    Ersan is beginning to get his minutes; 3, 14 and 22 mins in the last 3 games, respectively. Promising increase. His shooting is not good at the moment, but he's slowly becoming a part of the rotation.

    From NBA's official rookie notes:
    Ersan Ilyasova hit a big three and guarded Joe Johnson (successfully) down the stretch of a two-point win in Atlanta.

    Ersan was in the starting five today in the loss against Indiana, 100-102.

    12 points (5-6 fg, 2-2 3pt), 2 rebs, 2 steals in 24 minutes.

    Apparently I'm enthusiastic about this guy.

    Smile What happened vs the Suns?

    We were treated to the live match on espn and although I loved the game, I felt that Ersan looked a bit lost. I realise that the NBA is completely different to the kind of games I have been used to in Europe and to watching at the WC this summer but he seemed nervous to me. Perhaps this is because he is a rookie and I haven't seen any of his other games with the Bucks so perhaps someone can fill me in on that.

    BTW, as the people on the Engin/NC thread know, my family and I were incredibly lucky to meet the Turkish NT this summer so here is a picture of Ersan with my son and one with his teammates.

    I'm still convinced that Ersan type of game will fit in euroleague more then in the N.B.A. varstile, alot of talent but still need to fit in nba position(3) and lacks the quikness of SF's in the league.

    I agree he could be more succesful in Euroleague, but he's always wanted to play in NBA, so I'd like to see him achieve his goals there. His defense is very good, and they like him mainly for this reason. But he needs to display his versatile game, which I couldn't witness so far unfortunately.

    Bucks are in their top form these days and they're on a 6-game winning streak. Injured players are now ok, and they re-assumed their roles on the team, therefore Ersan's minutes have been reduced.

    After playing a total of only 24 minutes in the last 16 games, Ilyasova played 24 minutes and scored a career-high 15 points in a loss against the Nuggets. Those are his first significant numbers after disappointing performances as a starter in late november. Note that Redd, Simmons and Villanueva DNP in Denver.

    Ersan played a very good game tonight against 76ers. He was very active in every part of court in the 22 minutes he was given.

    What I liked most about him was that he moved very well, managed to get open, and wanted the ball (though Bucks players thought there were 4 of them on court). He clapped his hands, even waved his arms in one occasion for about 5 secs, but Patterson preferred getting blocked twice instead of passing to wide open Ersan. And huge congratulations to his coach, Stotts, who replaced him with D. Noel who went 0-4 before fouled out in the minutes 76ers broke away.

    Ersan's stats:
    22 mins, 9 pts (4-5 fg, 1-1 ft), 4 rebs, 2 as, 2 blks

    He's definately a nba player. Saw him yesterday and is already outperforming other players in his draft like Martell Webster. Kudos to the Bucks management.
    Alrighty then! Take care now, bye bye then.

    Default The kid's looking good .......

    Here is an article that was on their website. It certainly sounds as though the injuries to his teammates have worked in his favour and he is settling into a good rhythm. Here's to the same progress for the rest of the season and for the NT in the summer.

    Actually we were expecting that he will play in starting five and get more minutes when he returned to Bucks. I think he has more potential than other Turkish NBA players Hedo Turkoglu and Mehmet Okur. If he continues to play good like that, he can be in starting five and get more minutes. If he can't get more minutes, I think he can leave from Bucks.

    He's played well in the last eight games starting the last four. Ilyasova has averaged 13.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and shooting 43.3% from three. The Milwaukee Bucks have won 6 of 8 games.
