I again watched about 40% of the Bucks game last night, and it looked a lot better. The Thunder (is that a dumb name or what) is a bad team, but I still saw signs of things to like from the Bucks.
In one possession in the first quarter, all five players touched the ball in what ended up being a dunk for Bogut. Three of the passes were especially shocking - Redd passed up an open 3 because Jefferson had a better look, and then Jefferson saw that Charlie V. was open down low with an even better look, and then when the defense collapsed on Charlie he got it to Bogut for an uncontested shot.
It almost brought a tear to my eye. Almost.
This could have been a tough game, it being the first game of a new franchise's existence and all, but the Bucks pretty much removed the crowd from the game by racing out to a big lead and then held on for the rest of the way.
