It may be late February, but the Bucks are guaranteed to play basketball after their regular season ends April 15.
Thanks to a 126-117 win by the Bulls over the Wizards, the Bucks have a good enough record to earn them a spot in the postseason no matter what happens the rest of the season.
WTMJ’s Jay Sorgi reports this will set a new NBA record for the earliest date an NBA team earned a playoff spot. The previous record was set by the Golden State Warriors in the 2016-17 season, when they earned their playoff spot on February 25.
As a reminder, the Bucks are offering fans a waiting list to purchase playoff tickets after season ticket holders have their chance.
