Bucks staring into the abyss
After Friday night's 100-90 loss to the Grizzlies in Memphis, the Bucks have dropped three in a row and 6 of their last 10. The only reason they are still in the playoff hunt is because the East blows chow. That's the only reason. Even with that, the Bucks don't deserve to make it.
They are the only team in either conference who holds a play-off spot and yet has a negative PF vs. PA number. In the calendar year 2006, the Bucks are now 3-15 against teams who currently hold a winning record. I am really out of things to say. All I can think of is that line from Lou Mannheim at the end of the movie Wall Street:
"Man looks in the abyss, there's nothing staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character. And that is what keeps him out of the abyss."
Clearly, the Bucks are staring into the abyss. The question is, do they have what it takes to keep from falling in?
