The Central’s best and worst battle it out again: Bucks — Pacers Preview

Share We all thought the Bucks were done making moves last Thursday by 2 pm when the NBA trade deadline passed. As it turns out, they had one more in the works, as they’re planning to buy out the remainder of Caron Butler‘s contract and allow him to sign with a more successful team for the remainder of [...]

ShareThe Bucks moved east from the Western Conference 1980. In six of the next seven years, the 76ers and Bucks met head-to-head in the playoffs — usually after they both racked up 50+ win seasons. In most of the seasons since those clashes — with the 76ers win in the 2001 Eastern Conference Finals being [...]

ShareWill Glenn Robinson and Coolio be at this game? Obviously. It’s Y2K night, which feels a lot more like 90s night, but that’s okay. Whatever it takes to get everyone reminiscing about Glenn Robinson. The oft-criticized, now fondly remembered shooting forward from the very good but not quite great Bucks teams of the late 90s [...]

ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks The Bucks are in nearly the exact same situation as the last time they faced the Nuggets, coming off of a win and seeking their first winning streak of the season. In the last matchup, Denver took advantage of strong performances from Wilson Chandler, JJ Hickson, and Ty Lawson  to best a career [...]

ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks The trade deadline is 3 p.m. CST Thursday. After this game, the Bucks don’t play again until Thursday night. Alas, this could be the last night Ersan Ilyasova pump fakes in a Bucks uniform. This could be the last night Luke Ridnour drills a pull-up jumper in transition in a Bucks [...]

Pelican Makeovers: Bucks vs. Pelicans Preview

ShareI have to admit, I’m a sucker for sports teams that have well-run PR/marketing/media departments. This week I watched the Pelicans couch a rebranding of their terrifying mascot, Pierre, in a story about a tragic accident in a mascot pickup game that resulted in emergency facial reconstructive surgery and couldn’t help but smile to myself. That’s [...]

ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks Brandon Knight. Just watch him. He’s been good for a while now. Larry Sanders too. Other than that, the Bucks aren’t real good. They’ll probably lose this game. But it’ll be interesting to see Knight battle Patrick Beverley and Sanders battle the mighty Dwight Howard.  Also, it’s Beard Night. That’s fun. Maybe we’ll see Miroslav Raduljica get back [...]

ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks They’re riding high off of an emotional victory over New York on Monday night, and we’ll see if the Bucks can retain their buzz against a Nuggets team that’s been blazing along on its own with a seven-game winning streak. The Bucks’ winning effort was led by a burst of [...]

Milwaukee takes on America’s Team: Bucks — Knicks Preview

| February 3, 2014 | 2 Replies

Share(Just kidding. The Knicks aren’t ‘America’s Team’.) What to Watch For: Bucks Larry Drew has constantly adapted his lineups to match what his opponent does. Instead of forcing them to react to him, he reacts to them. Given his lack of roster firepower, perhaps that’s not the worst strategy. In the past two weeks, he [...]
