Milwaukee Bucks eager to build after strong finish to season

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (AP) With the sting of their frantic but failed Game 6 comeback effort still fresh in their minds, the Milwaukee Bucks returned to their practice facility Friday morning to pack their things and head their separate ways.

The Bucks consider themselves a team on the rise in the Eastern Conference, a belief no doubt reinforced by a furious 14-4 run late in the season that propelled them to sixth place in the East and solidified by a strong, though inconsistent, effort against Toronto in the playoffs.

"We thought we were the better team," forward Giannis Antetokounmpo said. "We thought we could beat the Raptors and go to the second round. We feel like we got the Raptors' attention so hopefully next year ... we can go deeper in the playoffs."
