Bucks Roundup: Week of 11/6-11/12


Tuesday, November 7th: Cavaliers 124, Bucks 119

In a game where the Bucks offense was clicking, it was a lack of defense that ultimately led to this loss against the Cavs.  Giannis had another excellent showing with 40 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and four blocks.  Brogdon had solid game with 22 points, six assists, and five rebounds. Middleton made 8 of 17 shots for a total of 20 points, while Teletovic knocked down 16 points.  Kevin Love led all Cavaliers with 32 points, while dominating the paint with 16 rebounds.  LeBron James always gets his, too, scoring 30 points and picking up nine assists. JR Smith added 20 points in this gut-wrenching Bucks loss.


Friday, November 10th: Bucks 94, Spurs 87

The arrival of Eric Bledsoe to the Bucks’ roster brought much needed excitement to a Bucks squad that needed a spark.

Bledsoe had a solid performance with 13 points, seven assists, four rebounds, and one steal. Giannis led all Bucks with 28 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, four blocked shots, and one steal.  John Henson continued to contribute, adding 10 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and two steals.  LaMarcus Aldridge led all Spurs with 20 points, but the real story was the scrappy play of Manu Ginobili.  At 40 years old, he played an inspiring game, knocking down 18 points and playing pesky defense. Patty Mills also played a good game for the Spurs in this tough defensive battle.

Kyle Kuzma led all Lakers with 21 points, while Julius Randle added 17.
