Share What to Watch For: Bucks Nate Wolters returns home. He got to play in South Dakota in the preseason where Larry Drew gave him a surprise start in the state where he went to college.

ShareWhat to Watch For: Bucks Kevin Love is a phenomenal basketball player. He grabs tons of rebounds, makes all kinds of shots, shoots free throws and generally is one of the best offensive players in the NBA. But he’s not a great defender. In fact, the Wolves are without much of a rim defender at [...]

Per the Bucks PR Department: The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired veteran guard Luke Ridnour (6-2, 175) as part of a three-team deal [...]

ShareRecap/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 John [...]

While it’s encouraging that the Bucks put some room between themselves and the true bottom feeders of the NBA by picking up the win, it’s still concerning that they’ve yet to put anything close to a full game together. Against the Pistons they used a similar strong third quarter to set themselves up for a win after a poor start. In Chicago, the Bucks came out hot and had an 18 point lead early in the third quarter before wilting down the stretch and blowing a great opportunity. If the Bucks hope to battle for that eighth seed this season, they’ll need to string together four quarters at a time rather than just one or two. Against Minnesota, two quarters will do. Against the Bulls or the Heat or the Hawks? It’s not the recipe for success.
