Despite being four games under .500, Milwaukee sits just 1.5 games out of the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. That should be good news, right? Except, it's not. They're only 1.5 games back, but they're 1.5 games behind the suddenly red-hot Knicks who appear ready to pull away from the Bucks in the playoff picture. So, if they want to avoid getting another lottery pick this summer, they need to pick up their game and start keeping pace with the Knicks. And, there's no better way to do that than to beat them when the two teams play on Monday night.—Chris Yuscavage
