Tobias Harris led all scorers with 19 points, but the black squad featuring Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis edged Harris' white squad 63-59.
We're still a couple days away from the Bucks' preseason opener on Tuesday against the Cavs, but Thursday's open scrimmage at the BMO Harris Bradley Center at least provided a first glimpse of Scott Skiles' 12/13 squad.
Much to everyone's delight, Tobias Harris led the way with a game-high 19 points for the white squad, which also featured presumptive starting power forward Ersan Ilyasova (14 points, 8 rebs, 4/7 threes), and Beno Udrih (13 pts). Drew Gooden scored 11 for the black squad while John Henson added 10. Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis were mostly deferential in scoring just six points each, with Jennings adding a game-high nine assists. Don't expect that mindset to continue once the real games start.
