Bay Area Strip Clubs Be On Alert: The Bucks Are In Town To Play The Warriors
You may have heard by now that Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd is pretty pissed over the behavior of certain members of his team earlier this week. The Bucks broke the Warriors' 24-game winning streak on Saturday in Milwaukee -- and there was much rejoicing (a little too much, according to the Warriors. But more on that in a minute).
Then the Bucks left for a four-game road trip, swinging through California for three games against the Lakers, Clippers and Warriors, and then the Suns. With a three-day break before meeting the Lakers, on Monday night certain Bucks players visited an LA strip club at stayed out until at least 2 a.m., as documented by TMZ. The Bucks then lost to the Lakers on Tuesday, 113-95. The Lakers.
Do you think the Bucks going to the "strip club" the night before playing the Lakers factored into the loss? pic.twitter.com/xkxFabgx84

Kidd was not pleased, and said that he told his players so. But then he said this to the press:
Kidd on 4 players at strip club night before Lakers: "This is a young team learning to be professional."

@cf_gardner I can't really judge their professionalism until I hear how they tipped.

The problem with Kidd's youth excuse is that the four players photographed at the strip club have a combined experience of 22 years, with the least experienced one being four years. There may have been other players there -- I don't know.
But what is clear is that the Bucks are 10-17 in the Eastern Conference Central, in last place -- and with the Cavaliers, Bulls and Pacers ahead of them in the division, they're not going anywhere. So they treated the Golden State win like their championship, and had to go celebrate.
Sad. really. But like Kidd said, the team as a whole is young. Better times are ahead.
But probably not tonight.
Will @Warriors exact revenge on Bucks? Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has GS favored by 19.5 pts, largest favorite in an NBA game this season.

The Warriors are still fuming over what they say was unprofessionalism by the Bucks during their loss in Milwaukee -- the seventh game of a seven-game road trip for Golden State. Klay Thompson, for one, called the Bucks classless for the way they acted during garbage time in the game. Stephen Curry said that the Bucks were "having a lot of fun. It was a big game for them. Friday will be a big game for us."
Friday is here. Milwaukee and the Warriors tip off at Oracle Arena at 7:30 p.m. (ET) on Fox Sports and CSN Bay Area. Watch it live or, you know, record it while you're out at the club.
