The Bucks currently have a 12 game winning streak through the start of the NBA season. They have a chance to make history with the longest winning streak in Bucks history. The longest win streak in Bucks history is 20 games back in 1971. To break this streak this month, they’ll have to take down both LA teams, the Clippers, and the Lakers, but even that schedule, this year’s Bucks have an excellent shot at the record.

On Monday they defeated the New York Knicks 132-88 for their 12th straight win. Their win streak has been hugely impacted by the reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s had a double-double in 12 out of 13 games. He has had seven games with at least 25 points and 15 rebounds.

Giannis is still a clear-front runner for winning the MVP for a second consecutive season. He is the best player on the best team with the best record in the NBA. Giannis is ranked second for most points with 30.8, fourth in rebounding with 13.4 a game and he’s assisting more than 32 percent of Milwaukee’s shots. He is also averaging 1.3 blocks, and 1.4 steals a game.

Giannis has also started to knock down his threes this season. He is shooting 30 percent from three, which is a career-high for him. He is 80 percent in the restricted area as well. Giannis leads the bucks to a nine-game win streak without one of his best players in Khris Middleton.



The Baltimore Ravens are on a hot streak this season and their QB is having an MVP-type season. They are lead by front-runner for MVP Lamar Jackson. Their record is 10-2, and they have been on an eight-game win streak, beating the 49ers, Rams, and Patriots this season. 

Lamar is completing 66 percent of passes, has 25 touchdowns and only 5 interceptions this season. Also, he has 977 rushing yards this season bound to break the record of Michael Vick how has 1,039 in one season.
