The Milwaukee Bucks clinched a .500 season with a 124-122 overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night. Eric Bledsoe led the way with a game-high 39 points, with a 15-24 shooting performance. Khris Middleton added 28 points, and Giannis Antetokounmpo chipping in 27 in the win. The Bucks moved into a tie with Miami for the 7 seed and only trail Washington by half a game for the 6 seed. ESPN gives the Bucks a 99.4% chance to make the playoffs, with the Detroit Pistons as the only team outside the playoffs not officially eliminated. The Bucks are back in action on Sunday traveling to Denver to play the Nuggets.
