The Milwaukee Bucks continue their road to a Summer league championship when. they play the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Bucks play at 3:00 pm CST on NBA TV.

Where We’re At

The Bucks have had two close games in this summer league. They were able to edge past the Los Angeles Clippers but fell short of the Brooklyn Nets. Part of the issue revolved around Milwaukee’s poor three point shooting and inability to get consistent offense going from anyone not named Jordan Nwora. Sandro Mamukelashvili has shown flashes, which is encouraging, and the hope he has a breakout game is growing.

Minnesota has won both of their summer league games with their recent win against the Chicago Bulls 78-59 (yes, that was actually the score).

Player to Watch: Mamadi Diakite

After having a not so great time against Nets where he racked up four fouls in 12 minutes of play, the worst of Mamadi’s day was when he asked a Nets player “what did the five fingers say to the face?”

Surely it can’t get worse for him today.
