Still the only team in the NBA to not lose consecutive games this season, the Milwaukee Bucks will put that record to the test tonight.
The Bucks will close out their six-game home stand against the Utah Jazz. The Bucks won the first four games before Saturday night’s 123-116, to the Toronto Raptors.
Toronto (30-12) moved back ahead of the Bucks (27-11) in winning percentage with a victory Sunday and are a game ahead of Milwaukee.
The Bucks have won nine of their last 11 games, while the Jazz has won two straight and six of its last nine.
Giannis Antetokounmpo went off for 43 points and 18 rebounds in the loss Saturday and has won Eastern Conference Player of the Month for both October/November and December.
Bucks reserve D.J. Wilson will sit out the game with a hip pointer that kept him out of the lineup for the second half Saturday.
Donovan Mitchell leads Utah (20-20) in scoring at 20.2 points per game, while Rudy Gobert averages 14.8 points and 12.2 rebounds.
