The Bucks are doing a fine job of blowing out teams that aren't particularly very good. The better ones? Not so much. The Bucks seemed helpless at times against the Pacers, who posted an offensive efficiency rating of 126.3. George Hill scored 24 points off the bench and a size-disadvantaged Bucks frontline could not put the brakes on the Pacers' combo of David West (15 points 6-14 FG) and Roy Hibbert (16 points, 7-11 FG). In spite of this, Ersan Ilyasova continued to be a bright spot with 22 points and 8 rebounds. Brandon Jennings perked up the crowd for a little while with a half-court shot to end the third quarter, but it did little for the Bucks and was otherwise a night of struggles for Jennings (5-16 FG). However, through all of this the Bucks still managed to churn out 30 assists, if that's any consolidation whatsoever. If the Bucks wish to get serious about the playoffs, they'll need a good showing against the Knicks on Monday.
