Kevin Broom is out this week, so I apologize for the delay. I teach three classes in a row and I don’t have a break.
The Washington Wizards lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 117-111 last night. Here are the numbers behind them.
Wizards vs. Bucks: Four Factors
Here are the things that stand out:
- The Wizards were outshot from three and had trouble getting to the foul line — Washington shot 8-of-31 from the three point line and only attempted 12 free throws. The Bucks made 22-of-49 threes and attempted 22 free throws. This more than made up the difference in the game despite Washington’s advantage in turnovers (9 vs. 12 for Milwaukee). These disparities were reflected in the four factors above.
- The Wizards were heavily focusing their offense on two players — Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis had usage ratings of above 30 percent (39.6 percent for Beal and 32.9 percent for Porzingis). The Bucks didn’t have anyone with a usage rating above 30 percent.
