The Milwaukee Bucks endured the ever-turbulent Jordan Nwora experience in full throughout last night’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers

With Grayson Allen sidelined due to hip soreness and the Bucks missing a handful of other crucial pieces, Jordan Nwora earned the starting nod last night. The forward has typically been scorching hot or freezing cold during his playing time this season, and the Bucks needed him to play his best basketball if they were to stand a chance against the 76ers.

To his credit, Nwora started the game off well by getting a few shots to fall. He even led the team in scoring following the first quarter with a quick seven points. Although Nwora continued to play well, some of his biggest flaws were still sprinkled in throughout his performance. Once Nowra hit a shot, he started hunting for more shots, several of which were poor decisions. His lackluster play defensively was also on display, as there were several instances where he looked lost on the floor. That pretty much sums up the Jordan Nwora experience right there. He will do some things rather well, such as knock down several tough shots, but then he will equally make just as many, if not more, questionable decisions the next few trips up the floor.

Despite the roller coaster ride that Nwora took Bucks fans on during his 35 minutes, he finished with a respectable line of 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting, including 4-of-7 from three. He played better than Middleton, having given the Bucks a much-needed boost on the offensive end while their All-Star forward struggled. There were some great moments, but then there were several gloomy moments on display throughout Nwora’s time. Despite some frustrating moments, he provided the spark that the Bucks needed with so many injuries to typical rotational players.
