Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2009-11-24

Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2009-11-24Heading into the season, Bucks coach Scott Skiles felt comfortable with his reserve corps.

Skiles contended that the Bucks' bench was definitely better than a year ago, especially with the offseason additions of veterans Kurt Thomas and Hakim Warrick.

Thomas was acquired in a multi-player deal with the Spurs, and Warrick was signed during free agency after playing the last four seasons for the Grizzlies.

Thomas and Warrick have been especially productive in recent games. With center Andrew Bogut sidelined, Thomas grabbed seven rebounds in the Bucks' 95-88 victory over the Bobcats on Friday night and then grabbed 10 boards in the Bucks' 103-98 triumph over the Grizzlies on Saturday night.

As for Warrick, he almost had a double-double against the Bobcats with 16 points and nine rebounds. Warrick then scored eight points against the Grizzlies.

One other reserve who has stepped up is point guard Luke Ridnour, who had eight points and three assists against the Bobcats before recording a double-double with 13 points and 12 assists against the Grizzlies.

Just how productive was the Bucks' bench in those two games? They outscored the Bobcats' reserves 36-22 and then outscored the Grizzlies' reserves 35-16.

SPURS 112, BUCKS 98: With Andrew Bogut sidelined, the Bucks didn't have any answer for Spurs Hall of Famer in-waiting Tim Duncan at San Antonio. Duncan finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds and did the bulk of his damage in the third quarter.

That's when he scored 13 points in the period and helped the Spurs move to an 87-74 advantage. Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova had perhaps his best game of the season, finishing with a team-high 20 points.
