Two of the Milwaukee Bucks’ starters have been named the best at their position on the defensive end of the floor.
Both forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and guard Eric Bledsoe have earned nods on the All-NBA defensive first team.
They helped Milwaukee reach the league’s No. 1 defensive ranking and the best defensive field goal percentage, allowing teams to only make 43.3 percent from the field.
It’s the third time in the 51 years of the Bucks that two team members have made the All-Defensive first team.
For both Antetokounmpo and Bledsoe, this is their first all-defensive team nod.
Antetokounmpo is also a finalist for NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
