By the time the pair checked out of the game with the Bucks trailing, 108-87, with 7 minutes, 46 seconds to go in the game, the rest of the team had combined to add 40 points to their 47. Milwaukee didn’t drill down into the Denver lead after that, scoring just four points over the next few minutes. Trailing, 112-91, with 4:56 to go, the Bucks subbed in the bench.

The Bucks have not had to play Adams (currently in the league’s health and safety protocol) or Diakite (currently in the G League) significant minutes, but the rule change could greatly benefit Marquette alumnus Juan Toscano-Anderson, who is averaging over 20 minutes per game for Golden State. He had already played in 21 games heading into Tuesday. I think generally it’s a good thing,” Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said.
