Betting on the 2023 Milwaukee Bucks
In early 2014 the Bucks stand an even 4 - 4 after 8 games. That places them 2 games back of arch rival Chicago in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee is getting it done at home with a 3 - 1 record. However, on the road they are just 1 - 3. But it might be too early to consider the Bucks as an average team. All they need to do is start scoring more points. The team is 8th in rebounds per game, 4th in points allowed, and 12th in assists.
That bodes well for the future. PG Brandon Knight is knocking down 17.4 points per contest, and also leading the team in assists at 6.9. The multitalented C Larry Sanders leads the team in rebounds (8.1), steals (1.6) and blocks (2.0). Since the Bucks are playing great defense (allowing just 92.6 points per game) and spreading the ball effectively, they just need to start converting at the offensive end and they could find themselves in the playoffs in 2015.
