Eastern Conference giants Milwaukee Bucks have not been in their prime this season. After an impactful start, their lacunas have over powered their strength. They seem to have lost their momentum. Former MVP and captain of Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo seems distressed with the recent scale of performances. However, he has never left any chance to encourage the team. After a rough patch in the mid-season with 4 straight losses, Antetokounmpo us positive that the team has a lot to deliver.
The Milwaukee Bucks have 4 losses at a stretch now. Their loss to Suns, Jazz and OKC had already put them in the back seat. Now their defeat to former champions Toronto Raptors has raised glaring issues for the franchise to work on. Their loss today was unfortunate. Despite a 34-point and 10 assist double-double, Giannis failed to edge past Canadian counterparts. Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam added 56 pints together. The team effort of the raptors crippled the Bucks’ defense. At many instances they failed to cover the open man shooting the ball. Despite such games, former MVP and DPOY Giannis thinks there isn’t much to be concerned over the momentum.
Giannis Antetokounmpo still calm after Milwaukee Bucks suffer 4th straight loss
Giannis Antetokounmpo made it to the press expressing his views regarding their losses. He said, “Not the end of the world.” He added that there isn’t “need to panic” for the team. The absence of Jrue holiday has impacted the team hugely. The inconsistency of the team has become a down fall. Their unsettled defense and lack of transition offence has got them lacking behind. Milwaukee are considered to be giants of the game. Their fantastic playmaking including Khris Middleton and Giannis has not been prominent this season.
Trading Holiday and Eric Bledsoe has weakened the shooting efficiency. Middleton is undoubtedly a great shooter and has some great records but a supportive game is some way falling sort for the Bucks. The front court guards have a lot of responsibility if they need to go deeper into playoffs.
