Bucks work in practice to improve defense, rebounding

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Provided a rare stretch of three nights between games, the Milwaukee Bucks came back from Wednesday's day off with a spirited practice at the Cousins Center.

Are the Bucks Rebuilding Masters?

​ As recently as this summer, it looked like the Milwaukee Bucks were in a worse situation than any other NBA franchise. Two years previously, in 2012–13, they entered the playoffs—as the eighth seed in the East, with an uninspiring 38–44 record. Last year, they managed a league-worst 15–67 record. Yes, worse than even the vigorously rebuilding Philadelphia 76ers. And...

If the Milwaukee Bucks aren’t on their toes every time they have a game, they will wind up failing. And by failing we don’t just mean losing on the court.

Road reaction: Mavericks 125, Bucks 102

This time, the Dallas Mavericks didn't need a spectacular buzzer-beating shot to dispose of the Milwaukee Bucks.

nba arcHIVE: Lessons from the 2013-14 Brooklyn Nets

One year ago the Brooklyn Nets found themselves sitting at 6-14 (compared to the current 5-15 Charlotte Hornets record). What would eventually slide into a 10-21 start, soon became a memorable January turnaround that led to reaching the 2nd round of the playoffs as a 6th seed in an historically lackluster conference.

Jason Terry Passes Jason Kidd On All-Time 3-Point List

Houston Rockets guard Jason Terry hit two three pointers in the first quarter of the Rockets home game vs. the Phoenix Suns to pass Jason Kidd for 3rd place on the all time list. Terry finished the game with three 3 pointers to get to 1990 total career three pointers passing Kidd’s 1988 total.

Milwaukee is watching the Bucks in droves; ratings up over 400%!!!!

The Milwaukee Bucks are one game over .500 at 11-10, but when you compare it to last season’s pitiful record of 15-67 and firmly entrenched in last place in the Central Division, this season is like paradise. With such a bad record, it’s no surprise that ratings for last season fell to low levels. As it appears that the Bucks will exceed last year’s win total this month, fans...

OK, it's still not big news -- but the Bucks will be here Tuesday and they are two games better than .500. That right there actually is news.
