Bucks 102, Pistons 89: Greg Monroe, Michael Beasley provide the offense

Bucks 102, Pistons 89: Greg Monroe, Michael Beasley provide the offense”

Milwaukee led by 17 at the half in winning its first back to back games in the last month, with only a road contest at Brooklyn Wednesday night before the All Star break. The Pistons fell for the fifth time in their past six visits to Milwaukee.

In their first game after losing Parker, the Bucks were embarrassed by the Lakers, who cruised to a 122-106 victory.

"Our focus wasn't as great as it needs to be today, especially in a game we needed to win", said Pistons forward Tobias Harris, who was held to 6 points on 3-of-11 shooting. "Fourteen guys ready to play at a high level". "This would have been a big win for us". Beasley is filling in for Jabari Parker (out for season, knee surgery) and his 23 points were the most he's scored since he had 28 on January 10. "Us being family, me being his brother, you have to pick up the slack and hold the fort down until he gets back". "They played well, they beat us up on the offensive glass".

Beasley got hot quickly, pouring in 10 points in the first quarter on 5-of-5 shooting. "With Jabari down and Giannis not making shots, you can't just call it a night". That duo combined for 48 points on 22-of-28 shooting. The Nets were plagued by two lengthy scoring droughts in the first and second quarters and allowed Memphis point guard Mike Conley to score 11 straight points down the stretch.

"We have a deep roster", Beasley said. "We're getting closer, but we haven't been able to make the plays and get the stops we need to bust through". "I thought he hit some tough pull-up fadeaways where we had a hand up", Van Gundy said.

If the Bucks beat the woeful Nets in Brooklyn on Wednesday night, they'll enter the All-Star Break on a three-game winning streak, their longest since January 4. Although there are reports, nothing is imminent and Lopez scored 17 points Monday. "We were just playing basketball the right way". "We're gaining confidence and we feel like we've played well the last five or so games, so we just have to keep building on that". It wasn't enough to challenge the Bucks, who were 9 of 14 from the field in the fourth quarter.
