Young Bucks learning during playoff woes

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE, WI (WXOW) - - The Chicago Bulls have their brooms at the ready, looking to sweep the Milwaukee Bucks right out of the NBA Playoffs. The Bucks meanwhile have their pencils out.

It's not a big surprise the Bucks are down 3-0 in the best-of-seven games series, as the Bulls were heavily favored coming into the postseason, and the Bucks are still a relatively up-and-coming squad with limited playoff experience.

Speculation aside, the Bulls can end the series Saturday afternoon at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. After letting an 18-point lead evaporate in the second quarter, and failing to execute game-winning shots at both the end of regulation and overtime, Milwaukee knew it let a big opportunity slip away in Game 3, ultimately won by Chicago 113-106 in double overtime.

But the Bucks are staying positive, and chalking it up as a learning experience.

"Just being in the playoffs, playing in overtime games. I think it's really going to help us in the future," guard Michael Carter-Williams said afterward.

Teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo said the team has to continue to work hard while gaining playoff experience.

"We've never been here before and playing these tough games in overtime, it gives us experience." he said. "We've just got to learn from our mistakes and try to get better and try to be better."

The Bucks will try to stave off elimination Saturday. Tip-off between the Bulls and Bucks is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
