Taking a Peak at the Milwaukee Bucks Remaining Schedule

If you didn’t know, last night the Sixers lost (you probably knew that), but more importantly, the Bucks won! That was crucial, as the Sixers are now one game out of the worst record in the NBA. The Bucks are 14-58 and the Sixers stand at 15-57. If the Sixers want the best chance to land the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, the Sixers need to catch the Bucks. It doesn’t guarantee the No. 1 overall pick, but it makes the percentage of landing the pick that much greater. Maybe the Bucks want Joel Embiid and this will all be worthless. But, lets have some fun instead. That being said, let’s take a look at the remaining games on the Bucks schedule.

Bucks Remaining Schedule:

3/29 vs Miami

3/31 @ Detroit

4/2 @ Miami

4/4 @ Chicago

4/5 vs Toronto

4/9 vs Pacers

4/11 vs Cavaliers

4/12 @ Wizards

4/14 @ Toronto

Well…this is going to be a lot harder than we all thought. Currently on a 26 game losing streak, the Sixers still haven’t captured the worst record in the NBA. One word can describe the Bucks remaining schedule and that’s brutal. Two games against Miami and Toronto, a game against Chicago and a visit with the Pacers. The only thing the Sixers can hope is that playoff seeding is determined by the time the Bucks play the Wizards and Raptors, so maybe the starters aren’t playing.

The Bucks have been playing teams extremely hard lately. Milwaukee lost to the GSW and Trail Blazers by five points and lost to the Clippers by eight points. Victories would have been better, obviously, but this team could potentially upset someone. You never know when Miami is going to sit LeBron or Dwyane Wade, so that could play in our favor.

To be honest, it’s going to be hard to catch the Bucks. The good thing is, Philly only needs them to win two or three more games. That could happen against Cleveland and Detroit. It’s not going to be easy, but it can definitely happen. Weird things always happen at the end of the season, hopefully the Bucks can keep this trend going. The Bucks beat the Lakers last night — only if they could play the Lakers every night, right? We all have to pray that the Bucks catch one of these superior teams on the wrong end of a back-to-back or that something just goes terribly wrong. All we have is hope, right?
