The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as with a playoff secured, the collective focus switches to matchups.

In this edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we look ahead to potential playoff matchups, continue to consider Malcolm Brogdon‘s Rookie of the Year case, and consider one of the most intriguing prospects in the draft.

The Bucks wrap up their home regular season schedule on Monday night against the Charlotte Hornets, in a game which should have a significant impact toward finalizing playoff position. Very simply, a win for the Bucks means they can be no worse than sixth.
