Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Marc J. Spears: Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton and Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo have been named the NBA Western and Eastern Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for Week 6 of the 2022-23 season (Nov. 21-27).
Jim Owczarski: The #Bucks have formally (again) assigned Khris Middleton, MarJon Beauchamp and Thanasis Antetokounmpo to the #Herd for a practice today. Mike Budenholzer said his team did a ‘very, very, very light practice’ that Middleton participated in also.
Less than one minute later, Stephen Curry got called for a technical for running on the court and waving his towel after Donte DiVincenzo hit a three — a sign of support for Green. Green said he “absolutely” appreciated Curry’s attempt to prove a point. “It’s the NBA, man,” Green said. “Your teammates make a good move, I didn’t affect the play. There was no one near me. So it sucks. And the fact that that’s going to count against my tech count? Common, that’s ridiculous.”
After the Milwaukee Bucks secured a 124-115 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night, Mavs star Luka Doncic had some high praise for former two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, calling him the best player in the league. “It’s hard to go against a guy like that,” Doncic said. “He’s the best player in the NBA right now. He’s almost impossible to stop. It’s really fun to see him play, but it’s not that fun to go against him.”
