The Milwaukee Bucks have won seven of their last eight games against some tough teams, such as the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, and Phoenix Suns.
On Monday night, Milwaukee took down the Utah Jazz 124-115, which was a victory for more than one reason.

Not only did the Bucks beat one of the best teams in the league, they also snapped a 19-game losing streak in Utah.
The last time the team defeated the Jazz on their home court was back in October of 2001.
This feat proves that the current Bucks team are championship contenders again and far, far better than they were years ago.
Bucks To The Finals?
The Bucks won the Finals last year and they have their hearts set on doing it again this year.
Before they can make that happen, they will need to push through a crowded and tough Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee is currently in second place with a record of 43-26 but they are still two games behind the fierce Heat.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers, Bulls, and Boston Celtics are all trying to make their moves and storm up the charts.
Even the fifth-seed Celtics are just four games behind the Heat, proving that anything can happen and anyone can end up being number one when the season is finally done.
The Bucks will need to keep playing like they have been lately if they wish to secure the top spot.
Competition has rarely been so strong.
Then again, the Bucks have rarely been so strong too.
Will they be able to make it to the Finals again?
If they keep performing as they have been, there is no reason to think that’s not possible.
