TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets (0-3) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (0-3).

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Monday.

WHERE: Barclays Center.

BROADCASTS: TV — FS Wisconsin. Radio — AM-620.

ABOUT THE NETS: Brooklyn has faced a difficult schedule to open the season, playing Chicago at home and San Antonio and Memphis on the road. So it's not too surprising the Nets are off to a winless start. Bojan Bogdanovich came off the bench to score 19 points in the Nets' 101-91 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday. Andrea Bargnani has joined the Nets after a disappointing stint with the crosstown New York Knicks. Bargnani is the first No. 1 overall pick to play for the Nets since Kenyon Martin, who was drafted first by New Jersey in 2000. Bargnani was the first overall pick by Toronto in 2006.

Monroe is looking like a solid signing for us. Defense has a ways to go yet, but the offense seems to be coming together.

Giannis is an all-star this year if he keeps playing like he has been. He's hitting outside shots, he's gotten much more aggressive, and he's showing the handles we've all been dreaming he might get.

I mean, every time Giannis touches the ball I'm expecting something exciting. There's not many players you can say about that, let alone who are 20 years old.
