Hope continues to fade: Hawks 96 – Bucks 86

Share Before the series, I assumed the Bucks would be down two games to zero after the first two in Atlanta.  Many targeted game three as the Bucks best opportunity to steal one from the Hawks. Now I’m closer than ever to believing the Bucks will be swept. Feelings of optimism reigned after a hard [...]

Seven  years ago, Mike Bibby was certainly someone worth worrying about in a playoff series.  Now, in 2010, I had written him off as a probable non-factor heading into the Bucks first round series with the [...]

ShareSo he’s still got it. Good to know.  Now if everyone else on the Bucks can get it together, this might be a very different series than the masses (I’m raising my hand especially high on this) expected. It’s fitting that Brandon Jennings donned the cape in game one of the Bucks playoff series.  After all, [...]

ShareMy gut instinct tells me it’s the Hawks. Joe Johnson is a star, right?  Stars win games late, that’s just how the NBA goes.  That’s what I’ve long assumed, that’s what I feel like I’ve witnessed time and time again.  Johnson must be the best late game player either team has, simply because he’s the [...]
