Milwaukee Bucks (9-2):
What a difference a coach can make. The Bucks blew out the Warriors in Oakland last night to move to 9-2 on the season. They were expected to be a playoff team, but have started the season like one of the top teams in the league. Coach Mike Budenholzer has changed their approach for the better on both sides of the ball. Offensively, they have surrounded Giannis Antetokounmpo with shooters, and are second in the league in three point shooting rate. Defensively, they use their length to make everything tough, and rebound over 80 percent of opponents misses.
Doing everything for the Bucks. Flashing a 25.6/12.9/5.7 line, and currently has a league best DBPM leading one of the league’s best defenses. He still doesn’t shoot threes, but apparently doesn’t have to in order to be one of the dominant forces in the league.
