Last night’s victory for the Milwaukee Bucks was a big one in cementing their status as a playoff team in the East. By knocking of the Toronto Raptors, the Bucks now have a 7 and a half game lead over them for the 8th seed. With just 22 games left, the Raptors are essentially eliminated from the playoff race.
Helping Milwaukee pick up the 122-114 overtime victory was the solid play of Monta Ellis and LARRY SANDERS! Ellis finished with 23 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. His best assist of the night came on a sweet, behind-the-head pass to SANDERS! for 2 of SANDERS!’ 13 points. SANDERS! also grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked 5 shots.
