CLEVELAND -- The Milwaukee Bucks don't seem to know who's going to play for them night to night. They're not really that good when they're entirely healthy.
They're not an embarrassment, because they really get after it.
We saw that Friday, when they dropped a 114-111 decision in overtime at Cleveland.
The Bucks really had no business playing the Cavaliers that closely. The Bucks were on the road, they used what coach Larry Drew uncomfortably described as "nine healthy bodies," and they started two guys whose names no one can pronounce or spell.
