Someone Woke The Bucks Up!

Don't look now, but after playing high school ball for most of the season, the Bucks have become an offensive force. They've put up 100 or more points in each of their last five games. Could it be that they've finally figured it out or is this simply a case of playing loose from the 11th spot in the East?

Before we get too excited by this latest run, keep in mind they lost on the road last night in New Jersey to bring (actually, to keep) their total number of road wins at six. There's a good chance the snow will be gone before they hit double digit victories on the road.

But I'll take it. I don't want to hear any playoff talk, but it's nice to see the team playing like they have a pulse.

How Many of these did you see Smahed after the Game?

Walking into the Bradley Center on Saturday night I got that feeling the bottom was near; that feeling you get when you hit the low point and the only way to go is up.

It went away after the Bucks posted a heartbreaking loss to the lowly New York Knicks. An argument can be made that Saturday night marked the worst home loss of the season for the Bucks. After leading in the 3rd by 17 points, this one wound up in the loss column.

Bucks Win on the Road! Seriously!

Things are bad Bucks fans. It isn't shaping up to be the year I had hoped. But one needs to look a little harder for the silver lining. Your team really needs you these days. Sure it's tough, but remember what Wilt Chamberlain once said, "Nobody ever roots for Goliath." Folks, this isn’t Goliath.

Last night the Bucks put their 6th road victory in the win column. I guess the good news or, the silver lining, is that they got to that elusive number six before Valentines Day. But the reality of the situation is that the 2007/08 version of the Bucks are horrible on the road.

Here's another bright spot; Mo Williams played like a man possessed at the end on the game. He scored the last 10 points to secure a come-from-behind victory in Memphis. Sure, it's true Memphis isn't that strong of a team, but a win's a win. Hey, I'll take it.
