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.”
