The Bucks split the weekend dip, but really should have finished the weekend 2-0. Saturday afternoon the Bucks played in Miami. Not really sure why they played a Saturday afternoon game, but the way they played during that game leads me to believe they should play Saturday matinees more often. The game didn't look like it would be easy until the third quarter when the Bucks played awesome defense, also outscoring the Heat 25-12 in the quarter. They continued that momentum into the fourth, and because of the big lead they were able to sit their starters to rest up for Sunday's game.
They weekend wasn't over, as on Sunday the Bucks had a huge test as they faced the Hawks for the first time all season. This is a team that they matched up against well, but just got out to an awful start Sunday. They got down early 14-5 so Skiles decided to bring a few bench players in. That's when the Bucks started clicking. Stackhouse and Salmons were the two guys that worked well together, which shows you just how much they've been able to improve as of late. The Bucks fought back to have a two point lead at halftime.
