Is This Good? Bucks Clinch a Playoff Spot Before March
I’m back from my European vacation. I’m happy to be back and writing again. We should have a full day of blog posts and stories for you to check out. We start our day with the Milwaukee Bucks. They’ve clinched a playoff spot on February 23rd. With the Washington Wizards losing last night to the Chicago Bulls, that meant Milwaukee found themselves as a team to clinch the playoffs on February 23rd. They’re the earliest team to clinch a playoff spot in NBA history. Not the 73-win Warriors, not the 72-win Bulls, but the Milwaukee Bucks will go down as the earliest teams to clinch in playoff history.

What a dominating season it has been thus far for the Milwaukee Bucks. There is a chance for 70+ wins for the Milwaukee Bucks. It is not going to be easy, but they’re up for the challenge. They do have a difficult schedule starting tomorrow night against the Toronto Raptors. When they tip off against Toronto, that will begin a stretch for the Bucks where they play nine games in their next eleven against teams with records better than .500. For the critics who contribute the Bucks’ schedule for being the reason they’re so good, this is a chance to shut that up too.
Later today, I’ll write about what I saw from the extended highlights I watched of both the Detroit and Philadelphia games last week. Let’s just say, this team plays much better when it’s been resting for a few days.
