Post#1 » by Serge28 » Thu Dec 13, 2012 3:33 am

Here are the nominees for tonight's game:

Image
Monta Ellis: 17 points on 7-17 shooting from the field, 1-4 from the free throw line and 2-4 from behind the arc, 8 rebounds, 11 assists, 1 block, and 4 turnovers in 41 minutes. +27

Image
Ersan Ilyasova: 16 points on 7-11 shooting from the field, 1-2 from the charity stripe and 1-1 from downtown, 14 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, and 0 turnovers in 24 minutes. +17

Image
Brandon Jennings: 19 points (8-21, 2-8, 1-1), 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, and 2 turnovers in 42 minutes. +9

Image
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute: 17 points on 6-10 shooting (5-7 from the line), 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 0 turnovers in 26 minutes. +4

Image
Drew Gooden: 7 points on 3-6 shooting (1-2 from the line), 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 1 turnover in 22 minutes. +10

Image
Marquis Daniels: 10 points on 5-13 shooting (0-1 from 3), 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, and 0 turnovers in 31 minutes. +7
Giannis Antetokounmpo's game is a hybrid of Westbrook's and Olajuwon's.

Finished 16-17 season (totals): 14th in the league in points, 15th in rebounds, 18th in assists, 5th in blocks, 9th in steals. First ever to finish in top 20 in all 5. 22 years old.

I think Luc is the only reason we weren't losing in the first half so I went with him. Ersan was the second half MVP.

I thought both Ellis and Ersan were excellent tonight. I guess I'm gonna go with Monta for POG cause he sustained his high level of play longer tonight than Ersan and that +27 (along with a near triple-double) is kind of crazy. Can't go wrong with either one though.

You guys do realize that most of LRMAM's baskets were easy layups and dunks created by Ellis, right? Not taking away anything from his play, I thought he was great in the first half but still...

Cast my vote for Ellis. Not even close. Impeccable passing and penetrating.

I'll go Monta. Played the right way for his one per 10 games.

And now I've tied it.

Gotta go Monta. He really is the most talented guy we have on the team. I know he's inefficient but he commands respect from the opponent. He CAN go off at any given time. Does he usually? Hell no. But he did tonight. I know he's 26 but God if he could just put it all together somehow... 8-) :lol:

I voted Ersan, but after voting I had an immediate guilt pang for not voting for LRMAM. He was pretty much the only player we put on the court that looked like a basketball player for the entirety of the first half.

Ersan for his 2 steals and 2 blocks and general handsomeness.

I voted Ersan but all Monta needs to do is get back to being that guy who shoots 45% from the field. Its like he got to Milwaukee and forgot how to shoot. Those jumpers are just sooooo ugly. But his speed, athleticism, passing, peskiness, and finishing ability are all welcome and fun to watch. Not to mention he plays hard every game for the entire game. So whats different? Is he just taking and missing more long 2's than he did in Golden State?

Return to Milwaukee Bucks
