Milwaukee Bucks: The power of the turnover

The 2014-2015 Milwaukee Bucks are really good at forcing turnovers. Opponents average a league high 17.3 turnovers per game against the Bucks. The team’s offense is also really bad at holding onto the ball, averaging 16.7 turnovers per game which is 3rd worst in the league. As the Bucks’ record  suggests though, coughing up the ball is not the unforgivable sin that your high...

After today, the Houston Rockets have won 5 straight games.
