Share Enemy: Hoopinion Point Guard Keyon Dooling vs. Mike Bibby We’ve been over this a time or two.  Dooling: defense.  Bibby: offense.  Fortunately for Milwaukee, Dooling’s a better offensive player than Bibby is a defensive player.  Especially lately.  Dooling’s connected on 43.2% of his threes this month and 41.6% of his shots overall.  Injuries to [...]

ShareUPDATE: Tonight’s game has been postponed due to weather conditions in Atlanta.  It will be made up March 15th.  Tomorrow’s Bucks game at home against San Antonio will be played as scheduled. Enemy: Hoopinion Point Guard Keyon Dooling vs. Mike Bibby Dooling has far more freedom to impact games than Bibby.  It seems as though [...]

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 [...]

ShareI remember walking out of the Bradley Center on March 28th feeling very good about things. Milwaukee had just defeated the Grizzlies, the day was still young after the early game, the temperature was in the 60’s and a possible successful playoff run was on the horizon.  Now, less than one month later, clouds draped [...]

Share Why on Earth is there so much time between games in the playoffs? Is it me, or has the little amount of air that was in this series been let out? Imagine that the Bucks and Hawks had a real competitive, back and forth series. How frustrating would it be to have to wait [...]

ShareBefore 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.
