The Milwaukee Bucks committed 19 turnovers, including seven in the final quarter in a 91-82 loss to the Portland Trailblazers. It’s the 6th straight loss for the Bucks, who continue their struggles in finishing games.
The Bucks only trailed 53-51 at halftime, but got off to a slow start in the 3rd quarter. They were outscored 8-0 to start the third quarter.
Things didn’t get much better the rest of the second half as the Bucks managed to score just 31 points in the final two quarters.
Larry Drew finally had a bench to use. After battling through numerous injuries, a total of 12 players dressed for the game. But sloppy basketball cost the Bucks and gave Portland it’s 8th straight victory.
Luke Ridnour had 13 pints in his first start of the season to lead the Bucks in scoring.
The Bucks are off until tomorrow night (Friday) when they take on the 76ers in Philadelphia.
