In Milwaukee on Saturday, the Bucks defeated the Brooklyn Nets, 129-115

Donte DiVincenzo did not earn any run for the Bucks.  Though his trip to the “G” League was a short one, he is struggling to get playing time of late.

He is averaging 16.1 MPG, 5 PPG, 2.5 RPG, and 1.2 APG while shooting 39.3% FG, 24.6% 3PFG, and 81.8% FT.  HIs shooting percentages from the floor aren’t going to get it done.

Omari Spellman was a DNP for the Hawks again.  Spellman is battling injury issues.

Spellman is averaging 17.7 MPG, 6.2 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 1.0 APG while shooting 38.8% FG, 32.3% 3PFG, and 76.7% FT.
