Last 20 games or so important for Udoh, who is in final year of his rookie contract after being selected 6th overall by Warriors in 2010.
Udoh (right knee) has not played since Feb. 10 vs. Boston and will miss 10th straight game tonight as Bucks play Pelicans.
Ersan Ilyasova was at Bucks shootaround today in New Orleans but no word yet if facing any discipline for incident vs. Kings on Wed.
Bucks forward Ekpe Udoh working out after shootaround today in New Orleans. May be able to play Saturday vs. Wizards.
Even @Twitter falls victim to the complement/compliment mistake. http://t.co/fjR2TblViu
N we going to New Orleans tom, might as well wait n get an official cut
After a night of computer glitches, Bucks final corrected to 116-102 loss, not 117 as previously recorded. Tough night all around.
Bout to get that Boosie fade
Bucks lose 117-102 if scoreboard is correct. Not a sure thing tonight.
Giannis not playing in garbage time because SCREW YOU PEOPLE WHO COME TO BUCKS GAMES
The correct Tony Mitchell, now playing basketball.
Thomas exits with 25 points.
I was waiting for those Ts. Double tech on Middleton and Thomas. Then Thomas ejected by Scott Wall. First Ts from Crawford.
Ersan getting frustrated and just throws Reggie Evans to the ground on the missed shot. I figured it'd be Zaza, but...
Not sure what score is but it doesn't matter now. Bucks are behind by 24, scoreboard says, and this one is over. Kings 107-83 I think.
Bucks open fourth on a 9-2 run with Sessions just scoring on break. Sac coach Malone calls a timeout. Last time he did Kings responded.
Giannis confidently strokes the catch-and-shoot triple from the top. Enjoying the regularity of seeing that.
Scoreboard goofy all night but score apparently is 96-74 after three.
Gay drives with no resistance and lays it in to end third. Kings 95, Bucks 74. Thomas with 24 points and Gay with 22.
Imagine a world in which OJ Mayo and Brandon Knight didn't make lazy perimeter passes that turned into opponent breakouts.
Bucks defense not allowing them to even make a run. Kings lead 85-67 late in third.
Rudy Gay having his way with Middleton and now Giannis back in game.
Cousins on fire in third but picks up fourth foul on Knight drive. Evans replaces him.
Zaza Pachulia trying to score in the restricted area is the Charlie Brown-and-the-football of the NBA.
Knight drives and kicks for open jumpers on B2B possessions. Doesn't create dunks for guys off P&R, but he will do that.
Knight had 15 pts. in first half for Bucks but not much help.
HT: Kings 61, Bucks 48. Cousins is just 1 for 6 but has 5 points-5 rebs.-5 assists. Thomas has 12 points.
Kings beat writer Jason Jones told me before game how well McCallum was playing. No kidding. Rookie guard with 11 points so far.
The Bucks let Cousins bring the ball up the floor and play as a PG, finding McCallum for layup. Drew takes a timeout as Bucks trail by 9.
Ramon Sessions now shooting 80.0 % (4-5) on threes for Bucks. This raises his career percentage.
After one, Kings 28, Bucks 26.
Bob Brainerd doing Bucks PA for second straight game. He says "Bucks foul on No. 34. Giannis." I like it. First name-basis.
Giannis with the beautiful gyro-step on Gay for the lay-in. Loved the change of pace.
Kings take a 21-16 lead as PG Isaiah Thomas now with 9 points.
Proud papa: Ex-Wisconsin asst and current Detroit HC Ray McCallum on hand to see his son, Ray, a rookie guard for Kings.
Before game, Larry Sanders met with his teammates for 1st time since having surgery. Smiles all around.
Too much Joey Crawford for me in the opening minutes. Wow.
Bucks' hold on worst record is tenuous: play Sac, NO, NY, Orlando, Charlotte in next 2 weeks - all potential wins.
Tobin Heath and Kristie Mewis played off bench. No appearance for former UWM star Sarah Hagen. Next game is Friday vs. Sweden.
Leroux scored only U.S. goal but Japan found equalizer in 83rd minute on windy day in Parchal, Portugal.
Christen Press and Sydney Leroux started at forwards for U.S. women today in 1-1 draw with Japan in Algarve Cup opener.
.. Join me Saturday 10am - 12pm at 6724 W. Greenfield Ave, West Allis, WI 53214 for @Villa_Westallis Grand Opening
BU!!!! Also how can I get my hands on those big ahhhh bear heads???
"Now we've got one. And that's a good feeling."
"I think every guy on our team would admit we haven't had a pit bull on this team," Bucks coach Larry Drew said of newcomer Jeff Adrien.
