Ilyasova ended with 17 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 21 minutes during Friday's 125-103 victory over Toronto. Despite another impressive performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo, it was the bench unit that shone during the Bucks easy Game 2 victory over the Raptors. Ilyasova himself had his best game of the playoffs, dropping 17 points in just 21 minutes. He nailed two triples as well taking a number of charges, something he is very adept at doing. The Bucks run nine players deep on most nights and their ability to garner production from a range of sources certainly gives them a foot up on their opponents.
Ilyasova will start in Wednesday's regular season finale against the Thunder. With the Bucks resting a number of players in their final game of the regular season, Ilyasova will get the start in the frontcourt alongside D.J. Wilson. Look for Ilyasova to get plenty of minutes Wednesday as a result.
Ilyasova finished with 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and a steal over 25 minutes in the Bucks' loss to the Nets on Saturday. Ilyasova finished with a serviceable stat line in Saturday's loss. He has played a limited role for the Bucks this season, averaging just 6.8 points and 4.4 rebounds in 18.2 minutes per game. His upside is very limited.
Ilyasova (nose) will play Saturday against the Nets, according to freelance reporter Kane Pitman. Despite breaking his nose during the Bucks' previous game, Ilyasova will take the court Saturday. It's possible he sees more run with Giannis Antetokounmpo (calf) being ruled out.
Ilyasova is probable for Saturday's game against the Nets due to a nasal fracture. Despite the nasal fracture, the expectation is that Ilyasova will take the court for the Bucks in what is the team's third-to-last game of the season. Across his past six appearances, he's averaging 5.7 points and 3.8 rebounds in 21.2 minutes.
