MILWAUKEE More often than not, numbers can tell the story.
Two major numbers worked against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Chicago turned 19 Milwaukee turnovers into 24 points and the Bulls scored 66 points in the paint on their way to a 104-88 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
"We made mistakes and they capitalized," Bucks guard Monta Ellis said. "We got behind to a great team. Coming off the back-to-back it was going to be kind of tough for us to make that run to get the lead, especially the way they were playing."
Not only was Milwaukee playing on the second night of a back-to-back, the Bucks were unable to fly back from Detroit until this morning due to engine failure on the team's charter plane.
The Bucks looked the part of a tired team in the first half and the Bulls were the polar opposite. Motivated and energized to get back at the Bucks for beating them on their home court, the Bulls were playing hard and feeding off a large co...
BEST OF MAXIM
Former Celtic and NBA Dunk Contest champ Nate Robinson had a pretty sweet dunk during last night's Bulls-Bucks game. Stacey King (who played 5 games for the C's), was doing commentary on the game and goes nuts after Nate's dunk, mentioning that he has been waiting for little Nate Robinson to dunk this year.
I would love to see Nate Robinson in the dunk contest this year...
Nate Robinson explodes to the rim for a one handed dunk off a back door cut during the Bulls victory over the Bucks on Wednesday evening. It was the 5’9” 3x dunk champion’s first dunk since the 2010-2011 season as he is heard yelling after the throw down “I want my money” to Rip Hamilton who he made a bet with that he would have one this year:
Robinson was a late Bulls addition this season and said he wasn’t concerned before Thibodeau contacted him as he thought he’d play in the NFL this season if he didn’t land with and NBA.
It’s Nate’s world.
”I was going to (try for a) tryout (with the Seahawks) and play football,” said Robinson. “If no team wanted me for basketball I was going to play football.”
Nate Robinson scored 16 of his 24 points in the second quarter, leading the Chicago Bulls to a 104-88 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Jimmy Butler, a second-year pro from Marquette, had 18 points and five rebounds in a return to the arena where he played college basketball.
Samuel Dalembert had 14 points and a season-high 13 rebounds for the Bucks. Ersan Ilyasova...
There are several athletes in the major pro sports that we talk about in terms of what it would be like if they played another sport.
A lot of the time the question revolves around basketball players transitioning to the NFL or vice versa. Some of those athletes were great in dual sports and think about making the jump.
Chicago Bulls point guard Nate Robinson was once an All American...
Bucks @ Knicks: MSG 730pm
The Knicks continue their home stand at the Garden against two of the most explosive guards in the league, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, as well as the rest of the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are currently seeded 7th in the East and since new coach Jim Boylan has taken over the Bucks have opened up the offense. They are pretty strong on the glass...
After Milwaukee's reserves helped turn things around, Brandon Jennings turned the game into a rout.
Jennings scored 20 of his 30 points in the third quarter as the Bucks cruised to a 117-90 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.
Mike Dunleavy had 17 points and Monta Ellis added 14 for the Bucks, who rallied from a 15-point first-quarter deficit to take a 10-point...
MILWAUKEE The door that had opened for Brandon Jennings to make the All-Star Game has been slammed shut.
NBA commissioner David Stern has picked Brooklyn center Brook Lopez to replace injured Boston point guard Rajon Rondo on the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Jennings was not chosen initially when the reserves were announced last Thursday but seemed to be one of the favorites...
Nate Robinson has been a revelation for the Bulls this season in Derrick Rose's absence. Hopefully he doesn't continue the same great play tonight in Brooklyn

By DANA GAURUDER AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Brandon Jennings knew he was cooling down late in the third quarter on Tuesday when he tossed up an airball on a 3-point attempt. By that time, he had already extinguished the Detroit Pistons. Jennings scored 30 points, including a 16-0 personal run in the third quarter, as the Milwaukee Bucks rolled past the Pistons 117-90 at The Palace...
