The new look 13-5 Milwaukee Bucks have a chance to add another trophy to their trophy case as the team advanced to the knockout stage of the league’s first ever in-season tournament. In addition to the trophy, each player still has the opportunity to win the $500,000 a piece that comes with winning the tournament. 

The Bucks went 4-0 in a group that featured the New York Knicks, the Miami Heat, the Charlotte Hornets, and Washington Wizards. Most impressive was their 46 point differential, which trails only the Los Angeles Lakers 74 point differential. 

The Bucks will now host the Knicks in a single-elimination quarterfinal on December 5th. With a win there, they’ll head to Las Vegas for the semifinals on December 7th where they’ll play the winner of the Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics quarterfinal.
