The Milwaukee Bucks haven't started a season 2-0 since the 2005-06 season -- when they actually ripped off...*gasp*...three straight wins, so Brew Hoop readers and Milwaukee Bucks fans everywhere are a little bit excited. It's admittedly a silly milestone to even consider celebrating, as the vibe of the first few games always outweighs the actual predictive value, but we celebrated each win on its own merits. The Bucks certainly gave us reason to celebrate, too.
A blowout win over the Boston Celtics felt better than any regular season win of recent memory. Milwaukee looked dominant, which is something that has been a rare sight for Bucks fans. They followed up the beat down in Boston with an uneven performance against the Kyrie Irving and Cavaliers that hit its peak on absolutely the final play of the contest. Mike Dunleavy and Brandon Jennings hooked up on what might be the prettiest play of the season for the game-winner, and that's how the Bucks got to 2-0. Winning is fun. The Bucks are undefeated. Brew Hoop game threads are fundefeated so far this season. Check it out below.

Bucks 99, Celtics 88 Recap: Brandon Jennings and Milwaukee embarrass Boston in season opener
Hear The Deer? Why not...
We need to step up our fat jokes game. I'm looking squarely at you, CB. Let's see if my stream of consciousness can beat you: Darko Milicic is so fat, they avoid benching him just to save money on bench repairs.
Solid theory here for why the Bucks dominated the Celtics. Bonus points for the sideswipe on those ugly purple uniforms.
"Safely out of the doghouse and renting space in our hearts" could easily be the tagline for the 2012-13 Milwaukee Bucks. Bonus points here for the Mokeski ref (video clip with a really young Mark Giangreco).
Watching Bucks games can be tough, even when things are going really well for the team.
His mouth was closed before tip-off. The Bucks were that impressive.
I can't tell if CB had a great night or a terrible night on the keyboard...
