MMPG: Team of the Weak
It was bound to happen. The Milwaukee Bucks were playing above their heads without Michael Redd and Andrew Bogut, keeping their playoff hopes together with duct tape. But last week, the Bucks' lack of depth and talent eventually caught up with them, as they lost three road games in Toronto, Orlando and Miami, extending their losing streak to five. They have also lost seven road games in row, failing to win away from Milwaukee since Feb. 17 in Detroit.
The Bucks have made meek finishes the norm in recent seasons. They lost their final eight games last season under Scott Skiles, and the year before, Milwaukee lost 13 of its final 16 games. Those teams were bad. This team held the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference late in February, but the Bucks are just 4-14 since the all-star break and no longer competing for anything -- other than a lottery pick.
