>>Bucks Beat Detroit, Gain Ground In Playoff Hunt

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks have gained ground in the N-B-A playoff hunt after a 102-89 home victory against Detroit on Monday night. The Bucks moved into sole possession of ninth place in the Eastern Conference, one game behind the Pistons for the eighth and final postseason slot with 28 games left. Former Piston Greg Monroe had a big night with 25 points and 13 rebounds, and Michael Beasley added 23 points as All Star Giannis Antetokounmpo was limited to just eight points — his lowest scoring of the season when playing at least ten minutes. Milwaukee led by 17 at the half in winning its first back to back games in the last month, with only a road contest at Brooklyn tomorrow (Wednesday) night before the All Star break. Marcus Morris scored 26 for Detroit, and former Buck and Wisconsin Badger Jon Leuer had 15 points and eleven rebounds.

The Brewers’ first full team workout comes on Saturday — and then they’ll have six days to get ready for their first games. The Brewers will open their exhibition schedule one week from Friday against U-W Milwaukee, with Cactus League play to begin on Saturday February 25th against the Angels of Anaheim. Brewers’ general manager David Stearns begins his second full season of the team’s rebuilding process, stocking up on prospects with the goal of having the best gel into a winner — while having a competitive team on the field for fans to enjoy this season.
