Tonight is probably a good indication of how the rest of this season is going to go. The Bucks took on a Grangerless Pacer team and lost 107-99. The Bucks are now 22-27 and tied for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
They had several opportunities to comeback but missed close shots at the end of the game by Alexander and Jefferson, missed free throws by Jefferson and a turnover by Charlie Bell helped end a Bucks surge. Milwaukee was down 20 at one point in the first half, but cut the deficit to two twice, before again letting the Pacers go on a run.
The Bucks had no rhythm and were completely out rebounded. T.J. Ford dropped 34, and looked like an all star.
Charlie V had 28 points and eight rebounds before fouling out. A worthy effort, just not enough apparently.
Milwaukee plays at Toronto on Friday night at 6:00 pm. This really is a must win. And Bogut needs to get on the court soon, or we might as well play for Blake Griffin.
