This meant that Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co clinched a playoff berth on 23 February, which is now earliest date on the calendar in NBA history that a team has entered the playoffs.
The playoffs are scheduled to begin on 18 April, which is almost two months away.
The Bucks have a monstrous 48-8 regular season win-loss record, leading the Western Conference and the league. Their current run is on pace to bag them 70 wins before the season wraps up, a mark that has been achieved by only two teams previously.
Their net rating of 11.8 is the league's best, and the squad also boasts a league-best points differential of +12.4 so far. The Milwaukee Bucks also lead the NBA in defensive rating (101.9) and are third in terms of offensive rating (113.7).
Giannis Antetokounmpo is on his way to become a back-to-back MVP award winner. He has blistering averages like 30 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists, while playing just 30.9 minutes per contest this season.Published 24 Feb 2020, 11:22 IST
