The Bucks have clinched a playoff spot but suffered a bad loss on Thursday night at home.
The Brooklyn Nets came into town and used a big fourth quarter to win. Of course, they don’t have their first round draft pick this year, so they aren’t tanking. Milwaukee has played a lot of close games against good teams lately and it caught up with it in this game.
The loss cost the Bucks a chance to move into the seventh seed, which is a desirable spot in the Eastern Conference these days because it means a first round matchup against Boston, which will be without Kyrie Irving.
The Bucks are currently tied with Washington but will lose out on the tiebreaker. They probably have to win out to catch the Wiz, who finish with three winnable games: home against Atlanta, home against Boston and at Orlando.
Miami, which is only a game ahead, has a tougher slate: at New York and then home against OKC and Toronto.
More than anything, though, Milwaukee’s priority has to be getting Giannis some rest before the playoffs so that he can go HAM in the first round.
At some point, the Bucks have to consider sitting him down for a game or two to rest those skinny knees.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are hosting Miami on Friday night before the Bucks come in.
Tim Hardaway Jr. will be playing but I’m not sure who else will join him. Michael Beasley has been balling out but he missed Tuesday’s game with a sickness. He also missed Thursday’s practice, but I have a feeling he’ll be in the lineup against Miami; if not, he’ll be back for this game, one would think.
Enes Kanter has also expressed a desire to get back into the lineup after missing some time with back and wrist problems. He wants to play but I’m not as sold on the fact that he will, based on the chatter around his injuries. It sounds like he’s hurt.
That doesn’t leave much besides the Michigan duo — Trey Burke and Hardaway Jr. — plus Michael Beasley. Well, there’s Ntilikina and Mudiay in the backcourt, too. New York has enough guards to compete; it’s the front court that is thin.
It was already lacking before Porzingis and Kanter went down. Kyle O’Quinn has played hard down the stretch, but he’s overmatched against really skilled bigs at this level. And I’m not sure New York has any answer for the Greek Freak, defensively.
