One night after falling to the Chicago Bulls 126-121 in overtime, the Milwaukee Bucks had nothing left in the tank. They traveled to Orlando and folded quickly in a 99-81 setback against the Magic.
Michael Redd poured in 52 against the Bulls. He was held to 15 points against the Magic one night later. Andrew Bogut had been coming off of three straight double-doubles. Last night, he was held scoreless with just one shot and pulled down just 3 rebounds.
What makes this loss even worse is the Bucks had an opponent ripe for the picking. The Magic were 1-7 since the all-star break, but they found the Bucks to be the team ripe for the picking.
Forward Hedo Turkoglu led the way with a season high 25 points and 9 rebounds.
The Bucks return home to host the Lakers on Wednesday night at the Bradley Center.
