TEAMS: Bucks (6-2) vs. Charlotte Bobcats (4-4).

WHEN: 6 p.m. Monday.

WHERE: Time Warner Cable Arena.

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

ABOUT THE BOBCATS: Charlotte has a new front line featuring Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Brendan Haywood and Byron Mullens, and Haywood and Mullens are both 7-footers. But Mullens can stretch the defense with his perimeter shooting ability. Point guard Kemba Walker is playing at a high level in his second season, and former Bucks guard Ramon Sessions is playing a valuable role off the bench. Already the Bobcats have four victories. They had a three-game winning streak snapped in a 94-87 home loss to Memphis on Saturday night, after beating Dallas, Washington and Minnesota in succession. Charlotte recently acquired forward Hakim Warrick from New Orleans and he made his Bobcats debut against the Grizzlies (five points, four rebounds in 10 minutes).

Milwaukee should win, but Charlotte's much better this year than they were last year. Mullens drives me crazy because he's taking over five and a half threes a game and making fewer than 30% of them, but his rebounding is also much improved (up to around 9/game). I figure this is going to be a shootout between Jennings/Ellis and Walker/Gordon/Sessions with a forward from one of the two teams (probably Ersan or MKG) going off for a very high rebounding number.

Bobcats have definitely made a lot of improvement. I won't be taking them lightly, and Kemba Walker makes me nervous. Not to mention MKG.

I know we keep pointing at Ersan but now would be as good a time as ever to step up.

Bobcats always seem to play us well. However, I think we get the win. I remember last Mullens destroying us either last year or the year before.

I get out of class to hear the Bucks tie up the Bobcats, and listen for a bit. when i finally get to turn on the game, they're ahead with around 3:30 left and suddenly, it's a tie game, and boom, they lose.

Gotta finish those games, and not make silly fouls.

It's a bad loss, but still a very promising start for the Bucks. I wasn't aware they were 6-2. That's pretty impressive.
