If there’s a dark horse in the NBA this season, it might be Milwaukee.
After falling in their second game to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bucks managed back-to-back victories against the Portland Trailblazers (113-110) and the Charlotte Hornets (103-94).
Leading the way for Coach Jason Kidd was his would-be 2018-18 MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak finished with 32 points and 14 rebounds, making it the fourth straight game where he had 30-plus points.
In case you were wondering, the NBA season is exactly four games old.
Afterward the win against Charlotte, Coach Kidd credited his team’s offensive patience as a key factor in Giannis and the team’s scoring success.
“I thought the guys executed their sets offensively and I thought they were patient,” Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said. “Sometimes we can get in a rush and take that first shot because it’s wide open but turning down a good shot to get a great shot, those are what the good teams do in this league, and I thought that’s what we did tonight.”
