Bucks-Warriors: Disappointing Fourth Quarter Buries Milwaukee

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IDecember 11, 2008

What's with these guys?

After a so-so first half, the Bucks (9-15) come out and have a great third quarter—then just completely crap the bed in the fourth.

Just ugly, and supremely frustrating.

The Warriors (7-15) had seven—count them, seven—guys score double figures, as the Warriors outscored the Bucks 37-11 in the fourth and won 119-92.

It was a one-point game at the end of the third period.

I don't even know what to say. The Bucks again let their opponent destroy them in FT attempts, grossly out foul the other team, and allowed an opposing field-goal percentage around .500. You just can not win with that cocktail.

I don't know how you change it, but it seems as if Skiles has something to work on and it hasn't gotten through to his team yet.

The Bucks leading scorer was Redd with 27 points. Ridnour, Jefferson, and Bogut also had double-figure point totals. CV didn't have the points tonight but he grabbed 10 boards and had four blocks from the bench.

Bucks Score.

The Bucks play at home against the Indiana Pacers (7-14) Saturday at 7:30 pm. Fond du Lac-native and Marquette grad Travis Diener is unlikely to play, due to a sore foot.
