The Milwaukee Bucks are probably pleased to be playing in a warmer climate tonight when they face the San Antonio Spurs at 7 PM EST. Here is the TV info for that one just to get the nitty gritty details out of the way.
TV: FS-Wisconsin, Southwest, DTV: 669, 677, 756, 757
Just because the Bucks will be happier to be in a warmer region does not mean they will win the game though, and expecting the Spurs to win and to cover the spread (-15.5) even though it is enormous. That is how little faith I have in the Bucks’ talent level; they might cover the spread, but would honestly be surprised.
Point guard Tony Parker will be sitting for this one, but power forward Tim Duncan will be in so that is a bonus. He is definitely the greatest power forward to ever play the game, and the insanity is that his career is not yet over. He came one three point jump shot from winning a fifth ring last July, and that would have put him up in some pretty elite company.
The Bucks on the other hand? They are still repping their Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Oscar Robertson title from 1971, which seems to have completely faded from the overall basketball consciousness. Amazed how often the “Big O” gets overlooked; sorry will hop off the soap box now.
That is all for today, and as always will leave you with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom.
