Khris Middleton scored 11 points with 11 rebounds on just 4-of-12 shooting as the Bucks beat the Raptors in Game 1 on Wednesday.
He converted just one of his six attempts from beyond the arc, but the one he made was late in the fourth quarter in a key moment. It is a great sign that the Bucks were able to win on a night where Middleton and Eric Bledsoe could not buy a bucket. Look for Middleton to bounce back in Game 2 as the Bucks look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead.

Khris Middleton finished Wednesday's closeout win over Boston with 19 points (5-of-15 shooting), eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in a team-high 34 minutes.
Though he still shot poorly, Middleton had a very good game, and was essential to Milwaukee's dominance over Boston's starting five. Middleton will have his hands full guarding the talented wings of either team the Bucks could face in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Khris Middleton shot poorly in Monday's Game 4, going 4-for-19 from the field (including 2-for-10 from three) for 13 points and adding three rebounds, seven assists and a steal.
Middleton did hit all three of his freebies. He's been on fire for most of the series, so this is just a hiccup in which the Bucks won anyway. Expect him to come out firing again with better results as the Bucks return home for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Khris Middleton scored 20 points to go with three 3s, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and five turnovers in Friday's Game 3 victory over the Celtics.
Middleton was key for the Bucks, especially on isolation plays; per Second Spectrum analytics, he was the top-ranked player in the league in points per direct ISO during the 2018-19 season. He has been ultra-dependable during the playoffs, averaging an even 20 points on almost 48 percent from the field while landing at fifth-overall with 3.4 treys per game.

Khris Middleton was on fire in Tuesday's 123-102 win over the Cetlics, scoring 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist and playoff career-high seven 3-pointers.
Middleton is finally shooting the way we expected him to all season and he's stepped up when the Bucks needed him to. He went 7-for-10 from distance tonight and a lot of those triples were heavily guarded and off the dribble. If he's going to play like this it makes life much easier for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who also had a big night.

Khris Middleton was able to corral 16 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three 3-poitners as the Bucks dropped Game 1 on Sunday.
Middleton was one of the few Bucks to get anything going, though Boston is going to live with him taking contested jumpers as long as they can shut down Giannis Antetokounmpo. After seeing his role dialed back throughout the regular season, perhaps Milwaukee will need Middleton to take more responsibility as defenses lock in on the Bucks' top option.

Khris Middleton had 18 points (5-of-11 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes as the Bucks completed their sweep of the Pistons on Monday night.
Middleton had a good series, averaging 19.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.8 threes. The Bucks will likely need him to keep it up as the competition heats up in Round 2 vs. the Celtics.

Khris Middleton scored 20 points on 7-of-14 from the field and added nine rebounds, four assists, a steal and three treys on 3-of-6 from behind the arc on Saturday night against the Pistons.
Middleton was the leading scorer in tonight's matchup as the Bucks get another easy win over the Pistons who had the services of Blake Griffin tonight. Even with Griffin back on the court, Middleton and company didn't care and scored in every way possible and are now one win away from making it into the second round.

Khris Middleton played well in the Bucks' Game 2 win against the Pistons, finishing with 24 points, eight assists, five rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
Middleton joined Giannis and Eric Bledsoe as the third Bucks player to score over 20 points in this game. He's going to be essential to Milwaukee's championship aspirations, as he and Bledsoe will likely continue taking turns getting buckets as the second option in the offense.

Khris Middleton scored 14 points on 5-of-13 from the field and added five rebounds, four assists and four treys on 4-of-7 from behind the arc on Sunday night against the Pistons.
Middleton had these types of lines all season and continues to play Robin to Giannis' Batman. The Bucks came out guns blazing in this one and Middleton will be looking to get going early in Game 2 as well.

Khris Middleton put up 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting in 17 minutes in a loss to the Thunder on Wednesday in the last game of the season.
This season was the lowest value (top-70 in 9-cat formats) that Middleton has had since the 2013-2014 season (top-110 in 9-cat formats). The regression was due in large part to how good the Bucks are and how little was really needed from Middleton compared to past seasons. He still averaged 18.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists with 2.3 triples per game on 44.1-percent shooting. Middleton could potentially creep back into the top-50 value for next season, but expect middle-round value at the very least from the HB favorite.

Khris Middleton had a solid outing vs. the Hawks on Sunday, delivering 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, two triples and one blocked shot.
Middleton has been on a bit of a hot streak lately, scoring 20 points or more in three straight games. Sadly, it's a case of too little, too late for Middleton owners as K-Mid has been one of bigger disappointments in fantasy this season, at least relative to his past body of work. Eric Bledsoe was quiet tonight with just eight points (4-of-10 shooting), five rebounds, five assists and two steals to his name.

Khris Middleton was efficient with his shot on Saturday against the Nets, scoring 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting while adding four rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.
Middleton is a top-95 player in the past five games he has played, posting averages of 23.0 points on 45.5 percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.2 3-pointers. Don't be surprised if the team decides to rest him again as the playoffs come closer by the day.

Khris Middleton will play on Saturday against the Nets but will have his minutes monitored.
This makes sense as the Bucks are already banged up and have secured home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Even with his minutes limited, Middleton may be able to see enough usage – with Giannis Antetokounmpo out – to put up a solid game. Don't be surprised if we see Middleton sit one more game before the playoffs.

Khris Middleton struggled with his shot on Thursday, scoring 22 points on 7-of-18 shooting while adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Middleton had an opportunity to step up with Eric Bledsoe (ejected) getting tossed early, but he failed to do much with it. We could chalk it up as some groin soreness, but it looks like Middleton has struggled to find any sense of lasting rhythm throughout the season and even with the Bucks shorthanded, his shooting still hasn't reached last year's efficiency.
