Bucks Drop Hammer On Spurs & Act Like It’s Nothing
Milwaukee Bucks took the court for the first time in the NBA bubble on Wednesday afternoon. The Milwaukee Bucks took on the San Antonio Spurs in their first three tune-up games before the actual games are underway. Milwaukee acted as they haven’t been off for four months. Things were business as usual as the Bucks took care of business in the third quarter then kept their large lead in the fourth. Milwaukee will likely be on easy street for the next two scrimmages. Head Coach Mike Budenholzer has likely seen what he needs to see with Giannis and company.

This is a great sign for any Bucks fan. I don’t know if any of us were worried about rust with this team, but if you were, it is no longer an issue. The Bucks are ready to roll for the eight-game reset then the playoffs. The opponent doesn’t matter to them. Giannis played decently amid some foul trouble. Brook Lopez found his stroke again which is intriguing. Khris Middleton also looked fresh. Bucks got off to a slow start from three but that is the only issue I can find with yesterday’s game.
Bucks are likely resting Giannis for the second scrimmage against the Sacramento Kings. Or he will play very sparingly while the others take the majority of that game. Bucks seem ready to go now. The only thing left for Milwaukee to do is have Eric Bledsoe potentially start a game. No word on if Bledsoe can play on Saturday or if they have to wait until the final scrimmage.
Good to have Bucks basketball back in our lives. We are one week away from Bucks-Celtics taking center stage and I cannot wait for it.
