Milwaukee Bucks power forward Thon Maker will continue to start at center, according to head coach Jason Kidd. What It Means: Milwaukee seems to be fully embracing the stretch-five idea after struggling to develop an effective center rotation with John Henson, Greg Monroe, and the recently-traded Miles Plumlee. In seven starts this season, Maker is averaging 7.3 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 3.7 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks. He's averaging 17.4 minutes per game in those starts, and his .608 effective Field Goal Rate is seventh-highest among big men to play at...

Bucks vs. Pistons Final Score: Bucks Pummel Pistons in Milwaukee, 102-89

Monroe and Beasley combine for 48 points in easy victory Conquering the Detroit Pistons proved an easy task for Milwaukee tonight, even with a piddly scoring night from Giannis Antetokounmpo who finished with merely eight points in a rarely-in-doubt 102-89 win for the Bucks. Michael Beasley set the tone from the outset, going 5-5 in the first quarter with Greg Monroe tapping in for the second quarter to pick up the scoring punch off the bench. Detroit looked generally disinterested in playing from the beginning, and their frontcourt had no answer for Beasley or Monroe all night. The Bucks...

Starting now with Parker out, the veteran...

Recap: Bench Brings Bucks a Boost

Recap: Bench Brings Bucks a Boost

Defense and the deep shot powered the Bucks past the Pacers The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Indiana Pacers 116-100 behind a season-high 17 three-pointers and a hefty heap of scoring off their bench, ending a depressing week on a high note. After setting a new career-high in points last night, Giannis Antetokounmpo followed up with another great performance, barely missing a triple-double, with 20 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds, while going 12-14 from the free throw line and manipulating the Pacers porous defense at will. Three players off the bench, Greg Monroe, Malcolm Brogdon and...

Bucks to continue giving Thon Maker minutes off bench

Coach Jason Kidd said Milwaukee Bucks rookie power forward Thon Maker will still get minutes off the bench against the Denver Nuggets on Friday, said head coach Jason Kidd. What It Means: John Henson is starting on Friday night and Greg Monroe is holding down the five for the second unit, so Maker could see time at the four. He doesn't have much fantasy appeal. numberFire's models expect Maker to play only 11.3 minutes versus Denver, and we project him to turn in just 4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds on 3.4 shot attempts.

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks Overtone: Two underdogs getting over the hump

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks Overtone: Two underdogs getting over the hump

These humps, these humps, these small market championship lumps In a lot of ways, the Jazz and Bucks are a mirror image of each other. Two teams that have to overcome a small market with stigmas that keep free agents from wanting to sign in their respective cities. At least that’s how it used to be. The Bucks made waves in 2015 when they were able to sign Greg Monroe to a max contract in free agency. It became a big story that Monroe chose Milwaukee over New York and was one of the bigger signs that the NBA might be changing. Recently the Jazz signed Joe Johnson in free agency, surprising...

Bucks vs. Celtics Final Score: Milwaukee drops another one with overtime loss to Boston, 112-108

Milwaukee’s offense stalls out as Celtics hand Bucks their third OT loss of the year A disastrous start let a faint glimmer of light in at the end, but Milwaukee ultimately perished against the Boston Celtics in overtime, 112-108. Another poor defensive performance gave way to a last-ditch effort down the stretch as Milwaukee worked it to a tie as regulation concluded, but they couldn’t manufacture offense outside of two Tony Snell threes in the final portion. Giannis posted 21 points, six rebounds and six assists with Greg Monroe coming up big late with 14 points, 13 rebounds, three...

He's now averaging 11.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 21.3 minutes per game on the season. Monroe was the...

“Hashtag Raise The Cat”: Sixers 114, Bucks 109

#RaiseTheCat The Sixers entered Milwaukee on the tail end of a back-to-back and despite looking winded at times in the second half, still managed to hang on for a 114-109 victory. The game started out back and forth in the first quarter, however poor front court defense from Nerlens Noel and precision shooting from Greg Monroe inside the paint catapulted the Bucks to a lead. The Bucks in total scored 39 (!!) first quarter points, 28 of which came from inside the paint. Nerlens Noel appeared rather helpless in defending Greg Monroe. It was not a good quarter for the Sixers center, although...
