The Milwaukee Bucks ended their recent six-game home stand with a win over the Orlando Magic on Thursday night, 118-114. The Bucks went a perfect 6-for-6 during that stretch, which now extends their home win streak to 15 games.
Needless to say, Milwaukee has been extremely difficult to beat at home.
Malik Beasley’s Message for Milwaukee Bucks Fans
After logging eight points, two triples, five rebounds, and two assists on Thursday, Milwaukee guard Malik Beasley was asked what he attributes this incredible win streak to. The veteran did not hesitate in crediting the home crowd for giving their team a much-needed boost every single night:
“It’s the home crowd energy, you know, the Sixth Man,” Beasley said. “We gotta have that community and getting out, so appreciate y’all. Let’s get it.”
Beasley’s shoutout prompted a loud round of cheers from the capacity crowd at the Fiserv Forum. The Magic pushed the Bucks in this one, and as always, the fans showed their unwavering support to help carry the team through.
Bucks Set to Embark on Road Trip
Beasley and the Bucks now head out to play four straight games on the road, starting Saturday against the New York Knicks. These two teams face off again on Christmas Day as part of the NBA’s slate of marquee matchups — something that Beasley himself is definitely looking forward to:
“Just to be able to play an NBA game on Christmas is a blessing, man,” he said. “In high school, I used to watch all the games, so now I’m part of it. We gotta get the win.”
"We want to be a championship team and that's what we got to do against these teams."

As Beasley said, playing on Christmas Day is a special moment for any player, but at the end of the day, the most important thing is for the Bucks to secure the win.
