The Milwaukee Bucks are good again! The Bucks won big over Brooklyn, 94-86. With the win Milwaukee pushed their record to 4-3, the first time the Bucks have been over .500 all season.

Considering the Bucks’ schedule is about to get tougher, this may be a good time to enjoy having more wins than losses. But I digress–we’ve got a win to talk about.

The differences between the first and second half in this one were stark. The Bucks went into the second half all tied up with Brooklyn after a disastrous first quarter by the Bucks’ bench left the Nets with a six point lead heading into the second period.

Fortunately then the awful duo of Miles Plumlee and Johnny O’Bryant was broken up, and the Bucks were able to outscore the Nets in the next three quarters to come away with a big win.

We saw a familiar face start to finally play up to expectations, a couple surprising minutes decisions and some great play from an unlikely source–let’s get right into the action, with my reactions.
