Milwaukee Bucks clinch playoff spot, likely seven seed

Milwaukee locked into 2018 playoffs

The Milwaukee Bucks have officially clinched a playoff spot.

The Bucks needed a loss from the Pistons Wednesday night, and Detriot delivered after they fell to Philadelphia 115-108.

The Bucks currently sit 42-36, tied with both the Heat and the Wizards, but because of tiebreakers, they own the eight seed. CBSSports currently predicts them to finish as the seven seed. 

Milwaukee was the eighth and final team to clinch a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, meaning the entire field is now set.

If the season ended today, the Raptors would the one seed and the Bucks first-round opponent.

Outside the Raptors, the Bucks could also potentially run into Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia or Indiana in the first round.

The Bucks have four more games left in the 2018 regular season, and only two home games against Brooklyn and Orlando.

Their final game of the season will be April 11 against Philadelphia on ESPN.
