Dunleavy: Bucks on ‘the outside looking in’
In the midst of all the chaos, the Pacers prevailed, 118-109, to win their seventh straight game and nearly end to the Bucks’ playoff hopes.
Milwaukee (29-33) lost for the fifth time in its last six games to fall three games behind eighth-place Philadelphia (32-30) with four games to play in the chase for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
The 76ers’ magic number to clinch a berth dropped to two – any combination of Bucks losses and 76ers victories totaling two will eliminate Milwaukee.
“We’re on the outside looking in,” Dunleavy said. “We’ve got to do something extraordinary right now.”
