.The Milwaukee Bucks will be contenders to win the NBA championship once again in the 2022-2023 season. As usual Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday will lead the attack. Now let’s take a look at some of the role players who could have breakout seasons for Milwaukee.
Sandro Mamukelashvili has all the tools to be a solid stretch 4/5 for the Bucks. He is a three level scorer as he shot 49.6% from the field, 42.3% from three, and 81.8% from the free throw line. Granted it is a limited sample size as he only played 9.9 minutes per game and only appeared in 41 games. However when he did play more minutes than usual he showed his potential. In the last game of the regular season he played a whopping 43 minutes and scored 28 points on 10/18 shooting from the field and 2/5 shooting from three. He also went 6/6 from the free throw line, grabbed 13 rebounds and had 4 assists. Brook Lopez is also on the decline which will only benefit Mamukelashvili as he can earn more playing time at center.
Jordan Nwora had an up and down second season for the Bucks. He showed many flashes as he had two 28 point scoring games on the season. Nwora did not have the most consistent shooting numbers on the season. He had games where he shot 1/11, 1/7, 1/6, and 7/23. However his good performances definitely outweigh the bad. He had a 28 point game on 10/16 shooting from the field and 3/5 from three, another 28 point game on 11/21 shooting from the field and 4/8 from three, and a 23 point game on 9/11 shooting from the field and 5/7 from three in just 19 minutes. If Nwora can be a little more consistent this season he will be a key rotation player for the Bucks.
