Bucks clinch 8th spot in Eastern Conference playoffs

The Milwaukee Bucks clinched their first playoff spot in three years with Saturday night’s 100-83 win over the Toronto Raptors at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Getting into the post season is a good thing.  Unfortunately, with 6-games left to play, the Bucks chances of overtaking Boston for the 7th spot is fading fast.  It means the Bucks will likely open the first round of the playoffs in Miami against the Heat.  That also likely means a quick 1st round exit.

The Bucks are in Miami to face the Heat on Tuesday night.

Milwaukee trails the Celtics by 2 1/2 games but do hold the tiebreaker over the Celtics based on winning their head-to-head regular season series.
