The Milwaukee Bucks have owned the distinction of the NBA's best team by record for much of the 2019 season. Behind the work of a deep team led by star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have now recorded 45 wins by double-digits this season.
Seven other teams in history have achieved this mark in a season prior to the Bucks this year, and all seven of them went on to win the NBA Finals.
As you can see, two teams from Golden State's current dynasty (2014-15, 2016-17) made the list as well, which is ironic because the Bucks will most likely have to go through this season's iteration of that dynasty in order to achieve their ultimate goal of an NBA title.
Only time will tell if the Bucks can extend this impressive historic trend, but with the heavy competition at the top of each conference, it should be just as difficult this year as it has ever been.
