Milwaukee Bucks: Takeaways From Win Over Detroit Pistons

The Bucks notched their 24th win in 54 outings, with Monroe posting a double-double of 25 points and 13 rebounds.

It also was the fifth time Milwaukee held an opponent under 90. Giannis, he's an all-star. Monroe hit his first five shots in the second half, making him a ideal 7 for 7 for the game up to that point. "Us being family, me being his brother, you have to pick up the slack and hold the fort down until he gets back".

Matthew Dellavedova, of the Milwaukee Bucks, drives to the basket during the game against the Detroit Pistons in Milwukee.

"It was definitely a complete game for us and it's a game that we needed". "With Jabari down and Giannis not making shots, you can't just call it a night". The rest of the team was 8 of 26 from the field in the first half. That duo combined for 48 points on 22-of-28 shooting.

Antetokounmpo had gone scoreless to that point but finally snapped out of his drought with six in the quarter.

"We've been close", Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson said. I'd expect his playtime to be limited to potentially non-existent if Middleton plays tonight, but his decent defensive showing could mean he'll get a chance against the marksman Caldwell-Pope.

"Just grind it out and get it down to a manageable number and then got a couple big stops and a great shot down the stretch".

This time of year annually brings out Brook Lopez trade rumors and since the Nets go on an eight-game trip after the All-Star break, Wednesday would be his last home game with the team if a trade actually occurred.

During All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, Milwaukee fans can watch co-owner Marc Lasry compete in the Celebrity Game, followed by Brogdon in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge, as his USA squad takes on the World Team Friday night. "We were just playing basketball the right way". The Bucks don't have a lot of scoring options with Parker out and the Pistons are a team that can play well defensively. It wasn't enough to challenge the Bucks, who hit 9 of 14 shots in the final quarter.
