Michael Malone Shares Classy Message After Incredible Career Milestone At The Expense Of Doc Rivers’ Milwaukee Bucks Coaching Debut.

Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone celebrated a significant career milestone with his 400th win at the helm, marking an impressive achievement. The triumph, however, came at the expense of Doc Rivers’ debut as head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks, with the reigning NBA champions securing a 113-107 victory over the Central Division squad in Mile High City.

Reflecting on this accomplishment, Malone expressed gratitude, acknowledging the support from the Kroenkes and emphasizing his good fortune in coaching exceptional players like Jokic, Jamal, MPJ, Nelson, and Beasley.

Malone speaking on win in Denver: “It means I’ve been here a long time. I think about Kroenkes believing in me and still believing in me. I think about how lucky I am to coach the players who have been here. Jokic, Jamal, and MPJ. Guys in the past like Nelson, Beasley… great players.”

In a matchup where the Milwaukee Bucks succumbed to the Nuggets in Doc Rivers’ coaching debut, Denver relied on the dynamic duo of Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. Murray showcased his prowess, contributing 35 points on an efficient 13/22 shooting, complemented by five assists. Meanwhile, Jokic recorded another casual triple-double, tallying 25 points, 16 rebounds, and 12 assists.

Milwaukee Bucks, Doc Rivers

Despite Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 29-point performance and Brook Lopez’s 19 points for the Bucks, Damian Lillard’s off-night with 18 points on 5/13 shooting impacted Milwaukee’s performance. Looking ahead, the Bucks aim to bounce back in their upcoming road game against the Portland Trail Blazers, where Doc Rivers seeks his first win as the new head coach of Milwaukee.
