Jordan Nwora struggles to find his footing in Milwaukee Bucks’ Summer League loss

After stealing the show in the Bucks’ opener versus the Clippers, Jordan Nwora struggled to get into a rhythm in this follow-up.

He would finish as the team’s leading scorer with 22 points, but it took him 26 shots to reach that mark, certainly far from his best shooting afternoon. This was particularly evident with his outside shot, as the 22-year-old was just 1-for-11 from deep. Known as a prolific shooter, Nwora simply could not get anything to drop with consistency in this matchup. Yet, his confidence persisted, and he continued shooting the basketball to try and establish a groove.

In addition to his rough shooting afternoon, Nwora struggled to maintain the basketball as the forward finished with five turnovers. Not tallying a single assist, it was just a subpar afternoon for the soon-to-be sophomore. However, performances like these are bound to happen, and this lone game should not alter Nwora’s perception entirely. Still trying to find his footing in the league, him getting his feet wet in these Summer League games is precisely what he needs, especially after it was canceled during his rookie season due to the pandemic.

Many are sold that Nwora can potentially be a contributor for the Bucks at the NBA level, and while that might not be set in stone just yet, these games are a step in the right direction. Nwora will be looking to bounce back following his subpar shooting game against the Nets.
