The Mavericks lost to an Eastern Conference opponent for the second game in a row and had too little too late to pull out a win. For a team that went 27-3 against the East last season, it has to sting a bit losing to teams they are supposed to beat. The Bucks improves to 22-5 (.814) all time against the Mavericks when they play in Milwaukee. It is the Mavs' worst franchise road record against an Eastern Conference team and is only second to the Lakers, who hold a 47-10 advantage (.824) when playing the Mavericks in Los Angeles.
The Bucks improve to 7-4 while the Mavs drop to 9-4.
