The Bucks and Hawks meet in Atlanta Saturday night, as both teams will be in the 2nd leg of a back to back.
While Atlanta is poised for the playoffs, the Bucks sit in 13th in the East. Luckily for them, they do trail the 8 seed by just 5.5 games, but will need to jump a compliment of teams if they hope to make a push at the postseason.
Milwaukee had dropped 5 straight games and it looked like this team was ready to pack it in.
However, they won their final 2 games prior to the break, giving them some hope they still have time to make one more push. The Bucks do sit in 13th place, but with how weak the Eastern Conference has been, they still do have a chance at making a run.
With the trade deadline passed, the Bucks decided to keep their roster the way it was. With their very poor first half, the Bucks were at the center of many trade rumors.
Two of the most popular names were Greg Monroe and Jabari Parker.
The duo has led the Bucks, but after the Bucks took many calls about them, they decided to stand pat.
Now, Milwaukee is ready for the drive in the 2nd half along with Khris Middleton who leads the team in scoring with 17.9 points per game.
Atlanta, like Milwaukee, was at the center of trade rumors.
This Hawks team has underachieved, considering their standards set last season, but after a strong finish to the first half of the season, Atlanta decided to stand pat as well.
Last season’s number 1 seed in the East sits in 4th place and will have a lot of work to do to get up to the top, but they do find themselves 7 games over .500 after flirting with the .500 mark a lot during the first half.
To close out the first half, the Hawks finished by scoring over 100 points in 5 of their 6 games. Atlanta had struggled to reach that plateau prior to that as they hit a stretch where they didn’t reach 100 points in 5 of 6.
That is kind of the story of the first half for Atlanta as they simply never found consistency.
They do get Milwaukee at home here, a place where they are 17-9 and playing extremely well.
