The Internet, for as large and free (for now) as it is, lacks Bucks coverage when the team is struggling. Sure, Brandon Jennings is shooting 45% from the field a fifth of the way through the season. But no one wants to talk upside when you’ve lost 8 of your last 10 and 3 straight. In fact, no one wants to talk Bucks at all. Today’s Buck Hits are devoid of coverage, much like last night’s transition defense.
