As we remain in a period of uncertainty in the sports world, we are beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel. While no hard and fast dates have been set for anything yet, the MLS has announced that they will be looking to return on May 10, while over in Europe, the EPL is looking at April 30. This could all change, but the hope is that we will start to hear from the other professional leagues as to when they may get back into the action. The NBA was edging very close to the playoffs, so we thought it might be fun to look at what each team has delivered this season as we look ahead to the return of basketball. Let’s get things rolling with the Milwaukee Bucks. Here’s an overview of the Milwaukee Bucks 2020 season so far with NBA Odds and NBA Championship Odds.
NBA Milwaukee Bucks 2020 Season Analysis
Milwaukee Bucks Season So Far
It has been a phenomenal season for the Bucks, as they headed into the suspension of play with the best record in the NBA. Overall, they are sitting at 53-12, while going on a 6-4 run in their last 10 games that was basically brought about by Giannis being forced to sit out through injury. The Bucks went an astonishing 28-3 in their own building and 25-9 on the road, while also picking up just 1 loss out of 14 games in divisional play. All of that leaves them 6 ½ games up on the Raptors in the battle for the Eastern Conference. If there is a positive to this current break, it is that it will give Giannis some time to get healthy for when play does eventually resume.
