For the second time in three years, the Milwaukee Bucks are going to the NBA Playoffs. Snapping a three game skid, the Bucks’ 90-82 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers and a loss by the Chicago Bulls to the Brooklyn Nets clinched the postseason appearance. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for the Bucks coming up just four assists shy of a triple-double (20 pts, 10 rebounds, 6 assists) while Greg Monroe pitched in with 17 points and 5 rebounds. The Bucks were 22-30 just a few months ago with a second straight postseason on the sidelines a possibility. Instead, the Bucks will play out the season with an opportunity to climb as high as the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference.
