On Larry's great block, he kept the ball in play and then snatched the rebound on it away from Ersan.

Buddha put up a 15/8 line with one great block in only 20 minutes. Whether he starts or not is sort of irrelevant since Larry finishes. We'd need 20 minutes of backup center anyways. To get this type of production from our "backup" center is pretty good.

Dunleavy with 9 rebounds. He seems to have found his home in our up tempo game.


sammy/ larry center duo.......

42 mpg
16.8 ppg
13.3 rpg
3.5 bpg
.644 fg%
.667 ft%

only complaint i have is theyre only 0-1 from 3pt. that needs to improve.

The last thing you want to do is try and change how Sanders plays. Nobody is saying he doesn't need to improve. But you're never going to change the kind of player he is in terms of how he attacks the game. And that's fine, since he's a stud defender.

One thing I would like to give Skiles props for, is that he mixed in Henson when it was still a close contest. I hope he continues to carve out small amounts of minutes for Henson during the flow of the game and not just in garbage time. I think this will help the rookie learn.

Right. I never said he shouldn't work on his game.

What I have said is that if he was doing this at an incredible rate or even a rate worth mentioning honestly, Larry Sanders himself would not be 10th in the NBA in DRR, and the Bucks would not be 1st in the league at it. I stand by that.

I could always cut him a deal with ATT Uverse.


Or instead of trying to sell the guy something, you could direct him to his customer service.

They've done a very good job together holding down the center position. They both have different advantages but one thing they have both been doing very well is catching passes from our guards and getting easy slams which I think has been huge for our offense as a whole.

Agreed, he played very well in his limited time. He didnt treat it like garbage time either.

Well given that we don't know the provider, that would be rather difficult. I don't see you directing anyone to a customer service department.

Are there problems getting the bucks games on Dish? I was thinking about switching to save money.

My parents had DISH since 1997, and I recently switched them to Uverse. I dont know if it was us not switching the package ever, or what, but we didn't receive FSNWI at all. We had FSN-North, which was Minnesota's equivalent. Most of the games were on the sports alternate channels, but on certain occasions they would be blacked out for whatever reason. You'd also have to deal with the weather which was always incredibly annoying, and lock yourself into a two year contract, in which they generally jack up the price after the first 12 months.

But this is where my problem comes in ATT sales guy. I don't get U-Verse in my area and Directv is raping my bill every month. I called and threatened to cancel and they just said OK.

From the jumbotron:

Fan dancing was surprisingly up to par on this night.
Sam Dalembert is the best dancer on the team. He's actually good.
The Bucks are one defensive center away from being the best defense in the league. Own the future. Get me Willie Cauley-Stein

Yeah, that's ****. I had Charter all five years I lived out there, and they were always a pain in the ass to deal with.

He's good at mumbling Thanksgiving wishes, in his thick Haitian accent, to the fans too.

Sad part was that the upper level was pretty much empty...on a Sat night...with us being in 1st place. :-?

To be fair, we've all seen this show before. It'll take prolonged success to change things around.

Exactly, the casual fan are in football mode right now and I think the team needs to keep winning to see a bump in attendance. I think if we can knock off NY, Miami, and/or Chicago in the upcoming stretch that will create some buzz.

If we are in first 40 games into the season and nobody is coming, maybe then its time to start calling people out.

Even during the FTD season, it wasn't until the later part of the season when we acquired Salmons that people really started noticing.

Smart guy. Customer service is customer service. No matter what company it is.
