A picture of Larry O'Brien's championship trophy in the NBA as U.S. President Joe Biden welcomes Milwaukee Bucks to the southern lawn of the White House to honor the team for his NBA championship.

Reigning NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks has seven road trips this season in which they play at least three games and the Journal Sentinel will be there for most of them. With such long and varied journeys, not every note, quote or interesting piece makes its way to publication. So after each of those trips, the Bucks beat writer Jim Owczarski to summarize the week he was on the road, on and off the field.


November 7: 101-94 loss to Washington

November 8:Visit to the White House

November 9: Victory 118-109 against Philadelphia

November 10: 112-100 victory over New York

November 12: Loss 122-113 (OT) in Boston

November 14: Loss 120-100 from Atlanta

Take with you

On paper, the Bucks are an average team after 14 games. They are not completely healthy. But surprisingly, their performance during the trip makes me think that this team will be really dominant once the whole group is together and in their proper roles.
