The Milwaukee Bucks are getting back into the playoff race, thanks to Philadelphia. The 76’ers dropped to the eighth-and-final playoff position in the Eastern Conference last night, after losing at home to Indiana 102-to-97. Milwaukee is now just one-and-a-half games behind Philly with six games left – and they’ll play the Sixers at home next week. Philadelphia has lost three straight. New York, meanwhile, moved up to the Number-seven spot, two-and-a-half ahead of Milwaukee, with a 118-to-110 home victory over Boston. The Bucks have not played since Saturday night, when they lost to the Pacers. Milwaukee will play the Wizards in Washington tonight. The Bucks are 29-and-31, while the Wizards are languishing at 15-and-46.
