Bucks VS Celtics | Playoffs Almost A Reality

The Bucks face the Celtics in two of their last three regular season games. Will we see the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs? I think so. The Bucks have a comfortable cushion over the Bulls, and are holding steady against Miami. Yes, they lost two games at home, but bounced back nicely against the Grizzlies. It helps to see that the struggling Clippers are in town tonight.

John Salmons is like the last spice in the salad dressing. It's tasting pretty good right now, and the Bucks know it. He's leading the Bucks in scoring and getting major time on the court. The pressure is off Jennings. I'll admit that I was a bit skeptical when the Bucks picked up Salmons. Looking at his points per game while a Bull, and his time on the court at the United Center, I have to say this isn't just a guy who has brought up his scoring average just because he is on the court for an extra four minutes per night.

This season could go down to the wire. Milwaukee has four more home games, and five on the road. Twice they face Boston, and they have one game against the high flying Hawks. Atlanta has locked in their playoff spot, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't love to spoil our playoff party by putting us out of the running. The last three games are Bucks vs Celtics at the Bradley Center, Milwaukee vs Atlanta, and then one more Celtics match up on the road. Lose those three, and a few other games this week, and you never know what may happen.

Milwaukee Bucks Center Andrew Bogut Named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

For his stellar shooting and rebound averages for the past week, Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Bogut averaged 19.3 points per game and around 14 rebounds. Now that's what I'm talking about! It seems like Andrew Bogut has finally come into his own.

Things are looking pretty good for our Milwaukee Bucks right now. They've surpassed everyone's expectations and have already won two more games than they did at the end of last year. The Bucks players and coaches are keeping a pretty cool head about the whole thing, recognizing that they have to keep up a strong fight to make it to the playoffs, but you know what?! I'm going to relish in their triumphs for a quick minute!

I'm so excited for the Milwaukee Bucks that I'm practically foaming at the mouth. Now, not to jump the gun here, but the Bucks HAVE THE SECOND BEST OVERALL RECORD (behind the Dallas) in the league following the all-star break!!!! ESPN has ranked them 8th overall in their power rankings. THEY HAVE WON 12 of their last 13 games! If they playoffs started tomorrow, the Bucks would be seeded FIFTH! The Milwaukee Bucks knew the playoffs were in reach if they stepped it up after the all-star break and that is exactly what they did; they stepped it up. Even better, the Milwaukee Bucks are boasting a new rally cry: FEAR THE DEER!!!!!! Not only is this phrase plastered across a downtown Milwaukee billboard, it's also a hashtag on Twitter.

I can't wait to see what the rest of March and April have in store for our Milwaukee Bucks. In fact, I'm getting Milwaukee Bucks tickets at the Bradley Center for the remainder of the season. Fear the deer!

Milwaukee Bucks Defeat Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics

Things are looking good for our Milwaukee Bucks. They have won 10 of their last 11 games and they have defeated two major contenders in recent NBA Championships history, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. Sitting on a number 5 seed in the Eastern Conference, our Bucks appear to be play-offs bound.

In the most recent match-up against the Boston Celtics, Andrew Bogut's performance proved that Bogut is worth all the hype. This is the Andrew Bogut we acquired in the 2005 Draft. Tuesday night against the Celtics at the Bradley Center, Bogut scored 28 points and made 17 rebounds (give or take a little; my mind was a bit clouded from Club Cambria's hospitality). Even my mom commented on the fact that Bogut is on fire, and she is not really a basketball fan. When my mom starts chiming in on basketball, the Bucks must be playing extremely well.

As Bogut stated the other day, now is a pretty good time to jump on the Bucks bandwagon. The Milwaukee Bucks deserve and need the support of local fans! I think the Bucks' success is one of the best things to happen to this city! We love our Packers, our Brewers, and now it's time to embrace our Bucks! Speaking of Bucks, I have to go pick up my Milwaukee Bucks tickets for tonight's game at the Bradley Center against the Utah Jazz.

Milwaukee Bucks Coach Skiles Named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month

The Milwaukee Bucks have certainly heeded the call and have much to be excited about as they embark upon the month of March. For their success in February, Bucks Coach Scott Skiles earned the title of Eastern Conference Coach of the Month!

During the month of February, the Bucks won 10 games, more than any other team in the Eastern Conference. In addition, the team won six games in a row and also six consecutive games on the road. Currently, the Bucks are ranked sixth in the Eastern conference, with a tied record with the Chicago Bulls. However, the Bucks have the tiebreaker.

Last night, the Bucks defeated the Washington Wizards 100-87 at the Bradley Center. Since January, the Bucks are 10-2 at their home court. Up next, the Bucks will have a rematch against the Washington Wizards in Washington DC before returning home to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

What will March have in store for our Milwaukee Bucks? Can they maintain their winning streak at the Bradley center? How many more games will they win in a row? Can they move up in the ranks. Better get your Milwaukee Bucks tickets and find out for yourself!
