In a way, this past week can be considered Pat Connaughton's real first week of the season. Before, he still was working his way back into game shape, and his results definitely reflected that. Now, we can talk about things that are more normal for the Milwaukee Bucks guard.
Connaughton began with his best scoring game of the week, totaling 10 points to help beat the New York Knicks on Nov. 30 at Madison Square Garden despite shooting only 4 of 13 from the field. He took a slight step back with eight points in a Dec. 2 home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, although he also had two assists. He concluded the week with nine points and five rebounds the next night in a road win over the Charlotte Hornets.
For these three games, Connaughton averaged a steady 9.0 points a game and made an even third of his shots. All that's left to say is Pat's back.
