The Milwaukee Bucks can clinch a playoff spot tonight (Thursday) with a victory at Indiana. But if the Bucks lose, they would get closer to being booted out of contention. That’s because five teams are only two games apart as they scramble for the final four Eastern Conference playoff slots with the regular season winding down. Milwaukee still holds the Number five slot by one-half game above Atlanta as Chicago, Miami, and Indiana are all tied for the final two playoff slots two games behind the Bucks with Indiana ninth due to its tiebreakers. To get some inspiration, coach Jason Kidd had the Bucks practice Wednesday at Hinkle Fieldhouse, where Milan’s state high school championship in 1954 was immortalized in the movie “Hoosiers.”
