The Milwaukee Bucks have started to find their groove as of late as the team is currently riding an 8-game winning streak. After a slow start to the beginning of the 2021-22 NBA season, which included a number of injuries to key players, the Bucks have quietly begun to climb up the standings in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks are beginning to look like the team of old, as the defending NBA champions are starting to make some serious noise around the league. They currently find themselves in fourth place in the East, but remain just 1.5 games behind the Brooklyn Nets for the best record in the conference. It seemed as if it was only a matter of time before Giannis and the Bucks caught fire, and it looks as if the defending NBA Champions are starting to get their groove back.
