This Bucks Season Is Over
And A Gloomy Future Is Approaching
I laid down the gauntlet before the Bucks tipped against the Bobcats.
If you can't beat a team just ahead of you in the race for the final playoff spot, you don't deserve the postseason berth.
Now many would argue any team under .500 shouldn't have a season extended, but nevertheless...the Bucks still had a shot with a win in Charlotte, trailing the Pacers by 2 games.
Instead, the Bucks had 5...count them, 5 shots...at least 3 from point blank range...to beat the Bobcats. The sad thing is, this team just doesn't seem to have a closer when it counts.
Now 6 games remain on the road, just 3 at home...while Indiana beats the Celtics to go up 3 games with 9 to play.
The Bucks say they have to go 8-1 in order to make it? What makes you think that will happen?
And with the NBA ready to shut down with labor strife in the offseason, not a lot to be positive about at this time...
