Brockman Ruins Things. They All Ruin Things. Magic 94 – Bucks 85

Milwaukee Bucks 85 Final
Recap | Box Score
94 Orlando Magic
Jon Leuer, F 7 MIN | 0-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 PTS | -3

The Jon Leuer experience came to a grinding halt because of foul trouble. What a sad day for Wisconsin. A sad day for America. Once Leuer shows Skiles that he can play adequate defense without fouling then his playing time will be limitless. The sooner the better. I’ve had a really bad headache all day and Jon Brockman’s 17 minutes only exacerbated my problem.

Shaun Livingston, PG 29 MIN | 5-13 FG | 3-4 FT | 3 REB | 3 AST | 14 PTS | -15

Tonight’s loss was to the Magic was both similar and different than the last loss to the Magic. Both losses came after the Bucks held a large lead in the fourth. In the first one, the Magic buried the Bucks with a three point barrage. This time the Bucks just couldn’t convert in the paint. There was no better example of this than the many layups Livingston had to alter to get the ball above Dwight Howard’s reach.

Brandon Jennings, PG 31 MIN | 4-20 FG | 4-5 FT | 4 REB | 5 AST | 14 PTS | -14

The effort and energy seem to be back. Also back: the long twos and generally bad shot selection.

Stephen Jackson, SG 12 MIN | 1-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 2 PTS | -10

Part of being professional is saying the right things. Stephen Jackson does that more or less in his Stephen Jackson way which is to say not at all. The other part of being a professional is doing the right things. Playing a mediocre, underwhelming 10-20 minutes every game is not exactly that.

Jon Brockman, F 17 MIN | 0-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 0 PTS | -25

Ugh.

Tobias Harris, F 16 MIN | 3-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 8 PTS | +8

Harris is capable of averaging 20 points or more if he ever gets consistent, heavy minutes. His penchant for drawing fouls, efficiency and willingness to play in the post would have a great asset late in the game especially after Dwight Howard’s fifth foul.

  1. This will be my last post until Boguie comes back(if he comes back this season), because I think my opinions are becoming redundant.. BJen and SJax were combined for 5-26 and 2-11 from 3pt.. As usual the rest of the team was efficient (44%) yet overmatched.. I am excited at the possibility of a future front court of Harris, Leuer, and Bogut.. And I think Bjen had 14 points

    Why don’t Brockman try some of those trick shots in a game, it can’t get any worse for him…

  3. why does brockman even play? he shouldnt even be touching the court and we’ve got him out there guarding the best center in the NBA and he’s 6-7…as for Jennings I’ve lost all hope, he’s done trying and caring and is just as pathetic as his boyfriend Jackson at this point

  4. it is kind of amusing that Jon Brockman can hit a shot from the upper deck in the Bradley Center but not a 12 footer…

  5. at one point with injuries happening to Gooden, Tobias and Maybe LRMAM? the injured egos of Jack and possibly Brandon Jennings and big guys getting in foul trouble Sanders, Leuer, Ersan I thought the Bucks may have had to suit up Joe Wolf to guard Dwight Howard, they went with Brockman instead tho.

    Then for a second I thought about what would happen if Skiles was runnin the point?….how about this lineup….Skiles, Livingston, Delfino, Ersan, Leuer/Sanders wit Beno, Dunleavy and Joe Wolf comin off the bench? u gotta admit thatd be damn entertaining to watch

    @jeremyschmidt Have you heard any insider word if the the missed game by Luc was discipline or injury? i read one thing out of Orlando that said it was “effort-based.” Even if, I like that Skiles holds players accountable BUT as I have said before you have to play your studs (sad, we have to say he’s one of them on here) in a market like Milwaukee.

    @jeremyschmidt I don’t think Skiles has control over this team anymore, among other things going wrong, it starts with leadership & I think Skiles has lost it.
