The Bucks Put The Squeeze On The Spurs

Now that my friends was a victory. The Bucks stormed into San Antonio tonight and beat the (20-11) Spurs 100-98 to get to (15-17). Tonight was really a testament to what kind of team the Bucks can be. They started off quickly, held off a few San Antonio runs and then showed enough moxie to not only come back from a 4 point deficit late in the 4th quarter, but then hold off the Spurs for the win on the road. This is the second win against the Spurs this season.

Box Score me. The Bucks out rebounded an out shot the Spurs hitting 51.2% from the field. Both Bogut and Ridnour were the stars tonight. Bogut had a strong line of 20 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks. While Luke had 21 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, a steal, 2 blocks and 2 big three pointers. It's close but he has to win TBC player of the game. Michael Redd was no slouch either scoring 25 points and grabbing a personal season high of 10 rebounds.

For the most part of the game, the passing was crisp and this team really looks comfortable with each other right now. Ridnour has been playing great, and the two real areas of improvement have to be Jefferson being more of a slasher and getting to the line and maybe some improved play by Sessions and CV.

The Bucks have another big test tomorrow as they take on the Houston Rockets at Houston at 6:00 pm.

Scott Skiles has these guys wholeheartedly buying into his system. Seriously this team is going to take off. I'm still getting used to a Bucks team playing good D & attacking the paint on offense. It's otherworldly!
