Without Middleton, Milwaukee's depth suffers.Middleton is crucial for the Milwaukee Bucks' offence that he often functions as a "security blanket" because of his ability to hit jumpers from wherever.
"Hero-Ball" Isn't in it for the money.Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday have managed to take just under 58 percent of the Bucks' total shots in this series after four games. Against Boston, Giannis averages 39.8 minutes per game and Holiday averages 38.9 minutes per game.
