Malcolm Brogdon had himself a night on Monday as he scored a new career high 32 points in the Bucks’ 109-105 win over the Phoenix Suns. Brogdon was on fire, shooting 11-for-14 from the field, 3-for-4 from three, and 7-for-8 from the free throw line in 35 minutes of play. His previous career high was 22 points.
This is the first 30 point game for a Virginia basketball alum since Mike Scott did it back in 2014 with the Atlanta Hawks.
In addition to the points scored, Brodgon added four rebounds, two assists, three steals, and a block.
In pure Malcolm fashion, he hit his new career high on a deep three that gave his team the lead with 7:15 to lay in the fourth quarter.

In addition to his offense, Brogdon played hounding defense on Devin Booker throughout the game, holding him to just 2-for-14 shooting from the field.
All in all, it was an outstanding day for The Prez.

The Milwaukee Bucks (24-22) fired head coach Jason Kidd earlier today and promoted assistant coach Joe Prunty for the time being. Brogdon, who missed the last game due to a family matter, started tonight for the Bucks.
