Milwaukee Outpaces Indiana

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IFebruary 11, 2009

Does this team look like they're on a roll right now or what?

The Bucks took over in the second half and went on to out-shoot the Indiana Pacers in a 122-110 win. Milwaukee (26-29) just looks smooth on offense right now. They have kicked it up a notch, utilizing some run-and-gun. It seems a little unorthodox, coming from Coach Scott Skiles and all, but nonetheless shows that he can adapt playing style with personnel.

Sessions has manned the point extremely effective thus far. His ability to draw and kick, as well as getting to the line, has made him a tough player to defend.

His defense leaves a little bit to be desired, but he more than makes up for it on the offensive end. Maybe a little reckless at times, as he does end up on the floor a lot, but he hustles and hasn't taken a whole lot of stupid shots since getting in the starting lineup.

Charlie Bell had a huge first half off the bench. In fact, the Bucks bench shined tonight. Newcomers Bogans and Gill were once again important, stepping it up with big plays in the second half.

Richard Jefferson led the way with 32 points, and Bell scored 20 off the bench. Charlie Villanueva added 17 and Sessions hit 15. Sessions also added 17 assists and 7 rebounds. That's worthy enough for TBC's Player of the Game.

Ahhhh..... there's the good stuff.

With Milwaukee now owning a full game lead for the eighth spot, the All-Star break could be a good thing or a bad thing. Does it hurt Milwaukee's momentum? Or does it allow Milwaukee rest up? I mean, this team has now averaged 122 over the last three games. I guess we'll find out Tuesday the 17th at 6:30 in Detroit.

Enjoy the All-Star break, come back for the LIVE BLOG!!!!
