ST. FRANCIS, Wis. The dreaded back-to-back in the NBA. Nobody likes them, but everybody has to play them.
And they haven't been kind to the Milwaukee Bucks over the course of the last three seasons. Since making the playoffs in 2009-10, the Bucks are just 19-33 in second games of back-to-backs, including a 2-5 mark this season.
The numbers don't lie and make it clear to see why Milwaukee has struggled when it has to play on consecutive nights. The Bucks are averaging 95.6 points per game this season, but that number drops to 89.9 on the second leg of back-to-backs and every other statistical category aside from turnovers takes a negative turn, as well.

"If you want to somehow get some pretty good distance from .500, you can't play every back-to-back .500," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "You can't win the first game and lose the second game, things like t...

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks were expecting to play without Beno Udrih this weekend, but Udrih is giving it a go Friday night against Houston.
After practice Thursday, Bucks coach Scott Skiles wasn't confident Udrih's sprained right ankle would allow him to play, and the backup point guard sat out of Friday morning's shootaround.
"We haven't seen him (on...
The Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the most surprising NBA teams this year, as the Bucks currently have a record of 16-13 and are the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference as of today. However, it is well known that they have a very interesting roster, headlined by Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, both scoring guards, who will both most likely be free agents at the end of the...
