The Story: The Mavericks will be looking to extend their winning streak to 13 games on Monday night. Dallas swept the two meetings against Milwaukee last season, but they were close games that went down to the very end. Defense will be the story of the night as the Bucks are averaging a league-low 91.5 points. The Mavs are among the league's best defensive teams, yielding 92.6 points per game and allowing opponents to shoot 43.2 percent.
