Bucks Lead

Bucks Finish Road Trip Strong

on

Milwaukee Soars In 113-94 Victory

The Milwaukee Bucks headed into New York with the best record in the league, ultimately picking up their 39th win on the season. Competing against the surprise that is the Brooklyn Nets, it didn’t matter, Milwaukee came to compete and they conquered. Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, continuing the Greek Freak’s MVP campaign. The NBA is starting to learn that to #FearTheDeer isn’t just a catchy slogan, but a downright fact.

Bledsoe Makes His Case

All-Star snub Eric Bledsoe came into Brooklyn with something to prove. Nets guard D’Angelo Russell was selected as Victor Oladipo’s replacement for the game, but Bledsoe balled out against the rising guard, showing why he should have been up for consideration. Finishing with 15 points, three rebounds, five assists and five steals, it’s understandable why the league should have taken another look at the point guard who has been playing his best basketball yet. Russell has been stellar and is due plenty of credit, but fans of the Bucks know that Bledsoe is due so much more.

 

 

Resilience Is Key

After a tough loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday afternoon, the Bucks finished the roadstand with four straight wins. The energy it takes to win on these road trips — especially against an Eastern Conference rival in the Toronto Raptors — is what needs to be appreciated about this team. Scratching and clawing through these games with four victories shows this team is capable of greatness.

Moving forward, the Bucks head back home to compete against the Washington Wizards once again. The All-Star break is soon approaching and a break is well-needed, but there is no hotter team in the NBA than the Bucks. This final stretch before the break will show what the Bucks are really made of. If this team has shown us anything so far, though, it’s that playing well into May and potentially June isn’t out of the question. It has been fun so far, but there is plenty of basketball left to be played. It has been a long time since this feeling has taken over for fans, but it seems that the city of Milwaukee has nothing to worry about as long as they keep playing like this.
