@ Cleveland Cavaliers, Nov. 29

The Bucks didn’t face a great deal of adversity over their 18-game winning streak earlier in the season, but they did come under fire back on November 29 against the Cleveland Cavaliers in what ended up being a 119-110 win.

After having led by as much as 22 early in the third period, the Bucks’ control of the game was gradually tested as the Cavaliers mounted a furious second half comeback.

As he usually does when the Bucks are under siege, Hill came alive to spark the Bucks and gain a hold of their dwindling lead late in the third quarter with a run of back-to-back threes as well as a nice, shifty driving layup to stop the bleeding and bring his scoring up to double figures.

The 12-year veteran’s all-around contributions forced head coach Mike Budenholzer’s hand as the reigning NBA Coach of the Year rolled with Hill over Bledsoe to give the stability they needed to fend off the Cavs and their final push late to secure their 10th straight victory at the time.

Hill finished with 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting (4-for-6 from three, 2-for-2 from the foul line), four assists, two rebounds and was a +9 in over 22 minutes of play.

Hopefully, if the NBA season is able to continue, Hill will be able to add to his glorious run all year long.
