- Sebastian Pruti at NBAPlaybook breaks down what he deems “the game clinching play” in Sunday’s Bucks-Pacers game. A great look at the inner workings of a play here. If you want to see “the little things” making a big difference, this play has a great screen that helps win the game for Milwaukee.
- The Bulls are sweating.
- In this piece on NBA.com about road records, the Bucks get some love.
Which brings us to Milwaukee. At least as impressive as the Bucks’ six consecutive victories is their 8-2 mark on the road since Feb. 5. The host teams haven’t all been the toughest (Knicks twice, Heat twice — once without Dwyane Wade — Nets, Pacers, Pistons, Wizards), but given where Milwaukee is on its learning curve, this latest road spurt can help immensely later. And maybe even this spring.
Brandon Jennings’ new Under Armour commercial. Unfortunately, he seems to be flying to some destination that doesn’t exist. Milwaukee’s airport code: MKE.
- As good as Jennings’ UA commercial? This post about his hairdo’s from The Score.
- Marc Stein has the Bucks at eight in his newest power rankings. Furthermore, he has them the third highest ranked Eastern Conference team. I’ve quietly been talking about this with those close to me for a week or so — are the Bucks the third best team in the East? It’s at least worth kicking around. Throw out the first three or four months of the season, those Bucks are no more. The Bucks in their current state are more than a pest, they’re closer to a conference final sleeper than one and done playoff team. I’m not saying they can beat Cleveland or Orlando in a seven game series, but I honestly think they can beat Boston or Atlanta.
