Magic number drops to one as Bucks beat Nets 131-121

Any Milwaukee Bucks win or Toronto Raptors loss will clinch a #1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs for the Bucks after Milwaukee defeated the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night, 131-121.

Toronto's win on Monday means the Bucks can't clinch the best record in the NBA quite yet, but Milwaukee did achieve win number 58 on the season, the sixth-most wins in a season in franchise history.

Eric Bledsoe scored 29 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo added 28 for the Bucks, while D'Angelo Russell had 28 for the Nets. There's a chance the Bucks and Nets could match up in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

Milwaukee is back in action Thursday night at Philadelphia.
