For many fans, they didn’t believe it until they saw it. After a 149-day NBA lockout, the 2011-2012 NBA season officially kicked off on Christmas day with a five-game opener.
But before Sunday, teams across the league geared up to play preseason games. The Milwaukee Bucks faced the Minnesota Timberwolves during the preseason, as they competed in the 35th Annual MACC Fund Game last Wednesday at the Bradley Center.
While the Bucks lost to the T-Wolves, the game was action-packed with Brandon Jennings (No. 3), Charles Delfino (No. 10) new Bucks starter Stephen Jackson (No. 5) doing what they do best.
