Milwaukee has been up and down this season but they arrive in Dallas on a four game winning streak. Their long armed approach is yielding dividends and it is fun to see that not every team is trying to be like the Warriors. If they have truly figured out who and what they are they should breeze through Dallas.
The Mavs knew this was going to be a rough season but I don’t they though it would be this bad. The lone saving grace is that it looks like they drafted well in nabbing Dennis Smith Jr.
The move to acquire Eric Bledso looks pretty good. Four games in and they have yet to lose and that is without the guard providing all that much production. I guess you could say that he is fitting in.
Hopefully he is smart enough to realize that on a better team he does not have to do as much. The engine of the Bucks if Giannis Antetokounmpo who continues to fill stat sheets at an elite level – 30ppg, with 10 boards and 5 assists. All without much of a jump shot, still.
The Bucks are lethal on the perimeter thanks to Khris Middleton getting back to the form he showed a couple of years ago when he averaged 18ppg. He is at that level again and provides a complimentary threat to Giannis as both a shooter and a cutter,
Malcolm Brogdon is proving his rookie of the year campaign was no fluke. As their starting PG he adds to the immense length the Bucks put on the floor every night. He is also making half of his three point shots and fits perfect because his game does not demand dominating the ball.
Milwaukee is poised to go on a nice run right now but they might get caught looking ahead to Washington.
The Mavs are bad. There is no real strength to this team and even though they might have drafted well this season there is not a ton of reason to expect things to change. Harrison Barnes is seeing his numbers down from a year ago. That is a bad sign as they want him to be the lead dog for this team.
Dennis Smith is as talented as any guard in the current rookie class. He probably went lower than expected because playing at NC State did not do much for his profile. Right now he is having a strong rookie season while still making lots of rookie mistakes. Unlike some other rookie point guards you can see how he will be an all-star one day.
This season they are technically playing Dirk a lot at center. While that creates some mismatches it hurts the team defensively and on the boards. Given who else comes off the bench in the pivot for the Mavs they are one of the weakest interior teams in the NBA right now.
