Bucks vs. Grizzles Preview: Gaining Back that Momentum

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Bucks hope to head into All-Star Break on a winning streak With the final game before the All-Star Break upon us, the Milwaukee Bucks are closing out the first half against the Memphis Grizzlies. It’s their first matchup of the season together, and the Bucks first road game since February 14 when the Oklahoma City Thunder pummeled them in Chesapeake Energy Arena. Where We’re At Well, we were feeling darn good about the Milwaukee Bucks until the Denver Nuggets stomped in and flattened every aspect of Bud’s defense last night for a...

Milwaukee vs. Denver: Nuggets Fly Past Bucks, 128-97

Milwaukee vs. Denver: Nuggets Fly Past Bucks, 128-97

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Nikola Jokic’s triple-double makes life difficult for the Bucks The Bucks’ five-game winning streak would come to a halt Tuesday night, as the Denver Nuggets knocked off Milwaukee, 128-97. The first quarter would begin with a flurry of Giannis Antetokounmpo slam dunks. Like seriously, I think he had like eight or so. It was really wild. However, the Bucks’ defense did show some weaknesses that Denver took advantage of. The Nuggets would possess the lead for the majority of the quarter and close things out with a 15-2 run. They’d carry a...

Rapid Recap: Nuggets 128, Bucks 97

Bucks shoot just 28.2% from deep On a night where they couldn’t buy a 3-point shot, the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Denver Nuggets, 128-97. NBA.com Box Score Denver would take advantage of a porous Milwaukee defense after one, as they possessed a 37-23 advantage. In the last 3:22 of the first quarter, the Bucks were outscored 15-2. Milwaukee would end up shooting a percentage of just 24% (6-of-25) from deep in the first half, which would be the largest component in Denver owning a 64-50 halftime lead. Milwaukee wouldn’t be able to put much of a dent in the Denver lead...

Bucks vs. Nuggets Preview: Let The Good Vibes Roll

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Milwaukee Bucks look to keep the good times rolling on the last game of their home stand Three weeks ago, on February 8th, the Milwaukee Bucks announced shortly before a game against the Denver Nuggets that Jrue Holiday would not be available, and Bryn Forbes would be starting in his place. Now, it’s nearly come full circle, as Holiday just returned from his absence due to testing positive for COVID-19. Milwaukee hopes they can recapture the offensive magic of that first game against Denver, when they pulled out an impressive...

Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports Let’s remember to sticky this one Every Monday at 5:00 PM Central this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. This is your place to discuss all the NBA’s action happening during the week when the Bucks are off-duty. We’ve reached the final stretch of the first half of the season, the All-Star break awaits, and the NBA has largely been able to hang on and continue playing games despite a spate of infections early on in the season. I’m not sure we can ever determine how to apportion credit for...

Sinking The Clippers: Analyzing The Bucks’ Fourth Quarter Defense

Sinking The Clippers: Analyzing The Bucks’ Fourth Quarter Defense

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports The Bucks held Los Angeles to 19 points in the 4th quarter on Sunday. How well did they defend? The scoring exhibition put on by Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday deserves attention. In fact, let’s give the dunk that served as the exclamation point on his 17-point fourth quarter one more look... The Greek Freak seals the deal!! pic.twitter.com/1mcxpAJ7ku— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) February 28, 2021 But it’s not the Bucks’ offense that deserves credit for the 105-100...

Monday Morning Media Roundup: March 1st, 2021

Photo by Stacy Revere/ The “Looks like winning is back on the menu” Edition In a league with a long season like the NBA, it is hard to get all that worked up over a single game. In a league with a regular season that is given less and less credence as a predictor of playoff success like the NBA, it is hard to decide whether a winning or losing streak actually means anything. Yet amid all those mixed signals, this sport can still kindle feelings of passion from time to time, even if the season isn’t on the line. We went from feeling in the dumps after the first...

This Sunday matinee would get started with some nice, finesse moves from Giannis Antetokounmpo. Whether it was from his scoring or passing, he was all over the floor in the opening period. Milwaukee would ride on six points from Brook Lopez and five apiece from Khris Middleton and Bobby Portis to capture a 27-23 lead...

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Milwaukee catches the W in Holiday’s return In a Sunday matinee at Fiserv Forum, the Bucks would eek out a massive 105-100 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. NBA.com Box Score The story for the first half for Milwaukee would be sharp and crisp ball movement. It frequently resulted in open looks for Milwaukee, and they’d convert in 46.5% of all first half shots. That’d be strong enough for the home team to carry a 53-48 advantage after two quarters of play. The momentum that the Bucks had throughout the majority of the game fully came...
