Milwaukee Bucks Daily: Sluggish Sunday Afternoon Performance Strikes Again


The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as for the second week in a row the Bucks were undone by a Sunday afternoon game.

In this edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we’ll look back on Sunday’s loss to Dallas, read about Giannis’ transformation, how the Bucks have bounced back from adversity this season, and much more.

With only five games remaining in the regular season, the Bucks hold a three-game lead over the ninth placed Indiana Pacers. In other words, the team’s playoff spot is now almost a certainty.

The battle for seeding leaves plenty still to play for in the next 10 days, and if you want to stay on top of all the latest news surrounding the team, we’re here to help. This piece will be on site every morning with anything you might have missed from us at Behind the Buck Pass, and also a selection of the best pieces from elsewhere around the internet.
