Bucks Impressively Rout Sacramento
Milwaukee Bucks came into Tuesday game against the Sacramento Kings under some scrutiny from their fan base. Bucks gave up 120 points to Utah on Saturday night, and people wondered the direction that Jason Kidd was taking the team. People still have questions about Kidd and the coaching staff, but tonight showed many good things about the Bucks. Milwaukee dominated Sacramento with a 112-87 victory. They looked great on both sides of the ball, and let’s hope for this team that this is a turn into a good direction.
1-0 in the #GiannisCares era
It was impressive to watch Milwaukee put their spin on the whole dust-up with Sean Sweeney on Saturday night which led to the #GiannisCares era. I love that Mitch and I are going to make this thing for awhile until you guys get sick of it. Kings had zero answer for Giannis. Like absolutely none. He took full control of this basketball game. Giannis looked like a man among boys tonight. He finished with 32 points, five rebounds, five assists and five steals. Another major plus is Antetokounmpo only played 26 minutes
Jason Terry gets a surprising 22 minutes
Out of nowhere, Jason Terry played 22 minutes. That’s the most minutes he played all season. Terry became an all-time towel waver until tonight. The quote below will have it seem like he’s going to be on the court more often. It appears Terry and Kidd worked out a deal to have him really start his season around December. 23 minutes might be a little much, but the old veteran adds an element for Milwaukee’s second unit. I love that he doesn’t force his shot and always looks to get the young guys going.

Tony Snell moves back in the starting lineup
After Gary Payton II getting two surprise starts, Tony Snell went back into the lineup. That needs to be the standard. I get the idea of trying to help your second unit, but at the same time, Payton II does absolutely nothing for the team. He’s way too raw. Kidd tried to brush it off like whomever start doesn’t matter, but it’s truly bullshit. Yet tonight, we saw all of the Snell and only Payton II in garbage time. Let’s keep it that way.
Milwaukee will head to Portland to finish up their road trip. This is a house money game for the team. If they lose, it’s still a .500 West Coast road trip which are always good. If they win, they take 3 of 4 on the road before facing this same Sacramento team on Saturday night. We should expect some fireworks after the thriller these two teams played in mid-October.
