The Milwaukee Bucks are on a roll, having won five games in a row after beating the Washington Wizards on Monday night. The success of the team can be attributed to several factors, including the chemistry between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard and the Bucks’ switch back to their drop defense.
Giannis Antetokounmpo played a pivotal role in the team’s victory, scoring 42 points on 20-of-23 shooting, 13 rebounds, and eight assists. This performance has only added to his growing reputation as one of the best players in the league.
It’s important to remember that early in the season, it’s easy to draw sweeping conclusions based on a team’s first few games. However, teams that are thrown together over the summer often need time to gel. Despite facing some tough opponents like Washington, the Bucks are using this part of their schedule to find their footing and look like a legitimate threat once again.
Of course, there are still many questions left to be answered. One of the most pressing is Khris Middleton’s health and role on the team. However, with a full season ahead of them, there is plenty of time for answers to emerge.
