Live Blog: Halftime Game One
The Bucks are down 43-37. They came out fast, but the Pistons caught them relatively easily. The Bucks are hanging around despite a poor shooting half. Amongst those particularly struggling are Bucks leader Michael Redd who is 3 for 11. Bobby Simmons hit his first shot, a three, and has done nothing since. Jamaal Magliore was actually playing very well when he got into foul trouble and had to go to the bench. Joe Smith, who was awful against Detroit in the regular season, has played well. Bogut is no longer a rookie, he has played extremely well. He showed creativity in his moves to the hoop against Rasheed Wallace, I'm thinking in particular of a beautiful left handed scoop. TJ Ford, though the box score doesn't show it, has played well. I like his pace and decision making and he has been aggressive going to the hole. Bell has played well also.
Problem: Rasheed Wallace is killing Bogut and Smith on the Detroit offensive end. He has 17 already. They have to slow him down.
I have to go.
