Khris Middleton scored 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Hornets, adding six assists, five boards, three steals, four 3-pointers and three turnovers over 37 minutes.
Middleton had a very costly turnover during the closing minutes of the game, that essentially was the deciding factor in Milwaukee's loss, but statistically he was solid. Middleton has been getting it done for the Bucks over his last four outings, averaging 17.8 points, 5.0 assists, 3.5 three-pointers, 2.0 steals and just 1.5 turnovers per game which translates to second-round value. Middleton will look to keep his momentum going on Monday with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets. Nov 29 - 5:46 PM

Khris Middleton scored 15 points against the Magic on Friday with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's starting to pick it up from the outside and has made 10-of-15 (66.7 percent) from deep in his last three. The Bucks are getting decent offensive production on the wings, but not much else. Middleton is trending up now.
Nov 27 - 9:36 PM

Khris Middleton matched his season-high 21 points against the Kings on Wednesday with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

His five treys and six dimes were both season highs. Middleton is starting to come around and has made 7-of-10 from deep in his last two. The buy low window is closing fast and maybe cutting down Michael Carter-Williams' minutes will help him, too.
Nov 25 - 11:09 PM

Khris Middleton made 5-of-7 from the field for 16 points against the Pistons on Monday, adding three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

It's one of two very efficient games on the season for Middleton. He isn't getting a ton of shots in the offense and hasn't hit more than two treys in any of his last five games, averaging 12.8 points, 2.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys. Middleton's arrow is pointing up, though.
Nov 24 - 1:17 AM

Khris Middleton scored eight points on 3-of-11 from the field against the Pacers on Saturday, adding two rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Bucks just aren't using him correctly right now. Before tonight, only 40.4 percent of his plays have been spot-up or off-screen plays, which should probably be over 50 after his breakout 2014-15. Whatever the case, expect Middleton to adapt to his SG role and improve on his current eight-round value on the season.
Nov 21 - 9:25 PM

Khris Middleton didn't make any 3-pointers during a 115-100 loss to the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 15 points with one rebound, four assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

Every other player in the starting five is pretty much useless as a scorer with a jumper from beyond 16 feet, so Middleton really needs to start heating up. He still has a nice buy-low window and the return of Jabari Parker shouldn't hurt him much.
Nov 19 - 11:58 PM

Jason Kidd said that the Bucks were forced to choose between Khris Middleton and Brandon Knight last season as both players were in a contract year.

"I wouldn't say we gave up a lot," Kidd said regarding sending away Knight in a trade that netted them Michael Carter-Williams. "He [Knight] was having a great season, and he's having a great season this year. But it wasn't we gave up Brandon. We had a decision to make between our backcourt." The Bucks weren't interested in giving Knight a max contract, and sending him away gave them enough cap space to sign Greg Monroe during free agency. While Knight has gotten off to a hot start, Middleton has struggled with averages of 13.9 points, 1.9 three-pointers and 1.2 steals per game on 37.5 percent shooting. He's a decent buy low candidate.

Khris Middleton scored 14 points with two rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Wizards on Tuesday.

He was in a really bad slump this month before this one, making just 36.8 percent from the field in his previous eight games. Specifically, Middleton has been awful on his two-point shots this month, making just 34.8 percent of those. He's starting to trend up a bit.
Nov 17 - 9:43 PM

Khris Middleton played 42 minute against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 13 points, one rebound, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers.

Here comes Middleton, averaging 14.8 points, 4.0 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.4 treys over his last five. He is struggling with his shot at just 37 percent on the season, but he's actually hot from beyond the arc. He'll likely be more of just a 3-point guy once Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) comes back. He still has a bit of a buy-low window, too.
Nov 12 - 12:57 AM

Khris Middleton flirted with a triple-double in the Bucks' 94-86 win over the Nets on Saturday, scoring 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting (3-of-3 3PTs, 3-of-5 FTs) with nine rebounds, seven assists and one steal.

Middleton was a rock solid buy low candidate after a slow start but he has caught fire lately so that window is shut. He'll continue to get more ball-handling responsibilities while Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) is out.
Nov 8 - 7:27 AM

Khris Middleton scored a season-high 21 points on 7-of-20 from the field during a 91-87 win over the 76ers on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He also hit a big three late to help get Milwaukee this very close win. Middleton didn't crack a usage rate of 22 in any of his first four games, but he put up a season-high 29.2 tonight -- this could be due to no Michael Carter-Williams. Whatever the case, expect Middleton to start heating up.
Nov 5 - 12:46 AM

Khris Middleton scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in Monday's road win over the Nets.

Middleton should be in this ballpark on most nights and he's currently headed toward a mid-round valuation.
Nov 3 - 12:22 AM

Khris Middleton scored just eight points with two rebounds and two turnovers on Sunday.

He was 3-of-10 from the field, had five fouls and played just 29 minutes. Middleton's transition to being more of a shooting guard is not off to a great start, making just 33.3 percent from the field. Middleton is just 5-of-19 from the mid-range, so attacking a little more could help.
Nov 1 - 9:52 PM

Khris Middleton hit 6-of-14 shots (including a three) for 18 points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal in Friday's home loss to the Wizards.

Nobody is sleeping on the Bucks this year and they're 0-2 to start the season. Middleton was mostly slow in the opener, but his year-to-year stats are as consistent as they come and hopefully the Bucks get the memo on letting him unload from deep.
Oct 31 - 1:47 AM

Khris Middleton played 35 minutes on Wednesday but didn't fare well, shooting 4-of-15 from the field for 11 points, two rebounds and zero assists, steals or blocks.

Middleton hit three 3-pointers and owners can at least take solace in the fact that he wasn't shy offensively. The Bucks were a disaster on both ends of the court tonight and will look to regroup vs. the visiting Wizards on Thursday.
