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.
