Bucks Lay Egg in D.C.

This is getting painful, and I have about three more bad games left in me before I give up on this team completely. The Bucks should be so much better than this, but they are just playing like absolute crap. Milwaukee's inability to play to their ability helped the Wizards snap an eight game skid on Wednesday night, as they beat the Bucks 100-85. Milwaukee was 4-14 from downtown, and 5-12 from the free throw line. Those are like stats from a crappy Conference USA team.

When the Wizards get only five points from Rashard Lewis you should be able to beat this team by 20. But somehow guys without the big name have been able to take it to the Bucks lately. Nick Young, pictured on the left, did just that on Wednesday night. He was the leading scorer of the game finishing with 26 points. Cartier Martin finished with 15 points and 4 rebounds. He was 5-7 from deep on the game, so he made more three's himself then the Bucks did as a team.

Milwaukee is now 2.5 games out of the 8th seed. If you are still a fan of this team I'd say you have to be worried about them reaching the playoffs. No one on the team is stepping up and making plays when needed. Jennings finished with 20 points Wednesday, but was 9-24 from the field to do it. Jennings has been cold as of late, and I think he should be looking to pass first instead of chucking up shots. Andrew Bogut finished with a 12 point, 11 rebound night, but he should be a 20 and 10 guy night in and night out.

Milwaukee is now 20-31 on the season, and I would have never seen this coming. Milwaukee will head to Memphis on Friday, and to be honest I don't see the Bucks winning this game. Memphis has been playing very good lately and should have no problem with this Bucks team. Tip is at 7:00 central time on FSN. Watch if you dare, but I would advise you check out the Packers on WWE Smackdown that night instead.
