Bucks Continue To Slide, Still Grip 8th Spot

You know writing these posts would be a lot easier if these teams actually won. I just have nothing to say. The Bucks looked bad again last night, even though they got 27 points from Richard Jefferson, and 15 and 14 from Charlie Bell and Keith Bogans off the bench. Milwaukee lost 95-86 to the New Orleans Hornets.

The big reason is the complete domination of rebounding that is taking place against the Bucks. They lost the board battle last night 46-30. Seriously, I think Elson has done an admirable job filling in for Bogut, but the man is not a very good rebounder. Gadzuric is a good rebounder, especially on the offensive glass, but he is basically useless because he picks up a foul every minute and half.

Amazingly, Milwaukee still holds the 8th seed over Chicago by fractions of a percent. I wish the Bucks could kick it up a few notches and start to pull away but it doesn't appear that will happen.

The Bucks take on Boston at home on Sunday at noon.
