Magic-Bucks: Milwaukee Fizzles Against Orlando

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst INovember 25, 2008

Oh, how my title rules, in sharp contrast to the Buck's relationship with the Orlando Magic.

Yeah, it would have been nice for the Bucks to get a win down in Orlando and move to .500, but that just wasn't going to happen. The Bucks are still a little shorthanded, with both Luke Ridnour and Michael Redd out with injuries.

The good thing about Ridnour being hurt, however, is more minutes for Ramon Sessions. But you take that with the bad, which is more minutes for Tyronn Lue.

And to make matters worse, the Bucks lost Andrew Bogut in the third quarter with a knee injury.

But the thing I like the most about the Bucks this year is that even though they couldn't come away with the victory, they leave no doubt that they surely gave it their best shot.

Tonight, they trailed the Magic for basically the entire game, but pulled to within three when Richard Jefferson hit a jumper with 24 seconds left. But the Magic, one of the East's best teams, were able to come away with the win.

The Bucks are still trying to get back to .500, and I have a feeling they'll be able to pull it off. Sooner, rather than later.

Bachs Skor.
