The Milwaukee Bucks have started off the 2018-2019 season strong, and leading the Central Division standings, but franchise cornerstone Giannis Antetokounmpo says that the team’s slow starts to games needs to be addressed moving forward.
“We definitely need to fix it,” Antetokounmpo said, according to ESPN.
“We have to do a better job trying to set the tone. I think we did a better job this game, but we can do a lot better. But talent always saves us. I feel like we’re so talented that when were down 10, down 15, we can always get back in the game. But we know that down the road, that is not going to help us. We have to be able to set the tone and have control of the full game.”
The concern is shared by the Bucks coaching staff as well.
“I don’t want to overreact,” Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said. “In a perfect world, you’d be great for all four quarters. That is kind of our goal, our mission, to play better for more of the 48 minutes than our opponent.”
Hornets Sign Jalen McDaniels
The McDaniel signings comes off the heels of the team releasing Thomas Welsh, which created the necessary roster spot of the addition of McDaniels.
McDaniels averaged 15.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists last season for San Diego State.
Hornets Release Thomas Welsh
The Charlotte Hornets have released veteran big man Thomas Welsh, according to the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell.
Welsh spent his rookie season on a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets, but was waived in July.
The Hornets picked him up shortly thereafter, but he now becomes an unrestricted free agent if he successfully clears waivers.
Pacers Sign Walt Lemon Jr.
It will be interesting to see how the Pacers utilize Lemon moving forward.
