For the first time in what feels like forever, the Milwaukee Bucks finally have multiple rookies on the roster. They selected Jordan Nwora and Sam Merrill in the second round of the 2020 NBA Draft this offseason and signed Mamadi Diakite to a two-way deal as well.

For a contending team like the Bucks, having young talent coming up Cheap Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys to replace aging players for cheap is vital. They were one of the oldest teams in the league last year and made a bit of progress toward youth with these guys, but are still the fifth-oldest team in the NBA in terms Cheap Kyle Korver Jersey of average age.

The number would have gone down more if they had drafted one-and-done 19-year-olds, but they brought in three guys with a total of 11 years of college experience between them. These are guys they are hoping can contribute sooner rather than later, which has made it even more head-scratching why none of them have gotten much run apart from garbage time. They have been able to play here and there and show what they can do, as well as a few games in the G-League that we’ll take Cheap Mamadi Diakite Jersey a look at.

As a note, these grades are not a grade of the draft pick because that hasn’t had enough time to play out yet. They’re simply a grade of how well each guy has played with the opportunities he’s gotten and where he is relative to his expectations.

Sam Merrill
At 24 years old, Merrill doesn’t have much time to be a “developmental player” in the NBA. His 2021-2022 contract also isn’t guaranteed, so he needs to be contributing now if he wants to hold onto his roster spot, and it’s not likely he’s a much sought Cheap Sam Merrill Jersey out guy because the Bucks took him with the final pick in the draft.

The reason that the Milwaukee Bucks took Merrill was obvious; he’s a three-point sharpshooter. In his four-year career at Utah State, Merrill shot a scorching 42 percent from behind the arc on 5.8 attempts per game. They were obviously hoping he’d be a cheap and young replacement for the role Kyle Korver played last season.

So far, in a very small sample size, that shooting ability has carried over to the NBA. He’s made five of his ten shots from deep, exactly half, which is a phenomenal pace if he can do it in regular minutes against real Cheap Jordan Nwora Jersey NBA talent and not other garbage time players.

What we can really dive into more with Merrill are the five games he played in the G-League. In these games, you probably wouldn’t have been able to tell that he was an NBA-Draft pick, unlike most of the other players. He averaged a respectable 11.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists, but on an ugly shooting line of 34.9 from the field, 34.4 from three, and .167 from the line. Yes, he was 1-for-6 on free throws.

He really struggled to score from anywhere on the court other than behind the arc and didn’t do a ton to contribute in other areas either. Being just a three-point threat is ok if you’re really good at it, but Merrill hasn’t proven he’s a knockdown NBA shooter and his lack of explosion keeps him on the bench.

G-League performance isn’t everything, but not having the ability to go down there and take control of games is slightly worrying. His defense is also a major concern and a big part of why he’s seen so much pine this season. He’s slow-footed and lacks the athleticism to keep up with just about anyone in the Association.

Merrill has shown just enough three-point potential in his few games to warrant a grade better than an F, but he needs to make improvements on defense and other areas fast if he’s going to see the floor for the Milwaukee Bucks in any capacity this year.

MILWAUKEE — — Giannis Antetokounmpo followed up his MVP performance in the All-Star Game with his fifth triple-double of the season to help the Milwaukee Bucks trounce the New York Knicks 134-101 on Thursday night.

Antetokounmpo had 24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in 29 minutes, and the Bucks handed the Knicks their most one-sided Wholesale Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys loss of the season. Bryn Forbes added 21 points and made all seven of his 3-point attempts as the Bucks shot 57.5% from the floor.

The Knicks entered the night Cheap Giannis Antetokounmpo Jersey leading the NBA in scoring defense (104.4), field-goal percentage defense (.435) and 3-point percentage defense (.330).

“We were just playing good basketball,” Antetokounmpo said. “We were moving the ball. We were aggressive. We tried to Cheap Brook Lopez Jersey go downhill, finding one another. We were just playing good basketball, just having fun out there.”

The Bucks have won seven of their last eight and now prepare to begin a three-game road swing.

Antetokounmpo was playing for the first time since earning MVP honors at Sunday’s All-Star Game by shooting 16 of 16 from the floor Cheap Mamadi Diakite Jersey (3 of 3 on 3-point attempts) and scoring 35 points. That marked the first time in All-Star Game history that someone had shot 100% from the floor with at least 10 attempts.

He went 8 of 12 from the floor and made all seven of his free throws Thursday. Antetokounmpo was one of seven Bucks to score in double figures.

“We didn’t take care of the transition,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. “We didn’t take care of the paint. We didn’t take care of covering Cheap Bryn Forbes Jersey the line. And then we didn’t finish our defense with rebounding well. They pretty much got everything that they wanted.”

RJ Barrett had 22 points, Alec Burks 17 and Immanuel Quickley 15 for the Knicks.

Brook Lopez scored eight points during a 14-0 run in the first quarter as the Bucks turned a 16-12 deficit into a 26-16 lead they never relinquished.

Milwaukee gained a measure of revenge after falling 130-110 at New York on Dec. 27.

The Bucks shot a season-low 18.4% (7 of 38) in that game while New York was 16 of 27 from beyond the arc. The Bucks were 18 of 38 and Cheap Jrue Holiday Jersey the Knicks went 13 of 37 on 3-point attempts Thursday.

“I think we were locked in defensively, which made it a lot easier on the offensive end,” Forbes said. “The last time we played them, they had a large amount of 3’s, and they were flowing on offense. I think us stopping them on defense let our offense kind of go from there.”

TIP-INS

Thanasis Antetokounmpo radiates energy with every step, and has harnessed it to help resurrect the Milwaukee Bucks from their lowest point this year.

As the Bucks were presented with unprecedented regular season adversity, all of which coincided with Jrue Holiday being sidelined with COVID-19 and missing 10 games as a result, they looked vulnerable and were at the mercy of Cheap Donte DiVincenzo Jersey their opponents. Throughout their five-game losing skid, the Bucks uncharacteristically committed sloppy turnovers, forfeited paint control on both ends, and failed to convert outside looks.

As those symptoms worsened as the skid Cheap Thanasis Antetokounmpo Jersey wore on, peaking with one of their most lifeless performances against the Toronto Raptors, Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer turned to the elder Antetokounmpo to spark some life into the proceedings upon staring down an eventual 110-96 defeat that Thursday night.

That loss served as rock bottom for the Bucks as well as the end of their losing slump. Save for their loss to the Denver Nuggets right before the All-Star break, Thanasis has established himself back in the Bucks’ rotation, often Cheap Jrue Holiday Jersey spelling his younger brother and reigning MVP, Giannis.

By doing so, the Bucks have turned to Antetokounmpo to give them the emotional lift they need, especially in bench minutes. Many Bucks players stand higher in importance, but very few, if any, are able to supply the energy and effort that makes Thanasis the Bucks’ sparkplug in all intents and purposes.

By playing each minute as though it’s his last, Antetokounmpo has seized this opportunity to carve out even in a limited role with the Bucks’ rotation. In his 26 appearances, Antetokounmpo is averaging 2.3 points on 60.5 percent shooting from the field (2-for-9 from three), 2.1 rebounds, 0.7 assists in 8.7 minutes per contest.

More importantly, the Bucks clearly feed off of having Thanasis on the floor, even if he has a -4.8 net rating over his 227 minutes Cheap Nike Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys this season, per NBA.com/stats. The Bucks are 8-2 in games where Thanasis plays 10 or more minutes this season.

However, though, his end-of-rotation designation did come from somewhere. Thanasis’ limited offensive skill and lack of finesse force Coach Bud to keep his on-court stints short and sweet. Effort-based intangibles are just as valuable, though, and few contribute more than the lesser-known Antetokounmpo.

Such a unique player deserves a holistic performance analysis and without further ado, let’s look at just how Thanasis impacts the Bucks when he steps on the floor.
