Before Saturday night's 107-98 Milwaukee Bucks victory over the Orlando Magic, my wife and I met up with a college friend at Rock Bottom Brewery.
Everything was moving on schedule until a fairly intoxicated man stopped by our table and started talking. And talking. And talking. And talking.
Try as we might, through a litany of forced pauses and clock watching on our phones, he didn't leave. He was nice enough, but really it was our fault for letting him stick around longer than tolerable by sober minds.
In a nutshell, that's what it felt like watching the Bucks beat the Magic, who were playing without two of their best players (Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo). Orlando hung around thanks to a gluttonous night on the offensive glass (20 offensive rebounds) and some early Milwaukee miscues (11 TOs in the first half).
Bucks 107, Magic 98: Not perfect, but we'll take it
