The NBA season is just about to tip off. That means it’s time to check in on the Milwaukee Bucks and what their 2019-19 season will look like.
The Milwaukee Bucks tip off their 2018-19 regular season on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at the Charlotte Hornets. Bucks’ fans were already excited for that contest following the offseason and the play of the team during the preseason only enhanced that excitement.
The Bucks were very impressive during their four-game exhibition set and went 3-1. Even though they played the hot mess that is the Minnesota Timberwolves two times they took care of business.
The offense was especially impressive. They employed a new strategy under new head coach Mike Budenholzer that was much more modern than what they were used to. Budenholzer encourages everyone to shoot from the outside and he wants to space the floor for his star player Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo figures to have a lot of room to work and should see his numbers flourish.
Even though Milwaukee still has some kinks to work out defensively, they weren’t all that bad on that end of the floor. It’s clear the Bucks’ players are still learning their assignments, but they flashed some nice ability at different points of the preseason.
With the exhibition games now behind them, the players are looking forward to begin competing in games that count. Milwaukee has a chance to make a lot of noise this season and a fast start would be a great way to begin. Without further ado, here’s your Bucks’ 2018-19 ultimate season preview.
