Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard and the Milwaukee Bucks are experiencing a surge of success as they work to build chemistry and improve their play. The team has switched back to its drop defense, which has been effective on both sides of the court.
In recent games, the Bucks have won five in a row, including a victory over the Wizards on Monday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo was instrumental in that win, scoring 42 points on 20-of-23 shooting, grabbing 13 rebounds and dishing out eight assists.
While it’s easy to draw sweeping conclusions about a team’s performance after just a few games, it’s important to remember that it takes time for teams thrown together over the summer to gel. The Bucks may be facing some challenges early on in the season, but they are using this time to find their footing and establish themselves as a threat once again.
There are still many questions to be answered about the team, such as Khris Middleton’s health and role. However, with time and continued improvement, the Bucks have shown that they have the potential to succeed this season.
