The Bucks cannot just make it easy on us fans can they? The Bucks held a ten point lead with less than five minutes to play and the lead evaporated to two points in seconds. First an ally-oop to Dalenbert, then good defense forced an off-balanced jumper by Jennings, then a turnover and blocked shot. All led to points.
But… The Bucks held on for the three point win. The Bucks really struggled at the end until Jennings forced the issue by getting into the lane, giving a little shake, and firing off a runner then went in. Jennings has to do this more when the Bucks need points. He gets no fouls called against him, is rail thin, and only a rookie, but there is no other option on the Bucks to at least guarantee a shot will get off. That is the biggest problem I have with the Bucks, there are too many times where they need a good possession that will at worst result in a missed shot but it ends in a turnover.
Anyways, Jennings make the runner to put the Bucks up by two with 22 seconds left. Elton Brand missed 26 bunnies before the ball went out of bounds back to the Bucks. The Bucks inbounded, Ridnour got fouled, and made one. Ridnour making only one was too predictable, of course the Bucks were going to leave the 76ers a chance. The three at the buzzer missed, and the Bucks won.
Wow! The Bucks always make it interesting.
