Hassan Whiteside put together a monster outing on Wednesday night, roasting the Bucks for 27 points on 10-of-12 from the field and 7-of-9 from the line to go with 13 rebounds and six blocks.
The Bucks don’t have anyone who can really body up big centers and Whiteside was feasting from start to finish in this one. Agent Block is returning first-round value over the last two weeks thanks to his 3.4 swats per contest and the only thing that can hold him back is playing time. Whiteside has seen 25 minutes or more in just six of 11 games since returning from his knee bone bruise, and he’s double-doubled in five of those. He also has at least two blocks in four of those five, so hopefully this huge line will convince the coaching staff to let him play a little more going forward.
