Bucks VS Hawks Playoffs at Bradley Center

The Bucks VS Hawks playoffs at the Bradley Center played out to my liking. The good guys took both games away from the hapless Hawks. This is not unusual for Atlanta. They have won only one road playoff game in the past twelve tries.

The same could be said for regular season wins by the Hawks at the Bradley Center. They don't play well here in Milwaukee. As if on cue, the Bucks tied the series, and now get a home game six for sure. It looked as if the Hawks were hit by a car yesterday. Oh yea, they were! The team bus was T-boned by an errant driver, and this forced the Hawks players out onto the streets of Brew City.

What was the play of the day last night? There were six of them. Carlos Delfino hit three six-pointers, and some of those were quite timely shots. He ended the night with 22 points. Jennings bested that mark by one. Every time the Hawks tried to match Jennings up with Zaza Pachulia in the paint, Zaza was smoked. Pachulia had only two rebounds last night, because his man kept dropping the ball in the hoop. How do you rebound when you keep getting burned for a score?

Milwaukee heads to Atlanta for game five, and then it's back to the Bradley Center for game six. Will these past two games give the Bucks the spark to take one on the road? We hope so.
