Bucks set dubious mark: franchise-worst 63 losses
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Bucks have set a dubious record in this futile season.
The NBA’s worst team lost for the 63rd time in falling 102-98 to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night. It sealed the Bucks’ fate as the biggest loser in the franchise’s 45-year history.
The Bucks will likely have one of the top four choices in this year’s NBA draft. Team officials have said they didn’t go into the season with the purpose of intentionally ”tanking” to improve their position.
General manager John Hammond made a flurry of offseason moves, though injuries and off-court issues quickly derailed any chance the team had of competing in the weak Eastern Conference. Some of moves were positive, and many others didn’t work out.
Milwaukee is 14-63 on the season.
