Disappointing 4th Quarter Buries Bucks

Whats with these guys? After a so-so first half the Bucks(9-15) come out and have a great 3rd quarter, then just completely crap the bed in the 4th. Just ugly, and supremely frustrating. The Warriors(7-15) had 7, count them, 7 guys score double figures as the Warriors outscored the Bucks 37-11 in the 4th and won 119-92. It was a 1 point game at the end of the 3rd period.

I don't even know what to say. The Bucks again let their opponent destroy them in FT attempts, grossly out foul the other team, and allowed an opposing FG% around .500. You just can not win with that cocktail. I don't know how you change it, but it seems as if Skiles has something to work on and it hasn't gotten through to his team yet.

The Bucks leading scorer was Redd with 27 points. Ridnour, Jefferson and Bogut also had double figure points. CV didn't have the points tonight but he grabbed 10 boards and had 4 blocks from the bench.

Bucks Score.

The Bucks play at home against the Indiana Pacers(7-14) Saturday at 7:30 pm. Fond du Lac and Marquette native Travis Diener is unlikely to play due to a sore foot.

Every time I turn on the Bucks game on TV, they are losing at some point in the game. I am yet to see them being ahead. I am shocked they actually won 9 games... Where is Skile's vaunted defense? The Bucks as a team should relocate or seize to exist. Milwaukee already has one perennial loser (Brewers).

Well I get what you are saying, but how are the Brewers perennial losers over the last 4 or 5 years. I get that over the long haul yes, but Milwaukee looks to be turning a corner to be at least competitive every year. The Bucks need to start playing some home games and I think you'll see them shape up some. They do have the most road games in the NBA right now I believe.
