The Milwaukee Bucks played aggressive on both ends of the floor for 48 minutes, and embarrassed the struggling Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night. Final score 99-85, but it wasn’t even that close. The Bucks were up by 27 points late in the second quarter, and cruised to victory in the second half. It was never close.
The Bucks could seemingly do no wrong for the first three quarters, and were first to just about every 50/50 loose ball. Though they only shot 41% from the field, and only 3/16 from three. Imagine if they had been on fire? Jennings is playing consistent on both ends of the floor, and in all aspects of the game. Udrih had 10 assists. The only questionable performer at this time is Illyasova – he continues in a bit of a shooting slump (2-9). Otherwise, not much else to say about this one, it was a true spanking.
The Bucks moved to 5-2 on the year, and are now in first place in the Central. The Pacers, projected to be one of the better teams in the East this year, fell to 3-6. Yes, they are without Granger, but that doesn’t explain how lowsy the Pacers are playing this year.
In other news –
1) The Lakers lost again on Tuesday. Awesome.
2) Memphis and OKC squared off last night. Western Conference Finals preview? I think so. Memphis won 107-97. Look out for the Grizz.
3) Sophia Minnaert did a half time segment again last night during the Bucks game. Very intriguing.
4) God damn, I have to get me some of the Weinhard beer.
