Without Andrew Bogut … : Heat 87 – Bucks 74

Without Andrew Bogut … : Heat 87 – Bucks 74

| March 27, 2010 | Reply

Share Without Andrew Bogut… …it’s an understatement to say the Bucks aren’t the same.  Offensively, there was very little room for shooters to operate and the guards had no release valve when they drew extra defenders on penetration. …defensively, Milwaukee was equally disastrous.  If I had a dollar for every time a Bucks defender flew [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score After intensity lagged considerably against the Clippers and Kings, one could only assume things had to get better against the Nuggets for the Bucks Saturday.  Unfortunately, they were coming off a double overtime game Friday night, got to their hotel around four in the morning Milwaukee time and were facing a team with [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score Saturday night I ventured to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner.  Unfortunately, the wait was to be over 30 minutes and my friends and I were too hungry to wait..  With a lack of other options in the area, we settled on Applebees. I’m not an Applebees guy; they’ve screwed up my mediocre food [...]

The Bucks and (even more) Trade Rumors UPDATE 2-17 10:29 AM

ShareSo. Many. Rumors. I know no one can get enough, so I thought I’d try and keep updating this post to do my best to keep everything together for the next day or so. That rumor about Kurt Thomas to the Hawks?  Just a rumor according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.  I was suspicious of it [...]

ShareThe weeks and days leading up to the trade deadline involve so many rumors that it’s hard to keep track of what’s reality and what’s fiction. That’s where I come in. I’ve constructed a handy guide of the Bucks players most likely to be on the move.  I’ll fill you in on where they could [...]

Turning Superhuman into Super Human: Defending Dwyane Wade

| January 31, 2010 | Reply

Share6-20 for 21 points.  That was Dwyane Wade’s final shooting line Saturday night and that was probably everything the Bucks could have asked for.  That sort of night out of a player like Wade is part good defense and part good luck, but probably more good defense than we realize.  I took the time to [...]

ShareRecap/Box Score The Bucks biggest (16,128, nice job Milwaukee) and loudest crowd of the year was almost treated to what would have been the Bucks biggest upset of the season.  In fact, it hardly looked like an upset at all for the first two and a half quarters.  It was simply one team outplaying the [...]

Game 12 Preview: Bucks at Spurs

Game 12 Preview: Bucks at Spurs

| November 22, 2009 | 4 Replies

I’d almost expect Kurt Thomas to get the start in this one after how well he played on Saturday. Thomas and Gadzuric seem likely to exchange starting roles based on who the Bucks are playing in Andrew Bogut’s absence. Thomas knows the Spurs well, having spent the last year and a half in San Antonio. I’d go as far as to suspect he’ll be spending the majority of the evening as the Bucks primary defender on Tim Duncan. His veteran know-how and strong base are a better fit on Duncan than Ilyasova’s annoyance.

ShareRecap/Box Score A few weeks ago in his pregame Q&A session, Scott Skiles commented on how coming out of September he thought he had a real good shooting team on his hands.  Then the season started and the Bucks struggled out of the gate.  Guys were shooting less than their career norms and the offense [...]
