Net’s defeat ensures that Milwaukee Bucks winning run is extended to fifteen games

The Milwaukee Bucks have extended their winning streak to 15 games after beating the Brooklyn Nets 118-104 on Tuesday. This streak is the longest in the NBA this season and the longest since the Phoenix Suns won 18 consecutive games last season. Despite trailing by 10 points at halftime, the Bucks managed to finish victorious in their game with the Brooklyn Nets. The team’s winning streak is also their longest since 2020 when they won 18 games in a row.

During their latest streak, the Bucks won 7 games away from Milwaukee, giving them the third-longest road winning streak in the league this season while also tying their franchise record for most consecutive road victories. After posting victory No. 14 on Sunday in their game against the Suns, the Bucks moved into the top spot in the East by percentage points when the Celtics fell to Philadelphia.

During the streak, Milwaukee was averaging 123 points on 48.8% shooting compared to 112.4 points on 45.6% shooting in their first 46 games. The Bucks went undefeated in February for the first time in franchise history and the fourth time overall that they’ve gone undefeated in a month (minimum three games). Giannis Antetokounmpo left two games early because of injuries during the streak and sat out another, but he has scored at least 30 points in 10 of 12 games during the streak.

The Bucks’ winning streak is the fourth-longest in franchise history, behind a 20-game streak by the 1970-71 squad, the aforementioned 18-game run in 2019-20, and a 16-game streak earlier in the 1970-71 season. Here are the game-by-game results of Milwaukee’s winning streak:
