Bucks steamroll Golden State



As bad as the Bucks have been this season, there is no way you will beat them if you play no defense and you get poor production from your frontline starters. The Golden State Warriors proved this point on Tuesday night in front of a sparse Bradley Center gathering, as the Bucks destroyed them, 122-101.

Check out the Bucks Diary Eff48 boxscore below. It tells you all you need to know. The Bucks top 5 players (I only include those who log at least 20 minutes of action) all scored above a 32.00. That's incredible production. Meanwhile, the Warriors frontline starters tallied very weak numbers, with starting center Biedrins scoring only a 6.80 (substitute Josh Powell's 54.85 is a bit of an aberration as he only played 21 minutes, and a lot of them in junk time).

The Bucks perimeter players were also free to bomb 3 pointers at will on Tuesday night, and Andrew Bogut completely dominated the overhyped (by FSN, at least) Latvian Andres Biedrins.

Redd looks fine

Michael Redd is proving I should keep my medical opinions to myself. After it looked as though he was in great pain against the Knicks on Friday night, he's looked as spry as can be against the Sixers and then again last night against the Warriors. He was magnificent in both games. In the process he's made me look like Dr. Nick Riviera.

Bell surging

Charlie Bell also continues his second half surge, with a terrific game. He seems to play off Redd extremely well. When he gets both feet set and is able to launch his jumpshot unhindered, he gets great rotation on the ball and is much more accurate.
