Bucks vs. Hornets: Milwaukee Swats Charlotte Away

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Defense, defense...and more defense! In a game that wasn’t even close, the Milwaukee Bucks dismantled the Charlotte Hornets, 123-85. Game Summary Charlotte landed the first punch in this one by quickly constructing a five-point lead, but a 20-2 Milwaukee run launched the Bucks in front by a comfortable margin. That was thanks in large part to Damian Lillard, who buried several threes en route to a 14-point quarter that gave Milwaukee a 32-16 lead after one. The rampant scoring continued in the second. The Bucks kept hitting from beyond...

Vote in the Brew Hoop Tuesday Tracker: Still concerned?

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Tracking the larger sentiments of Bucks fans week by week Let’s see how much difference a week makes. Did the Bucks stop the All-Star break reeling by playing actual, you know, games? How much better does 5-7 look than 3-7, if it even does at all? Embiid or no Embiid, nearly everything Milwaukee did in Philly looked flawless, and say what you will about Minnesota’s prospects for the season, but that’s an elite defense any way you slice it. Yes, it’s good to see the Bucks attack two quality opponents (even if one is more of the...

Both sides will look to keep it interesting, however, with Charlotte carrying a 5-1 record in their last six and the Bucks aiming to maintain their newfound post-All-Star momentum. Where We’re At It was a good old-fashioned beat down the last time the Bucks took the floor, wiping the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers...

With Damian Lillard winning the three-point contest and All-Star MVP followed by a sterling 2-0 record to kick off the ceremonial second half of the season, is it too soon to say the season is saved?

Bucks vs. 76ers: Dame Game

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ “We’re starting to look like the Bucks again.” The Milwaukee Bucks handled the Philadelphia 76ers 119-98. The first half was a beautiful pairing of swishing and flowing offense with solid and pesky defense. The second half wasn’t, but the Bucks held steady for the win. The absence of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute’s protege didn’t help matters for the home team, who continue to compile a dreadful record without him. Still, the Bucks took care of business, even with our own fragile star sidelined. Damian Lillard led the way with 24 points,...
