Found April 25, 2013 on Orlando Magic Daily:
There is not a whole ton for Magic fans to watch basketball-wise right now. The Magic are not in the Playoffs and there are few players that would interest Magic fans. If you are watching the Playoffs, it is likely because you love basketball or are pining to fill an empty hole in your heart for Playoff basketball. One player most Magic fans want to do well is J.J. Redick. Not only are his Milwaukee Bucks (still feels weird) playing up against the Magic's archrival Heat, but he is also one of the fan favorites. That standing ovation he received in his first game back in Orlando was something very organic and was a showing of appreciation for the first six full seasons of his career.

Bucks plan to stay positive, push back in Game 4

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. The Milwaukee Bucks understand the end is likely near.

But don't expect the Bucks to fold up and pack for vacation just yet. Milwaukee expects to come to play Sunday afternoon for Game 4 at the BMO...

Brandon Jennings Still Says Bucks Will Win Series In Six Games
