The victory for the Bucks over the Spurs is there second win in a row and has now moved them into the 7th seed. They now also find themselves one game behind the Wizards for the 6th spot. I personally don’t mind finishing 7th and facing the Celtics in the first round vs finishing 6th and drawing the surging Cavs and LeBron James.
Giannis Returns From Ankle Injury
In The Greek Freaks first game back from the ankle injury that costed him a little time he leads his team over the Spurs. The Milwaukee crowd was happy to see a Bucks victory on a Sunday afternoon at the BMO Bradley Center. Giannis returned in form scoring 25 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe added 23 points and Kris Middleton has 19 to help defeat the Spurs.
New additions Shabazz Muhammad and Brandon Jennings again provided a much needed spark and energy. The two seam to help fire the team up and bring a little life to the team that was missing.
Let’s hope the Bucks are finding a late season groove with this win over the Spurs. With only 9 games left on the regular season schedule. The Bucks still await the return of last years rookie of the year and starting shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon. If he can return and pop back into his place with the team right away the Bucks might be gearing up to be an extremely difficult out in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.
The Bucks now head to L.A. to face the Clippers again on Tuesday. Hopefully they can redeem themselves for what happened on Wednesday in Milwaukee.
