The Rest

In the Journal Sentinel’s recap of Saturday’s game, Center Andrew Bogut called his team out on it’s poor performance. “We’re not playing smart basketball,” Bogut said. “Yeah, maybe we’re playing hard at times. But we’re not reading our scouting reports.” Not reading scouting reports? Yikes.

Looking for optimism? Coach Skiles had some encouraging words with Charles Gardner. Full Disclosure: The bright outlook was before the face-first dive Milwaukee took against Detroit on Saturday.
