After they dropped Game 2 in Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Bucks went to the Windy City and took down the Chicago Bulls in consecutive games to take a 3-1 series lead. The Bucks handled business in a major way in Chicago, grabbing two wins and trailing for only a total of one minute and 51 seconds in both games combined.

The Bucks graded out very well after Game 3, but let’s see how they did in Sunday’s Game 4.

Grading Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls Game 4: Second Unit

Second Unit: A

What can we say about Grayson Allen in Game 4 that we didn’t already say after Game 3? After two underwhelming performances in Games 1 and 2, almost nobody looks as locked in as Grayson Allen. Allen became the first Milwaukee Buck in franchise history to hit five 3-pointers in back to back games, he was 5-of-7 Friday night and 6-of-7 on Sunday (78.6 percent in the last two games!) Grayson Allen scored 27 points on 10-of-12 shooting and contributed three steals.

Pat Connaughton and Jevon Carter were the only two other bench players to see significant time and while neither of them were particularly impactful on the offensive end they both were very helpful on the defensive end and in the rebounding game. Pat Connaughton scored five points, one a very crafty drive to the basket while the Bulls were making a run, and grabbed six rebounds, snagging some away from Chicago’s big men and limiting extra possessions.

Jevon Carter only scored three points but also grabbed four rebounds, despite making just one shot and committing two turnovers, Carter still played good enough defense to finish the game +11.
