Well, history is on their side.
Davis went on to add that the length of the Milwaukee Bucks, personified best by Giannis Antetokounmpo, needs to be accounted for, especially when it comes to passing and rebounding. However, he indicated if the Pelicans can take care of the defensive glass, they should be able to create more fast break opportunities because of the Bucks propensity to follow their shot attempts.
While I like the idea of easier scoring opportunities, they still have to convert those chances and so far that’s proven problematic through the first three games. Not only are they having trouble making threes and hitting open shots, they haven’t been efficient in transition.
Could playing a bottom tier team help shake the offense finally out of it’s funk?
