Bucks VS Hawks Playoffs at Bradley Center

The Bucks VS Hawks playoffs at the Bradley Center played out to my liking. The good guys took both games away from the hapless Hawks. This is not unusual for Atlanta. They have won only one road playoff game in the past twelve tries.

The same could be said for regular season wins by the Hawks at the Bradley Center. They don't play well here in Milwaukee. As if on cue, the Bucks tied the series, and now get a home game six for sure. It looked as if the Hawks were hit by a car yesterday. Oh yea, they were! The team bus was T-boned by an errant driver, and this forced the Hawks players out onto the streets of Brew City.

What was the play of the day last night? There were six of them. Carlos Delfino hit three six-pointers, and some of those were quite timely shots. He ended the night with 22 points. Jennings bested that mark by one. Every time the Hawks tried to match Jennings up with Zaza Pachulia in the paint, Zaza was smoked. Pachulia had only two rebounds last night, because his man kept dropping the ball in the hoop. How do you rebound when you keep getting burned for a score?

Milwaukee heads to Atlanta for game five, and then it's back to the Bradley Center for game six. Will these past two games give the Bucks the spark to take one on the road? We hope so.

Milwaukee Bucks Lose First Two Playoff Games in Atlanta

The 2010 Milwaukee Bucks playoffs run has not quite turned out the way I had hoped. After suffering two losses in Atlanta, the Bucks are behind in the series 2 to 0. In the first game, the Milwaukee Bucks lost 102-92 and in the second game, the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Bucks, 96-86. What's going on guys? The offense needs to clean up its game if the Milwaukee Bucks want to advance to the next rounds of the playoffs. I like to think they can still succeed in the absence of Center Andrew Bogut.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this Saturday’s Milwaukee Bucks Playoff Game at the Bradley Center will have better results. Maybe the home court advantage will bring the Milwaukee Bucks a win. Or even the spirit of Squad Six! I read somewhere that the presence of Squad Six has made the Bradley Center a tough court for visiting teams to win on. Let's see if that's true this Saturday night when the Atlanta Hawks come to the Bradley Center! Go Bucks! Fear the Deer!

Milwaukee Bucks Will Face Atlanta Hawks in the Playoffs

It is official! Our Milwaukee Bucks will face the third seeded Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the playoffs. After finishing off their regular season by defeating the Boston Celtics in Boston, the Bucks head to Atlanta for their first two games which will be played this Saturday and Monday. Looking to catch our Milwaukee Bucks play in their first playoff games since the 2005-2006 season? Get your Milwaukee Bucks 2010 playoff tickets when they return to the Bradley Center Saturday, April 24th and Monday, April 26th. I think I'm going to go to all the playoff games at home. After winning a free t-shirt on fan appreciation night and securing a "fear the deer" shirt, I am feeling pretty spirited towards the Milwaukee Bucks. The only thing that could possibly top the excitement I'm feeling from the Milwaukee Bucks entering the playoffs would be a miraculous recovery of Andrew Bogut. Speaking of Bogut, apparently his cast has been removed. He even tweeted a picture.

Milwaukee Bucks Center Andrew Bogut Out For Remainder of Season

After falling in Saturday night's game against the Phoenix Suns following a dunk, Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut suffered a season ending injury after breaking his right hand, spraining his wrist, and dislocating his elbow. Bogut is scheduled to have surgery on his arm today. Meanwhile, the Bucks are continuing their quest to secure a playoff berth! If the Bucks beat the Chicago Bulls tomorrow night in Chicago, they will secure their spot in the playoffs.

I can't believe it. No more Andrew Bogut?!?! Say it ain't so! However, Andrew Bogut tweeted the other day, this is a team sport and the Milwaukee Bucks are playing at a high level. Kurt Thomas, Ersan Ilyasova, Carlos Delfino, and rookie Brandon Jennings will be key in the Bucks' playoffs run. I believe the Milwaukee Bucks will make it to the playoffs, even in Bogut's absence. They could probably use a little extra fan support, so I'm going to get Milwaukee Bucks tickets at the Bradley Center for the rest of season! Fear the deer!

Also, if you missed Saturday night's game, I don't suggest watching footage of Bogut's fall online. Seriously. Don't do it. It's almost too much to handle...
