The Milwaukee Bucks finished a 1-5 roadtrip yesterday afternoon with an overtime loss in Houston. The Bucks havent won in Houston in 10 years but they certainly had a chance yesterday. Despite blowing numerous chances to finish strong they still had a chance to win at the end of regulation. Milwaukee had the ball with 18 seconds remaining and called a timeout to set up a possible game winning shot. Brandon Jennings took the inbound pass and dribbled around before launching a long three pointer...not the shot Scott Skiles was looking for. You've got to love the talent and exuberance with which Jennings plays...but you are also going to get the bad decision making that comes with any young player. Milwaukee is back home for a game with Toronto tomorrow night.

Songs of the Day
Don't Explain-Billie Holiday (1944) She co-wrote it and sang it better that the scores of re-makes that have been done.
Don't Fear the Reaper-Blue Oyster Cult (1976) One of the great guitar lines runs through this classic. Writer and lead singer Buck Dharma says despite how some may interpret the lyrics...it's not a suicide song.
