The Milwaukee Bucks dropped to 7-6 on the season after a blowout loss to the Knicks on Wednesday night. The final score was 102-88. The story line on this one is pretty simple. The Knicks can make 3′s. This leads to lots of floor space, and open shots for the bigs. Makes life easy. Steve Novak killed them. The Bucks unfortunately, cannot shoot 3′s that well, which makes everything more difficult . The Knicks shot 11/21 from the 3 point line, while the Bucks shot 5/13 (this is actually one of the Bucks better performances – yikes). This one was never really close. Bucks were down 20 plus midway throught the third, and never made a run. Lots of stupid passes by the Bucks. Dalembert has a tendency to try some no look ******** passes, and they never go well. Carmelo Anthony was pretty much unstoppable. The Bucks starting unit just isn’t in sync. The bench is playing better. McGlocklin was calling for stops, but the goddamn Bucks couldn’t get stops. The only bright spot was that Doran Lamb looked pretty good – not great, but he was aggressive on the offensive end (8pts), and competent on defense. Despite this ********* performance, the Bucks remain in first place in the Central. They have the Wolves on Friday. In other news: 1)Knick sharp shooter Steve Novak threw on the title belt after draining a 3 last night. Since he is a Wisconsin Native, and Marquette grad, I guess that is ok. 2)The Wizards got their first win of the season. Way to go guys. Rattle off 11 more and you’ll be at .500. 3)Ricky Rubio has been cleared to return to practice. I suspect he’ll be in the starting line up by mid December. Rubio has a new commercial out. According to Footlocker, he is an international icon. Hell yeah Ricky. 4) Big fight in the Nets Celtics game. Rondo, Humphries, and Wallace were ejected. I belive Humphries just has some misplaced aggression, and he was just pissed he can’t get the annulmeent he is after.
