It's never too soon to start spreading the "Fear the Deer" word for next season. The mantra caught on like crazy at the end of last season, and if you think it's gonna change for next year, you're nuts.
Imagine how much dap you'll get rocking a Fear the Deer shirt at the State Fair or Summerfest? ('Member to tell 'em Uncut Raw sent ya!)
In honor of the fact that the huge Bucks win was in ATL, I'm going to call that game what it was:
So So Def!
I missed the first quarter, but I was on the edge of my seat for the last three. Admittedly, in the third when the Hawks jumped up by thirteen, I was like, "Well, that's it. The Bucks gave 'em a good one, but no way is a team going to lose a double digit lead late in the second half at home." But I'll be dipped if the Bucks didn't get grittier on defense and the glass and start hitting clutch-ass shots (I'm lookin' at you, Delfino.)
Let's take care of business back in the BC on Friday!
I'll admit a four point lead at the half had me a little nervous, but the Bucks finished strong (a little stretch of sloppy ball mid-second half notwithstanding) to tie the series at two apiece. Let's hope the Hawks are on their heels a little bit and have some doubt creeping into their minds on the trip back to Atlanta so Milwaukee can clinch the series on Friday back in the Bradley Center.
