The Milwaukee Bucks , without Michael Redd, Andrew Bogut and Bobby Simmons in the lineup, suffered a 104-78 loss to the Denver Nuggets in exhibition play at the Resch Center in Green Bay on Tuesday night.
Afterwards, coach Larry Krystkowiak and his staff came to the conclusion that his team lacks conditioning and promised to do something about it, starting with workouts today (Wednesday).
Krystkowiak said, "We've been spending a lot of time in the half-court, defensive drills trying to shore up some deficiencies. But right now when you look at…when you turn the ball over as many times as we have (27) in the last two games, I've got to believe that we're tired when we have the ball. You get a little complacent and you make errors. And when you see as many transition baskets that we're giving up, it leads me to believe that we're not in very good shape. We'll address that."
The Bucks turned the ball over 30 times in a loss to Utah in Milwaukee last Saturday and followed that up with 27 more turnovers last night in the loss to Utah. They also lost the fast break points 30-7.
Charlie Bell had 17 points and Mo Williams 16 to lead the Bucks who fall to 2-2. Allen Iverson led all scorers with 22 points for Denver.
