Best Quote from the Game
"My message to the guys at the halftime was I didn't care about whether we won or lost the game, I cared about us playing the way I know we're capable of playing," new Bucks coach Larry Drew told the press during the post-game conference via ESPN. "That's all we did in the second half. We didn't do anything different than what we've been working on during the first day of training camp. Guys came back, overcame a 25-point deficit. Had a chance to win and just didn't make the plays at the end."
