The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as the Bucks got blown out at home in a game they’ll want to forget.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we get the reaction to the Bucks’ Saturday night letdown against the Orlando Magic, catch up with continued analysis of Milwaukee’s standing in the East, Nikola Mirotic‘s addition, and more.

The Bucks losing on the second night of a back-to-back, without their best player, and against a team that had won three of their last four games probably shouldn’t be as shocking as it actually is. That acts as a testament to just how consistent the Bucks have been this season, and also provides the reason why for as ugly as Saturday’s loss was, there’s no reason to believe it’s cause for larger concern.
