"This team is really playing hard," Casey said of Bucks. "So if we don't come out to take care of business, they can embarrass you."
Casey said he warned his team not to look ahead to road game in Cleveland on Saturday. "To me this team is just as dangerous as Cleveland."
Casey on Jabari: "He does a great job of body-hunting, getting into your body and drawing contact. He reminds me of a young Carmelo."

Whatever Cuban is paying Carlisle isn't enough. What an exceptional coach. Bucks made run at Carlisle and hired Scott Skiles.
I wonder how hard Nets GM Billy King laughed after seeing Jason Kidd fall into Larry Sanders' arms after BKnight's blown layup?
Kidd said the loudest he ever heard an NBA arena was in Game 7 of Brooklyn-Toronto series last spring at Air Canada Centre.
Larry Sanders said he is fully healed from left thigh injury. He first hurt it in Orlando last Friday and re-injured it later.
"At shootaround he looked all right," Jason Kidd said of Giannis. "We'll see how he feels in a couple hours."
Giannis Antetokounmpo went through shootaround and will be game-time decision in Toronto tonight.
BTW: Bucks are 3-0 since Rodriguez talk.
Greivis played in Cole Field House right?
kick rocks, slow motion
Granger's rapid decline reminds me of Redd, which reminds me that it's a fine line between all-star scorer and washed up bench dude.
