Bucks host Lakers, inching closer to East's best record

The Milwaukee Bucks haven't finished the regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference since the 1973-74 season. They can take another step toward ending that drought when they host the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

The Bucks entered the week three games ahead of the Toronto Raptors for the best record in the East. Milwaukee missed a chance to lower its magic number when it lost 130-125 to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, but the Raptors also lost that day, 110-107 to the Detroit Pistons.

"Tough games like this are going to help us in the future moving forward in the playoffs because every game is going to be like tonight," Bucks leading scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo told reporters after the loss. "Hopefully, we learn from it and when we're in the same situation in the future we can react better."
