Bucks become fastest team ever to clinch playoff spot

Beating the Golden State Warriors' record by two days, the Milwaukee Bucks are the fastest team to clinch a playoff spot in NBA history.

The good news came when the Washington Wizards fell to the Chicago Bulls 126-117 on Sunday.

Milwaukee currently enjoys a 6.5 game lead in the Eastern Conference standings ahead of the Toronto Raptors for the top overall seed in the playoffs. Boston, the third-best team in the East, is nine full games back of the Bucks.

Only 26 games remain in the NBA regular season.

The Bucks get back to work Monday against the Wizards, the first of seven of their next nine games that will be played on the road.
