Bucks Off to Good Start in Summer League

As you can see, the Bucks summer league team is off to a good start. Their 65-59 victory over the Mavericks on Friday was followed with an 80-69 victory over the Cavs last night. With a starting lineup of Brandon Jennings, Jodie Meeks, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Joe Alexander, and Amir Johnson, the Bucks without question have the most NBA-talent ready roster in Vegas. You look at some of these other rosters and you're lucky to find too many guys you've even ever heard of, but the Bucks roster looks pretty solid.

Hopefully, that will help come next year. Getting Jennings and Meeks already on the floor with Mbah a Moute and Alexander will pay dividends, and having Amir Johnson figure out his new teammates early won't hurt either. I can honestly say that I'm more excited about the Bucks Summer League team right now than I was for the real Bucks team most of last season.

Last night, Jennings lead the way with 23 points, 8 assists, and 5 steals. Jennings still has some stuff to work on - his shooting percentage was a bit low and his defense could use some work - but this is a good start for my new favorite Buck. Jodie Meeks had a nice night too with 16 points, and Mbah a Moute stayed true to form with 12 points and 8 boards.

The Bucks are in action again tonight against Sacramenti (Arrested Development reference) at 9:30CT, Wednesday night vs. Toronto at at 5:00CT, and Thursday against Chicago at 3:00CT. You can pay to watch the games here, or you could just fly out to Vegas if you wanted to as well.
