The Milwaukee Bucks have won 5 of their last 6 games to climb back into the NBA’s Eastern Conference playoff picture. The Bucks are 3-games under .500 (23-26) and can reach the all-star break at 1-under with a pair of wins. They’re percentage points behind Miami for the 8th and final playoff spot in the East and just a game behind Chicago and Charlotte, who hold down the 6th and 7th spots.
The Bucks host the Detroit Pistons (17-32) tonight. Detroit has dropped 6 of their last 8 games overall, but have won 10 of their last 14 against the Bucks. The Bucks then travel to New Jersey to take on the Nets (4-46) on Wednesday, two winnable basketball games, according to Bucks coach Scott Skiles.
The Bucks enter tonight’s game with a 7-game Bradley Center winning streak.
