MILWAUKEE Cedi Osman scored 23 points, Darius Garland had 22 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers extended their winning streak to six games, beating the short-handed Milwaukee Bucks 119-90 on Saturday night. ”
WORK IN PROGRESS
Cousins started for the second straight night and saw 27 minutes of action, his highest total since joining the Bucks last month and the most playing time he’s seen since February when he played 37 minutes for Houston in a loss to the 76ers.
He’s still trying to get acclimated to his new team while also trying to get his body back into game shape after not taking part in training camp or the first few months of the season, and the Bucks’ recent schedule – they’ve played 11 games in 18 days since Cousins signed on Nov. 30 – hasn’t exactly been ideal.
In nine games for the Bucks, Cousins is averaging 5.0 points on 37.1% shooting with 4.3 rebounds but he expects those numbers to improve as his playing time increases and he becomes more familiar with his teammates.
