Giannis is on a tear right now recording a franchise record three straight triple-doubles. He put up 31 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists against the Washington Wizards Sunday night. In the third-quarter the Bucks had a commanding 26 point lead. The Wizards came back led by Bradley Beal, who put up 37 points. Westbrook was great all night and had 23 points along with 17 assists.
After the game Beal said “We were just taking some precautionary measures,” Beal said. “The knee feels a lot better, my whole body feels great. I felt refreshed and rejuvenated tonight.” He sat out the previous game before Sunday.
The Wizards are in a tricky spot. They just lost their fourth game in a row and having two all-star caliber players isn’t cutting it. This roster needs a complete turn around and a fresh restart. They should deal Beal and Westbrook for picks. They could get a haul for both of these players. They all ready got rid of John Wall. It is only a matter of time for Beal and Westbrook.
Seven Bucks players were in double digits and every player scored who saw minutes. The Bucks need to start closing out teams better. They get these leads and they blow them in a blink of an eye. The Bucks have turned the corner and are starting to gain chemistry with the new roster.
After the game Middleton said “Nobody settled just to get a shot up.”
Brook Lopez had a great night and scored 22 points and had four blocks. He has started to play better on both ends of the floor. He is becoming a key to the Bucks success. Giannis has also been player like he wants the MVP again for a third straight year. He is putting up monster numbers.
Bucks will be in good shape as long as they keep up their winning ways.
