Bryn said he’s faced an adjustment period since re-joining the Spurs.

“It’s a little bit harder (to find rhythm) with less minutes,” he said.

He entered tonight averaging 12.1 mpg after averaging 19.3 with Milwaukee last season. – 11:25 PM

ATTN @NoDunksInc:

We have a wedgie in Milwaukee. Saben Lee tried a runner and it got stuck with 1:32 left here in the fourth quarter. I believe that is #10 this season. – 10:13 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Bobby Portis has ANOTHER game with six, three-pointers. #Bucks are rolling. – 10:09 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Bucks ATO gets Bobby Portis a corner 3. That’ll do.

Bucks up, 112-90, with 3 minutes left. – 10:08 PM

#Pistons Frank Jackson (left ankle sprain) is doubtful to return. – 10:04 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Frank Jackson is doubtful to return with a left ankle sprain, per the Pistons – 10:03 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Not the prettiest game, but the Bucks are still in control. They lead, 103-86, with 6:11 left.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has 33pts/6reb/4ast. Holiday with 22pts/7reb/5ast. – 10:00 PM

https://img.particlenews.com/image.php?url=2srfra_0d6KRaS800

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Cory Joseph has only played seven minutes and 20 seconds so far. He was probable going into tonight with a right ankle sprain. Saben Lee’s played about 26 minutes, and has been one of Detroit’s most energetic players. – 9:58 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

That was Grayson Allen’s first basket – #Bucks are up 101-81. – 9:57 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Did that Grayson Allen corner 3 go off glass? – 9:56 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard

#Pistons Frank Jackson stepped on Grayson Allen’s ankle and he’s walking off a left-ankle injury. He’ll stay in the game. – 9:55 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

After three quarters, Middleton was 2-of-12. He’s hit 3-of-4 in the first two and a half minutes of the fourth quarter.

Bucks up, 96-79, with 9:16 left. – 9:53 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday scored 22 of the #Bucks 24 points in the third quarter. So, they start the fourth on the bench to get a breather – and Khris Middleton scores six early, forcing a #Pistons timeout. – 9:52 PM

Encouraging signs from Jrue Holiday the past couple games. He shot >50% in his first two games of the season, then coming back from injury went nine straight games under 50% before hitting 8/14 on Monday and now 7/13 tonight. – 9:39 PM

#Bucks answer #Pistons‘ 9-0 run with a 10-2 spurt, and the lead is 81-67, 4:48 3Q – 9:36 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Jrue Holiday coming to life a little bit offensively. Two step back threes and the Bucks have a little space now.

They lead, 81-67, with 4:46 left in the third. – 9:35 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

#Bucks up 78-67. It feels like the #Pistons don’t have enough to come back and win this game, but they definitely can make the Bucks have to work a full 48 for it. – 9:35 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Really nice night for Saben Lee so far. 10 points and four assists after that layup – 9:35 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Pistons sticking around in this one. On the second night of a back-to-back, they could have faded, but they’re still playing hard.

Bucks up, 71-65, with 6:42 left in the third quarter. – 9:30 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard

#Pistons use a 9-0 run, with a pair of 3-pointers from Saddiq Bey, to pull within 71-65, 6:43 3Q – 9:29 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo played 16 minutes in the first half. He grabbed his shorts. He laid on the floor to catch his breath after a foul. He paced into the tunnel. He sat on the bench before the half.

Yet…

Pistons trailed by 17 in the first, got within 3 midway through the second. Milwaukee closed the 2nd with a 18-9 run. Pistons improved their effort, but it’s the defending champs. – 9:07 PM

#Pistons got within 46-43, but the #Bucks got a three-point play from Holiday and a 3-pointer from Connaughton to push it to 9. – 8:59 PM

Pistons managed to get the deficit to just three points, but the Bucks quickly pushed it back out to nine with a Holiday and-one and a Connaughton 3.

Holiday has 11pts/3reb/3ast. Bucks up, 52-43, with 4:44 left in the first half. – 8:57 PM

Saben is still the best body-catcher on the roster. Almost got one on Giannis. He had a few posters and almost-posters last season – 8:50 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

I applaud Saben Lee’s bravery. He saw he was heading towards a meeting at the summit with Giannis Antetokounmpo and kept going.

Antetokounmpo looked to get the ball, but got called for the foul.

Giannis made the “review it” motion. Bud called a timeout and challenged. – 8:49 PM

#Pistons Saben Lee tried to commit assault-and-battery on Giannis.

Khris Middleton stands alone at No. 5 all-time on the #Bucks franchise list for steals. He was tied with Brian Winters with 918. – 8:20 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Grayson Allen barely got a handle on that bounce pass from Khris Middleton, but still managed to throw it towards the rim and Giannis Antetokounmpo flew through the air to finish the alley-oop.

Filthy stuff all around. – 8:18 PM

#Bucks run out to a 10-0 lead, making four of their five shots. – 8:16 PM

Bucks start the game on a 10-0 run and Dwane Casey calls for a timeout.

This is the second night of a back-to-back and that is the exact opposite way they wanted to start it. Tired legs and need to make a comeback? Rough stuff. – 8:16 PM

Just so people know, #Pistons Cade Cunningham is initiating the offense.

There’s a narrative out there that when Cade plays with Cory Joseph that he doesn’t touch the ball … which is … false. – 8:15 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Bucks drew up a set for a backdoor cut for Jrue Holiday and he gets scoring started tonight with a left-handed dunk.

Easy way to finish better at the rim, I suppose. – 8:12 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

The only guy who can consistently guard KD’s turnaround from the mid-post is Giannis. And that’s only because Giannis is enormous and long. Even then, it’s not like KD misses it a lot. – 7:55 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

So…

Do the #Bucks build off that last win v. Orlando and get to the dessert early or are they going to play with the food again? It’s the only real question with the other* worst team in the East on the court tonight. – 7:52 PM

Pop on Bryn Forbes:

“He’s just having a tough time getting a rhythm, finding his game. He knows the program very well.”

Forbes is averaging 4.8 points, 2.3 three-point attempts and 12.1 minutes per game after averaging 10.0, 4.9 and 19.3 with Milwaukee last season. – 7:13 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Casey on being patient with a young team: “They’re seeing some of these things for the first time. Even last year, a lot of our second-year guys didn’t see big crowds, like they’ll see in Milwaukee tonight. All of these things are learning experiences for us.” – 6:41 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Casey said the Pistons have to be stronger when driving to the basket. Said they’re not always going to get the calls that teams with more star power get. – 6:38 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard

#Pistons Dwane Casey on Hamidou Diallo’s effectiveness: “He does a good job of attacking the rim and finishing … that kind of helps negate some of the lack of 3-point shooting. His energy and athleticism is a plus.” – 6:36 PM
