Bucks keep heads pointed towards playoffs

(Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks are caught in a two-game slide and
their postseason status is dwindling as time goes by.

Milwaukee is in the midst of a three-game road trip and will try to right the
ship Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

But on Wednesday in Orlando, Bucks young guard T.J. Ford scored a career-high
34 points and added 11 assists in a 108-105 loss to the Magic. The Bucks
battled back from deficits of 20 points in the third quarter and 14 in the
fourth quarter to take a short-lived lead in the final minutes.

Milwaukee, which lost the opener of the trip to the Miami Heat, has lost three
of its last four games.

Milwaukee is not making life easy and only leads the Indiana Pacers by just a
half game for the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

The Bucks will conclude a three-game road trip in Memphis and have lost their
last five games away from the Bradley Center. They are 14-24 on the road this
season.

The upcoming schedule is not an easy one for the Bucks with New Jersey,
Washington and Detroit on the list.
