In the latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Best and Worst, we look at the team’s playoff prospects, their supreme road record, and much more.
Welcome back to the Milwaukee Bucks Best and Worst, our semi-regular look at the positive and negative aspects of the Bucks’ last few games!
Since the last update, Milwaukee has continued their winning ways, coming out on top in four of their last five games. Close victories over the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks were especially key during this time, as both teams are (or were) ahead of the Bucks for playoff seeding.
Going back further, the Bucks are also winners in 18 of their last 24 contests, a stretch that has seen them shoot up the Eastern Conference standings in an entirely unprecedented fashion.
With six games left in the regular season, the Bucks have a chance to make some history. You have to go back to 2009-10 to find the last time Milwaukee won more than 41 games in a single year.
With three of their remaining games coming against non-playoffs teams, the Bucks could wind up surpassing virtually all expectations that were laid out for them this year.
We’ll of course need to break down each factor that’s helped them to such success, as well as what challenges could be facing them in the playoffs and beyond.
Without further ado, let’s get into it!
