Found December 08, 2012 on Losers Bracket:
The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night, 108-93. The Bucks controlled this one from the start. They took a 15 point lead in the first, and they never let the Bobcats make a serious run. The Bucks were without Udrih and Dunleavy again, but they got solid contributions from everyone, and actually looked like they found an identity with their lineup (despite Udrih and Dunleavy being out). Positives: The Rotation. Sanders, Udoh, and Daniels started with Jennings and Ellis. I like Illyasova off the bench, as he gets more opportunities in rythym with either Ellis or Jennings on the bench (because those two control the ball so much and are “volume” shooters.) Sanders and Daniels bring intensity and set a tone to start the game, and then they have some legit scoring threats off the bench with Illyasova and Mbah, and especially once Udrih and Dunleavy get back. Dalembert plays better off the bench also. The Bucks are actually a pretty deep team, and when t...

Bucks' Udoh leaves game with wrist pain

Bucks forward Ekpe Udoh left Sunday's 97-88 victory in Brooklyn with left wrist pain and did not return. Udoh came out after committing a shooting foul on Nets center Andray Blatche with 9:33 left in the second quarter, finishing with three points, two assists and two blocks in 12 minutes. Inserted into the starting lineup last Saturday, Udoh entered Sunday's game averaging...

Williams pays 'respectful' tribute to Majerus

MILWAUKEE -- Coaches don't wear uniforms. So, Marquette coach Buzz Williams needed a way to pay homage to former MU coach Rick Majerus. What he came up with was pretty meaningful. Tossing off his usual coat and tie, Williams wore Majerus' trademark black turtleneck. "I wanted to be respectful," Williams said. "I just wanted to have it be as a tribute. Our...

Bobcats rookie Kidd-Gilchrist returns to game

Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft, returned in the third quarter of Saturday night's game against San Antonio after leaving earlier with an back injury. Kidd-Gilchrist appeared to tweak something in his lower back while battling for a rebound under the basket in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room. He fell straight...

Bobcats Show They Can Blow A 6-Point Lead As Easily As If It Were 18

In their continuing quest to seek out new ways to lose in the most agonizing manner possible, the Bobcats discovered two gems this week.  On Monday they went from hitting the Ben Gordon Lottery to flat broke in 5 minutes.  On Wednesday they figured, “Why bother trying to defeat the Knicks ourselves when J.R. Smith [...]

Q&A with Bucks' Brandon Jennings: Spurs are a clique

After the San Antonio Spurs' recent win over the Milwaukee Bucks, I had a chance to speak with Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings.

Shootaround: A quiet confidence

Milwaukee Bucks (9-9) vs. Brooklyn Nets (11-7) 6 p.m. Brandon Jennings has not always been quiet in his career. His career started a year early as he and Sonny Vaccaro launched an aggressive and surprising move to go to Italy instead of play the obligatory year in college. Jennings' gunner style did not quite fit Euroleague and it caused him to slip in the Draft some. ...

Bucks-Nets Preview

Maybe a new home and look will get the Brooklyn Nets over the hump against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Nets go for their first win in this series in nearly four years as they host the Bucks on Sunday night. Milwaukee has won the past 11 meetings, with its last loss coming March 3, 2009, but those all came when the Nets were based in New Jersey. Those games also were before Brooklyn...
