Michael Redd Back, but Bucks Still Fall

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst INovember 30, 2008

This picture describes a lot of what the Bucks and Bucks fans must be feeling at this point. The Bucks dropped another game Saturday night, falling to 7-12 to the 14-3 Cavs in a 97-85 loss.

If you notice the box score, you'll see Michael Redd made an appearance. He played 35 minutes and scored 20 points off the bench. He did look rusty shooting, hitting only 5-of-16 shots. Ramon Sessions and Charlie Villanueva were seen in the starting lineup, and Bogut sat out again with a knee issue.

Poor shooting, turnovers, and a huge rebound differential were the keys in tonight's loss. Most of the game the team really looked out of sync, with the exception of a short time in the fourth quarter when the Bucks made a run to get within two points. However, that was short-lived and the Cavs ran away toward the end. Oh, and LeBron James, as usual, owned them.

The "Red Out" attempt was on a level of pathetic I cannot begin to describe. There looked to be about 20 people in the stands wearing red. These jerseys are sweet, though.


TBC's Player of the Game: Luke Ridnour

He had 15 points, including four big three-pointers in the second half to bring the Bucks close. Redd looked much too rusty and Sessions' shooting percentage was a bit rough.
