This is the last Buck Hits post of 2012. What fun we’ve had! Currently, the Milwaukee Bucks are 15-12. They’re fifth in the Eastern Conference and a half game behind the Indiana Pacers for first place in the Central Division.

Beno Udrih is healthy again and Tobias Harris is probable for tonight’s game against the Miami Heat. In the team’s last game, they scored 100+ points for the first time since December 7. Let’s think postively. It’s a new year! 2013! Huzahh! Here’s your recap of the past week.

Coverage

On Thursday, Ian Thomsen of Sports Illustrated wrote a great feature about Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. The LRMAM stuff starts on page 3 and it offers background on the forward’s childhood as a prince in Cameroon and how his basketball career began. It’s a fun read.

Earlier this week, Alex Boeder of Bucks.com offered his holiday wish list for the Milwaukee Bucks. Items included on his list are better shooting percentages from the backcourt, less injuries and a stronger defense of the home court. This article is full of interesting stats and well worth the time.

This video of Doron Lamb and Mbah a Moute playing password is more than a week old but whatever. It’s perfect. I could (and will) forever watch Mbah a Moute acting like a shark.

Steve von Horn of Brew Hoop got all inquisitive on Thursday as he looked into the idea that the Bucks have taken advantage of injury-riddled teams. The conclusion? Not really. The Bucks are only 8-7 when one of the opposition’s top-3 players is out.

Bucksketball now has a forum! Go over there, sign up and post, post, post. It’s looking like it will be a very fun place to talk about the Bucks.

And finally, Thursday night Michael Redd was an $800 answer on Jeopardy!. Hint: the question is not “what are knee injuries?”

    For Jeopardy … is that a Milwaukee Bucks record? What is a basket?

    That was sarcasm, in case you didn’t recognize that.

    A lot of fun posts here Jon. Got a little busy over holiday, but glad that I came back to peruse.

    Happy New Year! Bucks 2013!
