Wizards lost sixth in a row tonight, dropping an 89-81 decision at Philly.
Bucks can move into fifth spot in East with a victory over Lakers tonight at Staples.
Hello. Bucks are now tied for 5th in the East. Wizards just lost in Philadelphia.
"Last time we played them, they had a lot of offensive rebounds they capitalized on. Before we can run, we've got to be able to rebound."
More Kidd: "First, we've got to rebound the ball. We've got to get out and run and put pressure on their defense ...
Kidd said rebounding a key vs. Lakers tonight. When teams played in Mke on 2-4, Lakers outrebounded Bucks, 53-35, and Ed Davis had 20 rebs.
Kidd also saying this morning that MCW's minutes will gradually increase but will not play big minutes yet.
Going back to hoops, coach Kidd said this am that O.J. Mayo will be out again tonight vs. Lakers. Resting right hamstring injury.
It was scene where Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed fell into pool while dancing the Charleston. Built in 1939, it still works. Called Swim Gym.
Site of Bucks shootaround Fri. am - Beverly Hills HS. Famous dance scene in "It's A Wonderful Life" filmed here. http://t.co/w1UMpHO2kt
Students at Beverly Hills HS trying to sneak peek at Bucks practice but being told by school security to "go to class."
If you're wondering, Jimmy Butler is averaging league-high 39.2 minutes.
How times have changed: not one NBA player ave. 40 minutes a game this season. Wilt ave 46 or more minutes 7 times.
What do you see? http://t.co/sEAFqTMLz6
RIP to Early Lloyd 🙏
Earl Lloyd, the first African-American to play in the NBA has passed away. The NBA family "will strive to always honor his memory." RIP
Bucks @ LAL tonight at 9:30 on FSW. One scenario: if Bucks win and Phil upsets Washington, Milwaukee would be 5th in East.
RIP to Earl Lloyd. Thanks for opening the doors for us on the hardwood. A true hero.
White and gold. http://t.co/nmIcVolMyP
LA what's good?!!!!! Man I miss this weather!!! Lol
Carter, a 6-1 pg, will visit Xavier and then MU. UConn, Miss., Memphis, Temple also in mix.
MU coach Steve Wojciechowski expected to visit today with NJ prep standout Traci Carter.
BTW: Khris Middleton ranks 6th in plus-minus, 1 spot behind LeBron, 1 spot ahead of John Wall. Heady company.
FYI:, Brandon Knight (-0.68) ranks 195th in plus-minus; Carter-Williams (-1.58) is 275th.
If we all work together can we get the Sixers to loan the Wiz Brett Brown for the rest of the year? Let's right two wrongs.
Bucks within a half game of Wiz for 5th seed. HOW????
Review shows Canaan's shot was a 2, so Bucks lead 100-86 with 2:57 left.
Bucks lead dwindling - down to 13 or 14, depending on video review. Kidd brought Middleton back but MCW still on bench.
76ers cut deficit to 14 with 3:40 left. Might have to reinsert all the starters.
Kidd still has Greek Freak and Middleton in the game with Bucks up 21 with 4:03 left. Why?
Best-of-season 18 for Henson over here.
Bucks up 27 in 4th Q and Plumlee and JOB have yet to get off the bench. Obviously, Kidd is saving them for the next game.
Does anyone think Rajon Rondo will be a Maverick next season?
Holy crap Sidney is quoting SportVU data
End of 3: Bucks 82, 76ers 60. Middleton has 17 to lead Bucks. MCW in 18 minutes: 7 pts, 8 assists, 2 steals. Bayless 13 pts; Henson 11.
With MCW on Bucks, tonight's PGs for Philly are Isaiah Canaan and Ish Smith. Both arrived in last week.
MCW's eighth assist a beauty. Drove lane, reached back and found Middleton for open 3 in corner. Bucks lead 69-44.
I don't like jazz, but I would if Greg Foster hosted a three-hour jazz odyssey radio show.
Dudley, Ennis and Henson are tied for worst on the team in +/- tonight. They are each +12.
HT: Bucks 61, 76ers 32. MCW with 6 points, 6 assists and 2 steals. You can see his court vision is outstanding.
MCW telling Giannis not to run away from him on break. Instead found Zaza for a bucket and 3-point play. Four assists for MCW. Make that 6.
Bucks currently +23 in points off turnovers and +24 in...well, points. 17 turnovers for Philly.
MCW passes to rim - pinpoint pass to a covered receiver. Bayless makes catch and dunk.
MCW checking back in with 4:59 left in second. Ennis to bench. Nice hand for MCW again.
Henson with 9 points and 5 rebounds in 10 minutes - 4 for 4 shooting.
I don't know if Thomas Robinson will ever be a good basketball player, but he could be a phenomenal slamball player.
If the 76ers defeat the Bucks 20 times this evening, they will pass them in the standings. Starting to feel unlikely.
Playing defense against the Sixers is kind of like playing in the secondary against Cutler. SO MANY TURNOVERS.
Bayless 5 for 6 and has 11 points off bench. Philly with 14 TOs leading to 21 points already.
Bucks have 16 points in paint and 9-2 advantage in fast-break points.
Not sure there's been a moment tonight when Nerlens wasn't shoving Henson in the back.
Robinson wasted no time in picking up 2 fouls. Just went to bench.
Thomas Robinson in the game at foul line. Brown said he would play after arriving from airport around game time. Missed both.
End of one: Bucks 29, 76ers 12. Bucks shot 54% in first quarter; 76ers at 25% (5 of 20). Giannis played full quarter: 3 pts, 4 rebs, 4 asts.
Bucks already have 17-point lead after one quarter. This game could use a running clock.
The Sixers are just pathetic; Brett Brown, a good guy and good coach, deserves better.
Bayless enters for MCW with 5:50 left in first.
Hi. Michael Carter-Williams has twice as many points as the 76ers.
Nice start for MCW - already with 6 points and 2 assists. Just got a steal and dunked off Ilyasova assist. Bucks 12, 76ers 3.
Carter-Williams' first basket as a Buck is a breakaway dunk.
First MCW basket a dunk on break from Giannis. Appropriate,
Ex-Buck and current 76er Luc Mbah a Moute said Rose "is my favorite player."
MCW got an assist on first basket of night by Ersan Ilyasova.
Players in both the Bucks and 76ers locker rooms were genuinely bothered by the news of Rose's latest knee injury.
Zaza Pachulia starting at center tonight, not John Henson.
MCW makes his Bucks debut vs Sixers tonight. OJ Mayo will sit out for a night of rest. Tip at 7:10 on FSW.
