The Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Denver Nuggets 104-78 last night, subduing any unfounded optimism that resulted from winning the first two preseason games.
Anyway, six stats from the game:
- The Bucks were outscored in each quarter of the game including a particularly damaging 33-15 third quarter.
- Guard Royal Ivey came off the bench to play a team-high 32 minutes and scored 11 points, grabbed five rebounds, but didn’t dish out any assists.
- Yi Jianlian scored six points along with six rebounds in the first quarter.
- The Bucks tallied 19 offensive rebounds compared to just nine for the Nuggets.
- Starters Dan Gadzuric, Yi Jianlian, Desmond Mason, Charlie Bell, and Mo Williams totaled just three assists in 105 minutes combined.
- Jake Voskuhl grabbed seven rebounds in just 15 minutes but turned the ball over four times and didn’t score.
