Venue: Verizon Center

 

Milwaukee Bucks

Pinned in the bottom of the Central Division charts, Milwaukee Bucks seem to not be learning from their mistakes. Their tactics have just been a single story told in different versions. As per 10 games, the team only managed to succeed twice, with a winning percentage of only 0.200.

 

Turnovers are Milwaukee’s typical dilemma, coughing the ball several times in just a single game. This was evident in their combat against Portland Trail Blazers, where they let loose of the ball 19 times—which include seven in the last quarter.

 

While coach Larry Drew is consistent of his claim that his team has a small margin of error, their recent plights indicate that they are swimming against the currents and struggling to top-out their opponents’ scoring skills.

 

Washington Wizards

A disappointing 2-7 start to the 2013-14 season amassed worries for the Washington Wizards. New coach Randy Wittman displayed slightly more underwhelming performance than what Ernie Grunfeld once did. But despite their coach’s buckles—and very aware of his shortcomings—the Wizards remain supportive of their new head.

 

The Wizards are currently ranked near the bottom of the Southeast Division table, based on four wins out of 11 games. Stepping up amongst the players would be crucial at this very stage of the tournament, especially with the playoffs now fast approaching. Nene and Bradley Beal are keeping positive nuance to their team’s fate in the competition, but are under pressure of delivering the same or even better performances.
