The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to look like a formidable force in the NBA again, thanks to the chemistry that’s building between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard. The team has switched back to their drop defense, which is helping them on both ends of the court. In their latest game, against the Wizards on Monday night, they won five in a row with Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the way with 42 points on 20-of-23 shooting, 13 rebounds and eight assists.
It’s easy to forget that early in the season, teams thrown together over the summer usually need time to gel. But despite facing some weaker opponents like Washington in their current schedule, the Bucks are using this time to find their footing and establish themselves as a threat once again. There are still many questions left to answer, such as Khris Middleton’s health and role on the team. But for now, it looks like things are finally starting to come together for the Milwaukee Bucks.
