When Bucks forward Nikola Mirotic met with the media Monday at the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Toronto, he did so while wearing a recently-released Bucks "Bench Mob" T-shirt. Malcolm Brogdon was a staple in the starting lineup until suffering a plantar fascia tear in his right foot on March 15. In three games during the Eastern Conference finals against the Toronto Raptors, Brogdon has averaged 16.3 points on 50% shooting, including 45% from three-point range, along with 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 29.6 minutes per game. On Sunday, Brogdon and fellow backup guard George Hill were the main reasons why the Bucks stayed in the game as long as they did before ultimately falling in double overtime.
