The Milwaukee Bucks are fighting for their playoff lives, but last night they had no chance against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Oklahoma City jumped out to a 33-12 lead and were never threatened, on the way to a 109-89 win over the Bucks at the Bradley Center.
The Bucks (28-29) dropped back under the .500 mark and fell 1 1/2 games behind both New York and Philadelphia for the final two spots in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.
The Bucks, with emotions high, lost their cool. Of the seven technical fouls that were called, five of them were against the Bucks. Bucks forward Larry Sanders was ejected as the frustrations mounted.
Russell Westbrook had 26 points to lead the Thunder, while Ersan Ilyasova led the Bucks with 18 points.
Bucks coach Scott Skiles said this is no time to feel sorry for themselves with the Knicks coming to the Bradley Center on Wednesday night.
