The boring demands of being a good defensive team

The boring demands of being a good defensive team

| December 27, 2012 | 5 Replies

Share The Milwaukee Bucks have largely been a pretty good defensive team this season. And good defense is a practice in patience and boredom, more or less. That’s probably what makes it so elusive. Being in the right places, rotating crisply and pushing ball handlers to places where they have fewer options – not many [...]

ShareThe first half to the NBA season hasn’t quite been the start that Bucks fans expected. Inconsistent play from the stars of the backcourt and more than a handful of lackluster team performances quickly killed the buzz Milwaukee started the season with. Even with all of that, the Bucks are sixth in the Eastern Conference and [...]

ShareFrom the post game media session after Milwaukee’s win over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, December 18. Brandon Jennings’ line for the night: 34 points on 13-22 FG. Monta Ellis’ line for the night: 19 points on 8-23 FG. Me: With Monta and Brandon - obviously those two are taking so many of your shots  on a [...]

ShareWell, it took roughly a month and a half before the first Brandon Jennings trade rumor dropped. No, there isn’t a specific rumor out there, but speculation began over the weekend as Marc Stein listed Jennings as apart of The Field when reviewing top trade targets. So he’s not necessarily a top target, he’s more [...]

ShareWoooo! An undefeated week of Milwaukee Bucks basketball! Sure, the team had some problems and they weren’t exactly playing title contenders, but they won and won and won and won. And that’s a good thing. Tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers will be a huge test for the team and hopefully they handle it well. Here’s [...]

ShareThe Milwaukee Bucks were riddled with injuries as they stepped on the court to face the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. Larry Sanders had caught some sort of illness. Ekpe Udoh was nursing a sore wrist he’d fallen onto Sunday. Mike Dunleavy’s leg couldn’t make a few crucial movements without too much soreness and Beno Udrih’s [...]

ShareSamuel Dalembert and Ersan Ilyasova. Joel Przybilla and Ilyasova. Dalembert and John Henson. Ekpe Udoh and Henson. Larry Sanders and Udoh. Through 19 games, the Milwaukee Bucks have used five different starting front court combinations and countless other lineup pairings. Enough to make fans go crazy and writers take notice. But there’s reason to the [...]

Numbers don’t lie: Larry Sanders is breaking out

ShareLarry Sanders had a big weekend. A triple double on Friday against the Timberwolves followed up with a 18 point, 16 rebound, five block effort in a win against the Celtics. Before this season, Sanders having back-to-back outings like that was unimaginable. But he’s had a pretty solid season since day one, making the last two [...]
