Box Score: Bucks 121, Cavaliers 84

The Milwaukee Bucks were a locomotive, and the young Cavaliers were planted firmly on the tracks. The Bucks shot 57% and made 50, yes, 50 field goals as they absolutely obliterated the Cavaliers in Quicken Loans Arena 121-84. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting, while Ersan Ilyasova added 20 and 10 rebounds. Kyrie Irving flashed his brilliance with 29 points and 6-for-6 from three point range, Alonzo Gee added 19 points and 8 rebounds, and Tristan Thompson had 15 points and 11 rebounds. Irving left the blowout early, but he also sprained his right shoulder early in the second half. The Cavaliers have now lost six straight and play the Knicks tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden.

    It’s weird I really don’t have a problem with them losing. I love the Cavs, but it just means a better draft pick! If we can somehow manage to move up and get another lottery pick I will be ecstatic! Unlike the other Cleveland teams, I have faith in management! Gilbert is the man!

  • Andrew B.

    For the record, at the beginning of the season, I didn’t agree with tanking. Winning is much more important but when I checked the score on my phone, I couldn’t help but smirk.

  • FearTheRoo

    Well for some part of the season we had a “chance” at making the playoffs. But being the 8th seed with an early exit would actually hurt us more than being a lottery team, so I don’t mind the losing!

    One team on the rise the other in freefall don’t bring Varejao back and lets get a top five pick.  So much more offense is needed out of a guy who can create for himself.  Look at the dynamic backcourt the Bucks now have in Jennings and Ellis.  Get Irving a running mate.

    Man, Jamison has really dropped off since the trade deadline…

  • BrownsfanSF

    I agree, I think he’s mailed it in
