How does this work again? Ah yes,

Greetings, Milwaukee Bucks fans, and welcome back to a day where we can finally distract ourselves from the dismal hellscape that is the year 2020 for a few hours, with actual real-live basketball!

Today’s game will be our first glimpse at what the Bucks look like inside the Orlando bubble; while they’re still without Pat Connaughton and Eric Bledsoe (who arrived in Florida last night), the rest of the team is fully prepared. Well, some more than others:

Since the game is a scrimmage and doesn’t count for anything more than practice reps and reinforcing muscle memory, we won’t overdo it either. We know that we’re playing the San Antonio Spurs, who are without LaMarcus Aldridge and Trey Lyles and generally have very little to play for. There’s at least a bit of history, since head coach Mike Budenholzer was a long-time assistant under Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who is one of the greatest NBA coaches ever as well as one of the league’s leading voices on social justice. Basketball-wise, though, this one should be low-stakes.

Per NBA.com, the game will be broadcast on Bucks.com, and should be available on NBA League Pass. We’ll see you then!
