Jazz had 15 blocked shots - including 6 by C Rudy Gobert in 104-82 win at Denver on Friday. Bucks in SLC tonight - 12 straight Ls in Utah.
Halfcourt shot update: Zach Randolph is 2-3 on shots from halfcourt and beyond this season. Everyone else in the NBA combined is 3-293.
Kidd on loss to Lakers: "36 points in the fourth; you can't have that happen. Especially after we got a lead ... We got out of character."
Bucks F Jared Dudley had X-ray taken on left knee after game. He said it was kneecap that gave him trouble last season with Clippers.
Lakers win third straight and Bucks open western trip with 101-93 loss at Staples. Had 11-point lead in third but faltered in fourth.
Bucks needed a lot of luck to beat Lakers in Milwaukee. Probably got what they deserved tonight.
Pretty sure all of Bayless FT misses this year are in the fourth quarter.
Lin clobbers Giannis on the head, Davis with the block. OK.
Bucks closing lineup is 1/8 from three tonight. We may be having this conversation again soon.
Ellington 14 in fourth after going scoreless in first 3 quarters. Now 6 of 13 and 2 of 6 from 3.
Ellington on fire and Lakers lead 92-86.
Bucks left hottest guy in gym and Ellington drains a 3.
Staples Center crowd was quiet but into it now for final 5 minutes.
Lakers up 85-83 as Ellington scored twice on break.
Awful shot from Bayless sets up the Laker runout.
Ellington 3-pointer over Ilyasova brings Lakers within 77-76 and Kidd calls a timeout w/9:15 left.
Bucks lead 72-65 after three quarters. Giannis 11-7-4. Ilyasova and Middleton 10 pts each.
Joey Crawford even looks good giving a T for a defensive 3-second violation. Does it with gusto.
I'm enjoying the Lakers' Ryan Kelly-based offense.
I'm enjoying the "Not settling for jump shots" version of MCW.
MCW scores on pair of bank shots, then finds Giannis on break and he is fouled. Hits 1 of 2 FTs. Bucks up 54-47.
HT: Bucks 47, Lakers 45. Plumlee 6 points off bench and big spark in second quarter. Giannis 8 points and Bayless with 7.
Make it a 21-4 run as officials add a point after reviewing Ennis shot - ruled a 3 not a 2.
Bucks went on 20-4 run capped by crazy tip-in by Giannis where he reached way back. Plumlee had a block called a goaltend - Kidd not happy.
Stu Lantz got really excited about a step-back 3 from Ellington...which missed, because step-backs are not good shots.
Then Giannis with long strides for a layup and Bucks within 34-33. Lakers coach Scott with quick timeout.
Miles Plumlee making an impact since coming off bench, forcing a goaltend by Davis and scoring on a hook shot off his own miss.
Ed Davis offensive rebound gives Lakers 30-22 lead. He had 20 rebs. in first matchup with Bucks earlier this month.
Bucks trail 24-18 after first quarter. Made just 6 of 23 shots (26.1%). Middleton with 5 rebs and 4 points. Jordan Clarkson 7 pts for LA.
Whenever the Bucks have a start like this I can't help but wonder "Shouldn't this happen more often?"
Kidd calls a timeout after Giannis turnover leads to easy basket for Boozer. Lakers 14, Bucks 6.
Boozer fell right into Ilyasova's trap. Charging foul. Lakers lead 10-6 and Bucks are 2 for 10 from field so far.
Middleton scraped his elbow in fall to floor and officials take a timeout.
Bucks have missed first 4 shots and trail 6-0.
Game started but clock did not. Stoppage. Bucks won tip.
Bucks-Lakers soon set to tip off. Bucks in white jerseys tonight and Lakers in their Hollywood Nights black jerseys.
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.

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.
