In the end, the Hawks just had too much for the Milwaukee Bucks. They scratched, clawed, and fought, but size will nearly always win out in a seven game series, and it did in this one. The Bucks got two more wins in this series than I thought they would, but couldn’t quite muster a closing win.
But that doesn’t take anything away from an outstanding season by the Milwaukee Bucks. If the team can get another big body over the summer, and there are big bodies available in this summer’s draft, the team should be in excellent shape to contend next season — possibly for the Eastern Conference.
We shall see. A larger retrospective will be forthcoming.
