The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as the Bucks marked their return from the All-Star break with a gritty victory over the Boston Celtics that equals their win total from last year.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, the Bucks take their season series with the Boston Celtics Thursday night, Khris Middleton gets the Zach Lowe treatment with a fantastic profile by the ESPN scribe, and much more.

After taking 81 games to get to 44 wins last year, it only took the Bucks 58 games to reach that same mark with their 98-97 victory over the Celtics at Fiserv Forum last night. Of course, there’s no shortage of factoids like that one in the kind of transcendent campaign the Bucks are crafting at this stage.
