Following this sdsu game on my phone is torture! Way to nervous
Fun fact: Brandon Knight is two months younger than Michael Carter-Williams and six months older than Victor Oladipo.
Bucks win 105-98 on strength of 37-point final quarter. Knight scores 24 and Middleton 21.
Really weird night for Tobias: 11 points in first 5 minutes, then 0 in next 21. Side note: bringing him off the bench seems silly.
Dumb. Dumb. Magic foul Sessions with game on line. Sessions is 90% FT shooter as Buck. Drains both attempts.
Another benefit of Bucks' perverse incentives: if you jinx them by prematurely assuming a win...well, whatever.
One of my not favorite things: dudes who won't pass in chase/foul situations b/c they really want those FTs. Related: Ersan misses 2.
The $8M man - O.J. Mayo - plays a whopping 4 minutes tonight.
Ilyasova misses 2 FTs. Just entered for Henson and was fouled off inbounds pass from Giannis. Now Magic calls a timeout.
Nelson hits a 3 and 2 FTs by Afflalo pull Magic within 97-91 with 46.3 left. Not over yet folks.
Bucks fans may disagree on the value of winning, but at least Tobias didn't end up murdering our souls again tonight.
John Henson will actually have 30-plus minutes tonight. I kid you not.
Bucks about to win - much to the delight of the hundred 76ers fans.
Rare sight: Fans leaving because Bucks are ahead by 14 with less than 3 minutes left.
Giannis hits 3 off Knight assist and Bucks lead 95-81.
29-point swing for Bucks. From down 18 to up 11. Enjoyable.
Bucks lead 82-79 with 6:33 remaining. MKE has 44-22 advantage in points in paint.
Knight now 9 for 22 after a couple misses.
Brandon Knight is killing it ... Dunks, treys. Has 24 points, 5 assists early 4th q.
Knight has scored last 11 points for Bucks, on 11-2 run. Huge one-handed slam on break off Sessions feed from fb bomb from QB Giannis.
4th quarter: Brandon Knight 9, Magic 0
Giannis with the home run pass to Sessions who drops it off for the Knight tomahawk. Beautiful.
After 3 quarters: Magic 71, Bucks 68. Ilyasova with 16 and 11; Knight has 15 pts. Henson has 10-5 off bench.
Brandon Knight and Victor Oladipo taking turns proving that they're each really, really fast.
Giannis struggling so far tonight. Just 1 points and 2 TOs in 13 minutes. Took first shot there and missed on layup try.
Vucevic with 3 fouls in this quarter.
Almost 4 minutes gone in third quarter and Bucks yet to score. Orlando goes on 7-0 run for 58-45 lead.
This Bucks-Magic matchup is so bad that even Bucks owner Herb Kohl took a pass on attending the game.
Tobias Harris is enjoying sweet season: ave 15 pts and 7.3 Rebs. However, he is just 22% on treys.
Bucks were 2 for 14 on 3s while Magic was 5 for 13. Knight 0 for 5 beyond arc and Ilyasova 1 of 4.
Harris leads Magic with 11 points and Arron Afflalo has 10. Magic shooting 51% to Bucks' 41%.
Brandon Knight has really done nice job of reducing turnovers. Zero in 1st half; just 4 in last 4 1/2 games.
Ilyasova leads Bucks with 14 but they trail 48-39 with 2:50 left in half.
Bucks lead Jameer Nelson 36-0.
Bucks getting back in it behind Knight and Sessions. Now trailing 41-34 with 5:20 left in second.
Oladipo left wide open for pair of 3s and he drained both.
I polled seven people at BC tonight who they wanted the Bucks to draft. All said Jabari
Tobias Harris has come to play against his old team. In just five minutes, Harris has 11 points against the Bucks as Orlando leads 31-13.
Harris again and has 11 points as Magic leads, 31-13. Bucks looking at another huge halftime deficit (see Saturday).
Harris shrugs off challenge from Giannis and converts offensive rebound. Also foul on Giannis. Harris already with 9 points,
Harris with 6 quick points after entering as sub and Magic leads Bucks, 24-13, after one quarter.
Orlando 18, MKE 11 with 2:46 left in first. Bucks are 5 of 19 from field and Magic is 8 of 13.
Not his favorite role, however.
Magic likes Harris' scoring off bench and he did well in that role vs. Spurs on Sunday. He scored 23 pts. in 32 minutes.
Kyle O'Quinn starting at forward for Magic and former Bucks player Tobias Harris coming off bench.
Not surprising that team going nowhere would completely abandon D to concentrate on O, but still weird to see Bucks scoring efficiently.
Bucks efficiency splits before all-star break: 96.5 off/106.6 def. Since all-star break 111.4 off/112.7 def!
That means John Henson to continue primarily as backup 5. Udoh would play at 4 and 5 when he returns, Drew said.
Ekpe Udoh is game-time decision for Bucks tonight vs. Orlando. Coach Larry Drew said Jeff Adrien will remain backup 4.
If Wiggins' body was in proportion to his neck, he'd be about 8'4" with talons that could take down a rhino.
I'm officially rooting for the Jazz/Kings to nip the Lakers/Celtics in lotto standings. Gotta stick with my small market brothers.
Embiid is Big 12 Defensive POY. Wiggins is Freshman of year.
Interesting. Iowa state's Melvin Ejim takes Big 12 Player of Year in coaches vote over Wiggins.
It's crazy how great Mayweather is. Canelo had 0 chance to beat him but beatin the brakes off homie tonight
Bucks used to be down by 28 points. They are down by 3 points.
Wizards with 0.0 points in first 6 minutes of third quarter. 12-0 Bucks run.
Wizards showing no mercy, you might say.
Bucks lead Trevor Ariza 27-17 after first quarter.
If Wiggins had gone off for 40 a couple more times, would people still be downplaying the whole draft class? He's the bellwether, right?
