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 [...]

Share Check out the reaction by the Bucks bench. Priceless. If it hadn’t been done before, and it’s probably foolish that it wasn’t, the word “can’t” was officially removed from the dictionary on the Milwaukee Bucks 2009-10 season. It’s uses were once prevalent. Milwaukee can’t get to the line. They can’t score inside without Andrew [...]

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, [...]

ShareHawk watching has not been a big part of my life this basketball season.  Obviously my hands are a little bit tied with the Bucks playing as frequently as they are.  Fortunately, the TrueHoop Network has got me covered.  The Atlanta Hawks have a terrific blogger by the name of Bret Lagree.  He and I [...]

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 [...]

Share“Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity.” – Eminem There are reasons inside this one big reason why the Bucks had all kinds of problems with the Hawks Monday night, but we all know there is one reason that looms large: Andrew Bogut in street clothes. The trickledown effects of Bogut being out appeared [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score When Joe Johnson started putting it down in the fourth quarter, four straight buckets from 11-feet and in with none of them being very challenging for him and a different defender failing in each attempt to stop him, it felt like the same story as the last Hawks-Bucks game.  Atlanta had a superstar [...]
