By STEVE MEGARGEE AP Sports Writer
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks believe they can build on the momentum they established while producing the NBA's best record before the pandemic-imposed hiatus.
Milwaukee has an NBA-leading 53-12 record and is virtually assured of entering the postseason as the Eastern Conference's top seed.
The Bucks return from a 4 ½-month layoff July 31 when they face the Boston Celtics at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
The Bucks are seeking their first NBA title since 1971.
