Bucks Watch: Who Survives The Back-to-Back?
Milwaukee Bucks found themselves in the six seed after last night’s 118-108 win against Charlotte Hornets. Bucks received some breathing room too as Indiana fell to Minnesota putting them one game behind. Atlanta Hawks broke their losing streak to keep pace with Milwaukee. Now, many of these teams are back at it again tonight with a back-to-back where some are harder than others.
Bucks – 6th Seed
I said it last night that it’s a house money game for Milwaukee. They are likely not beating Boston on the road who have won seven straight at home and prove to be a bad matchup for Bucks in the past winning five of the last six. Milwaukee will need some help tonight.
Hawks – 5th Seed
They are another back-o-back participant as they head to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers. Sixers play teams tough, so do not pencil in Atlanta for the victory in this one. Dennis Schroder is playing amazing ball currently.
Heat – 8th seed
Another team, another back-to-back. Like Bucks, this is all on the road. Heat had an emotional win on Tuesday with a Hassan Whiteside tip-in to basically extinguish the Detroit Pistons playoff hopes. They head to New York to play hapless Knicks. These two getting together always brings back memories though.
Pacers – 7th seed
Once again, a back-to-back and Pacers face another tough interior team with Memphis Grizzlies. Marc Gasol has been out with an injury, but Zach Randolph has been playing masterfully since his time away. Pacers would like to avoid a losing streak at this time of the year.
