The Bucks have continued their tanking process this past week by doing exactly what is expected of them — losing games.

Milwaukee has the worst record in the NBA, sliding along the bottom of the standings with a 13-56 record. They have lost six games in a row, four in the past week.

While it may seem they have given up completely, the Bucks have put forth some effort. Each of their last three losses have been by less than 10 points.

So while they are certainly tanking, they are at least attempting to mask it.

In the upcoming week, the Bucks will travel to California to face the Sacramento Kings and the Los Angeles Clippers. They will return home to face the Lakers. They will do so without guard Nate Wolters, who broke his hand against Golden State on Thursday.

Since the Kings and Lakers are also in the tanking sweepstakes, it will be interesting to see how the matchups play out next week.
