The Milwaukee Bucks concluded their preseason with a dominant win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. How did the players grade on the night?
In their final preseason game before the regular season gets under way, the Milwaukee Bucks showed the promise of what they could be this season in a blowout win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night.
The Bucks’ offense was clicking on all cylinders as they hosted their dysfunctional neighbor to the west. Fresh off a media circus following the latest installment of the Jimmy Butler saga, the Wolves looked uninspiring to say the least.
With a handful of Bucks players still battling it out for the final roster spots, this game served as their final opportunity to impress coach Budenholzer and general manager Jon Horst.
The offense looked similar, if not improved from what we saw in the Bucks’ first preseason game against the Chicago Bulls, with smart passing leading to a ton of open shots, especially from beyond the arc.
The Bucks would surpass the astounding number of threes they attempted in that game with 48 attempts against the Wolves on Friday night, which is the most they would have had in any game all of last season.
In a game that was basically over by midway through the second quarter, Milwaukee put forth a very convincing performance that would result in a 22-point victory.
So without further ado, let’s take a closer look at how the Bucks performed individually as they returned home for their final preseason action before the regular season gets underway.
