Oh-fer: Orlando Magic 114, Milwaukee Bucks 98

The Bucks lost four games to the Orlando Magic in 22 days. In essence, they played a best-of-seven series against a playoff-caliber club and got swept. They lost all manner of games: close games and blowouts, home games and road games, comebacks and wire-to-wire losses. In last night’s version, they fell behind, caught up in a blaze of second-quarter offense, and fell apart late.

But the contest was never really in doubt, because the Bucks simply could not stop Dwight Howard, whose shot chart boiled down to one big sinkhole in the middle of the Milwaukee defense.

Here is Orlando’s Big Baby Davis blocking his 10th shot of the season.

“Why does Coach Skiles keep putting in this short dude to bug the crap outta me?”

Can’t imagine that this shot went in. It is the frontrunner for the Official Behind the Buck Pass Drew Gooden Picture of the Year. I think he’s looking to see where the ball went. Optimist.

Tweet of the Night (this is what happens when an unfamiliar national TV audience suffers exposure to the Bucks):

@satscribe: Not surprisingly I don’t follow the Milwaukee Bucks, but since when do their colors include red? And one Buck is named Larry Sanders?

C’mon lottery.
