That's one Bucking impressive stat
The Bucks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 103-102 last night in Charlotte to go 13-0 this season in games decided by 6 points or less. This really shows how far this team has come since last season as far as confidence goes. However, no way should Charlotte have been in this game last night. They were out 6 players to injury and the Bucks blew an 18 point lead. One of the downsides to having a young team is turnovers. The Bucks had 23 of them last night which totally negated their 48-38 rebounding advantage they had. TJ Ford was in the right place at the right time to get the long rebound and the winning bucket. Bogut was impressive with his 18 pt 17 rb game and really needs to become a bigger part of the offense. I liked that they got Magloire so that Bogut was not immediately thrust into the center position, but I think the time has come to put some more on the young guy's shoulders. Give him 38 minutes and 16 shots/game and he'll get you your consistant double double. Oh, and Stotts, let's see some semblance of a defense please.
