The host Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers, opponents Saturday night, could not be on two more different trajectories.

The host Bucks seek to extend the best start in the 52-year history of the franchise. Milwaukee won its 17th straight game on Friday, 127-114 at Memphis, maintaining an already sizable lead atop the Eastern Conference.

Reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 37 points -- 17 in the fourth quarter -- and grabbed 11 rebounds in the win. He is on a career-best pace in both statistical categories.
