Bucks Beat Hornets, Clinch At Least Sixth Playoff Seed

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  It appears that the Milwaukee Bucks will play Toronto in the first round of the N-B-A Playoffs. The Bucks clinched at least the Number six playoff seeed in the East with an 89-79 home win against Charlotte on Monday night. Milwaukee could still move up to the fifth spot — but Atlanta, which is now in fifth, would have to lose its final two regular season games while the Bucks win their only remaining contest tomorrow (Wednesday) night at Boston. Giannis Antetokounmpo had his third triple double of the season Monday night with ten points, eleven rebounds, and ten assists while Jason Terry added five early three pointers and Greg Monroe scored eleven of his 16 points in the fourth quarter — when the Bucks outscored Charlotte 28-13 to win their 42nd game and assure themselves of a winning record this season. Michael Kidd Gilchrist led the Hornets with 13 points, while former Badger Frank Kamsinsky was held to three points and five assists in 21 minutes.
