Quarterback Brock Osweiler on Friday signed with the Dolphins, his fourth team in two seasons but reuniting him with Miami head coach Adam Gase, who was his offensive coordinator with the Broncos from 2012-14.
Osweiler has played in 42 NFL games — including 25 starts in which he is 13-12 — since Denver drafted him in the second round (57th overall) in the 2012 draft.
Since going 5-2 as Peyton Manning’s regular-season injury replacement with the eventual Super Bowl champion Broncos in 2015, Osweiler has been on the move.
The pace picked up again once facilitators Bledsoe and Middleton (18 points) re-entered the game, with Milwaukee taking a 45-42 lead at halftime.
Vucevic added 10 rebounds to pick up his 29th double-double of the season. … Biyombo was 6 of 7 from the field. … The Bucks with a regular season record of 668-536 in their 30 seasons at the Bradley Center.
“Complacency. I think that is kind of what happens to a young team with early wins.” — Gordon, on Orlando’s struggles after starting 8-4 this season.
Last month, Manning turned down Fox’s offer to be the lead analyst for “Thursday Night Football” after already turning down ESPN’s offer to take over for Jon Gruden on “Monday Night Football.”
Fox acquired the rights to “Thursday Night Football” through 2022 for $3.3 billion in January.
“We are growing a culture,” Brown said. “And, oh by the way, we’ve won 50 games and we have home-court advantage and we’ve tied a record. That’s true. But that is never really what’s most on my mind.”
Harrison Barnes scored 21 points on 9-of-25 shooting, and Dennis Smith Jr. added 20 points for the Mavericks, who have lost three straight and six of seven.
“I thought we played pretty hard,” Carlisle said. “This is a very hard team to play.”
