Eric Bledsoe Available For Bucks In Game 2

5:02pm: Bledsoe will play for the Bucks tonight, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium (Twitter link).

4:11pm: Starting Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe remains a game-time decision for Milwaukee’s second tilt against the Heat tonight, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel (Twitter link). “We’ll know closer to tip-off,” head coach Mike Budenholzer said of Bledsoe’s health status.

A strained right hamstring kept Bledsoe out of the first game in the Bucks’ second-round series on Monday, a 115-104 loss to fifth-seeded Miami. Sharpshooting veteran George Hill started in Bledsoe’s stead, though the team clearly missed Bledsoe’s perimeter defense.

In 36 minutes, Hill scored 8 points on 2-of-5 shooting from the floor and had as many turnovers as he did assists (four). Hill’s Miami counterpart Goran Dragic netted 27 points and proved a crucial contributor to the Heat’s surprise Game 1 victory.

In the Bucks’ first-round 4-1 defeat of the Magic, Bledsoe averaged 11.6 PPG and 6.6 APG (a club high) while playing his typical excellent defense.

    Doesn’t seem to be helping them much.

    Everyone overlooked Miami in the east.

    Bucks never got their mojo back especially on D, there is no home court advantage and they are playing a team that matches up with them. Three strikes!
