HT: Bucks 51, Timberwolves 47. Ilyasova with 10 pts, Sanders, Giannis and Dudley 8 each. Brewer leads Minnesota with 11 and Wiggins 9.
Two consecutive steals by Bayless, first led to Dudley layup. Bucks lead 43-39. Ilyasova and Dudley each with 8 off bench.
Someone tap Kidd on the shoulder and discretely yell "GIANNIS" in his ear. Seriously, Middleton AND Dudley over him right now? C'mon.
That was a nice 3FG by Bucks #9, but I never Tweet about Jared Dudley because I know I'd end up typing Dudley Bradley.
Dudley is probably the Buck I would most enjoy hanging out with. Related: I wish he was hanging out with me right now and not playing.
Weird smallball lineup given how badly they've been killed on offensive glass. Need Giannis back in there for Dudley ASAP.
Bucks bench-o-meter: 31 points at half. Mayo with 11 and Ilyasova has 9. Dudley added 7.
Dudley in quickly as Giannis picks up two fouls in first 2 minutes.
Khris Middleton back in starting lineup for Bucks vs. Knicks tonight. Jared Dudley off bench.
Dudley looked like he was trying to dunk on a 9-foot hoop there...didn't work out in the end.
Bucks lineup change: Kendall Marshall will start in backcourt with Brandon Knight; Dudley off bench.
Paging Chris Dudley.... get warmed up.
Jared Dudley reaches in, official blows whistle and ... wait for it ... Dudley points to him and says 'good call.'
Glen Davis is doing Metro traveling scoreboard gig this year. It's been a ticket out of town last 2 years for Ronny Turiaf and Jared Dudley.
Same starters for Bucks with Dudley at SF. Bucks bench has been strong in first two games.
Giannis in at 4 spot now and Henson at 5 with Dudley at 3. Now Mayo for Dudley.
Bucks lineup for home opener same as Wednesday: Knight, Dudley, Middleton, Parker, Sanders.
No Mayo here for final play. They went to Dudley who passed to wide-open Middleton for 3 and the win. But he missed. Hornets win 108-106.
Dudley hustling all over the floor. First he blocked Lance, then diving to floor for steal to set up Knight's 3. Then assisted on last 3.
Dudley blocks Stephenson and Parker is off for dunk and 68-50 Bucks lead. Hornets timeout.
Jared Dudley technical.
As anticipated earlier, I'm totally cool with Kidd's lineup. Dudley/Middleton space floor for starters, Mayo/Ersan off the bench. Fine.
Bucks lineup: Knight, Middleton, Dudley, Parker, Sanders.
Jared Dudley will start at SF and Giannis will come off the bench, coach Jason Kidd said in pre-game interview.
Dudley told me before game he had a minor toe injury but would play because lineup so depleted. He has 14 points in 18 minutes off bench.
Hearing Spencer Hawes will replace Jared Dudley on the Clippers banners inside Staples Center.
