Bucks report: Getting inside

As one might imagine, the Bucks' locker room isn't the happiest place to be these days.

The Bucks have had a deeply disappointing season and, barring a last-minute surge, will miss the playoffs.

One player who has been noticeably frustrated is young point guard Brandon Jennings. He recently vented about his role, saying that last season, when the Bucks advanced to the playoffs, the Bucks' offense ran through him. This season, Jennings claimed, he isn't the focal point of the offense.

Some of his teammates have privately grumbled and saying the chemistry that was so obvious and beneficial last season has vanished.

Even Bucks coach Scott Skiles recently revealed his frustration. Asked about his team's lack of consistency, Skiles said, "That's not really anything I want to say publicly... if you don't mind."

BUCKS 95, WIZARDS 76: The Bucks rode the coattails of their starting backcourt in beating the Wizards Tuesday night in Washington. Point guard Brandon Jennings finished with 23 points and shooting guard John Salmons totaled 22 points. Salmons was highly instrumental in the Bucks' fast start as he scored 18 points in the first half as the Bucks took a 51-36 lead.
