If you didn’t know who Malcolm Brogdon is, it’s about time you found out.
In last night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Milwaukee Bucks’ rookie put himself on the map by posterizing his opponent’s two best players. Brogdon started with a nasty blow-by dunk over Kyrie Irving in the 1st quarter, then put LeBron James on his poster in the 3rd quarter; when he blew by the King to deliver a reverse slam.

The Bucks were a facing a deficit both times that Brogdon delivered his poster dunks over Irving and James. They were able to ultimately push the game to overtime, but couldn’t come away with a victory on their own home floor, losing 114-108.
Brogdon had another solid night on both ends of the floor, finishing with 6 points on 3-6 shooting, to go along with his 5 assists and a steal in around 19 minutes of action. With Khris Middleton not expected to be at full health till next season, Brogdon should continue to get solid minutes off the bench because of his ability to also play high-level defence.
The Cavaliers, and the rest of the league, now know who Brogdon is, and will be ready to respect his game when they get set to take on the Bucks once again tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST.
