Even though the Bucks are the only unbeaten team in the league right now, the visiting Pistons nonetheless decided to take on the league’s top squad. Due to Cade Cunningham’s 5-for-9 mid-range shooting performance, Brook Lopez was penalised for his inability to close out. Jade Ivey continued to rush the Bucks’ paint with his speed and made 7 of 8 shots from behind the rim.
The two still need to improve on many aspects of their performances, such as Cunningham’s poor turnover management and Ivey’s limited shooting range, but despite competing against the Bucks’ top defense, they already know how to frustrate their opponents. In addition to Bojan Bogdanovic’s strong offensive performance, their incredible energy allowed the team to escape a tough situation.
The Bucks were partly to blame for Monday night’s unsuccessful effort at home. Only the third player on the team to play less than 32 minutes on the court was Giannis Antetokounmpo. It suited head coach Mike Budenholzer’s plan to lighten his load, but it also had a lot to do with his erratic fouling.
Antetokounmpo was unable to continuously stay on the floor to contribute to the Bucks’ defence after committing two personal fouls in the fourth quarter. The Pistons had a 31-22 lead at this point and were on the verge of pulling off a victory.
Jrue Holiday, who shot 5-for-6 in the first quarter to help the team gain an early lead, and his two crucial triples in the fourth quarter helped the Bucks regain their footing. The Bucks were fortunate to have Jrue Holiday. He also contributed 10 assists, ensuring that Lopez and Bobby Portis had plenty to work with offensively.
