Unfortunately, the extra night off in Atlanta didn’t help the Bucks in any shape or form, dropping games to both the Spurs and the Sixers last week. Five of the last six games have been losses for this Milwaukee Buck team that, despite their injury woes, are doing themselves no favors. But when the season isn’t going so well, you look for something to be positive about. Read more below and see if you can’t crack a smile.

John Hollinger’s rating system has the Bucks at 16th best in the NBA.
Marc Stein at ESPN.com dropped the Bucks four spots, good for 19th in the NBA. Stein, however, still believes in the deer, stating, “The combo of an easier schedule and health that has to get better is why you keep hearing know-it-alls like me say they have a second-half run in them.”
