Milwaukee Bucks 2015-2016 News and Updates
8/12/15 - The Milwaukee Bucks are gearing up for a fresh new start. The NBA just published the official schedule for the 2015-2016 season, and the Bucks are ten short weeks away from their home opener game. After finishing with a mediocre 41-41 record and ending up in third place in the Central Division, the Bucks will be looking for a lively start to the new season. They will face the New York Knicks at home in the kickoff game on Wednesday, October 28 at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Next, they will take on the Washington Wizards before hitting the road to play the Toronto Raptors. Don’t miss all the kickoff action on October 28. Tickets are currently available in varying prices and start at just $35.
5/1/15 - The playoffs are officially over for the Milwaukee Bucks, but they certainly put up a fight before being eliminated. They got out to a rough start when they took on the Chicago Bulls, who are seed number three. The Bucks lost their first three matches, which meant the Bulls were only one win away from taking their spot in the second round. Knowing this was their last chance, Milwaukee dug in their heels and fought hard. They managed to beat out the Bulls and even followed it up with a second win on the Bulls' home court. To avoid elimination, the Bucks would need to win four consecutive games, and it looked like they just might do it, but they just could not get control of April 30th's game, and they lost 120-66.
4/20/15 - After dropping the opening two games of their first round playoff series versus the Bulls, the Milwaukee Bucks are hoping a little home cooking will cure what ails them. Jimmy Butler proved unstoppable for the second straight game, accounting for over a third of Chicago’s points en route to a 91-82 win in Game Two on Monday night. Bucks shooting guard Khris Middleton did his best to play the equalizer, scoring 22 points and grabbing six rebounds in his 34 minutes of action. It wasn’t enough to overcome sluggish scoring in the first and fourth quarters, however, as Milwaukee ultimately fell by nine. The series turns to BMO Harris Bradley Center in Wisconsin on Thursday night as the Bucks look to climb back into the series. Tickets are on sale now!
4/13/15 - After missing the cut last year, the Milwaukee Bucks are returning to the postseason in Jason Kidd’s first year as head coach. They will look to win their first playoff series since the 2000-01 season, when a Bucks team led by Ray Allen and Sam Cassell was bested by Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Milwaukee will begin this year’s playoff run on the road, as they will face either the Chicago Bulls or Toronto Raptors in the first round depending on the outcomes of the regular season’s final contests. We have playoff tickets on sale now! The postseason begins on April 18th, but it’s not too early to secure your seats for home games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center!

3/25/15 - With each passing day, the Milwaukee bucks edge closer and closer to the NBA postseason – quite an achievement after finishing as one of the league’s worst teams last season.

However, the Grizzlies came back strong in the second and third quarters, securing their victory. The Bucks have two back-to-back games next on their schedule, starting with the Pelicans on March 17, followed by a return home to face the Spurs on the 18th.

Tickets remain on sale, starting at $4 for the Pelicans and $5 for the Spurs game.
3/11/15 - It’s gotten a little tougher for the Milwaukee Bucks of late.

3/4/15 - Even though the Milwaukee Bucks have lost their last three in a row, the team is still fairly comfortably in the playoff hunt; while they are 16 games behind conference leading Atlanta (who have clinched their spot in the postseason), they’re 5 ½ games ahead of seventh-place Miami.
2/25/15 - The NBA Central Division is getting bunched up at the top, and one of those teams is the Milwaukee Bucks.

2/19/15 - With the trade deadline on Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks were wheelin’ and dealin’, picking up three players as part of a three team deal with Phoenix and Philadelphia.

1/21/15 - As division rival Cleveland seeks to get their act together, the Milwaukee Bucks are in a position battle with the Cavs. The Bucks are currently in third place in the Central Division, a half game back of the resurgent Cavs, but 5 ½ games ahead of fourth place Detroit.

12/17/14 - The Milwaukee Bucks took a big blow en route to a 96-94 buzzer-beating win over Phoenix on Monday night. Rookie Jabari Parker suffered what turned out to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the game, and will miss the remainder of the season.
12/10/14 - After spending much of the young season at or near the top of the Central Division, the Milwaukee Bucks have fallen back in the pack. Now in third place behind Cleveland and Chicago, the Bucks are also now one game under .500, at 11 wins and 12 losses on the season.
12/3/14 - Has the change in ownership been the catalyst for a resurgence in the Milwaukee Bucks this season? After previous owner Herb Kohl sold last year’s cellar dwellers, this year’s squad is one of just two in the Central Division with 10 or more wins at this juncture.
11/19/14 - If the season finished today, the Milwaukee Bucks would be the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference…but there’s still 71 games to play. However, it’s a far cry from last season, when the Bucks struggled their way to a last-place finish in the Central Division.
11/12/14 - Last season, the Milwaukee bucks were one of the cellar-dwellers of the NBA. This year, at least for starters, it’s been a different story for the Bucks, who are at .500 (along with Cleveland), just two games behind division leading Chicago.
10/29/14 - Coming off of a 108-97 loss against the Washington Wizards on Saturday, Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd feels the team needs to believe it deserves to win in order to improve. The Bucks played with energy and gave great effort, but at the end of the night came up short. Brandon Knight was the team’s leading scorer on Saturday with 24 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists.
The loss comes as rumors surfaced recently that Milwaukee Bucks owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry have been negotiating to purchase a parcel of land known as Journal Square, which includes the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel buildings. Located across the street from UWM Panther Arena, and adjacent to the failing Milwaukee Theater, it remains uncertain whether the nearby buildings would be razed and included as part of a new sports complex.
The Bucks’ next home game comes on Wednesday, November 5th against the Chicago Bulls. Tickets are still available for purchase, beginning at $38 each.
8/26/14 – The Milwaukee Bucks 2014-2015 schedule released and there are tons of can’t-miss matchups on the 82-game slate. The Bucks have sped up their rebuilding process with the growth of Antetokounmpo and addition of Jabari Parker, the NBA-ready No.2 pick who is in talks for Rookie of the Year. Milwaukee opens up regular season play on the road at the Charlotte Hornets (Oct. 29), while the Philadelphia 76ers visit BMO Harris Bradley Center for the home opener on Oct. 31. Fans don't have to wait very long to see superstar NBA talent, when Kevin Durant and the Thunder visit on Nov. 11, followed by Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks on Nov. 18. See your new coach Jason Kidd on the sideline, and your fresh young core on the boards, with Milwaukee Bucks tickets today!
Last season, the Milwaukee Bucks made valiant efforts to gain ground in the East, with the addition of O.J. Mayo, Zaza Pachulia and Larry Sanders. Unfortunately, these offseason efforts saw no gain in the regular season and the Bucks were a bottom barrel team, despite being the No.8 seed just a year before. Notwithstanding play from Greek phenom Giannis Antetokounmpo, who displayed his raw athleticism and great promise with time, the team lacked leadership and blue-chip quality players to take their play to the next level. Look out Bucks fans, because after a successful offseason, Milwaukee is certainly on the rise.
Milwaukee is in a rebuilding year, and made major moves to ensure positive progress towards NBA postseason relevance, starting with the 2014 Draft. The lottery landed the Bucks with the No. 2 pick, which they briskly used on Jabari Parker, the guy they wanted from the outset, in addition to Damien Inglis and Johnny O’Bryant. Now under new ownership, the franchise hired Jason Kidd as new head coach, who will build the team around Antetokounmpo and Parker. See if the new faces of the franchise can propel them back into playoff contention with Milwaukee Bucks tickets today!
4/18/14 - The best news the Milwaukee Bucks got all week was the announcement that the team’s owner, former U.S. senator Herb Kohl, had sold his majority stake in the team for some $550 million to a pair of investors who agreed to keep the team in Milwaukee, according to reports from ESPN and SB Nation. The Bucks finished the season at 15-67, the worst record in the league, including losses in their last three games. The shorthanded Bucks fell 111-103 to Atlanta in their last game; though Brandon Knight had a solid performance of 31 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Backup center John Henson added 19 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and a pair of blocks, and Khris Middleton contributed 16 points and seven boards. Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded 10 points, five rebounds, three assists, and a blocked shot.
4/14/14 - The Milwaukee Bucks pit a scare into them, but in the end, the Bucks’ starters were unable to overcome Indiana’s backups, falling 104-102 to the Pacers in Milwaukee on April 9. While the Pacers did not play any of their starters, the Bucks were shorthanded as well, playing just three subs the whole game, and all five starters accumulating at least 33 minutes on the court. Brandon Knight was the top scorer for the Bucks with 25 points, while also dishing out 10 assists; Ramon Sessions joined Knight with 20 points, while Jeff Adrien combined 13 points and 17 rebounds into a double-double on the night.
4/7/14 - After upsetting the Los Angeles Lakers last week, the Milwaukee Bucks returned to form, dropping three straight to remain two games behind Philadelphia for the worst record in the NBA. Even a top team (Miami) on an otherwise off night, still managed to take care of business, defeating the visiting Bucks in their last game 96-77. The Bucks had just one player with over 15 points, that being Ramon Sessions, who had 19 points; Jeff Adrien scored 14, Brandon Knight added 11, and John Henson contributed 10 off the bench. Zaza Pachulia had a good night under the boards, collecting 10 defensive rebounds and six more on offense to give hin 16 on the night.
3/28/14 - With apologies to ESPN.com’s college-football “Pillow Fight of the Week,” the last place in the East Milwaukee Bucks gained a game on record-tying Philadelphia by defeating the next to last place in the West Los Angeles Lakers, 108-105, on March 27. The Bucks got a game high 30 points from Brandon Knight, along with 22 points and a team high five assists from Ramon Sessions in the win. Jeff Adrien had nine rebounds and a pair of blocks, while reserve forward Ekpe Udoh blocked three shots. As a team, the Bucks outshot the Lakers as well, making almost 56% of their shots from the field and converting 24 of 34 from the free throw line.
3/21/14 - Of the nine players who saw the floor for the Milwaukee Bucks on March 20, seven of them – including all four reserves – garnered double digits in scoring. But it wasn’t enough, as the balance was unable to keep up with Golden State’s stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and David Lee in a 115-110 loss. The Bucks are on a six game losing streak, third longest as of this writing behind Philadelphia’s epic 22 game string, and Orlando’s seven straight drops. The Bucks remain 2 ½ games in arrears of Philadelphia with the NBA’s worst record, 13 wins against 56 losses. Guard Brandon Knight had 27 points in the loss to Golden State to lead the Bucks’ scoring attack.
3/14/14 - Despite a double-double from Ersan Ilyasova (22 points, 10 rebounds) and only giving up eight turnovers as a team to their opponent’s 17 giveaways, the Milwaukee Bucks failed to hold a lead for the second game in a row, falling 102-97 to Atlanta at Philips Arena. Brandon Knight was the only other Milwaukee starter to break double figures in scoring, tallying 20 points on the night; Jeff Adler and John Henson each chipped in 12 points in reserve efforts for the Bucks. Two days before, it was the Minnesota Timberwolves who used a late surge to slip past the Bucks, 112-101.
3/10/14 - Even though everyone on the Milwaukee Bucks bench played against Sacramento, that doesn’t mean the Bucks were victorious, as the Kings prevailed 116-102 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Just three Bucks players scored in double figures: starters Brandon Knight (25) and Khris Middleton (11); and Jeff Adrien (15 off the bench). Reserve center John Henson led the Bucks in rebounding with seven boards. Off the court, reports have surfaced that Kareem Abdul Jabbar would be interested in a front office role with the Bucks, the team who drafted him #1 overall in 1969.
3/3/14 - It was closer than one should expect, but it was still a loss for the Milwaukee Bucks, who dropped another close one to conference leading Indiana, 101-96, on February 27. It was the second time in five days that the front running Pacers and cellar dwelling Bucks had faced off, with Milwaukee losing both contests by a total of 15 points. Off the court, the Bucks finalized a contract buyout with veteran Caron Butler on February 27. League sources reportedly told Yahoo Sports that contenders Oklahoma City were the leading destination for Butler.
2/21/14 - The Milwaukee Bucks were the last NBA team to break the 10-win mark this season, earning their 10th win of the season over Orlando in their first contest after the All Star break. However, the Bucks returned to their bottom dwelling form a couple nights later in a 101-90 loss to the Denver Nuggets. The Bucks made minor news at the trading deadline on February 20, sending unhappy guard Gary Neal along with fellow guard Luke Ridnour to the playoff contending Charlotte Bobcats, and receiving Jeff Sdrien and Ramon Sessions in exchange.
2/11/14 - With just nine wins in 51 games, the Milwaukee Bucks remain the lone NBA team that has not hit double figures in wins. But that doesn't mean that there have been no trade rumors involving the Bucks, and specifically big man Larry Sanders. The Bucks' big man, second on the team in rebounding and blocked shots, is currently out indefinitely with a fractured orbital bone near his eye. The injury occurred during the Bucks game with Houston, coming from an accidental elbow by the Rockets' James Harden. A number of other players for Milwaukee are out with injuries as well.
2/4/14 - With just nine wins all season, the Milwaukee Bucks are by far the worst team in the NBA; yet, the Bucks recently snapped a six game losing streak with a last second 101-98 win over the New York Knicks. The game-winning three pointer was made with just 1.4 seconds left on the clock by point guard Brandon Knight, who led the way for Milwaukee with 25 points and seven assists. Knight, a Kentucky Wildcat product, is also the Bucks leading scorer, averaging 16.3 points per game.
The Milwaukee Bucks are looking to rebuild and will do so under former Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew. The Bucks selected Giannis Antetokoumpo of Greece in the NBA Draft and also picked up Nate Wolters. This offseason the Milwaukee Bucks roster has seen many changes – O.J. Mayo, Zaza Pachulia, Carlos Delfino, Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton, and Viacheslav Kravtsov are all additions. The latter three were bundled in a trade with the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Brandon Jennings. Larry Sanders whom many see as the face of the franchise was recently rewarded with a contract extension.
The most expensive game on the Bucks schedule this season is against the Brooklyn Nets in the beginning of March averaging $195. Surprisingly, Milwaukee Bucks vs. Detroit Pistons tickets are two of the cheapest games at Bradley Center, averaging $53 (1/7) and $48 (12/4). Milwaukee will play Miami who they matched up against in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at the end of March; Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat tickets are averaging $169 and are just 16th most expensive on the Milwaukee Bucks calendar.
3/8/13 - Currently sitting in eighth in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks are making a run at the NBA Playoffs. Milwaukee experienced a culture change when the organization parted ways with their head coach Scott Skiles in January. Since then, the Bucks roster has really stepped up — Monta Ellis was recently named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, Larry Sanders is averaging more blocks per minute than any other player in the NBA, and since Milwaukee acquired J.J. Redick, they have won four of five games. In addition, Ersan Ilyasova says the team's new direction has made him feel more confident and his game has improved of late. It may be time for the Toronto Raptors,
Philadlphia 76ers, and Detroit Pistons to "Fear the Deer" because they'll likely be ousted by the Bucks for a trip to the NBA Playoffs.
