Malcolm Brogdon is back in the starting lineup for the Milwaukee Bucks, and for good reason.
Brogdon, who was sent to the bench after the Bucks completed the trade for Eric Bledsoe in early November, has started the last pair of games at the two.
His promotion to the starting lineup is a timely change for the Bucks, especially with a crucial upcoming two-game homestand against the Orlando Magic and defending champion Golden State Warriors.
Brogdon has been outstanding at the BMO Harris Bradley Center as of late.
In his last six home games, the 24-year-old is shooting 54 percent (34 of 63) from the field and 50 percent (10 of 20) from downtown.
Malcolm Brogdon at home, 2017-18
|SINCE DEC. 19||THROUGH DEC. 18|
|FG%||54.0 (34 of 63)||41.8 (56 of 134)|
|3P%||50.0 (10 of 20)||31.0 (13 of 42)|
|FT%||95.0 (19 of 20)||83.3 (20 of 24)|
Brogdon is an important factor on the defensive side of the ball, as well. Milwaukee is 8-1 this season when he collects multiple steals.
