After their breakout playoff season in 2010, the Milwaukee Bucks find themselves back in lottery land. It’s extremely disappointing; especially given that the ’09-’10 team had a young core that looked poised to make the franchise a fixture in the postseason. This year, they were alive for the final playoff spot up until a few days ago, but alas they’ll have to settle for ninth in the Eastern Conference.
They lost at home to the team directly ahead of them, the Philadelphia 76ers, who currently possess the final playoff spot. Still the Bucks finish the year 17-16, above .500 for the fourth consecutive year. In their 44 years of existence, the Bucks have had a winning record at home 37 times.
Since these final games in the lockout shortened 66 game season don’t mean much to the Bucks, it’s a chance for the young players to get playing time, grow and develop- like Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer.
“We’ve seen them in practice, we’ve seen them in all year. Obviously, in the last two games,...

ST. FRANCIS, Wisc. Just 12 hours or so after the Milwaukee Bucks' season had ended -- one coaches and players alike described most often with one word: "disappointing" -- Bucks coach Scott Skiles stood on the court of the team's practice facility, responding to questions about what to expect of his team next season and whether he'd even be there to see it....
MILWAUKEE -- Ersan Ilyasova has statistically improved in nearly every area of his game this season. And soon, the 24-year-old Turkish-born forward for the Milwaukee Bucks may have the hardware to prove just how much better he has become.
Though the Bucks find themselves out of the playoffs for the second consecutive year, Ilyasova's performance this season has him atop the...
It wasn't quite a run-of-the-mill rookie season for Milwaukee Bucks' rookies Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer.
With the summer's NBA Lockout shortening the regular season in 2012 from 82 games to 66 games, not to mention cutting valuable practice time in the offseason, the league's rookies may have been the ones who suffered most, forcing their transition to the NBA to...
For the moment, Scott Skiles remains the Milwaukee Bucks' head coach.
Speaking to reporters at the Bucks' training facility Friday morning, Skiles said he will meet soon with Sen. Herb Kohl, the team's owner, to discuss a disappointing end to what had been a promising season after a blockbuster trade. Beyond that, Skiles wouldn't speculate on his future in Milwaukee...
This could have been a crucial game in determining which team would earn the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Instead, the Philadelphia 76ers are preparing for their second consecutive postseason while the Milwaukee Bucks are getting ready for another long summer going into their matchup Wednesday night.
Philadelphia (34-30) had a three-game lead over the Bucks (31...
MILWAUKEE -- What only a week ago was supposed to be a critical game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night was instead a rather meaningless one. With the 76ers having already nudged out the Bucks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, neither team had much at stake in the Bradley Center. But despite using patched-up...

With Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand and Lou Williams held out for the game you would think that the Sixers would have a difficult time finding a way to score in tonight’s contest against the Milwaukee Bucks. That was not the case as the Sixers went on to defeat the Bucks 90-85. Philadelphia’s Evan Turner filled [...]
