Trans. Mar 15 5:54 ET (Mar 15 5:54 ET ) The acquisition of Gary Neal from the Milwaukee Bucks may pay dividends for the Charlotte Bobcats if he is able to do what it takes to get on the court. Neal and Luke Ridnour will return to Milwaukee on Sunday to face the team that traded them last month as the Bobcats seek a fourth straight win. Milwaukee (13-53) sent Neal and Ridnour to Charlotte (32-34) on Feb. 20 for Jeff Adrien and Ramon Sessions. Neal complained about his role with the Bucks and clashed with coach Larry Drew and center Larry Sanders, who is out indefinitely with a fractured orbital bone.
Ramon Sessions hit 4-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal off the bench in Wednesday's loss.
The Scoop:Sessions cooled off slightly, but he's scored in double digits in four straight games, averaging 13.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 0.8 steals over his last five. If you're desperate for a point guard, or own Mo Williams (hip injury), Sessions and Will Bynum are both worth a look, despite coming off their team's bench.
Ramon Sessions scored 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) with two rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Magic.
The Scoop:Naturally his numbers improved playing against a bad team in the Magic, but it's worth noting that Sessions continues to emerge as one of the team's more reliable players. He's still a deep league value on a per-game basis, but if he does something similar in the next one we might change that assessment. Fat O.J. Mayo played four minutes tonight.
For about a three-minute stretch of the second half, Milwaukee's Brandon Knight just could not be stopped. A rousing dunk on the break off a high outlet pass saved by teammate Ramon Sessions. Knight scored 11 straight points during a stretch between the third and fourth quarters to help the Bucks erase an 18-point deficit and defeat the Orlando Magic 105-98 on Monday night. The Bucks fed off their lead guard once Knight got going.
Ersan Ilyasova scored 16 points and added 11 rebounds, his seventh double-double of the season, to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a victory over the Orlando Magic, 105-98. This is only the third win for Milwaukee (13-50) in its last 10 games. Milwaukee also got solid performances from Brandon Knight with 24 points and 6 assists, Khris Middleton with 21 points and 7 assists, and Ramon Sessions with 16 points and 8 assists. Despite the loss, Moe Harkless put up 14 points for Orlando on 5-10 shooting, including 3-7 from behind the arc.
