Bucks begin postseason

The Milwaukee Bucks begin their playoff push Tuesday afternoon with the day’s first game from Walt Disney World. They have a best-of-seven series against the hometown Orlando Magic in the opening round, a team they beat four times in the regular season. As of Tuesday morning, the Bucks are 11-point favorites for game one. Both sides have been less than stellar since the restart, going 3-5 in the regular season portion of the Disney schedule. The first day of postseason play featured four games with the favorite winning every one, so that may not be a useful metric when trying to make prognostications about the playoffs.

Orlando is nursing severe injury problems with four players confirmed as being out. Forward Aaron Gordon is a game-time decision. It is hard to imagine that the Magic can hang with Milwaukee while short-handed.
