Last two Suns bucks fast break transition buckets Phx up 51-37 206 left 1st half
Blazers play the Bucks tomorrow in Milwaukee. Coincidentally the last team to beat the Hawks.
The Hawks are the 2nd team to surpass its win total from last season (38). The Bucks did it on Dec. 29.
Mavs (30-17, .638) are the NBA's best team that does not have an All-Star. Suns and Bucks are only other winning teams without All-Star.
So Saturday's game at BC matches two PGs snubbed for All-Star Game; Blazers' Damian Lillard and Bucks' Brandon Knight. Interesting.
