Pat Connaughton

Securing Pat Connaughton will be crucial for Milwaukee Bucks

Entering a loaded offseason for the Milwaukee Bucks, the front office will face plenty of key personnel decisions that will affect the outlook of this title-contending team moving forward. While retaining Bobby Portis should be the top priority on Milwaukee’s offseason to-do list, securing Pat Connaughton, another critical role player, should be a main focal point as well.

How Pat Connaughton has given the Milwaukee Bucks an essential spark

The most significant question for the Milwaukee Bucks entering their second round series against the Boston Celtics was who would step up in Khris Middleton’s absence. Through five games, a few players have noticeably helped the cause. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on a tear with his two-way dominance, Jrue Holiday has made some insanely clutch plays on both sides of the basketball, and Bobby Portis has given the Bucks a nice boost in the second unit. Among the bunch, one player that has stepped up mightily is Pat Connaughton, who has taken his game up a notch coming off the bench in this series.

Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Stays hot in loss

Connaughton supplied 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, one block and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 116-108 loss to the Celtics. Connaughton has knocked down three treys in back-to-back contests. Additionally, he's logged 30-plus minutes in each game -- usage that Connaughton hasn't seen since late December. His size has lended well to defending Boston's wings. It's likely Connaughton continues receiving ample run throughout the series.

Connaughton provided 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-9 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 116-100 victory over the Bulls. Connaughton caught fire from beyond the arc, logging his fourth game of the season with six-plus three-pointers made.

Pat Connaughton has picked up right where he left off for Milwaukee Bucks

On February 10, Pat Connaughton fractured the fourth metacarpal in his right hand as the Milwaukee Bucks visited the Phoenix Suns. The injury would force Connaughton to undergo surgery and miss somewhere around a month, which was a sizeable blow for the Bucks. The veteran had been in the middle of a career year prior to suffering the injury, and many worried whether or not this predicament would snap his rhythm upon returning to the court. Thankfully, Connaughton has put those concerns to bed early on as he has played incredibly well in his first two games back for the Milwaukee Bucks.

He is not on the radar in standard formats, although he can have some value as a streaming option for anyone in need of perimeter scoring.
