ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Jim Boylan made it clear from the beginning that he was going to enjoy his time as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, however long that may be.
His players seemed to have followed suit. Playing with a newfound energy and seemingly having fun on the court, Milwaukee is riding the wave of a midseason coaching change to a 2-0 record under Boylan.
"I think our overall attitude is better," Boylan said. "We are playing together as a unit and playing together as a team. Everybody seems to be ready when I call on him. We are making a lot of individual sacrifices.
"We are moving in the right direction, and that's a good sign for us. But we have to stay on that path and that's got to be our focus -- to do whatever is the right thing for our team."
Stressing better communication and playing more as one unit, Boylan has the players buying in early. He referenced a situation in Wednesday's 104-96 victory over Chicago as an example.
