Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped 42 points on Monday night in a Milwaukee Bucks 142-129 win over the Washington Wizards.
The loss dropped the Wizards to 2-11 on the season, leading to calls of more playing time for La Crosse native Johnny Davis, who was the 10th overall pick two drafts ago.
Davis played just six minutes Monday night, getting a rebound and an assist. The second-year guard didn’t take a shot.
Davis has been benched this season for journeymen like Landry Shame and Delon Wright.
Davis, in his second year, played 16 minutes in the season-opener but has only see that total decrease since.
The 6-foot-4 guard showed flashes at the end of last season, when he scored in double-figures in the final six contests, including back-to-back games with 20 points.
The Wizards looked to be in full rebuild mode at that time, shutting down veteran Bradley Beal, then trading him to the Phoenix Suns. Still, Davis sits on the sidelines,
