Ersan Ilyasova notches career-high 34 in Bucks win over Pacers

Ersan Ilyasova topped his previous career-high of 32 points Thursday evening. On a night that featured Milwaukee and Indiana as the only NBA matchup, Ersan Ilyasova wasn't going to let the NCAA Tournament outshine him. Ilyasova poured in career-high 34 points for the Bucks as they pulled off their second-straight victory at home by defeating the Pacers 111-107. A season-best performance for the 6-foot-10 man from Turkey began early, as Ilyasova scored 12 straight points for the Bucks on five consecutive shots. Ilyasova scored a career-high 17 when the first quarter concluded after...

Utah Jazz waive Ian Clark, sign Jack Cooley, Chris Johnson to multi-year deals

Jazz have now made 90 individual moves since July 1st, 2014 -- with draft night still to come! To be frank, the Utah Jazz keep making small moves, and have been doing so all season long. If you could be critical of the front office during the John Stockton and Karl Malone days you could say that they sat on their hands quite a bit. Sure, they had some great teams, but they didn't do a lot once they had their star players. The current GM Dennis Lindsey may have some young stars on his team now, but he's not one to stop working. As a result, the "Sic parvis magna" motto has kept everyone...

Pacers vs. Bucks Final Score: Ersan Ilyasova's monster night helps Bucks hang on vs. Pacers, 111-107

62 fouls. 77 free throws. And one exhausting but desperately needed win for the Milwaukee Bucks. Realistically it probably shouldn't have been quite so difficult for the Bucks on Thursday night -- not when Ersan Ilyasova scores 34 points on an absurd 12/13 shooting from the field, and not after Milwaukee led by as many as 21 in the first half and held a double-digit advantage for much of the second half. But the Bucks are all about "difficult" these days, and the visiting Pacers (and refs) did their parts as well in making the Bucks sweat down the stretch of their 111-107 home win....

Pacers final score: Bucks top Pacers 111-107

Indiana closed a 23-point first quarter gap, but came up short in Milwaukee despite 26 from C.J. Miles and 23 from George Hill. A late push fell short for the Indiana Pacers, who dug themselves in a massive hole early, dropping them 111-107 against the Milwaukee Bucks. George Hill had a chance for a game tying three in the final seconds, but the ball went in and out to give Milwaukee their win, putting Indiana back in the loss column as the season enters its final 10 games. The Pacers trailed 34-11 with one minute remaining in the first quarter, surrendering 17 to Ersan Ilyasova, who had a...

The numbers from Spurs vs. Thunder don't tell the whole story

The Spurs turn in one of the Spursy-est performances of the year in a dismantling of the already mostly-dismantled Thunder. Spurs 130, Thunder 91 - Mar 25, '15 Russell Westbrook is a beast.  He is one of the most unstoppable players in the league, on a team which has become increasingly reliant on his offensive brilliance to produce wins.  The combination of his talent and the vacuum left by KD in the Thunder lineup has led to Westbrook going on a offensive tear which compares to some of Kobe's multi-game streaks, and his near-triple-double averages over the last two months...

Jazz bigs Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert need help from the line from Karl Malone and Mehmet Okur

The Jazz don't have to look far in their rolodex to find the right guys to help Derrick and Rudy's free throw shooting woes Over the last season many people concerned with the Utah Jazz have been concerned with the free throw shooting. And there's good reason to be concerned. The front office, team bigwigs, coaches, and players all want the Utah Jazz to be the best they can be -- no one currently in a decision making position with this team wants to just be average. And in order to go beyond just being average you have to aim for excellence. And in order to be excellent you have to sweat...

March Madness is in full bloom, and the Cavs have a first round pick. Who is out there? The Cavs have Thursday night off while they get ready to play in Brooklyn Friday night, but Quicken Loans Arena will be the home of meaningful basketball all the same. Notre Dame and Wichita State have just tipped off, and the juggernaut Kentucky Wildcats will be next. In years past, this blog would be a mix of glass half full posts about struggling young draft picks and earnest draft analysis around this time of year. A lot has changed.

Bucks vs. Pacers Preview: Milwaukee aims to win second-straight against Indy

George Hill and the Pacers are coming off a game-winning layup against the Washington Wizards. If Khris Middleton can work some magic for the second consecutive night, he'll be regaining some redemption. Two weeks ago Middleton had a chance to give the Milwaukee Bucks a win against the Indiana Pacers on the road, but it came up just short in overtime. The Bucks and Pacers have both endured six-game losing streaks this month, and will hash things out for the third time this season Thursday evening in Milwaukee. Milwaukee will be aiming to end a three-game losing skid to Indiana, as their...

Jazz legend John Stockton was just plain ridiculous when you go over his statistics

Any way you slice it, this man was a beast. First off, happy birthday again to John Stockton. And secondly, man. If the Utah Jazz point God, and basketball Hall of Famer existed during the 24 hour media cycle with YouTube, Vine, Twitter, and Facebook people would just never stop talking about him. For his sake, a man who cherished his privacy, it's probably for the best that he played in a small market in an odd time zone far from all the lights, cameras, and non-Diet Pepsi ads. Sorry, I had to share that again. Yeah, most people known him from his records -- and you have to be pretty...

Ex-Phoenix Suns Goran Dragić and Isaiah Thomas are in their own playoff race in the East

Goran Dragić and Isaiah Thomas might have been traded to the arguably lesser conference but like the Suns they are both still fighting for a playoff spot on their respective new teams. The chase for a playoffs spot is believe it or not even crazier in the East. They might have worst records than the West playoff contenders but there are currently 5 teams still in the running for the last 2 spots; arguably 6 for the last 3 spots, but since the Milwaukee Bucks (35-36) seem to have luck on their side as of late I'll let them keep the 6th seed for now. They won themselves a 2 game advantage...

Just hoping we're healthy hungry and ready to go for a good tune up test for the playoffs.

Plumlee took the Brooklyn frontcourt by storm after a slow start to to season, averaging 13.6 points per game, 8.3 rebounds per game in almost 30 minutes per game.  His above the rim play was the fodder for numerous highlight reels and his athleticism was a shot of adrenaline to a slow, achy...
