The Milwaukee Bucks have all but captured the top seed in the East, so here are three things to make the last eight games meaningful to watch.
The NBA season is set to resume at the end of July with eight regular season games to decide playoff teams and seeding. The Milwaukee Bucks, however, are a shoe-in for the number one seed as they are currently 6.5 games ahead of the Toronto Raptors for the top spot in the East.
So, with the Eastern Conference essentially wrapped up, how can the Bucks make these last eight games meaningful? Well, when the team has accomplished so much it becomes about finishing off some great individual seasons. Even though basketball is a team sport, great individuals are needed to put it all together.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton were both All-Stars this year and both of them have even more that they want to get done before the end of the season. They have been the heart of this team all year long and finishing strong would be great for both of them.
We’re all patiently awaiting the playoffs when our beloved Milwaukee Bucks will make a run at the NBA championship and hopefully begin their dynasty, but before that they have to finish what has been a historic regular season. So here’s a few things to watch for when they close out the season.
