Really, Bucks?

Yeah Carlos, we the fans are also wondering why you guys lost to the Pistons Tuesday night. These are the games that you must win if you want to be a playoff team, and losing at home to a team like Detroit has to put their chances at an all time low right now. The Bucks just came out flat in the first quarter which is something they are not used to doing. The bench didn't play well at all tonight, and you're not going to win too many games where you only put up nine points. Also shitty is the fact that they were up 9-4 to start the game only to not score again the rest of the first quarter.

Only Charlie Bell, Andrew Bogut, and Brandon Jennings scored in double figures for the Bucks. This team will never win a game when they only put up 81 points in a game. The Bucks also turned the ball over 15 times which this team can't do. They also shot 36.6% for the game which is just awful for an NBA team. It also doesn't help when your big guy shots 8-21 either. Those are not regular Bogut numbers, but that is what happened Tuesday night.

Rodney Stuckey was the Hunter of the Night for the Pistons Tuesday. He finished the night with 18 points, 7 Assists, and 5 rebounds. Still not happy that this crap team beat the Bucks. Jason Maxiell also went to work on the Bucks Tuesday. He came off the bench and put up a double double. He finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds, and he was 7-11 from the field. I also think most players on this Pistons team are on the block to be traded, which is just another reason to say "Really, Bucks?"

The Bucks did fight back to get the lead in the third quarter, proving that they at least were capable of showing some signs of life. They were up 58-54 with 3:27 left in the quarter, only to go cold for the rest of the quarter. Still, heading into the fourth quarter they only trailed by two. The Pistons went on an 8-0 run with just over 5 minutes left in the game though, and that would be it for the Bucks for the night. They could never recover from that run and Detroit got the 93-81 victory. I know Bogut shot really bad, but he will earn the Bucks POTG because he finished with 17 points, 18 rebounds, and 3 blocks. And quite frankly, there was no one else to even consider.

Overall, this was a tough loss for the Bucks. They must really rebound Wednesday night against the Nets so they don't go into the break on a tail spin. Lets hope they don't let the Nets get the best of them. The Nets have been just God awful this year. After the game Wednesday night the Bucks will have off till the following Wednesday when they will face the Rockets at home. Come on Bucks, don't let us down, beat the Nets.
