The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as the Bucks playoff dream ended with a heroic effort that just fell short.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we look at the reaction to Game 6 and the Bucks’ elimination from the playoffs, and much more.

It’s been an incredible and eventful season for the Bucks, but it came to an end on Thursday night as Milwaukee just couldn’t manage to dig themselves out of one last hole despite an impressive late rally. Still, the team provided great cause for optimism and signal what seems guaranteed to be an exciting road ahead.

Although the season has ended, we’ll keep going all throughout the summer here at Behind the Buck Pass, and this daily column will be a good place to get a snapshot of all of the latest Bucks news until the team takes to the floor again in October.
