Jabari Parker decided to take matters into his own hands Wednesday night after referee CJ Washington left him high and dry.
The Milwaukee Bucks rookie tried to shake Washington’s hand as the clock wound down on Milwaukee’s 103-86 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the ref did not oblige.
That’s always an awkward situation, but we think Parker handled it pretty well.
Thanks in part to a renewed focus on defense, the Milwaukee Bucks are back on track during their best start in nine years.
Looking to stymie offensively challenged Detroit for the second time in four days, the surprising Bucks can match a season high with a third straight win Friday night, while the last-place Pistons will try to avoid their longest losing streak in 20 months.

If Larry Sanders is to become an all-star player in the NBA, he will need to further develop his offensive game.
Sanders is an incredible athlete and great defender, but he is not much of an offensive threat. His scoring usually comes from dunks and put-back opportunities.

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- The reserves of the Milwaukee Bucks have adopted a saying that's become more of a mindset early on this season.

Potential is a slippery slope. It is a variable-laden, ticking time bomb.
Too often players are boasted and prodded around as the future of the NBA, and then they end up hovering along the D-League wall.
Then there are players who fly – somewhat – under the radar. They excite with flashes of skill and physical prowess.
