Bucks Look Lost, Again

Every Monday night, I play in a rec basketball league with some friends. We are far from a team that has any organization for basketball, but it is just more of something to do to get a workout. The one thing I have noticed that we do every game though is that we play like the Bucks when they get beat. We fall behind early only to fight back before halftime, keep it close for most of the game, and then blow it in the end. Not only did that happen to us on Monday, it happened to the Bucks as well. Milwaukee got outscored 29-18 in the first quarter, and then cut the lead to seven late in the third. After that they just tanked the fourth to only score 13 points.

I think the only highlight of the game Monday was that "Ahrywin Wadges" was there (that's Boston speak for Aaron Rodgers, still can't get that out of my head). He is the man, so anything he attends he makes better no matter what the outcome is. I hope he wasn't really watching much of the game, because we don't need the crappy Bucks play to rub off on him. Justin Tuck was also at the game since the Giants were still stuck in Wisconsin at the time because of the snowy airports. That's when you know things are not going your way in life. You blow a 31-10 lead with 8:17 left in the game against the Eagles, get smoked by the Packers Sunday, find yourself on the outside looking in for the playoffs, you then can't get home because home was pounded with 20 inches of snow, and then you  had to go to a 95-80 Bucks vs Hawks game. That's how bad it could be for one person in the matter of a week and a half. Sorry Justin Tuck (although your life is still way better than mine, oh well).

As far as the game on the court, Keyon Dooling played his best game as a Buck on Monday. He finished with 15 points, 9 assists, and 4 rebounds. CDR is upset with how he is playing, and so are Bucks fans. He plays so well at times, but Monday night he played like he was on my rec league team. Another 37.3% shooting night for the Bucks, and yes, this is getting real old. Almost every time Josh Smith touched the ball the crowd booed him. We treat him like the league treats LeBon James, because he said one thing about Milwaukee. That is awesome. Al Horford owned us with 18 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 assists.

The Bucks are now 12-17 with a 7-7 record at home. It doesn't get any better tonight for them as they travel to Chicago. The Bulls have been tough this season, and the Bucks will have to step up their game Tuesday night. Delfino, Gooden, and Jennings will all still be out Tuesday, so this team is still short handed. I just wish I could see the real potential of this team. Could there be one last Bucks upset in 2010? Guess you will have to check it out tonight at 7:00 on FSN.
