Last week the Bucks had back-to-back games in Los Angeles against the Lakers and the Clippers. They won both contests extending their current winning streak to 10 games.
With their win over the Clippers, the Bucks also upped their record this season to 6-1 in games played with no rest (the second game of back-to-back games). That is the second-best record in the league behind the Boston Celtics who are 7-1 in no rest games this season.
NBA teams usually play under .500 in no rest games
NBA teams typically do not play well on the second of two consecutive games. In fact, this season NBA teams are a combined 127-154, a .452 winning percentage, in games with no rest.
The Bucks have played well in no rest games over the past several seasons. They have had a winning record (above .500 winning percentage) in no rest games in five straight seasons and will likely make it a sixth straight season this year. They are currently 6-1 with six no rest games left on their schedule.
