As for the game Friday night, the Bucks started off early in the first quarter slow but picked it up late to take a two point lead. This was a very low scoring game with the Bucks only have 19 points in the first. The second was when things got out of hand for twelve NBA minutes. This was the highest scoring quarter for both teams, but it seemed that every possession the Bobcats were shooting free throws. The Bobcats were 14-18 from the free throw line in the quarter, while Milwaukee was 10-15 from the line for the whole game. The Bucks have been getting killed at the line of late, so if they want to make a run in the playoffs they need to stop hacking people.
The fourth quarter was a very tough one for the Bucks, as they just kept turning over the ball. They had four straight possessions that they never got a shot off. The only good thing is that the Bobcats didn't really take advantage of the Bucks mistakes. Both teams put up a whole 15 points each in the quarter. The biggest shot of the quarter came with 10 seconds left in the quarter when John Salmons hit a game tying three. Raymond Felton missed a jumper at the horn that would send the game into overtime.
