With the Milwaukee Bucks’ own win streak having come to an end in their last outing, they’ll now look to slow down the red-hot Sacramento Kings on Sunday.
The Milwaukee Bucks’ franchise record tying run of seven straight win to start the season may have come to an end on Thursday night against the Boston Celtics, but heading into their first Western Conference trip of the season in the coming days, Mike Budenholzer’s team have little time to feel sorry for themselves.
Prior to getting that road trip started on Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, the West comes to Milwaukee in the form of the red-hot Sacramento Kings’ first visit to Fiserv Forum.
An afternoon contest that many Bucks fans may have dismissed as little more than a formality prior to the season could now prove to be anything but as the Kings will carry the league’s second longest active win streak into Sunday’s game.
Off the back of five wins in a row, and six wins from their first nine games, the Kings are proving that they at least have some young talent worthy of patience as they continue what’s already one of the NBA’s longest running rebuilds.
The Bucks will hope to re-establish the imperious offensive play that had marked their season prior to losing to the Celtics, and to continue their undefeated run at their new arena, as the Bucks have won every game at Fiserv Forum since moving in for the first time in the preseason.
With all of that in mind, let’s take a look at three of the elements most worthy of your attention when the Bucks and Kings get underway on Sunday afternoon at Fiserv Forum.
