Who would’ve thought? After hitting a low point of 14-23 following a woeful 3 game road trip, the Bucks are now riding THEIR OFFENSE in a 6 game, 7 out of 8 winning stretch. The team has skyrocketed to 4th in the league in assists and 7th in the league in points per game. In their final 21 games of the regular season, they only play 9 games against teams with winning records. Remember that this offensive outburst started before the Andrew Bogut trade, but is now being perpetuated by it (so far).

Gery Woelfel dives deep into the Bogut trade and reasoning why the Bucks finally let go of the big man.
The Golden State Warriors retired Chris Mullin’s jersey Monday night, but you wouldn’t have known it based on the crowd in Oakland. Fans booed Warriors owner Joe Lacob in disapproval of the Bogut/Ellis deal.
Speaking of the Bogut/Ellis deal, Charles Gardner at JSOnline is reporting that the Bucks insisted that Ekpe Udoh be included in the trade if the Warriors wanted Bogut.
Drew Gooden was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week one week after Ersan Ilyasova earned the title. That’s the first time the team has strung together back-to-back POTW awards since Mike Redd/Mo Williams donned Bucks’ jerseys. Congrats Gents!
