In a vacuum, any Eastern Conference team is going to be satisfied with a 3-3 road trip through the West, but we don’t live in a vacuum. On the one hand, with the defeat on Thursday dropping the Bucks to 3 games behind 2-seeded Philadelphia, after a dispiriting loss on Tuesday, no one should be happy with 3-3. On the other hand, no one should be distraught with 3-3. The extenuating factors the Bucks dealt with—their MVP candidate missed multiple games and their newly-acquired defensive stopper missed all of them—makes 3-3 even sound lucky. Plus, it was a point or two away from being a 4-2 trip.
