Antetokounmpo had 26 points and 15 rebounds and Khris Middleton added 25 points to help Milwaukee beat the Indiana Pacers 118-101 on Friday night in the regular-season opener in the new Fiserv Forum. The Bucks hoisted up a franchise-record 47 3-point attempts. “To some degree if we’re attacking the paint, we’re attacking the basket and we’re getting great shots there, then we’ll take them,” first-year Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “If there’s going to be rotations, there’s going to be helps, there’s going to be shifts, and there’s opportunities to shoot threes, then we’ll take those.”
People are picking Giannis for MVP. He improves every season. Should we expect yet another big jump? Khris Middleton: I think so, definitely. I think you’re going to see a whole new Giannis this year. With that being said, it’s more of a guy not hesitating more and shooting more freely. [He will take] 3s and midrange and whatever, but without him hesitating or trying to force the issue. I think this offense is going to be perfect for him, where he won’t have to put too much stress on his body. He can take what the defense gives him. And then there’s going to be times when he just puts his head down and goes and does what he does best. But I think you’re going to see a new Giannis regarding shooting 3s more and just playing more freely.
Darren Wolfson: “Is Goran Dragic available [in exchange for Jimmy Butler]? Yeah, the Wolves could acquire Goran Dragic. Is Hassan Whiteside available? Yeah, the Wolves could acquire Hassan Whiteside. From Houston, you can get Eric Gordon. You can get PJ Tucker. The Rockets want Jimmy Butler. The Bucks are willing to offer Malcolm Brogdon, Eric Bledsoe—the Bucks still have interest in Jimmy Butler, but they’re not willing to move Khris Middleton. … The Clippers are also still very, very interested in Jimmy Butler.”
Khris Middleton, one of the Bucks leaders and main men, frankly conceded he and the rest of his Bucks colleagues had learned a bitter lesson. “We were saying 50 wins, 60 wins, whatever,’’ Middleton said of previous season’s predictions. “And it hasn’t happened yet, “So, to me, and I hate to say this, but we looked like fools in the past, saying we were going to do this and that and we didn’t back up what we said. “So, the guys are now motivated by those previous years to do it now.’’
