Had to get that W for our home opener!! Great team win!! How about that 4th Quarter Defense?! Only 7pts. That's big time. Wizards tomorrow!
Brandon Knight on not being extended: "It's unfortunate. I wanted to get something done."
Bucks win opener 93-81. Philly goes 0 for 14 in last 8:21 of game.
After two games, the Bucks are on pace to be the team that I like more than all other teams.
Bucks win home opener 93-81, thanks to Mayo's 25 points,
The 76ers have 7 points in the fourth quarter. That is not enough.
You'd think Jabari Parker would be more interested in posting up Tony Wroten, but...well, apparently not.
Knight got stepped on underneath basket but seems OK.
Sanders has 13 rebs.
Terrific look from Knight to Sanders for the slam and 90-81 lead. Somehow Knight on triple-double watch again (10 pts, 8 ast, 6 reb)
O.J. Mayo is now 5-7 on threes. The 76ers are 5-18 on threes. This helps the Bucks.
Larry Sanders nearly goes wrong way off jump ball and scores for Philly but catches himself in nick of time. Bucks up 85-81.
Noel blocks Giannis, then dunks on other end. Four subs now for Bucks but Mayo stays in.
Mayo taking over game with 6 pts in first 1:24 of 4th q. Now has 21 pts. Bucks lead 80-74
Kidd stayed with lineup to open fourth and Bucks scored 7 in a row - 5 by Mayo. Now hold 80-74 lead.
Ersan Ilyasova, who played just 12 minutes in opener, has played only five minutes through three quarters. Again, strange.
After 3: Bucks trail 74-73. Mayo has 15 for MKE. Wroten 14, Noel and Thompson 12 for Philly.
O.J. Mayo having his second straight strong game. Vaguely resembles the player we saw last season.

First Nate Wolters appearance of season as he enters with Bayless.
The D-League 76ers lead the Bucks 62-58 at 5:56 of 3rd q. Upset in the making?
Kidd pulls Parker and then Sanders just 4 minutes into second half. Strange. Both are playing well.
Bucks down 4 and Kidd calls a timeout. Wroten getting to basket with ease and now has 14 pts.
Giannis in at 4 spot now and Henson at 5 with Dudley at 3. Now Mayo for Dudley.
HT: 76ers lead Bucks 47-46. Middleton leads with 10 points but Bucks shooting just 41%.
Sanders misses point blank on putback attempt - has 4 pts on 2-of-8 shooting, mostly from close range. Also has 9 rebs.
Khris Middleton: still not the guy you want leading a break.
Noel an impressive-looking rookie and already has 10 points and 4 rebs.
Former Bucks owner Herb Kohl gets standing ovation from appreciate BC crowd.
Giannis defending former Bucks F Luc Mbah a Moute, who has checked in for Philly. Bucks trail 30-29 in second.
Fact that includes fun: John Henson has 4 blocks in 8 minutes tonight. He plays for the Bucks.
Bayless in at PG now early in second.
Parker already has 9 pts after 1 quarter - 1 more than he had in season opener.
End of one: Bucks 24, 76ers 24. Parker leads Bucks with 9 points on 4-for-6 shooting, also 4 rebs.
Jabari with 9 points and 4 rebounds after first quarter. On pace for 36 and 16 (via mathematics).
Parker, Henson and Antekounmpo showing their potential.
Mayo 3 from corner off Giannis assist gives Bucks a 22-19 lead late in first.
Bucks sprinting the ball up the court every time right now. Enjoyable.
Best Bucks crowd since playoffs vs Atlanta several years ago. Very engaged and vociferous.
Kendall Marshall comes in for Knight - first appearance of season for Marshall. Bucks trailing 13-9.
Just pondering what Nerlens and AD would have been like together in New Orleans. Good lord.
Jabari's first shot at home is a triple that hits bottom. Love it!
Bucks > Other Halloween Things
"One day soon I hope to be standing in a new arena ... and we'll say it all started tonight." Wes Edens addressing crowd at home opener.
Big-time ovation for Jason Kidd in pre-game.
Disappointed that Bucks' game ops decided to use Imperial March for Sixers intros rather than Benny Hill theme.
The Boston chapter of the Bucks bandwagon is now operational (albeit with a cramped backseat). http://t.co/5eduph2AgM
Brown also said former Bucks player Luc Mbah a Moute should see some time off bench tonight. He did not play in 76ers season opener at Indy.
76ers coach Brett Brown said he can't wait for all-rookie matchup at PF: Nerlens Noel vs. Jabari Parker.
Bucks lineup for home opener same as Wednesday: Knight, Dudley, Middleton, Parker, Sanders.
FWIW: Knight's RFA cap hold next summer will be ~$9 million. So signing extension above that would have reduced cap room dollar for dollar.
Source indicates extension talks end between Bucks and Brandon Knight's agent. Knight will be RFA after current season.
What costume you wearing to Bucks gm tonight? At 3:45 pm we give a few suggestions on The Big 920AM.
Gary Neal and Caron Butler started (and shot 6/19) the last time the Bucks had a home opener. Related: 12 months is a long time.
Official attendance at last year's Bucks opener: 16,076. Sounds like it will be 18,717 tonight...let's do this, Milwaukee.
Snowflakes on Halloween?!!!!!! Lol
