They’ll open their postseason this Sunday in Miami and they’ll probably end their postseason next Sunday in Milwaukee. Hopefully this series with the Heat is more entertaining than embarrassing and hopefully these are the [...]

Seventh [...]

ShareI was legitimately optimistic about the Milwaukee Bucks at the beginning of the week. I felt this way partially because of their impressive west coast trip and partially because I was forcing myself to. But that doesn’t matter. I was optimistic and it was nice.
