Brew Hoop Podcast: Talking Bucks' defense and the Greg Monroe Era of Bucks offense

It's no secret that the Milwaukee Bucks are going through a bit of an identity crisis. While their Greg Monroe-centric offense has seen demonstrable improvement, the Bucks' once-vaunted defense has suffered through an early season malaise full of missed rotations and entirely bereft of defensive rebounds. And while the Bucks continue to force turnovers at a respectable clip, heading into Tuesday's matchup in Washington even that strength was well off their league-leading pace from a year ago. Our Eric Nehm broke down the Bucks' defensive struggles at Milwaukee Magazine late last week,...

Brace Yourselves: Regression is coming for Greg Monroe's mid-range mastery

The Bucks' big man in the middle has been terrific so far, but there's one area where he's playing way over his head. The Greg Monroe experience has been a pleasant one so far. He's scoring with career-high levels of efficiency (60.1 TS%), he's facilitating the offense (assisting on almost a fifth of the team's field goals while he's on the floor), and his turnover rate is the lowest since his rookie season. Taking him off the court has been, simply put, devastating in the early season: in his 298 minutes of court time, the Bucks have plus-2.4 net efficiency rating. When Monroe hits the...

VIDEO REPORT: Bucks working to 'consistently' keep energy level high

Greivis Vasquez: I'm struggling with my shot, but it'll come

Greivis Vasquez is confident he'll shake his shooting woes at the right time for the Bucks. The temperature in Wisconsin has fallen significantly in recent days, but not as much as Greivis Vasquez's shooting percentages. Vasquez's early season numbers haven't resembled a player known as a scorer and shooter, especially one the Milwaukee Bucks traded a future first-round pick for on draft night. Through seven games, Vasquez has connected on an abysmal 22.4 percent of his shots overall and just 13.8 percent from deep. It's a small sample size, of course, but Vasquez's performance Saturday...

VIDEO: Kidd 'needed someone' to spark Bucks' bench unit

Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd was looking for a spark off the bench tonight when his team need it the most. Tied at 44 with the Brooklyn Nets at halftime, the Bucks gathered just five points from their second unit, with all five of those points coming courtesy of veteran Jerryd Bayless. Bayless was only getting started, as he scored 14 points down the stretch of the game while handing out 10 dimes, propelling the Bucks to their fourth straight victory. "We talked as a team. We need some energy, someone to step up." Kidd said after the game. Bayless came up big for the Bucks against...

Bucks vs. Nets Final Score: Bayless, Monroe come up big as Bucks beat Nets 94-86

For the second time in a week, Jerryd Bayless and Greg Monroe dominated Brooklyn. Last week seems like so long ago, doesn't it? After taking a few games to find their sea legs, the Milwaukee Bucks rattled off their fourth consecutive win and topped the Brooklyn Nets for the second time this season, 94-86, inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center. After a relatively even first half, the Bucks (4-3) grabbed hold of the game in the second half thanks to great performances by Greg Monroe and Jerryd Bayless.  Monroe, whose one-on-one matchup with Brook Lopez dictated a good amount of the first...

Knicks batter Bucks, Monroe in season-opening statement

MILWAUKEE — Greg who? There was a trace of cockiness from the Bucks at BMO Harris Bradley Center before the season opener. Milwaukee was coming off a playoff season and debuting its free-agent center Greg Monroe, who spurned the woebegone Knicks because he felt Phil Jackson’s club was in a state of ruin. “Welcome to...
