Milwaukee returns to the friendly confines of the BMO Harris Bradley Center to take on the reeling Detroit Pistons. Detroit has lost eight of ten games, and the two victories include a one-point squeaker over the suddenly feisty Nets and tanking Suns.
On paper this has been a game Milwaukee should win given their recent track record, but I would’ve said the same thing last Sunday against Chicago.
In sad news, Charles Gardner is reporting that Malcolm Brogdon, Milwaukee hero and King for a Day after his theatrics in Boston, will miss tonight’s game with back tightness. Fans will recall that Brogdon missed two games earlier this March with back issues. Hopefully it won’t linger and Brogdon’s clutch renaissance will be fully available come playoff time.
Word from Bucks shootaround is Malcolm Brogdon is out tonight against Detroit due to back tightness.— cfgardner (@cf_gardner) March 31, 2017
In good news, Charles is also reporting that Micheal Beasley is available for the Bucks tonight. It’s his first appearance in 17 games, and seeing how Jason Kidd works him back into the rotation tonight will be fascinating, particularly given his 23-point outburst against Detroit the last time they played.
PF Michael Beasley will be available for Bucks tonight after missing 17 games with a hyperextended left knee.— cfgardner (@cf_gardner) March 31, 2017
