Only once in the Steve Kerr era warriors have been swept by a team in the regular season. And it was not San Antonio Spurs or Boston Celtics or Cleveland Cavaliers or Oklahoma City Thunder or any of the most logical candidates.
It was Indiana Pacers who last season won in Oakland and Indianapolis to sweep the season series.
Bucks is able to achieve the same performance on Friday when warriors finish their five-game traffic with their only visit to Milwaukee this season.
The coverage of the NBC Sports Bay Area begins at 5:30 pm with Warriors Pregame, followed by tipoff from the Fiserv Forum.
The warriors (17-9) were shot by Bucks, 134-111, November 8 at the Oracle Arena. Stephen Curry maintained a light game in the third quarter, which caused him to miss 1
1 matches. The warriors were down at 26 (95-69) when Curry left the game.
The bucksna (16-7) are the best way since 1990-91. They have 11 double-digit wins and lead the league in points (121.1 points per game), point differential (10.7) and rebounding (50.3). They also kill an NBA-best 14.6 triples per game.

Power forward Jonas Jerebko is streaking. He scored every shot in Atlanta on Monday and again on Cleveland on Wednesday: 8-in-8 field goals, 3-of-3 3 pointers and 4-in-4 free throws. … Milwaukee’s length makes it unlikely that the Quinn Cook guard gets more than a dozen minutes ….

If the warriors do not do a much better job of defending their strong units in the color, they may be in trouble. … All five starters are willing 3-point shooters, with Brogdon (49.4 percent) and Middleton (41.9) who are particularly dangerous. … The most explosive binoculars are Guard Pat Connaughton and Ilyasova. … Guard Matthew Dellavedova, a Saint Marys College product, is also included in the proposed trade with the cavalry.
