Silver lining in this Bucks loss?
The Bucks lost another close one on Wednesday. Those close games are evening out rapidly, aren't they?
But, I think there was a definite silver lining in last night's loss. In the absence of both Michael Redd and Mo Williams, F Bobby Simmons and F Jiri Welsch stepped up. Both had their best games in purple and green. I can't tell you how good that was to see.
Simmons was spectacular, shooting 10 for 19 and toting 26 points. THAT'S the guy we thought we signed. Perhaps his problem before was one of comfort -- he wasn't sure when to take shots and when to defer to Redd. If so, he needs to pretend Redd isn't out there and act like a one option. We need him to look for his offense.
Oh, and memo to TJ Ford: You're a distributor, not a scorer. You should never, ever take 10 or more shots in a game. You're killing us when you do.
One more thing: what happened to Bogut last night?
