With 15 games left in this lockout damaged condensed season, Milwaukee has a 24-27 record. Normally, a marginal, possible playoff team with a near .500 record struggles severely on the road and takes advantage of their home games. The year Don Nelson took over for Larry Costello, 1976-77, is a great example and they were not even close to being a playoff team. They finished 30-52 with a 24-17 home record which means they were 6-35 away from home. So far this season, they are 12-16 on the road, which isn't great, but very respectable for a team of their caliber and suggests that they should have a winning season. But their 12-11 home record is what is going to keep them from making the playoffs or having a higher seed if they manage to squeak in. Tonight they play Memphis at BC and this is a great opportunity for them to reverse this trend. Memphis is a slightly better, close to equal match that should result in a win. But unless the trend is reversed, this game has loss written all over it.
