MILWAUKEE — For the first time since Andrew Bogut’s gruesome injury year, Jerry Stackhouse’s stabilizing campaign, and John Salmons’ motivated contract surge, the Bucks are going to the NBA playoffs. They pounded Toronto Saturday night, 100-83 at home, while Philadelphia was losing. Those developments lock Milwaukee into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference playoffs. At this point, the eighth seeded Bucks will face off with top seed Miami in the first round.
In the win over the Raptors, Monta Ellis finished with 22 points and 9 assists, while Larry Sanders added 12 points and 6 blocked shots.
The Bucks play four games this week, all on the road. Before the trip, Sanders will be an in-studio guest on the FOX SIX Sports Blitz Sunday night at 10:35.
