I hope we take this game.....2 seasons ago in the Milwaukee paper when their sports writer wrote that the "Bucks will probably win tonight b/c.....well they're playing the Grizzlies." I just want the Bucks to do horrible ever since I saw that comment. Fear the Bear.

Dude, you've seriously become one of the most reactionary/negative posters on the board. Chill.

Tonight was a bad loss. But it was just that: TONIGHT's loss. This is a new game and is completely unrelated to the Rockets game. As I recall, almost EVERYONE was saying we were going to get blown out by the Lakers after the LAC loss. Did it happen? No.

We've been great against the East this year. Milwaukee isn't that tough of a team. Contain Jennings and Ellis and we're good. Would be nice have an Agent Zero sighting this game though...

My confidence of that is low after getting lit up by Dragic and Lee. Conley is also nursing a tender ankle, so this is going to be tough.

Ilyasova is out with injury right? Or else, he'll be starting. Okay, but Grizz always do worse against injured teams.

Tought game I know it is....Bucks are a little no name team these past years but now that they have Monta up there. It's gonna get tough for sure especially with Rudy's 3PT shooting lately...as matter of fact ALL of our 3PT shooting lately.

Good point.

We NEED to do one of two things when we're playing a team/player(s) that can hit a lot of 3's:

a.) Make a bunch of 3's and match them. Or...

b.) Defend the 3pt line very well.

Unfortunately, it seems hard for us to do either of those things though. But there is always a third option:

c.) Hope and pray that the other team misses. :P

Monta plays very well against the Grizzles. Jenkins can heat up fast too:). Not sure what are the keys to a victory here.

Milwaukee's back court will beat our back court silly. Conley's hurt, Pargo is uhhh Pargo, Arenas is....... Where is Arenas?? And then there's OJ with his pistols shooting blanks.

This is a loss. What you are witnessing is a total meltdown of what once looked like a pretty good bet for the playoffs 2 weeks ago.

PS: I see Las Vegas odds-makers have taken note of the Grizz shoddy play. They have made the Bucks 2 point favorites. The Rockets were only a 1 point favorite over the Grizz in yesterday's game.

Milwaukee is a sub .500 team with a 24-27 record. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Arenas is smart, at least we can't blame him for the losses. They are piling up:( The head man always have to take the fall) and that's Coach Lionel "Stubborn" Hollins
