The Bucks headed into Orlando's bubble with the best record in the NBA, and despite losing seven of their last 10 (including going 2-4 so far in the bubble) the Bucks were able to secure at least the Eastern Conference's best record.

Giannis is expected to be named MVP for the second straight year, Mike Budenholzer is a finalist for Coach of the Year, and multiple Bucks figure to be on the All-Defense teams, yet the Bucks continue to struggle down the stretch.

Why have the Bucks been struggling, and can it all be fixed before the playoffs?


Ryan McDonough, our Radio.com Sports NBA Insider/Former Suns GM, joined Bill on Tuesday to talk about the Bucks struggles, the NBA bubble and more:

- Is he worried about the Bucks yet? 

- Is it possible for some teams to not turn it on until the playoffs start?

- How much will not being in close games during the regular season affect the Bucks come playoff time? 

- Does the loss of Ben Simmons rule the Sixers out in the East?

- Why are the Heat such a tough matchup for the Bucks?
