Milwaukee Bucks vs. New Jersey Nets: Former Nets Trample Their Old Team

Only the New Jersey Nets could make the Milwaukee Bucks look like the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Bucks reared their mighty antlers as they captured a 115-92 win over the Nets at “The Rock” in Newark Saturday evening.

The Nets were without Devin Harris, and it definitely showed. Derrick Favors started his third career game in this contest.

The Bucks came out shooting hot and opened a 13-point lead to close the first quarter. However, the Nets got some instant energy from Kris Humphries off the bench to keep it a relatively close game.

New Jersey was able to close the lead to as small as seven points, but it seemed that every time the Nets mounted a comeback, the Bucks would come down the floor and hit an easy shot.

Milwaukee led by 10 at the break. John Salmons was lights out from the perimeter and scored 12 points in the half. Corey Maggette and Ersan Ilyasova were also in double figures for the half.

Whatever Avery Johnson said to his team at halftime did not sink in as the Bucks were able to open a 25 point lead to start the second half. The Nets were nowhere to be found on the defensive end.
