a strong performance and a convincing win over the Orlando Magic in Game 2 of their first round series.
It certainly was reassuring to see something resembling the real Milwaukee Bucks again.
As the Bucks put together a commanding, bounceback effort to take Game 2 against the Orlando Magic and even their first round series up at 1-1, there were flashes of the outstanding two-way play that had made the Bucks so formidable throughout the current season.
That isn’t to say there still isn’t plenty of room for improvement, and areas in need of being tidied up, but Thursday’s win was certainly up there with one of the better performances the Bubble Bucks have given to date.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez led the way, as they have done as the Bucks’ two clear best players in the bubble so far, but strong bench outings from Kyle Korver, Donte DiVincenzo, and a starring turn from Pat Connaughton also proved to be crucial.
With that in mind, let’s zero in on the individual efforts and dish out grades for the Bucks’ Game 2 win against the Magic.
