Bucks' Defense Struggling To Stop Bigs
The Milwaukee Bucks have several strong shotblockers, but that doesn't mean that their interior defense is effective in limiting easy buckets.
Multiple opposing big men have had strong games against the Bucks in the preseason.
"One of the things about having shot blockers is they're normally blocking shots of smaller people driving in there," Scott Skiles said. "And we're very good at that.
"But big people operating on us in there, you need guards and other people cracking back and dealing with those guys. It's something we're still trying to work on, still trying to get our habits straight.
"It involves everybody. When penetration comes, the big people have a responsibility to step up and stop it. Sometimes that's a block; sometimes it's stepping up higher and stopping it. Then their man is loose, and we have to make multiple reactions."
