#Hornets are over the foul limit so the Bucks will be shooting free throws for the final 6:15 of the fourth quarter. – 10:08 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
As they should, #Hornets putting Boogie Cousins into the ball screen action every time down the floor. – 10:06 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
It has not been a banner night for this officiating crew. I’m actually surprised someone from the Bucks has not gotten a technical. – 9:58 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Giannis Antetokounmpo with an and-one fastbreak bucket to give the Bucks a five point lead at the start of the fourth quarter.
Bucks up, 100-95, with 11:16 left. – 9:55 PM

Mitch Kupchak: “Jerry West would use an expression about certain players, that they ‘had a little gold dust’ sprinkled on them from above. I do think LaMelo [Ball] has that.”
With each passing day, it’s getting increasingly difficult to argue otherwise: basketballnews.com/stories/third-…9:43 PM

George Hill with the and-one bucket in transition.
And the Bucks have a 91-90 lead. – 9:43 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Great job by LaMelo to pass his man off to McDaniels, keeping him out of the switch on Giannis + allowing him to gamble for the steal in help. Leads to highlight alley in transition to Miles. pic.twitter.com/HwqjSDhDlo9:43 PM

“MILES BRIDGES JUST PUT THE FREAK IN THE BASKET!” Cmonnnn 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/j1WoAuo6hq9:40 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Yo. That was another dime from Antetokounmpo.
Started it with the defense. Connaughton saved the blocked shot from going out of bounds. Cousins to Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo to Holiday with the righty bounce pass. Holiday with a two-hand slam. – 9:37 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
I’m really curious to see how the Bucks close this game out.
The Hornets play small lineups pretty much exclusively, essentially encouraging Budenholzer to play Antetokounpo at center. But the Bucks’ Top 9 has two more bigs that need minutes to get them through the game. – 9:30 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Last time Khris Middleton tried to avoid a take foul with a pass, he threw it away in transition in Indiana.
This time, he got Grayson Allen an easy dunk. – 9:23 PM
Charlotte Hornets @hornets
We needed a close up on this one 👀🎥

Halftime: #Hornets 68, Bucks 60 – 9:04 PM

DeMarcus Cousins’ first bucket with the Bucks comes on an isolation where Kelly Oubre got switched onto him and he just muscled his way to the rim. – 9:04 PM
Milwaukee Bucks @Bucks
Pat’s shot is out of this world!! pic.twitter.com/PWGGbzD3HN9:03 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Whoa. That was a full-court-dime from Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Thread it through traffic on the run to Grayson Allen. – 9:02 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Charlotte has been very advantageous on the offensive glass in this 1H. – 9:02 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Kelly Oubre has 17 points in 14 minutes off the bench. Cat is instant offense. – 8:59 PM

Bucks down, 54-44, with 4:26 left in the first half.
The Hornets have defended Antetokounmpo well in the past, but he already has 21 points. Bucks are 4-of-14 from 3 though. Hornets have hit 11 of 22 from deep. – 8:56 PM
Milwaukee Bucks @Bucks
Don’t test this man 😤 pic.twitter.com/QwkwCCokOq8:53 PM

Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
This first half has felt a lot like the Minnesota game: hot shooting start by the visitors digs the Bucks a big hole, Giannis wills Bucks back into it, but Bucks not getting over the hump. – 8:53 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks have been on the wrong end of a bunch of 50-50 balls tonight. Tip away a Hornets dribble or deflect a pass and it somehow ends up in the hands of a different Hornets player in a position to score or drive. – 8:52 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
That is a preposterous steal by Jrue Holiday. – 8:50 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
We need another casket. Down goes Jrue Holiday. pic.twitter.com/f1XPxf81Ug8:47 PM

I had a hunch that the lineup including Ish Smith + Richards v. Giannis + Middleton could be trouble. – 8:42 PM

Justin Garcia @tmjgarcia
Hornets did hit 52 threes in 3 games against the Bucks last year, so… – 8:37 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
And there is DeMarcus Cousins.
He starts the second quarter for the Bucks. Out there with Hill, Allen, Middleton and Antetokounmpo, – 8:37 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
#Hornets post a 1.41 PPP in 1Q. My only take away is that simply is too good of a start. The correction to the mean is going to sting. – 8:36 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
After one quarter, the Hornets lead, 41-25. They have made 10-of-17 from 3 and that is pretty much the game at this point.
Advanced Stats:
OffRtg: 83.3
DefRtg: 141.4
Net Rtg: -58.1
ORB%: 15.4%
DRB%: 88.9% – 8:36 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Uh, Terry Rozier already has 7 assists to go with 8 points. The #Hornets had 17 points off those assists he created. – 8:35 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Great help D from Rozier in paint. Back-to-back anticipation steals for Terry. pic.twitter.com/7mbwomd8xJ8:34 PM

Giannis has hit more left-shoulder fadeaways in the last three games (5 by my count) than I can remember him hitting total in…his entire career? – 8:23 PM
Charlotte Hornets @hornets
This ball movement is a thing of BEEauty!

Miles Bridges halfway to a double-double in the first quarter. Has 6 points and 5 rebounds. – 8:21 PM

Giannis gets the Bucks going!! pic.twitter.com/LZ4h5UiS0L8:18 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
#Hornets come out hot, hitting 5 of 10 shots and 3 of 7 beyond the arc. Early 17-7 edge for the visitors. – 8:18 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks down, 17-7, with 7:39 left in the first quarter.
Hornets have not been shy from behind the 3-point line and hit 3 of their first 7 shots from deep. – 8:17 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Took almost 90 seconds, but the Bucks are on the board on a free throw from Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Missed the first, made the second. Bucks down, 5-1, with 10:36 left in the first quarter. – 8:12 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
I remember when #Cavs supposedly should have drafted Tyler Herro (and Rui Hachimura and Coby White and PJ Washington) instead of Darius Garland. – 8:09 PM

Cody Martin is out for tonight’s game against the Bucks. He’s still not over his illness. Told me earlier at shootaround that it’s some kind of stomach bug. Said he actually felt worse after Bulls game on Monday than he did before it. But he’s expected to play in their next game. – 6:41 PM

With TNT dumping Heat vs the disappointing Pacers on Dec. 21, Heat’s only national TV game (not counting NBA TV) in next 2 months is Dec. 8 vs. Bucks on ESPN. Wizards-Nets replaced Heat-Pacers on TNT schedule…. Heat has 5 national TV games after Jan., including Raptors Feb. 3 – 5:46 PM
Charlotte Hornets @hornets
On this day in 1988, Charles Barkley is called for charging at the buzzer and the expansion Hornets beat the 76ers 109-107, giving Charlotte its first win against a team over .500.

Miles Bridges has made two jumps this season. He’s gone from a guy who gets set up to one who creates his own shot AND sets up other guys.
