The Milwaukee Bucks kicked off the NBA In-Season Tournament with a 110-105 win over the New York Knicks on Friday and are prepping to travel to New York to take on the Nets.
It was definitely a step in the right direction, especially after the upsetting loss to the Toronto Raptors. However, the season is just starting, the Bucks are working out their kinks, adjusting to the new coaching staff and new players like Damian Lillard being on the court.
Bobby Portis Says Take Bucks Season One Day at a Time.
Bobby Portis only played 16 minutes in Friday’s contest and scored four points, but he spoke with media on Sunday after practice to talk about taking the season one day at a time, and how a slow start affects the team and himself personally. Portis said there’s going to be highs and lows in the game of basketball.
“You just gotta try and win the day, you feel me? That’s the biggest thing we can do on a daily basis is taking it one day at a time, building our comradery, our chemistry, and just getting better on a daily basis.”

It’s been a slow start for the Bucks, who have talked about all offseason about coming and winning a championship again after a two year drought. It’s going to be a total team effort, Portis said that there was a lot to learn from the first five games, things they can improve on and continue to drill at practice to better themselves. He also talked about how many teams are welcoming new players to their roster, and working with them is something everyone has to get used to.
“You just can’t throw guys on the court and expect it to work Day 1, this ain’t 2k.”
