Coach Budenholzer said: “It’s a bit conditioning, it’s just a rhythm.” “Everyone else is ready to participate in live games, and there are 10 to 12 to 14 days every other day (maybe 5 games every 5 days) ) And personal work, all of these, so I think I give Bled and Pat a few 5. At least 5 vs. 5 sessions, and in other cases or within a few days, 3 vs. 3 sessions. They only need to compete , So I think this is a big obstacle. As the game progresses, training and rhythm will follow, so we will ensure that they can get some benefits from it before participating in the NBA game.”
Both players missed Buck’s three-set melee.
Bledsoe is a member of the 2019 NBA defensive first team, and Connaughton will be highly missed on the defensive end.
“Obviously, Eric and Pat are excellent players. They have brought a lot of things to the team on both the defensive and offensive ends,” Giannis Antetokounmpo ( Giannis Antetokunmpo) said. “They are super aggressive and can knock down shots, but in the end, we have to do what we have to do. We have to go there to compete and I think you will strengthen.”
The 53-12 Bucks face the 43-21 Celtics at 6:30 pm.
