Michael Beasley: Two years ago, Malcolm Brogdon won Rookie of the Year with 10 points and three rebounds a game, but now Lonzo is 11-7-7 and he’s a bust? I’m a Lonzo fan. I think if you just let him play and not worry about if he can shoot or not, I think you will see a player that knows how and wants to play a complete game of basketball. Same thing with Kyle Kuzma. I liked him in college but didn’t know how skilled he was until I played against him in the NBA. Josh Hart, same thing.
With Maker on the floor, the Bucks are allowing just 102.3 points per 100 possessions, a number in line with what the league’s Top 5 defenses allowed during the regular season. “I think people always talk about the energy with Thon, but that’s selling him short,” Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon said. “I think that’s a knock. Thon is skilled and very productive. I think he’s super talented.”

Middleton has been in a shooting zone the entire series. For the four postseason games against the Celtics, he is shooting a scorching 61 percent from the field. He’s been especially hot from beyond the arc, having connected on 15 of 23-pointers in this series. That’s an off-the-charts 63 percent, easily the best percentage of any player in the playoffs who has attempted a minimum of 15 treys. “He’s playing like an All-Star right now’’ said Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon. “That’s the ultimate compliment I can give him. When Khris is shooting the ball like that, when he’s locked in on defense, he is one of the most complete players in the league.’’
Maker, plain and simple, has been a difference-maker in this series. “I think Thon’s mental toughness is underrated,’’ Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon said. “When you talk about toughness and grit, Thon is the definition of that. “He’s stayed locked in. He hasn’t played a lot this season, but he’s been able to come into the playoffs and play really well. There’s not many guys in the NBA who could have done that.’’ “I think he’s been the X-factor for us.’’
The second job Egan helped Prunty led to a 20-year career in the NBA. It includes stints as an assistant coach/video coordinator on three Spurs championship teams; an assistant on Dallas’ 2006 Western Conference championship team; a role in coaching Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan in their MVP seasons; coaching Duncan, Kyrie Irving and Malcolm Brogdon in their rookie of the year seasons; and being on the bench during coach of the year seasons for Popovich and Avery Johnson. “I’ve been very fortunate to work with a group of people like that,” said the 49-year-old Prunty, who has also had a hand in Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s development.
