Milwaukee Bucks Tweet of the Week
Man, it does feel good to be in the Playoffs right now. Behind the play of Giannis Antetokounmpo and the remarkable return of Khris Middleton, this team is clicking on all cylinders.
The Bucks have now won 10 of their last 12 games and are shooting up the rankings in the Eastern Conference. Right now, this is a team that nobody will want to play in the postseason and that is just the way Bucks fans want it.
The team just closed out a massive six-game road trip where they went 4-2. The closing schedule is not the easiest in the NBA, but with a home game against the Atlanta Hawks (currently the five seed by 1.0 games) coming up next, the Bucks have a legitimate shot at being the five seed in the NBA Playoffs.
Now, without further introduction, let’s get into the player rankings based on their play over this past week.
