Milwaukee-within the Milwaukee money dressing room next week for a 120-116 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, the players do not hang their heads.
They do not have time.
Their 18-game winning streak broken two victories shy of the franchise record of 20 in 1970-71 championship season. Now Milwaukee, the focus will shift to Thursday, when Eastern Conference leaders will welcome the West-led Los Angeles Lakers of the town.
“Yeah, obviously. This will be a good game, will be a test for us,”said Hala Rambo Antetokounmpo, who has made game-48 high points 14 rebounds and four assists Monday against the Mavericks. “The Lakers are one of the best teams in the League.
“We have to bring it to play good basketball, you must move the ball, but obviously, as a team,we don’t want to lose two in a row,”he said. “We’re just going to go out there and get a victory.”
Money has lost consecutive games in the regular season only once since Mike Budenholzer as head coach into the 2018-19 season. To avoid doing so a second time would mean playing one of the team leaders LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

“They’ve got two of the five members around the world, so…”Antetokounmpo said.
The Lakers have a top five offense, but they average in taking care of the ball ranking No. 17 in turnover percentage entering Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. Only blocks Mavs shoot well, but the Lakers almost no powerful from 3. They are more related to internal crime.
This is actually for the money the strength of the defense. Money allows 12. 9 field goals made per game inside the restricted area and only 54. 5%, in this region, the two Union the scope of the low point.
However, the Bucks beat the Lakers will need more than one show is on display Monday. Antetokounmpo is capable of stuffing the stat sheet as he showed in the loss. But he got little help. Arriving in Dallas, he scored or assisted 59 Milwaukee 82 points(72%), when he was on the floor, per ESPN Stats and Information Studies. He scored 48 points, the rest of the early made 23.
Money can’t afford to shoot 41. 9%from the field and 26. 8%, from 3 times. Some poor shooting on Monday can be attributed to the lack of good looks. According to the Second Spectrum trace data, money has been an effective field goal percentage(civilization%)of the 47. 1, although a Quantification of shot quality(qSQ)54. 1, this means that Milwaukee has a civilization%more than the expected quality of the attempt.
However, even if the open looks start falling on Thursday, the money can not rely as heavily on Antetokounmpo with James and Davis. They will need a total team effort. In 2019 All-Star Khris Middleton, a former Lakers Brook Lopez, Wesley Matthews and Marty DiVincenzo(enhanced in the absence of the injured Eric Bledsoe)have to make an impact.
“I mean, this is what this NBA. You can not be too up and down with each game,”said Kyle Korver, who reached the NBA Finals when the play with James in 2017 and 2018. “It is a roller coaster ride if you do so, and by the end, you’re just exhausted. We exhausted. This is a long season, but you must learn to establish habits.”
On Monday before the money has earned a habit. They are the ninth team in the past 20 seasons to win 18 consecutive games. Five of the previous eight reached the NBA Finals, with four winning the title. Although this is still our goal for Milwaukee, the money is not emphasized, there is even a showdown with the Lakers looming.

“After tonight, I think we just need to breathe, relax, enjoy, we won 18 games in a row,”money protected George Hill said. “This is something special. Then tomorrow in practice, (we will)begin to focus on the Lakers.”
Budenholzer see the Lakers as another great test, and announced,”we’ll be ready”soon Thursday.
Before exiting Fiserv Forum, Antetokounmpo expected a quiet trip home with his mom and his pregnant girlfriend, who is due to the birth of the couple’s first child in late February or early March.
While his 48 points were not enough on Monday–in fact, no player had made more of the loss, ending a streak of at least 15 a game-Antetokounmpo able to find the silver lining of failure.
“At the end of the day, my dad and my brother always say this:’to excel, to be better, you have to face adversity.’ It starts from the team leader to the last player. We have seen what we did wrong,”Antetokounmpo said. “I’ve got to strengthen it’s defense, playing way better defense to help my team, which is good. At the end of the day, you get better.”
