The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off a 4-0 week with victories over the Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets and Dallas Mavericks. That comes on the heels of a somewhat slow start that saw them at just one game above .500.
Milwaukee has been battling injuries to some key guys to start the year. Jae Crowder is out for two months with a groin injury, MarJon Beauchamp is now battling a sprained ankle and Khris Middleton is still on a pretty limited minutes restriction. Regardless, we are beginning to get an understanding of new head coach Adrian Griffin’s rotation.
In this episode of the Bucks Film Room podcast, I use Cleaning the Glass’s positional denominations (point guard, combo guard, wing, forward, and bigs) to take a position-by-position look at the Bucks and their rotation up to this point.

Of course, with all of the conversation around Griffin on social media, I also shared my thoughts on the start of his coaching tenure. Sure, there have been some red flags to begin the season and some ugly moments, but it’s important we exercise patience at this point in the season. He’s only been a head coach for 13 games and the team is experiencing a lot of turnover outside of his addition.
The goal of the podcast is to help you become a more intelligent basketball fan. I’ll cover the Bucks in great detail during the pod and break down the game to help us understand what’s happening on the court. It will drop every Monday on Apple, Spotify and YouTube.
