Went Monta because he hit the ice free throws while Jennings missed one. That was the tiebreaker for me.

Went Monta because he was great in the 4th but Brandon played extremely well again. Monta for me just edged him out by the slightest of margins.

And I know it's been mentioned before but wow, watching this game made me realize just how easily Monta can get into the lane. He practically got in there at will when he wanted to. Why he settles for long twos is beyond me.

I think Jennings will be a shoo-in for the ASG with Rose sidelined.

Brandon with another great game,has really improved again this year but still needs to hit consistently from deep.

Monta. He closed the game out.
The Bucks are one defensive center away from being the best defense in the league. Own the future. Get me Willie Cauley-Stein

I went with Ellis over Jennings and Dunleavy because of those two clutch shots and the free throws that iced it.
Can't wait to see the transformation in MCW's game under Kidd's tutelage in Milwaukee. I really think he's landed in a perfect situation in Milwaukee and is going to surprise a lot of people. Time will tell.

Ellis

It's like he's auditioning for free agency, which is fine by me.

I went MDJ because had he not come in and righted the ship with both rebounding and scoring, we would have been behind by a large margin (probably) earlier in the game. Instead before he passed the baton off to BJ3 and Monta, he had Milwaukee in an excellent position.

There were three POG players tonight.

Went for Monta because clutch shots are the most important. But Brandon did hit some huge threes towards the end too.

Dang, when I went to bed this morning Brandon was leading 26-17. 28-28 now.

Went with Monta to give him the advantage 30-29 over Jennings. Was at the game and witnessed the crowd's reaction to his one 360 attempt...that was probably the loudest/most hyped I've seen any crowd get in a short period of time, but that shot pissed me off to no end. So it was hard for me to vote Monta, but I thought he really stepped up his effort on the defensive end tonight, but it was still definitely a tossup between he and Jennings.

I gave it to Ellis for his icing the game at the end. Like everyone here has said Jennings was right there with almost identical stat line, but had the 4 steals.

Mark this down as one of those games both guys played well.

I know people will think I'm hating but hitting 30% shots are nice but they are still not good shots. We are just going to have to ride the variance with him I guess. Dunleavy was his usual self, Fatty was good after his awful defensive first quarter. Ersan tried his best to find his way into the game, Udoh made two defensive mistakes which was weird. Larry made two great defensive plays late but was a bit out of control trying to block shots he was never going to get to. Very good win against a team that hit a lot of shots.



yep. i voted BJ, just broke the tie - ;) 6-2!!
God is good.

Return to Milwaukee Bucks
