Bucks on Roll?

The Bucks in getting off to a 4 and 5 start have been one of the early consensus flops in the NBA for the 2010/2011 season. Of course we know they were picked by most to finish atop the Central division and in the upper half of the Eastern Conference but things have looked pretty sad early and they have been dropping like a rock in the Power Rankings around the internet. The good news of course is that the season has barely started and in the last two game the Bucks have rung up big victories, in both games breaking the 100 point barrier and defeating the Knicks and Hawks by 27 and 19 points. Also in the good news column is that they are only still one game back in the not so impressive Central Division.

After the Bucks win over the Hawks Corey Maggette was quoted as that people should have expected them to start slow due to all of the players the Bucks have coming off of injuries which include himself, Bogut and Salmons. Maggette went off for 20 points from the bench in the Hawks win so hopefully with his comment and performance he feels that he has now turned the corner. You hate to see excuses for loosing but you know what we will give it to the Bucks it might be a little expected that they start off a little rusty and it isn't how you start the year it is how you finish it.

The Bucks have had one thing going for them all season and that is it appears this team now reflects the gritty defensive persona of it coach as it is 3rd in the NBA in points allowed, which is a shocking development for a franchise that didn't know the meaning of the word defense for seemingly decades. The bad has been that the offense has been stuck in neutral and is currently 27th in the league in points per game also a shocking development for the franchise. This team could be scary good if the offense turns around as you would expect it to with the firepower on the court, the Bucks don't have as much offense in year past but we expect it to finish the year still in the upper division of offense in the NBA. Defense wins championships which we believe the Bucks have found, so stay with us folks we think this is going to be an exciting season for the Bucks as things are starting to look healthy.
