Milwaukee Bucks Road Schedule in 2013-14
The Milwaukee Bucks are ready to set out across the nation this NBA season
as they take on some of the top teams in professional basketball. The Bucks narrowly missed out on finishing with a.500 record
in 2012-13, but were unable to make it to the postseason despite finishing third in the Central Division standings. The Bucks
have a road schedule loaded with tough teams this season, making for some fantastic match-ups for fans to enjoy. The team
will be traveling to Indianapolis, IN on several occasions to take on the Indiana Pacers, one of the top teams in the NBA.
The Pacers are a good bet to win the Central Division this season, and perhaps even end the Miami Heat's reign over the conference.
The Bucks will also be heading to Chicago this season to take on the Chicago Bulls. While the Bulls have had some tough breaks
this season, they remain a difficult matchup for any team. Catch the Bucks on the road this season against these opponents
and any other top teams in the East.
Milwaukee Bucks Team Info
The Milwaukee Bucks are a part of the Central
Division of the Eastern Conference, where their divisional opponents include the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons
and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bucks are rebuilding this season, so while they may not rack up big numbers in the wins column,
this team will be developing their young players and looking toward the future. This team made a big splash in the 2013 NBA
Draft by selecting Greek forward Giannis Antetokounmpo with their first-round selection. Labeled as "The Greek Freak" due
to his incredible physical capabilities, Giannis has a world of potential just waiting to be tapped by some of the top coaches
in the basketball world. The Bucks surprised quite a few people by electing to bring Giannis to the National Basketball Association
immediately, as some thought he could use at least one more year of seasoning overseas, but the Greek Freak has proven to
be more than ready to contribute on the NBA level. Currently Giannis is more of a highlight reel player than a consistent
performer, but his wide range of skills has scouts drooling over the player he could grow into. There have been comparisons
made to players like Kevin Durant and Paul George, and that should have Bucks fans extremely excited to see what happens with
this youngster. Another young player that has shown a lot of promise for Milwaukee is forward John Henson. Henson had himself
a solid collegiate career at the University of North Carolina, but many feared that he was too skinny to ever become more
than a bench player in the NBA. Henson is quickly showing that, despite still being rather thin physically, he is capable
of playing at a high level in the pro game. With Henson and Antetokounmpo on this roster, the Bucks have two young building
blocks to augment their roster around. Make sure to get out and see Milwaukee away from home this season to find out how this
youngsters deal with the pressures of playing in front of a hostile crowd.
When you head
out to see the Milwaukee Bucks on the road this season, you're sure to be amazed at how much fun it actually is. Attending
home games is always a great time, and loads of fans know that, but the die hard Bucks fans follow this team on the road regularly.
When you're there in the stands in an opposing team's arena, your cheers are heard by the Bucks much more clearly than at
the Bradley Center, so you are making more of an impact on the game. You'll love it when you see the Bucks take the lead late
in the game, much to the chagrin of many of the people sitting around you. Don't rub it in too much, but maybe a little.
Milwaukee Bucks Trivia
How did the Milwaukee Bucks acquire point guard Brandon Knight?
The answer is via
trade, as the Bucks shipped point guard Brandon Jennings to the Detroit Pistons in a deal that brought back Knight. The Bucks
were unwilling to meet Jennings' contract demands, so they moved him to Detroit via a sign-and-trade option, landing them
Knight, who was a Top 10 pick just a couple of years ago.
Milwaukee Bucks History
The Milwaukee Bucks
first hit the hardwood in 1968. The team found its first star performer when they drafted UCLA center Lew Alcindor, who would
later change his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The all-time great center would team up with Oscar Robertson in 1971 to give
the Bucks their only NBA Championship to date. The Bucks captured 13 division titles over the years and retired the numbers
of seven different players. This team is searching for their next championship, and taking steps to make the goal a reality
as soon as possible.
