The Milwaukee Bucks could have pulled even with the New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference playoff race had they won last Wednesday night. Now, the Bucks face the alternative, trailing the Knicks by 2-games in the race with 8-games left to play.
The Bucks face the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills tonight and are in a “Must Win” mode the rest of the way. They may need to sweep the final 8 games to have a chance and that’s no guarantee.
After tonight, the Bucks will play 3 road games and 4 home games. They lead the season series over Detroit 2 games to 1.
