The Bucks get a prime time national game tonight at the Cavs on ESPN. Then, they turnaround and come back home for the Kings on Saturday night. I would have preferred the Bucks to be home tonight against the Kings with the game at Cleveland on Saturday. I do not think the Bucks will beat the Cavs no matter when they play them, so I would rather have them play at Cleveland when it is a game they should not win. When they play the Kings does matter since the Bucks can win that game, they would just have a better chance at it on Friday.
This is an important two game stretch to see how the Bucks react to the tough loss against the Lakers from Wednesday night. What I fear is the Bucks actually coming out strong against Cleveland, but still losing, then laying an egg at home against the Kings. They need to get a split this weekend and do anything possible to avoid a sweep.
How lucky did the NFL network get with having their two best games of the week on that channel? Two undefeated teams this late in the season has never happened, and the NFL Network gets both games! Indy pulled through last night and I think the Saints will keep pace on Saturday. I originally thought Dallas would win, but with Ware out I do not think Dallas will have any chance at getting to Brees enough.
The Saints are too tough at home in prime time.
