Bulls 93 Bucks 86

Always good to see the Bucks fall to the Bulls.  I believe this makes nine in a row.  Bulls also have all time series lead.

Not really happy with the overall situation despite the late defensive surge, which is pretty much a staple.  Turnovers still too high.  Shooting percentage still too low, though Hamilton kept it from being too bad.   Heinrich's scoring average is crap, which isn't helped by the few shots he takes.  But those he does take are usually wide open misses.  Luol Deng also seems to have lost that mid-range jumper that was pretty much automatic last year.  They clearly, as a team, haven't yet found their identity and chemistry, though they seem to be showing flashes of what they could be.  I'd like to see the rookie, Teague, out on the floor a bit more, but it seems that will take a blowout game, either losing by a ton OR winning by a ton.

The Bucks have some great guard play, and Brandon Jennings was killing us.  For a while he seemed unable to miss and worse, able to always get separation for a clean look at the hoop.  The high pick and roll was a winner for them until the Bulls finally realized the pick wasn't rolling.  Too bad Jennings suffered that ankle injury in the last minute of the game, as I would have loved to see how they adjust for the Monday game at the UC.  Of course, he might not be badly hurt, but they did carry him off the court.  It would be a major tough break for the Bucks to lose this kid for even one game, even though it would mean a tenth straight win for the Bulls over this team.  But I prefer to see the Bulls beat a team with the opponent's best on the floor.  Far more satisfying as a fan.

This isn't controversial enough. Look, it doesn't even have any comments! Plus, I don't even (gasp!) follow sports.

Please come up with something better as soon as you're able. Thanks!

New readers, see M.A.'s Aug. 13th's "What A BABE!!!", lest you might think A Female Reader is vain.

The funny part about this post is that the Bulls lost to the Bucks in their very next game.

Marshall Art said...

What's "funny" about it? It happens all the time that better teams in any sport fall to teams they should beat.

As it happens, I was going to note the next game but got sidetracked. Now, it doesn't matter. They meet again twice in January.

Funny because...

"I prefer to see the Bulls beat a team with the opponent's best on the floor"

.. perhaps you should worry more about the season record rather than picking on one game.

Marshall Art said...

Perhaps you could resist pretending you have a point worth offering. A former visitor, Les, had made a rare visit and brought forth our old rivalry in this area. It was for his benefit that I posted this and will be for his benefit that I post future notes regarding this rivalry. Thus, you are, as usual, devoid of relevant info necessary to even have an opinion.

lol.. marsha.. you continue to be.. a complete ass.

Happy Holidays!

Here is another score for you to contemplate..

13,926 to 24

That is the number of peer-reviewed scientific articles published between 1 January 1991 and 9 November 2012 that have the keyword phrases "global warming" or "global climate change" produced 13,950 articles. Of this total, 24 clearly reject global warming or endorse a cause other than CO2 emissions for observed warming.

Aside from being totally irrelevant to this post (what a surprise), so what? Go ahead and try to make the case that numbers have anything to do with truth.

Parklife said...

Do you really want to talk about the Bulls?

Marshall Art said...

I wanna talk about whatever I wanna talk about. Do you really want to continue being an annoying troll, or do you have something substantive to offer...ever?

Parklife said...

lol.. marsha.. What. Do. You. Want. To. Talk. About.

Marshall Art said...

So you have a speech impediment.

Parklife said...

wow.. you are sensitive.

Newtown happens and all you do is delete my post.

Ah, that's better. Comments. Seems that someone else who enjoys reading you wanted to prove me wrong. Ha.

And I do enjoy reading your blog. I was just razzing you about the sports-related comments. Personally, I just find it more entertaining when you write something that gets some folks all worked up. The name-calling occasionally gets to me but, otherwise, things can get pretty darn interesting here sometimes! Keep up the good work. I look forward to what you'll come up with next.

Marshall Art said...

Sensitive, Sparkie? Not at all. Just bored with you as usual.

Marshall Art said...

Thanks, Anon, whoever you are. It would help if you could adopt some nom-de-plume to distinguish you from others who use "anonymous". As to your request, I'm low on time and ideas I have fall by the wayside as a result. In other words, old news by the time I get around to a post. But, I should have something soon thanks to the holidays.

Parklife said...

I see. You're still mad that I wished you "happy holidays".

Marshall Art said...

Mad, troll? You're incapable of provoking more than pity.

Parklife said...

Soo.. youre not going to have a happy holiday. Meh.. Your choice.

Marshall Art said...

Whatever you say, Benny.
