With 13 games left in the NBA season, playoff races and end-of-year scenarios are starting to play out for teams across the league. After Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks, the Bucks sit at 34-35, squarely in 8th place in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. At this time, it’s a nearly foregone conclusion that they will make the playoffs given a seven-game lead over ninth-place Philadelphia. The real question is whether the Bucks can make up a two-game deficit on seventh-seeded Boston and avoid a killer match-up with the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs.
