Bucks make NBA history with win in first half finale

The Bucks incredible run this season is more than just fun. It's officially historic.

O.J. Mayo scored 21 points and Brandon Knight added 20 as the Bucks beat the Sacramento Kings 111-103 Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The win is the Bucks' 30th of the season, making NBA history as the first team to ever double their win total from the previous season before the All-Star Break.

Knight scored 10 consecutive points to close the third quarter and spark the Bucks to their eighth win in nine games. Most Bucks players get the next week off as the NBA's focus shifts to All-Star festivities. Knight is in the Skills Competition and Giannis Antetokounmpo is taking part in the Slam Dunk Contest.

The Bucks have a solid grip on the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference with a 30-23 record. On this same date a year ago, the Bucks were 9-42 and had won two games in the previous month and a half.
