Indiana playing inspired yet again, and it’s been really encouraging to see the young guys play so well. Isaiah Jackson’s athleticism is off the charts! – 9:38 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA No Giannis? No problem. Missing their superstar, the Bucks still managed to handle the Kings Sunday afternoon. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday picked up the slack, handing Sacramento a 133-127 loss. Here are 6 quick thoughts from the Kings’ third straight defeat. – 9:25 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm There are not many guards that just take a few shoulder bumps on the chest from Jrue Holiday, but Davion Mitchell just stood his ground and stripped Holiday. Impressive stuff from the rookie. – 9:04 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski Khris Middleton has hit 6 of his first 7 shots and has 14 points for the #Bucks. Jrue Holiday has 13 on 5 of 12 shooting. Milwaukee up 59-51 near the close of the first half. – 8:00 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm After one quarter, the Kings lead, 35-27. Middleton with 9, Nwora with 8, Holiday with 7.
Net Rtg: -33.3
DRB%: 64.3% – 7:35 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm When Khris Middleton went to the bench with 5:54 left in the first quarter, the Bucks trailed, 19-14. Now with Jrue Holiday going to the bench with 3:02 left in Q1, the Bucks trail 28-17.
Defense is going to need to get a lot better tonight. – 7:26 PM
