Will 2-1 start lead Bucks to a playoff berth in 2012-13 season?

Will 2-1 start lead Bucks to a playoff berth in 2012-13 season?

Hyped by on November 8, 2012 Website:

Getting off to a good start is imperative in any sport. Although three games may not be a representative sample of what might transpire over the next six months in the NBA, maybe we can offer some optimistic hope for this year’s Milwaukee Bucks fans with a little stats analysis from their first week in the 2012-13 season.

For the Milwaukee Bucks, their first three games included a decisive win over perennial playoff contender Boston in the opener, a last-second victory over a young, up-and-coming Cleveland squad, and a loss to a Memphis Grizzlies team that has made the playoffs the last two seasons.

The 2-1 start is the 23rd time in the Bucks 44-year history that they have started the season winning two of their first three games. They have now been 0-3 in three seasons; 1-2 in 12 seasons; 2-1 in 23 seasons; and 3-0 in seven seasons.

Here’s a brief look at how each three-game start has played out in the Bucks franchise history.
