The Milwaukee Bucks will look to extend their current win streak to 12 games with a win against the Chicago Bulls tonight in Chicago. A win would tie the longest win streak in the league this year currently held by the Brooklyn Nets, who had a 12-game win streak from December 7, 2022, to January 2, 2023.
With a win, the Bucks, who already own a nine-game win streak to start this season, would tie their sixth longest win streak in team history. The 1981-82 Bucks had a 12-game winning streak from January 26, 1982 to February 21, 1982.
