These are frustrating times for the Milwaukee Bucks, who have had ample opportunities to sneak into the playoffs, but wasted them all. Milwaukee lost to insanely-hot Indiana Thursday, and near the end of the game, Larry Sanders of the Bucks got in a fracas with … the five Indiana Pacers who were on the floor. Sanders’ teammates did a poor job of holding him back, and after Sanders gets heated because Danny Granger pokes/slaps him, a fight nearly happens. (Note Granger talking tough while standing with his teammates. Someone might call him a studio gangster.) With the loss, the Bucks fall three games back of Philadelphia in the race for the 8th spot. It’s not happening.
Indiana has won 11 of 12.
