Festive atmosphere near BMO Harris BC as Badgers fans stream in for NCAA game. Then Bucks-Warriors at 7:30. Twinbill of hoops.
Good news for Bucks fans wanting to see Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. They are not being rested by the Pacific Division champs.
Warriors announce Draymond Green (rest) and Andre Iguodala (rest) will not play tonight vs. Bucks.
Random Question: if you could have any car, what car would it be? But it has to cost under 200k lol
I'm told one of the reasons Diamond Stone chose Maryland is how coach Mark Turgeon developed center Alex Len, now with the Phoenix Suns.
6-10 Diamond Stone, arguably best prep basketball player from Wisconsin, has verbally committed to Matyland.
Random... Culinary Arts is the topic. MATC vs. the arts institute of Wisconsin. Which is better?
Milwaukee I have some questions
"...Please don't rain on my parade , because this float was built for you .."
Chris Johnson back with Utah after Bucks did not re-sign him. Johnson had pair of 10-day deals w/Bucks and had 10-day deal w/Jazz earlier.
Great win tonight fellas! BucksNation
BUCKS ESCAPE! Kidd's guys defend the arc and breathe sigh of relief when Hill's potential tying 3 rims out. YAY WISCONSIN SPORTS NIGHT!
Key of the game: Pacers never had more points than the Bucks tonight.
George Hill's 3 spins out and Bucks appear to be on way to win. Zaza defended at arc. Bayless with 1 of 2 and Bucks survive, 111-107.
Just promise me you won't foul them on another three, OK Bucks? I wish I was kidding.
Giannis misses 2nd after hitting first and Bucks have 110-107 lead with 11.6 seconds left. Pacers timeout.
Giannis misses the second and Pacers have chance to tie, which they presumably will because WHY WON'T THEY MISS A THREE
Pacers finally miss a three, and of course Middleton can't handle the rebound. This game will be the death of me (and my laptop).
Call reversed and it's Pacers ball with 32.1 left.
Replay review to see if Middleton knocked ball out of bounds or Scola tipped it out of his hands along sideline near midcourt.
Dear Jerryd: It's not all about you.
Carter-Williams misses FT and then commits foolish foul on Watson's 3-pt attempt. Bucks 109-105 with 1:26 left.
MCW fouls out for second straight game. He fouls Watson on three-point attempt with 1:31 left and Bucks up 6. Watson goes 2 for 3.
MCW fouls out on a three point attempt. Of course.
Bayless with the floater, then jumps the handoff to get the jumpball...which he wins, natch.
King of the jump ball forces another one. Bayless with someone his own size and wins tip from Watson.
Ilyasova with career-best 34 pts after 2 FTs.
Next time the Pacers hit a three I'm throwing my laptop out the window.
Ilyasova two off career high, now has 30 points on 12-of-13 shooting. Bucks 94, Pacers 86 with 7:34 left.
Teams fouling on basically every possession at this point. It is not enjoyable to watch.
Ersan now with 28 points on 11/12 shooting.
Bucks frustrated by this officiating crew, just saying.
Bucks could have been called for about three fouls on that possession, then Bayless finally does on silly handcheck on perimeter. Lordy.
Bucks have 4 fouls in 90 seconds. Fouling in second half has been absurd.
Make that four team fouls in 1:30.
Three teams fouls already early in fourth.
Giannis starts 4th with driving scoop shot, then the pull-up jumper. 15 pts on 7/10 shooting after very quiet start.
Biggest Lead: Bucks 23 Pacers 0
Ilyasova and Pachulia back to start fourth quarter - Bucks with 85-74 lead.
Mayo finally hits a three, and of course Miles sticks a 27-footer in response. 85-74 after three after foul-plagued third.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel takes Solomon Hill out because player was angry over foul. Hill still gets T'd up on bench. Bucks 82, Pacers 67.
Giannis finds Duds for the open 3, but he Favres it -- just slips out of his hands and flies back out of bounds. How things are going for J.
Report is Spooner left game in first half to have his knee looked at. He just returned.
Dudley and Bayless back in game after timeout.
Hibbert's tired, so he throws a blatant shoulder into Henson going up for a shot, then complains. Related: I've never liked Roy Hibbert.
Now Bill Spooner is back, just taking off his jacket at scorer's table.
MCW's used post ups to get up three straight good looks (Henson make, Giannis make, Henson miss).
Thirteen fouls called already in third quarter not halfway through.
Two refs but plenty of whistles.
Giannis with the long jumper from the corner.
The Bucks have been bad at a lot of things the past few weeks, but I love how they always pass ahead to guys. If you run, you get rewarded.
Scola fouls MCW on dunk attempt and it is being reviewed. Scola and Bucks bench exchanged some pleasantries. Ruled flagrant-1 foul.
Ref Bill Spooner not on court for second half.
Pacers outscore Bucks in second quarter, 32-25. Indiana is 8 of 15 from 3-point range.
HT: Bucks 59, Pacers 47. Ilyasova with 22 on 9-of-10 shooting. Miles tops Pacers with 17 points.
Roy Hibbert pretty close to having one of those 0 of everything Roy Hibbert games.
HOBO ERSAN IS DEAD LONG LIVE ERSANITY http://t.co/DxW3kWBM3R
Ilyasova did not cool off while on the bench. Scores underneath, then another 3. MCW picks Lavoy Allen and dunks. Bucks 50, Pacers 34.

Bucks' 19-pt lead after 1st q is now 10 midway through 2nd period.
Dudley passes up an open 3 to pass it to MCW, whose three gets caught by a heavy gust of wind.
Bucks had big lead at 34-11 but Pacers coming back behind Miles, who just hit back-to-back 3s. Bucks 41, Pacers 31 with 7:02 left in half.
CJ Miles must be terrible whenever I'm not watching, because he's a beast whenever I do.
Pacers went on a 10-0 run but Bucks have responded with 2 baskets from Henson and a 3-pointer by Bayless. Bucks 41, Pacers 23.
Jared Dudley (back) said he hasn't been given any restriction on minutes for tonight's game. Says he's still not 100 percent, though.
End of one: Bucks 34, Pacers 15. Ilyasova has 17 points, career best for a quarter, on 7-of-8 shooting (3 of 4 triples). Bucks 14 of 19 FGs.
Bucks have 10 assists. Pacers 11 pts.
Mayo and Bayless are first Bucks subs.
Ersan Ilyasova is off to a torrid start with 14 points in the Bucks' 29-11 lead over Indy. And there's still 2:07 left in period.
