The Bucks are the worst team in the NBA, so let that inform the rest of your reading.
It’s fair to say that the Bucks are looking forward to late June and the NBA Draft. Brandon Knight is shooting 41.8 percent and leads the team in scoring. Ersan Ilyasova and O.J. Mayo are underperforming. Larry Sanders is an off-the-court letdown and injury prone. The Bucks have few offensive weapons, arguably the worst defense in the league, can barely rebound, and rank fourth in turnover percentage.
The lone bright spot on the Bucks may be the rise of Giannis Antetokounmpo. While his numbers aren’t great, Giannis has made some big-time plays this year. Considering he’s only 19, Bucks fans have a lot to be excited for. (Just not this year.)
Even throughout the tumultuous Nets season, they have still managed to beat up on the Bucks. The Nets are coming off destroying the Nuggets in their last game. Even though they will be without Kevin Garnett, the Nets should still be able to take care of the Bucks with ease.
