He also shot 40.2 percent from three, nailed 1.7 three-pointers a game and hit a perfect 32-of-32 free throw attempts. During a Nov. 6 home win over the Knicks, Snell generated a season-high 24 points via a perfect 9-for-9 from the field, which included a season-high six three-pointers. On Jan. 18, the versatile wing block a career-best three shots and added eight points during a win at Atlanta.

In the 2018-19 season, Tony Snell transitioned to a bench role after starting all but 16 of the games in which he played during his first two campaigns with Milwaukee. Despite the reduction in playing time, the wingman's numbers held steady as his per-game contributions -- 6.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 threes -- were in line with his production in 2017-18. A peek at his advanced stats suggests that coming off the bench suited Snell just fine, as his 12.3 points per 36 minutes and 10.7 Player Efficiency Rating were the highest marks of his career. Snell's best offensive stretch came during a three-game span in mid-December when he averaged 13.3 points on 15-of-20 shooting -- including 8-of-12 from deep -- in a trio of Bucks wins.

The sharpshooter suffered a sprained left ankle in late March that sidelined him for the remainder of the regular season and the first two games of the playoffs. When he returned midway through Milwaukee's first-round series against Detroit, he saw limited playing time.2017
