If you were one of the many fans who wrote off this young Bucks team and started dreaming of a high draft pick, then you’ve probably been surprised by the team’s tremendous play as of late.
Faithful fans were hoping that the Bucks would get a boost when Khris Middleton returned to the lineup but after Jabari Parker went down with an injury, most seemed to believe it would be a wash. Nobody could have guessed how stingy this Bucks defense would become as they turned their season around and made a mad dash for the playoffs.
K-Midd and Giannis Antetokounmpo paced Milwaukees scorers with an anemic 16 points a piece. It didn’t seem like a valiant effort but coupled with tough defense, it proved enough to sink the Clippers yet again.
The Bucks are getting back to the fundamentals and are heating up at the right time as they have now won seven of their last eight games. They are now 1-1 with 4 games left on a west coast trip that includes stops at the Lakers, Warriors, Blazers and Kings.
