The amazingly inconsistent Milwaukee Bucks found a way to get dominated by the New Orleans Hornets on Monday night, by a final score of 102-81. The Hornets are 5-11 on the year, and without Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon. And the Bucks lost to them by 21. The Bucks fall to 8-8. They have the Spurs up next. Given the Bucks season so far, they will probably find a way to win, and further confuse their fans.
New format for these articles: positives, negatives, observations
Positives: Hard to find in this one. Mbah looked healthy and aggressive. Jennings shot OK from the three point line, and the Bucks as a team shot 42% from three point land. This is actually pretty good for them.
Negatives: The Bucks scored 31 points in the second half. Jennings scored 25 points, but on 25 shots. They could use someone over 6ft 3 who can score the ball with some sort of consistency. The Bucks are one of the most inefficient offensive teams in basketball. And they allowed the Hornets to shoot 52%. Holy ****, was it bad.
Observations: The Hornets cleared the bench for the first time all year in garbage time. Tobias Harris was a starter at the beginning of the year. He got two minutes last night in garbage time. Dalembert didn’t leave the bench. Robin Lopez has ridiculous looking hair. Worse than Varijao. The Bucks sorely miss Beno Udrih, who provides a spark and some direction off the bench. Scott Skiles looked like he literally wanted to kill someone last night. Seriously, I think he went back to the lockerroom and kicked a cat to death – he looked psychotic sitting on the bench, watching the ******* Hornets score at will.

David Stern gets flak from a lot of different angles. Most of it is deserved. However, he also knows how to run the NBA. He has built the NBA into a brand and made it so much more successful than it was when he took over. He's always a fun listen or read when he has a conversation with someone as well. He did just that with John Reid of the New Orleans Times Picayune...
Bucks fans went from no hope to thinking they were contenders pretty quickly. They don't like Rondo and they don't like KG, but they hate their own players more, it seems. For some reason, that gif of the dancing deer amuses me greatly but I'm not sure why :)
I'm looking for a good showing out of the Bucks tonight. Somebody wake up Dunleavy. Dude is killing...
When the Jazz left New Orleans, they took the perfect name for the city with them. Twenty-four years later the Hornets arrived from Charlotte. They took a detour to Oklahoma City following the tragedy of hurricane Katrina. You remember seeing them being listed as NOK on scoreboards, right? They returned a couple years later and finally [...]
The New Orleans Pelicans? Is this high school or an NBA pro franchise? The New Orleans Hornets are changing their name. With a new owner, a new identity is being forged. But, out of all the selections that were available, selecting the state’s bird was the choice? I mean, that’s nice and all but, is [...]
Yet again, the Milwaukee Bucks faced a big deficit. This time around, there would be no comeback.
For the third time in their last five games, the Bucks trailed by at least 20 points in the second half and that doesn't include Saturday when Milwaukee was down 17 points in the first quarter.
Last Monday, Milwaukee rallied from 27 down to beat Chicago. One week later, sloppy...
On Tuesday, Yahoo! Sports reported that the New Orleans Hornets will change their name to the Pelicans for the 2013-14 NBA season. The team has not confirmed the report, meaning that this is likely a trial balloon to see how well the name catches on in the public. Based on early internet reaction, that balloon would seem to be deflating. Everywhere you look, someone seems to be poking...

The New Orleans Hornets are reportedly changing the team name to
the Pelicans, in honor of the Louisiana state bird, according to
Yahoo Sports. The brown pelican is also featured on the state flag
When Tom Benson became the new owner of the New Orleans Hornets in April, the 83-year-old owner of the NFL franchise the Saints, told reporters that he would like his team to have a new nick-name that is more relevant to the Crescent City, than the name the club is currently sporting. The squad got its name when it was residing in its city of origin; Charlotte and Benson’s thoughts...
We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Milwaukee.
Daniels played tough defense all night on Paul Pierce all game and gave the Bucks god versatility against the Pierce/Terry pick and roll late. He offers preciously little on the other end, but he knows his limitations...
NEW ORLEANS - Forward Ryan Anderson scored 22 points and center Robin Lopez tied his season high with 21points in just 23 minutes of playing time to power the New Orleans Hornets to a 102-81 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks Monday night at the New Orleans Arena. The Hornets (5-11), who had lost nine of their previous 10 games, handed the Bucks their 11th consecutive loss in New...
TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Evan Gordon piece fell into place Saturday for Arizona State, which is feeling so good about its strong start that Jordan Bachynski ran to center court to ring the Territorial Cup bell following another high-flying victory.
Gordon broke out of a season-long shooting slump he was never worried, and neither were the Sun Devils with a career-high 29 points as...
While most remember that New Orleans Hornets forward Anthony Davis was the first pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, the second pick has been making noise with the Charlotte Bobcats.
During yesterday's Charlotte Bobcats/Portland Trail Blazers, Michael Kidd Gilchrist showed off his aerial flair on a fast break and skied for a two-handed jam:
