Pre-Game Reconnaissance: Knicks vs. Bucks- 3/25/11

Bucks? Huh?

Odds and ends!

- The Bucks, as we know, have one of the most efficient defenses in the NBA. (They also have just about the worst offense, but you wouldn't know that from how they've played recently against the Knicks.)

- Milwaukee has won just two of their last six, one of those being their recent win at our expense.

- In case you missed that last one...it weren't pretty.

Wassup with the Bucks!?

The beatdown of the Knicks in Milwaukee was one of the few high notes the Bucks have had of late. Check out this recap of their most recent game.

Know the Opponent!

#11 Earl Boykins- The results of a brain imaging study by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee suggest that Earl jumping out from under your bed is, in fact, the scariest possible thing in the world.

#40 Jon Brockman- A single drop of Jon's blood contains 180% of the recommended daily protein intake.

#10 Carlos Delfino- No less than two members of the Milwaukee training staff are assigned solely to grooming Carlos's eyelashes.

#3 Brandon Jennings- Brandon is a few pieces of paperwork away from legally changing his name to "Brandon Jennings Wolf Gang Kill Them All".

#22 Michael Redd- Michael's extended absence from basketball has allowed him the time to hone his skills as an assembler and giver of gift baskets. Milwaukee officials have actually taken measures to delay his return past Easter in hopes of receiving holiday presents.

#15 John Salmons- The league has forbidden John from wearing a nemes while he plays.

Coach's Corner! with Dan D'Antoni, Knicks assistant coach and Zachary, California Sea Lion.

Dan: This should be pretty simple, really. It's all about effort.

Zachary: ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART!

Dan: I mean, in that last game, we just fell in love with the jump shot and didn't even get good looks on those outside attempts. Nobody bothered to break down the defense.

Zachary: ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART!

Dan: Defensively, it comes down to simple things: boxing out on the boards and closing out on shooters. The Bucks practically defend themselves if you take care of the effort stuff.

Zachary: ART! ART!

Dan: Haha, yeah, it's all about taking care of the "outs". Wait, is that what you said?

Zachary: ART! ART! ART! ART!

Dan: Oh. Yeah, trouts are good, too.

Zachary: ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART!

Dan: Well, you don't really listen to me either.

Here is a picture of the opposing coach!
