Playoff Hopes Dashed

The Milwaukee Bucks did their part on Monday night, but it wasn’t enough to keep playoff hopes alive for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and company.

The Bucks came from behind to defeat the Toronto Raptors 92-86 at the Bradley Center, but the Philadelphia 76ers pulled out a 105-87 win over the Nets in New Jersey to clinch the final playoff spot and crush Milwaukee’s hopes.

The two teams then met on Wednesday night in the Bucks’ home finale, but Philadelphia got the best of them again in a 90-85 win. Luc sat out both games with tendinitis in his right knee, but was on hand to thanks fans for their support this season.
