Share With 3:42 left in the second quarter, John Salmons hit a jumper. In the next 12:03 of basketball time, and what seemed like eternity in real time, Milwaukee saw one more basket, a Carlos Delfino made layup, in Friday night’s game six loss.

Share Isn’t it funny how a matter of moments can alter the perception of one shot? Along with many others that joined me on Wednesday evening’s Daily Dime Live, I thought Josh Smith had finished off the Bucks with just over four minutes to go Wednesday night.  Smith faded a little bit from the top [...]
