The Bucks had 3 games this past week. Here is the recap of the action.
November 6th, 2016: Bucks 75 Mavericks 86
The Bucks started off the week in Dallas riding a 3 game win streak. ?The Bucks started off great, taking a 29-17 lead into the 2nd quarter. That is where it started to go wrong, as Milwaukee was outscored by 16 in the quarter, and never really bounced back. The game did go into overtime, but the Bucks only scored 1 point in the entire OT period, while the Mavs scored 12. This was a defensive game. No team shot above 40% field goal, and both were below 25% shooting from 3 point land. Giannis' point production was off, just scoring 11 points. He did grab 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Jabari Parker led the way in scoring, posting 16 points on 8-16 shooting. Mirza Teletovic continued to shoot, making 3 three pointers. Milwaukee had ball security issues, turning it over 27 times.
November 10th, 2016: Pelicans 112 Bucks 106
The Bucks returned to Milwaukee to finish off the season series with the Pelicans. ?Anthony Davis scored 32, E'Twaun Moore scored 20, and Tim Frazier scored 15 for New Orleans, while Jabari scored 33 and Giannis scored 17. Jabari was 1 rebound shy of a double double to compliment his scoring outburst, while Giannis did get a double double again this year. The Bucks were outscored by 8 in the 2nd quarter and never fully recovered, however a 6 point loss is not the end of the world. With a young team, there are bound to be inconsistencies. The Bucks split the season series with the Pelicans at 1 win each.
November 12th, 2016: Grizzlies 96 Bucks 106
The Bucks ended the week with a game at home against the Grizzlies. Last time Memphis was in town, Matt Barnes and John Henson had some heated exchanges that resulted in ejections for both. This time, that was not the case, but the result of the game was the same. The Bucks won again over Memphis. Giannis scored 27, Jabari scored 16, Michael Beasley scored 19, and Malcolm Brogdon scored 12. Brogdon has impressed, and currently ranks 4th on the Rookie Ladder on nba.com. The scoring outburst included solid 3 point shooting, and 52.9% shooting overall. The Bucks will see the Grizzlies one more time this year.
The Bucks end the week with a 5-4 record, and play 3 games this week, including one vs Golden State.
