Thomas helps shut down Bucks' Bogut

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Although Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut missed some shots he normally makes, you have to give Bulls center Kurt Thomas a lot credit for holding Bogut to four points on 2-for-12 shooting.

Thomas played solid post defense and never let Bogut get into any sort of rhythm.

"Kurt Thomas did a phenomenal job," Bulls forward Carlos Boozer said. "That's go-to and Kurt did a great job against Bogut."

Thomas played with the Bucks last season and faced Bogut every day in practice.

"He's very talented," Thomas said of Bogut. "He can shoot the jump hook with either hand, he's very athletic and can really get off his feet, he has great tough around the basket and is a good finisher. He runs the floor well. He's a big body and he knows how to use it. He's very solid. He wasn't a No. 1 pick for nothing."
