Bucks overcome poor shooting

Club compensates with scrappy play

The results of the Milwaukee Bucks' last several games can make one wonder what would happen if they ever start shooting the ball well.



In their last six games, the Bucks have shot a combined 39% yet have found a way to win three of those games. A team that was expected to have one of the more potent offensive attacks in the league hasn't been able to shoot straight - but it has found other ways to win.

"It goes to show you there are a lot of ways to win games," coach Terry Stotts said.

The Bucks shot a chilly 40.7% Wednesday night against Philadelphia yet rallied in the second half to win. The Bucks won with a defensive effort and focus that pleased Stotts and held Philadelphia to 37 points in the second half. The Bucks also swarmed the boards and finished with a 55-38 rebounding advantage, including an 18-6 edge on the offensive glass.
