Another Bucks' Meltdown?

On March 6, 2003, the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the L.A. Clippers 92-86 to move ten games above .500 at 35-25. After that game, the Bucks won only 6 more games all season, while losing 16, to finish at 41-41 and complete the worst late-season collapse of any NBA team ever.

Well, the Bucks won't be able to match that incredible choke job down the stretch run of the '05-'06 NBA season, but they are doing a fine job of playing themselves clean out of the playoffs. Again. Back on April Fool's day, they defeated Indiana to move to 37-36 and within a half game of the #5 seed in the Eastern Conference. Since that time, they have dropped four games in a row to fall to the #7 seed and they have only a 1 game edge over Chicago and Philadelphia, who are currently tied for the 8th and final spot.

Over that four-game losing streak, the Bucks have appeared uncertain of what the definition of defense is, much less how to actually play any on the court.
