Share For some reason, Brandon Jennings has been a terrible player in February. It’s been a pretty consistent thread throughout his three seasons. 2011-12: 15.1 points, 5.2 assists on 33.6 FG% and 26.8 3FG% 2010-11: 11.4 points, 3.9 assists on 34 FG% and 24 3FG% 2009-10:  10.7 points, 5.5 assists on 30.7 FG% and 31.1 [...]

ShareEverything was set up perfectly. This would be the first year since 2004 that the Milwaukee Bucks would have an All-Star. Derrick Rose has been out all season. The Celtics have struggled, the Sixers have struggled and the Cavs have been the Cavs. Opposing point guards are playing on bad teams and in tiebreaker scenarios, [...]

ShareIt seems like it’s been forever, at least a few weeks if not a month, since everyone last talked about how good Larry Sanders was. Let us not let this tragedy carry out for another day. “Larry’s a young guy. I’m probably not playing him enough,” Jim Boylan said with a chuckle when I asked [...]

ShareThrough seven games under rest of the season coach Jim Boylan, the Milwaukee Bucks have gone 5-2 and impressively finished a four game road trip a little bit to the East and a lot of bit to the West at 3-1. After losing their last four games under ex-coach Scott Skiles, it’s been a refreshing [...]

Buying or selling on the Milwaukee Bucks roster a third of the way through the season

ShareWe’re about a third of the way through the season. The trading deadline is just over a month and a half away. Today, ESPN’s 5-on-5 was about five teams that could be buyers or sellers. The Bucks were one of the teams. I predicted they’d be buyers based on the organizations patterns over the past [...]

ShareAfter 23 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets, Larry Sanders has now played 640 minutes on the season. That’s significant because the third year pro played only 643 minutes in 52 games in last year’s lockout shortened 2011-12 season. So through virtually the same number of minutes, how is Sanders doing this year? In a couple [...]

The boring demands of being a good defensive team

| December 27, 2012 | 5 Replies

ShareThe Milwaukee Bucks have largely been a pretty good defensive team this season. And good defense is a practice in patience and boredom, more or less. That’s probably what makes it so elusive. Being in the right places, rotating crisply and pushing ball handlers to places where they have fewer options – not many people [...]

ShareThe Milwaukee Bucks were riddled with injuries as they stepped on the court to face the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. Larry Sanders had caught some sort of illness. Ekpe Udoh was nursing a sore wrist he’d fallen onto Sunday. Mike Dunleavy’s leg couldn’t make a few crucial movements without too much soreness and Beno Udrih’s [...]
