Milwaukee Bucks vs. Sacramento Kings – November 5
Those with a short memory might wonder why they should be looking forward to a game against the Sacramento Kings. After a couple of fiery encounters last season, the Bucks and the Kings now have what Taylor Swift would describe as bad blood.
As a quick reminder, let’s run through the various reasons why tempers flared last season.
Jason Kidd was angry with the decisions made by officials throughout the game and was ultimately ejected for slapping the ball out of Zach Zarba’s hands.
Now former Buck O.J. Mayo got into it with the Kings bench throughout the game, continued a long-running feud with DeMarcus Cousins (who was in street clothes due to injury) and reportedly challenged him to a fight in the tunnel. In the end the Bucks had to be escorted to their locker room by security.
At this point, you’re probably saying “but Mayo won’t be playing this time around, what’s the big deal?”. The answer to that is simple. Matt Barnes is now a King!
