Grading Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls Game 5: Second Unit

Second Unit: A

Grayson Allen rose like a phoenix from the ashes in Game 3 after being very quiet in Games 1 and 2, his outbursts of 22 and 27 points in Games 3 and 4 were a welcomed sight in the absence of Khris Middleton and Grayson Allen’s willingness to accept the villain role in Chicago and turn it into fuel for the crazy hot burning fire that Allen has been shooting from the three point line has captured the attention of NBA fans everywhere. In Game 3 Allen was 5-of-7 on threes, Game 4 he was 6-of-7 on threes and in Wednesday’s Game 5 he was 3-of-6. Games 3-5 Grayson Allen shot 14-for-20 on 3-point shots! 70 percent! Grayson Allen actually outscored Demar DeRozan in Games 3, 4, and 5.

Grayson Allen wasn’t the best 3-point shooter coming off the bench for the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5, that title belongs to Pat Connaughton, who had easily his best game of this series, scoring 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting and an impressive 6-of-9 behind the 3-point line.

Jevon Carter was the other main bench contributor, he continues to give Mike Budenholzer good minutes at the backup point guard position with George Hill out. Budenholzer even played Jevon Carter and Jrue Holiday on the floor together at times during the series and it resulted in tough defense and good ball movement on the offense. Carter scored six points, grabbed three rebounds, dished four assists with no turnovers, and had a team-high five steals.
