Milwaukee’s 6-11 start, tying Detroit for the last spot in the Central Division is not the start to the season many people expected. The chemistry still is not there with the new additions of the team this season.
Then again how can you build chemistry, when your not healthy?
CDR is back from his eye injury, missing Milwaukee’s first 15 games of the season. CDR had 19 points in a reserve roll with his second game with the Bucks this season. Milwaukee lacked sized last night in the loss in Utah. Milwaukee was without Bogut, Gooden, Delfino and Maggette.
Milwaukee needs to get healthy now, 5 games under .500 for the season isnt what the fans have expected in Milwaukee. They need atleast one of there big men back, so Rookie Larry Sanders doesnt have to keep suffering under the hoop. When the Bucks get healthy this season look out, the East is still up for grabs.
Brandon Jennings is playing the best ball of his career. Averaging over 25 ppg in his last 3 games, raising his average to 18.4 ppg this season. If the Bucks want to keep winning I believe Jennings is the main ingredient.
Last season Milwaukee acquired John Salmons from the Chicago Bulls in a mid-season trade, which turn Milwaukee’s season around. This season Salmons is off to a slow start. While watching these games Salmons doesn’t have the same game as he did last year, although he’s not 100%, he can still produce more to the team than what he is right now.
CDR is impressing me with his two games played in a Bucks uniform, he’s bringing a lot of energy to the court with his athleticism. It will be interesting, when everyone gets healthy how the rotation will work with Coach Scott Skiles.
The national headlines is all about the Miami Heat struggles; which is a good thing for Milwaukee with their poor record staying out of the spotlight.
Still a lot of the season left, I believe the Bucks will be tough down the road….FEAR THE DEER…
