The Milwaukee Bucks demolished the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves 143-121 in their final dress rehearsal before the regular season opener in Charlotte, North Carolina versus the Hornets on Wednesday.
Giannis’ performance this preseason in three games has been absolutely astonishing to watch. It is evidently clear that he’s gunning for the coveted MVP trophy this season. I try not to get worked up about preseason shenanigans, but it’s hard not too when you watch Giannis and the Bucks under head coach Mike Budenholzer. I mean, how do you guard someone who can make this look so routine?
3. Christian Wood has forced himself on to the Bucks final roster with his performance this season. He chipped in another strong performance versus Minnesota, racking up 19 points (7-9 FG) to go along with 7 boards in 16 minutes of play. More importantly, Wood knocked down 2-3 shots from long range. A lot of Bucks fans were intrigued when the Bucks inked him to a training camp deal, and we are seeing why. It’s hard to ignore how well he’s played this preseason, and he could be another diamond in the rough for Milwaukee this season....
