DELFINO: Plenty of Bucks from the Bench

Milwaukee Bucks swingman Carlos DELFINO provided plenty of fire power from the bench as his team defeated the New Jersey Nets, 98-76.

DELFINO, who had scored 10 points in the Bucks’ last five games, tallied 17 points as the Bucks won for only the fourth time in 15 road games. The game was the best in weeks for Carlos, who was 7 of 11 from the field with 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals. He had only scored in double figures once in the past 10 games.

“I thought Carlos played with a lot of energy,” said Bucks coach Scott SKILES, who did not play DELFINO against Oklahoma City in their previous game. “He had active hands defensively, he got out in the open floor and he was hitting his shots. When he’s active like that, he’s a good enough player that things are going to happen for him.”

Another bench power of the night was Andres NOCIONI who posted 19 points, 2 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block shot but his team was unable to avoid losing to the Phoenix Suns, 109-113.

Luis SCOLA also with big numbers as he posted 15 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block shot but the Houston Rockets went down to the Los Angeles Lakers 79-88.

Back in the starting line up for the Washington Wizards was Fabricio OBERTO who posted just 2 points, 5 rebounds and 1 steal against Philadelphia 76ers. The Wizards won the game 194-97.

The Bucks out scored the Nets by 32 points when Delfino was on the floor. Carlos needs to play with passion every game to get back in the starting line-up, he just hasn't been himself this season so far, hopefully that trend is ending.
