Although they only lost by seven, the Milwaukee Bucks looked outclassed by the Pistons in Detroit.

This might have been the worst game of basketball a fan of the Milwaukee Bucks could ever see. At no point did Milwaukee seem able enough to have a shot at winning. There was some very slight intrigue at the end, but by merely making enough of their foul shots the Pistons easily sealed the deal.

But since the Pistons never took a commanding lead either, backup players did not see heavy minutes and the game still felt too close to give up on watching. It was 48 minutes of continuous suck. There weren’t even any good vine moments for Milwaukee in this one–it was just a boring, slow loss.

To make matters even worse, Jerryd Bayless got hurt in Detroit. It’s being called an ankle sprain for now, which would be a lucky break. Anything else wrong with an ankle can get a lot worse than just a sprain really fast.

It will be interesting to see how Jason Kidd adjusts lineups with Bayless out for at least a few days. Will Tyler Ennis be rushed back to start at point guard over Michael Carter-Williams again? Or will Kidd be forced to start MCW?

We’ll find out those answers when Milwaukee matches up with New York Saturday night, but for now let’s focus on this ugly game and see if we can find some positives.
