Milwaukee- The Bucks win against the Hornets guarantees them a winning record for the first time since the 2009-'10 season. Milwaukee (42-39) clinched a playoff spot for the first time in two years, but they're not happy with just making it to the postseason. Veteran guard and first-year Buck Jason Terry is in the playoffs for the 12th straight season. He says that 50 wins is the unofficial sign that you've "made it" as a franchise, but the Deer are definitely moving in the right direction.
"I'm proud of our guys, and we have a ways to go," Terry said after Monday's win. "We're just going to stop because we're in the playoffs. We have a goal that we set out before the season, and we can do so by taking care business in our first match-up."
Bucks head coach Jason Kidd was Terry's teammate on the Dallas Mavericks 2011 NBA title team, and he agrees that Milwaukee has something brewing with one of the youngest teams in the League.
"This is the start of the process of trying to change the culture here and have a winning atmosphere," Kidd said. "It started with our record, but it also starts with that group in that locker room. They worked extremely hard to put themselves in this position."
