Philadelphia’s magic number to clinch the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference is down to 2. Any combination of 76er’s wins or Milwaukee Bucks losses totaling 2 would give the 76er’s the final playoff spot.
The Bucks fell apart in the second half last night, falling to Indiana 118-109. It’s the 7th straight win for the Pacers and it earned them home court advantage in the 1st round of the NBA playoffs.
The Bucks on the other hand, have picked the wrong time to go cold. They lost for the 5th time in the last 6 games.
Danny Granger had 29 points and David West added 21 points and 14 rebounds in the win. The Pacers swept the season series from the Bucks.
Brandon Jennings had 27 points in the loss. The Bucks are off today. They’ll host New Jersey on Saturday night at the Bradley Center.
