The Bucks sit at 47-8 with 27 games left, on the door step of history - a 23-4 record to close the season would give the Bucks 70 wins, which only the 95-96 Bulls and 15-16 Warriors have accomplished. The Bucks also have championship aspirations, as Giannis Antetokounmpo is a free agent after next season. Should the Bucks go for 70 wins if it's in reach, or start resting players to gear up for a championship run?


Steve Novak, former Bucks/Golden Eagles Forward and current Fox Sports Wisconsin Analyst, joined Bill on Friday to give us his thoughts on the question, and to talk all things Bucks as they face off against the Sixers on Saturday:

- What does he make of Joel Embiid’s comments on being the best player in the NBA?

- Once the Bucks lock up the first seed, should they be trying to win 70 games, or start load management?

- Should the Bucks even be worrying with regular season stats, or focusing on the playoffs?

- What does he think of the job Mike Budenholzer has done as a coach?
