The 4-20 are back home to host the 10-11 Milwaukee Bucks. Despite losing Andrew Bogut for the season, this Bucks team is playing well. Milwaukee picked up two big wins during its 3-0 home-stand by defeating Miami and the Lakers.
The Bucks will be going for their second win against the Pistons in five days. The Pistons however need this one to stop the slide of their seven game losing streak.
- The good: Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight.
- The bad: Charlie V and Ben Gordon still out for Detroit. Most likely Vanilla Ice.

- The unknown: Can Brandon have a better game against the other Brandon.
Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports. If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 the Ticket.

I’m all over it!
Even though my team is going through some tough times, I’m going to head out to the games to give them support. I can’t wait for my Greg Monroe Poster on Friday night.
