Share Recap/Box Score/Enemy Over the years, the NBA trade deadline has been blamed for a lot of bad basketball.  A great example of this phenomenon came roughly a year ago, right here in Milwaukee. At that point, the Bucks hadn’t started that second half surge that birthed the Fear the Dear mantra.  They wouldn’t acquire [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy For the Bucks to score consistently and be a good offensive team in general, someone different has to step up every game.  That was the line on the Bucks earlier this season.  Since then, things have kind of went awry and rather than having someone step up every night, more often than not, [...]

Share Enemy: Clipperblog Point Guard Brandon Jennings vs. Baron Davis It’s safe to say Davis cares again.  In seven February games he’s averaging 19 points and 8.6 assists on 44.1% shooting overall and 41.4% shooting from three-point range.  If Jennings put up numbers like that for a month in the next year, I’d eat a [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy Now that is how you make a run towards the eighth seed. If you’re the Memphis Grizzlies. The Milwaukee Bucks though, continued to slip and stumble towards an unsatisfying conclusion to a disappointing season with their 89-86 loss to the Grizzlies in Memphis Friday night.  At least this one offered some variety. Often [...]

ShareIn Philadelphia, the Milwaukee Bucks allowed the Sixers to connect on 57.1% of their shots.   Four games later, at home against Memphis, the Bucks watched the Grizzlies make 51.4% of their shots.  At that point, a defense that sometimes over the past two seasons has seemed impenetrable began to look shaky.  Cracks began forming the [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy The fourth quarter seems like a logical place to start.  After all, the Milwaukee Bucks were right there.  They didn’t have to spend the period playing catchup.  They didn’t dig themselves a hole, they weren’t in trouble.  Coming into the fourth quarter, the Bucks actually held a lead.  It wasn’t large, just a [...]

Share Enemy: Warriors World Point Guard Brandon Jennings vs. Stephen Curry Jennings should be on track to log at least 30 minutes this evening, after seeing his playing time grow from 12 to 21 minutes in his first three games back from injury.  His playing time has been something he’s groused about lately, saying if [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy Playing shot-handed on the road is always a daunting task.  For a Bucks team shuffling in some players returning from injuries while watching others go down, it was far too tall.  Without Andrew Bogut, Keyon Dooling, Drew Gooden or Larry Sanders, with a minute limit on Brandon Jennings and with a hobbled John [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score/Enemy They survived so much.  All the dunking, all the lobs, all the spin moves, all the ferocity and all the violence.  The Bucks survived all that and were right there in the fourth quarter Monday night against the Clippers. This is no small task.  L.A. had won eight straight at home coming into [...]
