Milwaukee Bucks did not lose their shot-blocking ability?

(WNFL) - The Milwaukee Bucks did not lose their shot-blocking ability when Larry Sanders broke his right thumb in a nightclub brawl in early November.  Replacement John Henson is starting to come into his own as a key shot rejecter.  Henson, a second-year pro, averages two-point-one blocks per game.  That’s the fourth-highest in the league.  Anthony Davis is the leader with three-point-six blocks a night.  Henson had six blocks on Tuesday night in a Milwaukee victory at Chicago, and coach Larry Drew said Henson was in a position to block one-or-two more shots.  Drew said he wants Henson to be relentless around the basket every time down the floor, and not relax on any possessions.  Drew said shot-blocking is a matter of timing, and Henson’s got it down.  Last season, Sanders had 10 blocks in Minnesota as part of a triple-double – and observers say Henson has the chance to do the same.
