HoopsHype Milwaukee Bucks twitter
Agree that Orlando crowd was "disconnected," as Schmitz says in story. Didn't even bother to boo Magic until it got really bad.
More Knight: "If I'm blessed enough to be picked by the Commissioner, I'll be more than proud to represent the city of Milwaukee."
Knight: "It's not going to take away from the season that I'm having. I'm just blessed to be in consideration."
Just talked to Knight in locker room. Will have quotes up in blog in a bit.
Charles Barkley said Dwyane Wade did not deserve all-star berth and said Knight, Korver or Jennings (now injured) would have been better.
feenin for some carryout right now
And about that earlier tweet, yes, Orlando streak is gone. Ended at 17 straight losses. But Kidd 1-1 with Bucks in Orlando.
Bucks win 115-100 and finish 3-game trip with a 2-1 record. For 2nd straight game, 7 players in double figures. Bayless leads with 19.
That's where JOB could have made me love him forever by coming in and knocking Dedmon on his ass. OPPORTUNITY SQUANDERED.
Magic has allowed 100 points or more in 11 straight games. Mayo scored on drive to give Bucks 101.
Upper deck at BMO Harris BC too cavernous. That will not be part of new plan.
I like Amway Center - modern, bright but a bit sterile. Would be nice for new Bucks arena to have cozy downstairs seating.
Bucks co-owner Wes Edens here tonight. Said took a tour of Amway Center, now in its 4th year.
End of 3: Bucks 96, Magic 71. Dudley 17, Knight 16, Middleton 15. Bayless did not play in third but still has 13.
Tobias Harris 1 for 9 so far.
Knight tried to take charge from Harris - no call but Harris came up hurting as Knight went to floor. Tobias coming back after timeout.
That 17-game losing streak in Orlando. Think its going, going .....
Magic made a run behind Vucevic inside, but Bucks quieting it with back-to-back 3s by Dudley and Knight. Bucks lead 83-62.
Hot breaking news: Bovada lists Greek Freak's odds of winning slam dunk contest at 3/1. Zach LaVine is favorite at 2/3.
HT: Bucks 59, Magic 44. Bayless leads with 13 pts; Dudley 9 and Henson and Middleton 8 each. Bucks shooting 48.9%. Oladipo w/14 for Magic.
Meanwhile Bucks with 54-38 lead with 2:50 left in half. Bayless stays hot with 11 points; Henson with 8 pts and 6 rebs.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will select replacement for any player unable to participate in All-Star Game. So will it be Knight for Wade?
Gutierrez with a steal, FT and assist on O'Bryant bucket late in first quarter. Bucks 28, Magic 18 after one.
Jorge touted as good defender and steals ball from Willie Green almost immediately.
Meanwhile Bucks have 25-17 lead late in first quarter. Jorge Gutierrez just checking for Bucks debut.
Spoelstra on Knight: "I think everybody views him as an all-star; he's having that kind of year."
Brandon Jennings, who was traded for Knight and Middleton, saying he thought Knight should be all-star. Very impressive.
Now Knight has chance to replace injured Wade on East roster.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he thought Knight was an all-star in pregame comments Tuesday. Wade talked about Knight, too.
Meanwhile Bucks dubious streak of years without an all-star now at 11.
Hard to believe both Bosh and Wade make All-Star Game.
But there will be groundswell for Korver to make it a Hawks quartet. Think Knight has limited chance to be a replacement pick.
Dwyane Wade picked for East all-stars but is injured and likely will be replaced. Bucks Brandon Knight left off squad.
Pachulia said calf tightened up on him late in first half in Miami and became too painful in third quarter when he went back on court.
Zaza Pachulia said he felt a "pop" during shootaround and had to quit. Said he thinks he will be out at most a week with right calf strain.
Well at least DMC didn't get snubbed for Mason Plumlee, eh?
Bucks coach Jason Kidd also has Kenyon Martin and Johnny O'Bryant as bigs off bench. Kidd again said Jorge Gutierrez will play vs. Magic.
Bucks will be without Zaza Pachulia (calf) and Ersan Ilyasova (groin) tonight vs. Magic. John Henson and Jared Dudley will start.
Brandon Knight having big impact on East playoff race: Wade strained hammy chasing him on Tues, Jennings tore Achilles defending him on Sat.
Phx I need your help! anybody have a hook up for 2 tics to the Phx Open this sat at the 16th hole?! Whoever gets me I will hook u up big!!!
Ersan out tonight (groin). Zaza has a calf injury and is ??? Bucks-Magic at 6:00 CST
Just great news to hear Gansler back home. Said he talked to Tony Meola today and many from '90 WC team called in with best wishes.
Gansler joked about having some problems with his left foot. Said soccer folks told hm: "The problem is your left foot. You never had one."
Just had a great talk with coach Bob Gansler, who is back home and recovering from stroke he had Saturday. A true soccer legend in the USA.
Kidd said Gutierrez will play tonight vs. Magic. "He thinks defense first, and offense comes second. He finds open guys and gets to basket."
Kidd on Gutierrez: "Great kid, plays hard, understands our system. Defensive-minded guy. We'll see how he does in these 10 days."
Did I mention Bucks have lost 17 games in a row in Orlando? Have not won here since 2004.
Gutierrez glad to be reunited w/Kidd and coaches he had in Brooklyn. "It's a little bit comfortable, not too much," he said. "I'm excited."
Jorge Gutierrez w/Bucks after signing 10-day deal. "I'm happy to be back in the NBA and this is a really good situation for me," he said.
Pachulia was injured in game in Miami on Tuesday and walked through plays at shootaround. "We'll see how he feels game time," Kidd said.
Also, Ersan Ilyasova (sore right groin) did not take part in shootaround and is out tonight vs. Magic.
Zaza Pachulia has calf injury and questionable for tonight's game vs. Orlando. Coach Kidd said Henson will start if Z unavailable.
“..Silence is a text easy to misread..“
Is Kyle Korver and All Star this yr?!!!!!! As a role player in the NBA I speak for all of us lol I hope he gets in
A team source confirmed that Kenyon Martin will sign with Bucks for the rest of the season. His second 10-day contract expires at midnight.
Bobby Wood hasn't scored in 2 years for his German 2nd division club. Is picking him Jurgen's way of making Jozy feel better about himself?
Heat G Mario Chalmers received flop warning from NBA for action during Tuesday game against Bucks in Miami.
Now if B Knight chosen for All-Star Game, Bucks will have representation all 3 days in NYC.
As expected, Giannis named to World team in Rising Stars game. Wiggins, Exum, Schroder, Mirotic, Gobert, Dieng, Olynyk, Adams among others.
“..I’m in her ear one time, tryna tell her how I rhyme.. She heard it all.. I know she heard it all…“
Kenyon Martin was a teammate of Jason Kidd; Jorge Gutierrez played for Kidd. Need we ask who's calling the shots for Bucks these days?
