PG: Bucks beat Portland

Great game from Jennings, Dunleavy, and Ersan.

Poor games from Ellis and Ekpe.

I'd think about trading Udoh ASAP.

Jennings deserves his calls. Good win, **** refs.

I've been unimpressed with Udoh for some time now. If we can get something decent back I don't see why we wouldn't pull the trigger.

Somehow we went 3-1 on this road trip, I don't know how.

Good road trip in the end. This team is still as confusing as a team can be though.

First time the Bucks had a winning road trip of more than 4 games since March of 2001. Absolutely stunning.

I love the way Brandon was playing throughout most of this game too. I literally shouted when he split those defenders. He did a great job being aggressive and taking it at the basket while not avoiding contact all night.

As usual when Larry went out, this went south really fast.

Hopefully he didn't do anything that gets him suspended. We need him out there

Yeah. I didn't see anything suspension worthy, but we can tack on two more T's til his automatic suspension. Is that number still 16 and what is Larry at?

Really liked the BJ/Dunleavy/Moute/Ersan/Sanders lineup. Wes Matthews would make a great Monta replacement. Once Sanders went out of the game, our interior defense was garbage. Boylan made some odd decisions in the 2nd half but kudos, I suppose, for recognizing the Daly mistake...

This game proved how important Larry Sanders is to the Bucks.

This team is very good when we have good production from the PF position. We saw it tonight when Ersan went on a tear. Blazers were no where near our level with his production. Offense flowed very nicely. With poor production from the PF position we are an average team.

I understand the dislike of Udoh's play. I mentioned this about 10 games back. I haven't seen much improvement since.

Nice west coast road trip. Pleasant surprise.

Yep, Sanders out hurt us. Got the win but man that was ugly as hell.

Made this one really hard on themselves, but got the win and a winning road trip. Somehow this team continues to stay above .500 when I think they are about to fall apart.

Jennings was big tonight, hope he doesn't go into a funk when he's not picked to the AS team. Ersan looked really good. Dunleavy did his thing again.

Udoh has looked bad lately. Dalembert was terrible.

Will take the win. No reason not to go on a little win streak right now and I now believe we're tied with Atlanta in the loss column for the 6 seed.

Jennings since Boylan took over:

22.2/6/3.5 on .581 TS (.473 FG)

Hopefully he keeps it up. Boylan = Brad whisperer

Very happy to finish the road trip 3-1. If not sure when the coaches vote for the reserves, but if Brandon has another big game on Tuesday against the 76ers and we win, he will have a real chance to make the All-Star team.

Also, we're only 3 games back of the #3 seed, and anywhere from .5-1.5 games back of the #4-#6 seeds and we own the tie-breaker over each of those teams right now.

Great win. I will never complain about a 3-1 road trip. For most of the game I thought it was the best the team has looked all year.

Ellis looks like he is pouting now on top of not playing well. He needs to go fast. The team looked great when they went with Dunleavy at the two.

As always though this team goes as Jennings goes. The team looks even better when you get some good outside shooting from Ersan. Sanders needs anger management.
"I just wanted to play because I just love the game," Jennings said. "It doesn't matter to me. I get up to play basketball. It's my job. I have to still be a professional and finish the season."
