The Milwaukee Bucks struggled with injuries during the exhibition season and many of their key players entered the regular season with little to no time on the court together.
It showed again last night with a lackluster 90-76 home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers at the Bradley Center.
The players are reminding everyone to not press the panic button. They know it’s going to take some time to get that timing down. But it doesn’t get any easier. The Bucks travel to Boston to face the Celtics tonight.
Former Marquette star Wes Matthews had 16 of his game high 18 points in the first half. Corey Maggette had 16 to lead the Bucks, but hit just 4 of 12 field goals.
The Bucks say chemistry is very important and they don’t currently have that. How long they take to get it will determine just how slow they start out of the gates.
