The Bucks picked a really bad time to start struggling. They're fighting for the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference and they lost three important games at home last week. If they have any chance of making it, they'll basically have to win the rest of their games and have the Knicks lose a handful of them. Impossible? No. Likely? Eh, not really. But, the Bucks are young. So, even if they come up short, they need to use the situation they're in now as a learning experience so that it doesn't happen again next year. —Chris Yuscavage
