    Semi-Relevant Trivia:

    In his first season on the Bucks' bench, Larry Drew has managed
    an impressively awful .196 (11-45) winning percentage - good
    enough for dead last in Bucks' coaching history. Nowhere to go
    but up, I s'pose. Which of the following coaches has the best
    winning percentage in Milwaukee Bucks' franchise history?

    A. Larry Costello
    B. Del Harris
    C. George Karl
    D. Don Nelson
    E. Scott Skiles

    BrewHoop:
    Eric Buenning: Pacers trio too much for Bucks to overcome

    The Bucks pulled out all the stops to make this Y2K night special (and it really was),
    but the Pacers were simply too much to handle down the stretch, leaving the night just
    shy of perfect.


    Box Score

    The Bucks paid homage to their Y2K days tonight in every possible way they could
    imagine, but couldn't grab the win like they were accustomed to doing so back then,
    falling to the Indiana Pacers, 110-100.

    A night stacked with so much "off-court" entertainment (which I'll get to later) was
    surprisingly matched with on-court ferocity from both teams. Indiana set the tone
    early, not allowing the Bucks to get anything clean underneath the rim or in the
    paint at all en route to a 44-22 lead midway through the second quarter. Thankfully,
    Brandon Knight played through the heel laceration that kept him out of Thursday's
    loss and picked up the Milwaukee slack with 20 of the team's first 33 points en route
    to a 30-point night. Driving with reckless abandon against the league's best defense,
    Knight was key in willing the Bucks back into the game and slashing the Indiana lead
    to a more manageable 51-39 margin at the half.

    Knight picked up right where he left off to start the third, with Khris Middleton and
    O.J. Mayo also finding their range to bring the game to within five on multiple
    occasions. However, the Pacers' stars stepped up when they needed them most, and
    Indiana started to deal blow after blow that the Bucks eventually could not keep up
    with. Paul George (32p/5r), Lance Stephenson (24/9r/8a--15p in the 4th), and David
    West (30p/7r/5a) were simply too much for the Bucks to control, offsetting a rough
    offensive outing from Roy Hibbert (1/9 fg, 4 pts). Credit Zaza Pachulia for using his
    physicality to keep Hibbert off balance, though the Bucks ultimately couldn't stop
    anyone else as Indiana bounced back from a disappointing loss in Minnesota on
    Wednesday to win their East-best 42nd game of the season.

    Observations:

    It would be rude to not put Brandon Knight first, because he honestly played a pretty
    stellar game. He faded just a little bit towards the end of the third quarter, but a
    30p/8a/5r performance is nothing worth throwing stones at. As we've talked about so
    many times in these threads, Knight can look like he's forcing the issue a little bit. On
    nights like these though, he was really the only guard gutsy enough to navigate his
    way through the trees in an effort to get himself and others going. He was relentless
    all night and his energy rubbed off considerably on a few of his teammates. Did I
    mention the part where he did not turn the ball over once? That was pretty neat.

    Giannis had terrible match-ups for the majority of the night--Paul George turned him
    around a handful of times--but still manged to come away with a respectable 8p/6r
    line. There was a moment...CONTINUE READING AT BREWHOOP

    Hope Carmelo does us a solid and scores 60 and beats Miami. Need to win all of these bunnies to finish off ahead of Miami down the stretch.

    Game seems a bit chippy for being the best team in the NBA vs the worst. I'm glad Sanders is out.
