What The Buck Is Up: Milwaukee Bucks Week Four Report

Memorable victories for the Bucks on the road over Eastern Conference rivals.

Live the home of the reigning and defending NBAChampion Milwaukee Bucks, it’s the What The Buck Is Up Report! Each week I will be sharing my thoughts about anything and everything Bucks related as they look to defend their world championship status.

Results and Random Thoughts

Bucks: 118 76ers: 109 (5-6)

Both the Bucks and Sixers were extremely short-handed for a prime time matchup between two of the best in the East. All-Stars Khris Middleton, Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris were all out due to COVID-19 protocols. Amidst trade talk, Ben Simmons continued to sit, leaving Philadelphia without their debatable-called franchise players. Even with Simmons and Embiid, the Sixers gave the defending champs a fight. Tyrese Maxey scored 17 first quarter points and had 31 total, which match Giannis for the game high.

-In games where Giannis is even slightly off, the Bucks struggle to pick him up with secondary scoring. Against the 76ers, Grayson Allen was able to shoulder the second scorer spot against Philly, putting in 23 points with 5 important threes.

-Allen and Giannis have shown a tremendous connection in a short time, shown on the Antetokounmpo-assisted Allen three-pointer with three minutes left that gave the Bucks a 7 point lead and sealed an important victory.

Bucks: 112 Knicks: 100 (6-6)

-Semi is finding his groove with the Bucks, hitting three and grabbing offensive rebounds.

-Bucks went cold to start the fourth, as there 20 point lead was cut to a tie as the Knicks presented a stalwart defense and Derrick Rose provided clutch scoring. The Bucks countered with Paul Rudd-level hotness from three point range to reclaim a 10 point advantage with two minutes left. The Bucks hit six-count-them six threes in a row to seal a vengeful and memorable victory.

-Hill-Holiday-Pat-Pat-Pat-Allen-Allen made the seven clutch threes to seal the contest.

-Career high seven three-pointers made by Pat. Overall the Bucks were 26-50 from three.

Bucks: 113 Celtics: 122 (6-7) 

Despite playing without Giannis, the short-handed Bucks were able to push the Celtics to overtime. Every Milwaukee Bucks starter scored in the double digits, but we’re outdone by Dennis Schroeder’s 38 points.
