DiVincenzo (coach's decision) didn't see the court Monday in the Bucks' 109-95 loss to the Nuggets in what amounted to a rest day. Even after its loss and a Toronto win, Milwaukee still holds a six-and-a-half-game lead for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, so coach Mike Budenholzer decided to withhold several key players for rest purposes in the second half of a back-to-back set. Expect DiVincenzo to suit up when the Bucks return to action Thursday against the Celtics, and the second-year player could be in store for more elevated usage than normal in the event superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is sidelined for a third straight game.
DiVincenzo contributed 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Suns. DiVincenzo has looked impressive over his previous three outings. He's averaged 15.7 points, 5.0 boards, 3.3 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks per game, while shooting 56.8 percent from the field in that time span. Playing at a top-75 level recently, and producing standard-league value on the season, the 23-year old could be in for a solid finish to the season as the Bucks look to hold onto the number-one seed in the Eastern Conference.
DiVincenzo scored 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt), while tacking on four rebounds, three assists and a block in 25 minutes Friday during the Bucks' 113-103 loss to the Lakers. DiVincenzo is in the midst of a strong stretch, especially in the absence of George Hill (groin). The second-year Villanova product was behind only Giannis Antetokounmpo in points for Milwaukee, and supplied a play of the night by swatting LeBron James. Hill is expected back immediately, but DiVincenzo remains worth monitoring.
DiVincenzo delivered 19 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 119-100 win over the Pacers. DiVincenzo provided a dominant performance, scoring more points than the rest of Milwaukee's reserves combined. Moreover, DiVincenzo produced an incredibly well-rounded stat line, and he'll look to keep it rolling during Friday's matchup versus the Lakers.
DiVincenzo finished with 11 points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FG), five boards, three assists, and one block in 27 minutes of a 105-89 loss to the Heat on Monday. This was a bounce-back effort after he'd failed to reach double-figure scoring in his last three games. The second-year man out of Villanova has carved out a nice role for himself in the Bucks' dynamic offense, and even when he's not scoring, DiVincenzo has managed to put up solid numbers across the box score.
