Right now, the Milwaukee Bucks are the most impressive team in the entire NBA.
They were already electric and amazing for much of the season but lately have been quite literally unstoppable.
The Bucks are in the midst of a powerful 16-game winning streak and currently lead the Eastern Conference.
After weeks of fighting hard and not giving up, the Bucks have surpassed the Boston Celtics and are the team to beat.

This is all part of their master plan: the Bucks are determined to not just win the East but also return to – and conquer – the NBA Finals.
The last two teams to win 15 consecutive games or more and then claim an NBA title in the same season were the 2014-15 Golden State Warriors and the 2013-14 San Antonio Spurs, according to ClutchPoints.
Of all the teams over the last few years, the Bucks have the best chance of doing what the Warriors and Spurs did.
When the season began, there were many people betting on the Bucks to go all the way.
This was for a number of reasons including the return of Brook Lopez and the improved health of Khris Middleton.
But really, the driving force behind Milwaukee’s chances was and still is Giannis Antetokounmpo, the two-time MVP and former Finals MVP who has been playing with deeper determination and drive than ever before.
Not only is he once again in the running to win MVP, but he could be leading his team back to the championship.
The Bucks are very satisfied with the number of consecutive wins they have but they really want one thing above all else: another ring.NEXT: Stephen A. Smith Names His Top 2 NBA Teams In The East
