Milwaukee Bucks

  1. Dirk Nowitzki warned for flop vs. Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping. Nowitzki earned his in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ loss to Denver Monday night, when Darrell Arthur closed out and contested the jumper and Nowitzki fell like he was reenacting the Kennedy…

  2. Caron Butler doesn’t like Brandon Jennings showing up the Bucks

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings traded barbs with his old team this offseason and then finally got his chance to prove his point on the court Monday. He did. Jennings scored an efficient 15 points and added 13 assists and two steals, leading the Pistons to a 19-point win over the Bucks. It was already fulfilling revenge for…

  3. Sixers’ Spencer Hawes hits contested, twisting three to force overtime (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes Sixers

    Spencer Hawes ladies and gentlemen. With the Sixers down three and 3.9 seconds left against the Bucks, Hawes set a pick then slid down the sideline and wasn’t option No. 1 on the play — plus Gary Neal had him well defended — but Hawes got the pass and went up with it, knocking down…

  4. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  6. Report: Omer Asik changes course (somewhat), ready to play for Rockets

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    35973186b1f6fecf2a99f40715a2e485

    Omer Asik, who requested a trade from the Rockets last week, has missed both of Houston’s games since his request became public. Asik has not hidden his desire to leave the Rockets since they signed Dwight Howard and this was just taking the process a step further. Forcing a trade is not a pleasant process,…

  7. Pacers improve to 9-0 with blowout win over Bucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    The Pacers remain undefeated after running their league-best record to 9-0 with a blowout 104-77 win over the Bucks. Milwaukee is a depleted team right now due to multiple players being injured, and there’s not nearly enough depth to sustain even one starter being out, much less multiple productive players. Larry Sanders, Caron Butler, and…

  8. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  9. Three things to watch this weekend: Can the Pacers keep winning? The Nets stop losing?

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert Pacers

    There are a lot of interesting subplots we at PBT will watch as we head into this weekend — such ask, how loud can Sacramento Kings fans yell? — but here are the three things worth watching out for between going to you kid’s talent show and soccer games…. 1) Can the Pacers improve to…

  10. Caron Butler latest in long list of Bucks sidelined with injury

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks are one banged up team. Point guards Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour are not medially cleared to play Friday night (that could change with Ridnour, but he was out as of this writing). Reserve shooting guard Gary Neal has a foot injury that kept him out of the last game. Small forward…

  11. Sam Cassell doesn’t like seeing guys fined for the Sam Cassell dance

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Sam cassell

    It’s been called the big balls dance among other things, but we associate it with Sam Cassell — you hit a big shot, a dagger, and as you come back up the court you drop your hands down like you are cupping some extra large… um… cajones. It’s a popular move, something that makes Cassell…

  12. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  13. Mario Chalmers finds LeBron with the pass through a defender’s legs (VIDEO)

    Nov 12, 2013, 11:12 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    You knew the Heat would be all business at home against the Bucks on Tuesday after LeBron James came out publicly and owned up to just how awful Miami’s defense has been to start the season. Milwaukee wasn’t expected to provide much of a challenge, and this play symbolizes perfectly just how much the Heat…

  14. Bucks’ Larry Sanders has thumb surgery for injury from bar fight, out six weeks

    Nov 11, 2013, 7:49 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    The bar fight that Bucks star Larry Sanders was in has become very costly. Very. Monday he had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered in that incident and he will now be out about six weeks, something the team announced. The surgery was performed by Dr. Curt Crimmins, a hand…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  16. Carlos Delfino says on his Website he will have foot surgery, likely miss season

    Nov 11, 2013, 12:19 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    Carlos Delfino had foot surgery back in May (he injured it during the Rockets’ playoff series and was expected to miss 4-6 months). However, the Bucks signed him over the summer and the original prognosis made you think he would be suiting up for Milwaukee by training camp. Then that got pushed back to the…

  17. Larry Sanders apologizes for nightclub incident that’s caused him to miss time with a thumb injury

    Nov 9, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Marquis Daniels, Larry Sanders

    The Bucks put a lot of faith in Larry Sanders this offseason in signing him to a four-year, $44 million contract extension, and since then he’s done little to show he’s deserving of that trust. On the court, Sanders has been underwhelming in his first three games of the year, with averages of just 2.7…

  18. Zaza Pachulia to buy Bucks old court (once they are done with it)

    Nov 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    milwaukee-bucks court

    It is a really good idea — the Milwaukee Bucks went and hired an artist to design their new court, and he came up with a throwback court honoring their days playing at the MECCA. It was very clever. Only problem was, it wasn’t finished properly, so much so that in a preseason game it…

  19. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  20. Wednesday Night NBA Grades: Larry Sanders out of action, and Tony Parker’s big fourth quarter

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Our grades from Wednesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while securing funds in advance of twitter’s IPO … Larry Sanders. Apologies for starting things off on a negative note, and even more so for discussing someone who didn’t even play in Wednesday night’s action. But signing a contract worth a guaranteed $44 million…

  21. Report: Bucks’ Larry Sanders out Wednesday, being investigated for role in bar fight

    Nov 6, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    This summer the Milwaukee Bucks pulled out the checkbook to make Larry Sanders a franchise anchor — a four years, $44 million extension to his rookie deal. This is not what they had in mind. Sanders is out on Wednesday night against the Cavaliers with a thumb injury, it was announced before the game. But…

  22. Bucks’ Caron Butler fined $15,000 for “obscene gesture” against Boston

    Nov 6, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Avery Bradley, Caron Butler

    As the Bucks were knocking off the Celtics last Friday night, Caron Butler celebrated a big bucket with the “Sam Cassell big balls dance.” The league doesn’t like that gesture and is cracking down — Butler was fined $15,000 by the league Wednesday for the dance. He’s not the first, Andray Blatche of the Nets…

  23. Tuesday And-1 Links: Adam Silver talks the Sports VU cameras

    Nov 5, 2013, 7:09 PM EDT

    Deputy NBA commissioner Silver speaks during an announcement that the Toronto Raptors will host the 2016 NBA All-Star game in Toronto

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Commissioner-in-waiting Adam Silver talks about the Sports VU cameras that are out —…

  24. Kevin Love among four NBA players to get flop warning

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is leading the league in points per game (29.7), second in rebounds per game (14.7) and so he wanted to be one of the first to get a flopping warning from the league also. Well, congratulations, you’ve done it. Love was one of four players to get a flopping warning from the league…

  25. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…
