Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers

I am going to the Bradley Center tonight to watch the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Philadelphia 76ers and I am pretty excited about it. For one, Allen Iverson will be playing and I'd like to see what all this hype about him is really all about. More importantly, the Bucks are fun to watch. Despite a few recent narrow loses (including last night's game against the Dallas Mavericks), the Bucks are hard working, they have an impressive rookie, and they are a diverse team. During last week’s game, I couldn’t help but glance over at Squad Six’s display of the flags from the players' home countries. It looked like the flag display outside the United Nations. I love it.

Anyways, I'm hoping that starting tonight, the Bucks will be on the winning side of these narrow score margins. Go Bucks go!

Milwaukee Bucks Finish 1-5 on the Road, Stackhouse Debuts

Our Milwaukee Bucks return home to the Bradley Center this evening to take on the Toronto Raptors. In their last meeting, the Bucks defeated the Raptors 117-95. In tonight’s game, Jerry Stackhouse will make his debut as a Buck, after Michael Redd’s season ending injury. Stackhouse played in Dallas last season and has been a free agent upon being traded to Memphis.

The Bucks return home after their whirlwind of away games on the West Coast. The Bucks went 1-5 on the road, losing to the LA Lakers, 77-95; the Phoenix Suns, 101-105; the Portland Trailblazers 108-120; the Utah Jazz 95-112; and the Houston Rockets 98-101. Thankfully, the Bucks were able to defeat the Golden State Warriors, 113-104.

In most of their recent loses, the Bucks have lost by close margins. Maybe Stackhouse can help them seal the deal and finish on top of these close games. You'll have to go and see for yourself! After tonight’s game, the Bucks will head to Toronto to play the Raptors once again. Saturday, the Bucks will host the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Bradley Center. Go Bucks go!

Michael Redd out for season once again

It was almost one year to the day that Micheal Redd tore his ACL, yet again. Redd injured the same knee on January 10, in Los Angeles. Once again, the younger players will have to step up and take his place. It's not like the team isn't used to this. He spent time off the court erlier in the year with some other injury.

The NBA handed down a fine to Brandon Jennings for his cheerful Bucks Twitter tweet after an ovetime win. He tweeted about being back to .500, and you can't do that in the NBA. His tweets have been very strange on some nights, so it was a surprise to me that he got busted for this one.
