MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Milwaukee Bucks' coach Larry Drew says his players need to make better decisions, in order to reduce the high number of turnovers they're committing.
The Bucks have the N-B-A's 22nd-highest number of miscues per game at 14-point-nine -- and they're tied for 14th in forcing turnovers by opponents with 14-point-four a night.
Yesterday, Drew held a film session with the Bucks to show them the mistakes they made in Monday night's 22-point loss at Toronto. Milwaukee committed seven turnovers in the first quarter, which helped the Raptors pull away early. Drew says the Bucks have a very small margin-of-error. He says it's not so much about the "X's"-and-"O's," as it is about reading and responding to specific situations.
The Bucks are 7-and-30 going into a home game tonight against Memphis, which is 18-and-19.
Drew says small forward Khris Middleton sprained his left ankle at practice yesterday, and he's questionable for tonight's contest. The coach said forward John Henson made it through yesterday's practice okay. He played 17 minutes against the Raptors on Monday, after missing seven games with a bad ankle.
