Bucks Fight Back to Beat Winless Nets

The Bucks are hosted the Nets Wednesday night at the Bradley Center, and I'm feeling like doing things a little different tonight. I will write each section after the quarter ends, putting my feelings towards the game after each quarter. Remember that once I type about a quarter anything can happened after that quarter. After the game if over I will pick a Bucks POTG and a Hunter of the Night. Lets take a look at the first quarter.

The Bucks came out a little flat shooting, but turned it around with a few Delfino tray balls. Bogut had a very nice quarter with 10 pts, 2 rebs, and 2 asts. The Nets are a very bad team, and so far they just don't look like a team working together at all. Wasn't a bad quarter for the Bucks till Jennings and Bell went to the bench, as they had a 20-13 point lead with 2:35 left in the quarter. Unfortunately though, Chris Douglas-Roberts hit a three at the buzzer to cut the lead to 20-19 after one. Not a good quarter for the Bucks at all. They really need to get a little run going and put this team away. Lets hope things change after the first quarter.


The second quarter was the Terrence Williams show as he scored all 16 of his points in the quarter. Winks' boy CDR also did some work getting to the hoop. The Bucks on the other hand looked like crap in the first part of the second quarter, and they were outscored 19-9 with 5:20 left in the quarter. Ridnour played well though, and he is starting to look like he is getting the feel for his backup role on this team. Hakim Warrick, who got benched tonight for Ersan, looks clueless out there. He can't make a shot, and his defense has been next to none. Not sure what happened to the Warrick from preaseason. After the rough second fram, the Bucks trail 48-41 at half. Milwuakee needs to get to the line more in the second half because they have only been to the free throw line 4 times, two of which have been because of defensive three in the key. Come on Bucks get your shit together, we cant lose to a team that is 0-11.

Thanks Bucks for listening to what I had to say! The Bucks came out hot with a 15-0 run to start the second half. It was a team effort with Jennings throwing in 8 points during that time. Jennings also had the play of the year during this run. When Bogut swatted a rebound back to the top of the key, Chris Douglas Roberts grabbed it. He tried to get it back to the point guard when Jennings came from behind to steal it, dribble between two Nets, and take it the distance for the dunk. This give the Bucks the momentum for the rest of night.

In addition, Bogut has been huge all year with this left hand, and that continued tonight in the third quarter. The Nets showed who they really are in the third quarter scoring only 12 points. Still, the Bucks are still having a hard time getting to the line in the third quarter, which is something we need to work on. It also makes it hard to make your throws late when you have a little lead late. Lets hope the defense can hold up and shut down the Nets again in the fourth quarter. Bucks lead 69-60 after three quarters in this game.


The fourth quarter was some more of the basketball that I like to see the Bucks play. They just came out with the same intensity that they had in the third quarter, starting the fourth playing good defense and finding the open guy. Delfino, who had a good first quarter, played well again in the fourth quarter. Carlos has 8 points in the fourth quarter giving him 21 for the game. New Jersey on the other hand never got things going. The Bucks played sloppy late by turning the ball over, and giving the Nets some free hoops. But in the end the Bucks held off the Nets who never got real close to win 99-85. Lets look at some individual highlights from the game tonight.

* Carlos Delfino got some extra minutes tonight because of Luc Richard being out with a day to day injury. Carlos played very well scoring 21 pts, 6 asts, 4 rebs, and 4 big shots from downtown. It was a hard decision tonight but we are going to give Delfino the Bucks POTG tonight.

* Andrew Bogut also had a huge game. He finished with 21 pts, and 11 rebs. He did leave late with a turned ankle lets hope that he is alright. He did walk to the locker room on his own. Good game tonight for Bogut, on most nights this would get you player of the game.

* Ridnour had a nice game off the bench tonight scoring 17 pts, 4 rebs, and 3 asts. He has been playing very well off the bench for the Bucks this year. It's something I hope he can keep doing long term he is a great NBA backup point guard. Just a very smart player on the court.

* Bucks played a very bad team tonight in the Nets so the 19 turnovers didn't hurt them. They need to get this number down a little bit. Jennings finished the game with 8 turnovers himself, something he needs to improve on. Jennings did however finish with 19 pts, 8 asts.

* Chris Douglas Roberts had a huge game for the Nets tonight. This guy can just get to the hoop it seems at any point in time. He finished the game with 31 pts, 10 rebs, 3 asts, and 3 steals. This is a bright spot for the Nets. CDR earns himself the Hunter of the Night tonight. The other bright spot for New Jersey is Terrence Williams, he has 20 pts, 10 rebs.

The Bucks improve their record to 6-3 on this young season. Next up for the Bucks are the Charlotte Bobcats Friday night in the Bradley Center. The Bucks will welcome Stephen Jackson to the Bradley Center for the second time in a week. He was with the Warriors Saturday night when Jennings went off for his 55. Click the next clue for a free Bucky Channel t-shirt for the rest of the box scores, if anyone cares.

I get so tired of working so hard for our survival.

Hello there to all Bucks fans worldwide! Nice to meet y'all.

As a fan of Argentina, I couldn't be more happy to see Carlos DELFINO performance against the Nets. Not that this is something new as I'm sure many of you have already aware of his capability when he was playing for the Raptors.

He showed tremendous determination of his first start and made plenty of basket. He also proved that he can be an provided courtesy of his six assists. Let’s hope that we will see more from him during the coming months.

I like what I’m seeing from the Bucks this season. Andrew BOGUT can compete among the big names in the NBA. But for me the biggest breakthrough for me has to be Brandon JENNINGS. I’ve seen him some highlights from his time in Italy and boy he’s got talent.

Anyway here is my link about DELFINO performance against the Nets.

Hope to see some Bucks fans dropping and giving their own view.
