Every Monday we will look at which Milwaukee Buck stood out from a game changing performance, or provided consistent production over the previous week. We will do the same for one other player within the central division (Bulls, Pacers, Pistons, Cavaliers).
The all-star break spread one week’s worth of action out into two weeks. Over this two week span, the Bucks finished 3-1 with their lone loss coming against the Utah Jazz.
King of the Court- Michael Beasley
Beasley has been a solid spark for the Bucks since Jabari Parker suffered his season-ending knee injury. Over the past four games, Beasley has averaged 19 points (71% FG), 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals across 27.3 minutes per game. Beasley’s lowest shooting percentage among these four games was 59%. He has transitioned quite nicely into the second scoring option behind the Greek Freak. Beasley and Greg Monroe have taken over the bulk of the scoring void left by Jabari.
King of the Court- Jimmy Butler, Chicago Bulls
Jimmy Butler wins this week’s divisional king of the court award. Butler posted his first career triple-double (18 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) in a huge win over the Cleveland Cavaliers this past Saturday. Butler has also been a crucial part of the Bulls’ current four game winning streak, averaging 22 points, 9.5 assists and 2.5 steals across a whopping 40 minutes per contest.
