Middleton scored 17 points (8-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes during Sunday's 133-114 win over the Hawks. The double-double was only his second of the season. Middleton's been stuck in a bit of an offensive rut in the new year, scoring 20 or more points only once in his last seven games, but even if he isn't providing much ceiling he's had a rock-solid fantasy floor, scoring in double digits in every game but one this season.
Middleton finished with 25 points (8-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a steal across 36 minutes Friday against the Wizards. Middleton stepped up with Giannis Antetokounmpo (hip) out Friday, scoring his most points of the new year. The seventh-year guard is as steady as they come, and is averaging 17.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.2 steals in 31.2 minutes per game on the year.
Middleton scored 19 points (7-8 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding four assists, three steals and a rebound in 22 minutes during Friday's 144-112 win over the Hawks. Eight different Bucks players scored in double digits during a game they dominated from the opening tip, and Middleton wound up tied with Malcolm Brogdon for the team lead despite a much lighter workload than usual. Middleton just missed hitting for 20-plus points for the fourth straight game, but he at least should be well rested for Saturday's big showdown with the Raptors.
Middleton scored 22 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding five rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 121-98 win over the Pistons. It's the third straight game in which Middleton has scored 20 or more points, and the fifth time in his last eight contests. The 27-year-old remains Giannis Antetokounmpo's top wing man, and while his shot attempts and usage have ticked down slightly this season, he's compensated by attempting -- and sinking -- more three-pointers than ever.
Middleton scored 29 points (11-15 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven assists, four rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes during Saturday's 129-115 win over the Nets. The 27-year-old came into the game nursing a quad bruise, but Middleton didn't appear to be hampered by it at all, posting his best point total since the third game of the season. He hasn't been able to match his scoring pace from last year, but Middleton still provides the Bucks with a strong No. 2 option in their offense behind Giannis Antetokounmpo.
