The Milwaukee Brewers have been in the news a great deal over the past week. Hunter Renfroe was traded to the Los Angeles Angels for Janson Junk, Elvis Peguero, and Adam Seminaris. It is no secret that the Brewers are looking to retool their team. The bullpen really let them down last year, especially following the Josh Hader trade. In addition, light-hitting bats made offensive production somewhat of a rarity. It is one of the reasons why fans are initially unhappy with the Renfroe deal. He was one of the team’s most productive hitters. In any case, there are rumors…

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, and it was truly a tale of two halves for the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. At one point in the first half, the Cleveland Cavaliers led by as much as 17. However, the Bucks were able to make adjustments after halftime and dominated the second half. At one point, Milwaukee had outscored Cleveland 22-2 to take the lead. They never let it go again. There were plenty of solid performances, but I will highlight three. Three Studs Giannis Antetokounmpo There was a weird stretch in the first…

The Milwaukee Bucks (12-5) will play against the Cleveland Cavaliers (12-6) on Friday night in Milwaukee. The Bucks dominated the first matchup between the two teams this season, winning 113-98 on November 16. Since losing to Milwaukee, the Cavaliers have won four-straight games. Meanwhile, the Bucks have lost two of three games in that span. Of course, the player that most fans are excited to watch the most is Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has put up some very impressive numbers against the Cavaliers in his career. Here, I outline the five best games Giannis has played against Cleveland. Related: Bucks Injury Report…

Packers' Aaron Jones fined $10,527 for taunting Cowboys' Byron Jones

At 4-7, the Green Bay Packers need to play nearly flawless football if they are to have any hope in reaching the Playoffs. The team certainly lacks no confidence, though. Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love have each gone on record stating that the Packers can go 6-0 in their remaining games. Confidence is one thing, actually doing it is another. Running back Aaron Jones knows that, and had some strong words to that effect on Thursday.

The Milwaukee Bucks (12-5) are coming off of a rare loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Their 118-113 defeat at home to Chicago was just the second regular season loss to the Bulls in the Mike Budenholzer era. The Bucks will attempt to return to their winning ways on Friday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers (12-6). However, they may be short-handed as a couple players are battling non-COVID illnesses.

The Milwaukee Bucks will look to get back in the win column on Friday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Despite a 36-point and 11-rebound effort from Giannis Antetokounmpo on Wednesday, the Bucks fell to the Chicago Bulls 118-113. Milwaukee is now 3-5 since starting the season 9-0. If they are going to beat the Cavaliers (12-6), they will need other players to step up, especially with Khris Middleton and Joe Ingles still recovering. One player that Giannis believes has been a big part of the Bucks’ success is Jevon Carter. Giannis Praises Jevon Carter Following Loss to Bulls Jevon Carter,…

Packers Playmakers

The Green Bay Packers have had a run of terrible luck this season. While many of their losses can be chalked up to poor play and even poorer play-calling, their run of injuries certainly has not helped. Rashan Gary is out for the season with a torn ACL. David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins missed the beginning of the season recovering from their own ACL injuries. Christian Watson, Krys Barnes, Sammy Watkins, De’Vondre Campbell, Randall Cobb, and Romeo Doubs have all missed games with injuries. Even Aaron Rodgers has been playing over half the season with a broken thumb. On Thanksgiving,…

The Green Bay Packers have been dealing with some major injuries all season long. One of the positions in which they have suffered numerous injuries has been linebacker. Krys Barnes has been held to just three games this season due to a myriad of injuries. He got hurt in the Packers Week One loss to the Vikings. Barnes was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and missed seven games. He did not return until Week Nine, when he suffered a concussion. After missing Week Ten, Barnes returned for the Packers loss to the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately, he hurt his hand in…

The Wisconsin Badgers nearly knocked off the third-ranked team in the country, Kansas, in the Battle 4 Atlantis semi-finals. Unfortunately, the Jayhawks won on a last-second layup in overtime to stave off the unranked Badgers. Wisconsin may not be unranked for long thanks in large part to freshman Connor Essegian. The 6′ 4″ guard came off the bench to score 17 points while shooting 6-12 from the floor (3-7 from three). He also added five rebounds and an assist. In the Badgers last game, a one-point win over Dayton, Essegian scored 13 points, again shooting 50% from the field (3-6…
