ORLANDO — As the Bucks try to compete for a title, they continue to think about the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha.

"I think this is why, you know, we have so many people outraged over the country," Khris Middleton said. "You know, the man was shot 7 times at point-blank range in the back. I mean, it doesn't get, you know, any sicker than that."

Milwaukee Bucks' George Hill had the strongest message of all the players. Saying he shouldn't be in Orlando. He should be in Kenosha.

"First of all, we shouldn't have even came to this damn place, to be honest," George Hill said. "I think coming here just took all the focal points off of what the issues are. But, we're here. So, it is what it is. You know. We can't do anything from right here. But I think, definitely when this all settles, you know, some things need to be done. I think this world has to change. I think our police department has to change."

In the meantime, the Bucks try to finish off the Magic in Orlando on Wednesday afternoon.
