    If Celtics continue to play this good they may even catch Orlando for 3rd seed.

    Miami didnt show up to play in boston. I hate both teams but wanted Miami to win today and they didnt come to play. Now i hate them even more.
    But dont forget, that this is not how they will play come playoff time. I still think they are the team to beat in the east and predict Heat-OKC final.

    At least its just about impossible for us to play the celtics in the playoffs this year, so when we get swept this time it wont be by them.

    The Milwaukee Bucks are currently two and a half games behind the New York Knicks for the final spot in the Eastern Conference Playoffs, but Scott Skiles’ team may have an inside track to the postseason.

    The Knicks are looking at up to four weeks without Amar’e Stoudemire (bulging disc) and Jared Jeffries (knee) and up to six weeks without Jeremy Lin (torn meniscus in his left knee). But even more significant than that, the Bucks are confusing the heck out of opponents, one Western Conference source told HOOPSWORLD.

    “That will be an interesting team as an eighth seed since they added Monta Ellis,” the source said.

    The team is just 6-4 since they added Ellis and Ekpe Udoh from Golden State and both players have looked lost at times. Still, the offense they’re currently running is a big departure from Skiles’ usual program.

    They’re playing without any post player (“Drew Gooden is playing facing the basket, but that wouldn’t be the case normally”) and the pace has picked up considerably. That means less “programmed plays” and far less movement offensively, which has been replaced with more urgency.

    “The last coach to run this kind of a thing was Jim O’Brien in Indiana, but his was run more from the elbow,” the source said. “Skiles has taken it to a better level this time.

    “Give Skiles credit,” he continued. “He’s a set-play kind of guy and he moved to this style pretty seamlessly.”

    The player who may be benefitting the most is point guard Brandon Jennings, who averaged 20.5 points and 5.9 assists per game in March while shooting over 43% from the field (he’s a career 38.8% shooter, so yes, that’s an improvement). Furthermore, Jennings has turned the ball over only five times over his last three games, which is a sign he’s adjusting to the changes.

    What makes the Bucks particularly dangerous is the volume of good shooters they have on their rosters. Jennings, Ellis, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Delfino, Beno Udrih and even 6-10 bigs Ersan Ilyasova (“he’s played so well”) and Jon Leuer can shoot from the perimeter.

    Milwaukee also has a versatile roster featuring no less than 10 players that can serve in multiple positions. Shaun Livingston, for instance, has moonlighted at point guard, shooting guard and small forward.

    The only real concern for Milwaukee—and this was never a problem when Andrew Bogut was on the team and healthy—is defense. This is a team that gave up 99 points to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday after yielding 125 points to the Indiana Pacers one week earlier.

    “They’re not as good defensively,” the source said. “There’s more possessions per game, so they’re probably giving up more points. Skiles is a good defensive coach, but they don’t have the inside presence that they had in the past.

    “(Udoh) doesn’t have a crazy effect,” he continued. “I think he’s a good player who adds to their depth, but I don’t think he really changes them defensively.”

    You may believe that the Knicks are more talented than the Bucks, but you can’t argue with their respective schedules. While New York prepares to face the Indiana Pacers, Orlando Magic and Chicago Bulls this week, Milwaukee gets the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers and the league’s worst team, the Charlotte Bobcats.

    The Knicks are still in control of their own destiny for now, but the Bucks’ exotic new offense could be coming together at just the wrong time for New York fans.

    And? Recently we've show we're able to beat higher seeds on a regular basis, Indiana (twice), Philly, Orlando, so what's the big deal? Seriously folks, show some trust in this squad, because if you can count, count on yourself and don't look at what others are doing.

    Okay gentleman tonight is the nigth we can get 1.5 games within Philly. We play Indiana and Philly is in Miami. Miami looks hungry after thier recent terrible play and Granger might want some revenge after not holding his promise a couple weeks back.

    6ers got blown out by Toronto (and at home), 99:78 and they're 3-5 since this thread has been opened.

    edit: SAS with 1 point lead over BOS with 4:50 remaining...

    edit: MIL passing along CLE...

    edit: ATL getting an easy W over CHA.

    Hawks and Bucks win, Celtics and 76ers lose. The Pacers also won

    We're 2 behind Philly, 3.5 behind Boston, 4.5 behind the Hawks

    Games Left:

    Knicks-12
    Celtics-13
    76ers-12
    Hawks-11

    Looks like the Hawks are just about out of reach. If we cant catch the Celtpricks, It'd be in our best interest to keep 8th and play the Bulls instead of Heat. I think we match up better with Chicago, maybe we could even steal a game or two. I just dont wanna get swept again, my feelings are still hurt from last year

    I actually disagree with this.. i think we have a better chance facing the Heat, who have been very inconsistent lately..
    If we'll have STAT and Jeffries back by 1st round, with Melo continuing to play his game, then we should want to face the Heat, unless the Bulls are minus Rose.
