Roll Bucks!

Milwaukee had 7 players score in the double digits in their 127-120 win at home Saturday night against the lowly Golden State Warriors. Maybe playing a bad team helped the Bucks snap a losing streak, or maybe it was the fact they are at home. My opinion is really, who cares, its a win.

Turnovers were the key, the Bucks had 9 while they forced 20 by Golden State. Richard Jefferson wins TBCPOTG honors as he scored 35 points, a season high, on 13-16 from the free throw line and 10-17 from the field. Bell, Bogans, and Ridnour scored 16, 10 and 17 respectively from the bench which is always a key stat. CV dropped 14 while Session scored 15 and dished out 9 assists. Both shot rather poorly hitting 11-29 combined. Mbah A Moute was the other Buck to score double digits as he knocked down 11.

Don't call it a comeback.

It was a good win for Milwaukee, a needed win, but this ship has to keep rolling. I love to play the Mock Lottery Game on ESPN and currently Chad Ford has the Bucks taking overseas phenom Brandon Jennings. While I am excited at the prospect of him being a Buck, I'd rather make the playoffs.

At 30-36 Milwaukee sits .5 games out of the 8th seed currently held by Chicago. The Bucks play the 2nd of their 6 game home stand against the New York Knicks Tuesday night at 7 pm.
