Bucks Beat Rockets, but Get Bullied

The Bucks played back-to-back nights this week, facing off on Monday and Tuesday. Monday the Bucks took down the Rockets with a 96-92 victory. They continued to use the new starting five against the Rockets, and it worked as the Bucks won the rebounding battle 43-41. That is going to be a stat to keep your eye on all season if this team is to have any chance. The Bucks had 7 blocked shots too, actually showing a little defense. Lets check out some highlights from the Rockets game.

* Carlos Delfino knocked in 4-10 from downtown. He finished the game with 16 Pts, 8 Rebs, and 2 Assists.

* Hakim Warrick had a nice game again with 12 Pts, 9 Rebs. He did however foul out though.

* Redd scored a team high 18 Pts. (Lets give him the Bucks POTG)

* The Bucks held the Rockets to 37 % shooting for the game.

Tuesday night the Bucks faced the Bulls in a tight one. They tied the game late on a Jodie Meeks three pointer, but Dan "Grab and Reach" couldn't make a tip in or a jumper in the final seconds as the Bucks would fall to the Bulls 87-86. It was unfortunate, as the Bucks came out firing with 30 points in the first quarter. After that they went cold shooting 36% for the game. One positive is that Redd is starting to get more minutes, looking better after his knee surgery in March. Lets check out a few highlights from the game.

* Hakim Warrick, please don't fail us in the regular season. He just continued to play good with 25 Pts, 6 Rebs. (Bucks POTG)

* Brandon Jennings, congrats on your first double-double. He he put up 10 Pts, 12 assists. The only negative part was his shooting percentage, 2-13 from the field.

* Bogut didn't play and Joakim Noah took advantage of that. Noah had a huge game with 20 Pts, 16 Rebs, and 3 Blocks.

Looking forward to the regular season, it looks like Carlos Delfino will be suspended for the first game. He got into it with Austin Daye from the Pistons, and while they will both miss the first game, I am guessing Austin Daye will miss more games, due to the fact I have never heard of this guy.
