The Milwaukee Bucks are heading home for Game Five of their opening round series against the Chicago Bulls. After losing Game Two (and Khris Middleton) at home, the Bucks made statement wins in Games Three and Four. Grayson Allen, whom the Bucks acquired for Sam Merrill during the offseason, was a major part of the team’s success. In Game Three, Allen had 22 points and six rebounds while shooting 71.4% from three. In Game Four, he had 27 points while shooting 85.7% from three. During his hot shooting streaks, the Bucks players on the bench all booed him. In their postgame press conferences, they explained why.

"Maybe we got to boo him even more"

Jrue Holiday Says the Bucks Boo Grayson Allen in Practice
Jrue Holiday, too, had himself a great game against the Chicago Bulls in Game Four. The Bucks’ point guard had 26 points and seven assists while shooting 5/8 from three. After the game, he explained that the Bucks players started booing Grayson Allen in practice as a joke. Allen was booed loudly by Bulls fans both in Milwaukee and Chicago because of his foul on Alex Caruso earlier this season.

What is most astounding about this stat is that Allen is shooting 11/14 from three over his last two games. He was 5/7 in Game Three and 6/7 in Game Four. It’s not the first time Allen has made franchise history this season. Earlier, he hit five or more threes in three consecutive games. Only three Bucks players had done that before.
