New Orleans Hornets vs. Milwaukee Bucks Game Thread (Nov. 17)

Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets are in Milwaukee to take on Larry Sanders and the Bucks on Saturday night. It's our first extended look at the No. 1 pick of the 2012 NBA Draft.

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

All eyes will be on the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday night, as Larry Sanders and the Milwaukee Bucks (5-2) are set to host Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets (3-4) at 7:30 p.m. CT. The Bucks and Hornets are coming off the opposite ends of blowout games. Milwaukee crushed the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, while New Orleans suffered through a thrashing from Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday.

Anthony Davis, or simply Unibrow, has started his rookie season with a bang. Through the first six games of 2012-13, the former Kentucky Wildcat has posted a 28.85 PER along with 15.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game. He's the real deal, and everyone should be excited to watch him play. The compounding excitement factor in this game comes from the fact that he will match up against Milwaukee's stable of Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men -- Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh and John Henson. My eyes will be glued to those matchup combinations all night long.
