    6 - Andrew Bogut's number, the name of the cheering section he created, "Squad Six" and his ranking in single-season block totals as his 175 put him behind Karem Abdul-Jabbar (238 and 212, 1973-74 and 1974-75 respectively), Elmore Smith (238, 1975-76), Harvey Catchings (184, 1980-81) and Alton Lister (177, 1982-83) in the franchise record books.

    34 - Points for Brandon Jennings in his playoff debut, two off the NBA rookie record set by Derrick Rose in 2009 and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1970. His 34 points were the most by a Buck in the playoffs since Michael Redd had 40 in 2006.

    39 - Consecutive games with at least one block for Andrew Bogut, the longest streak since Marcus Camby had 51 in 2007-08.

    • His 45 second half points were the most scored in a half since Kobe Bryant had 55 on January 22, 2006.
    • The 55-point game came on the heels of a 32-point effort against Denver, making him the first Bucks rookie to score 30-plus points in consecutive games since Glenn Robinson on February 8 and 14 in 1995.

    89 - Brandon Jennings' starts in 2009-10 (regular season and playoffs). He and Luke Ridnour are the only players to appear in all 89 games. Jennings' 89 starts are the most for a Bucks rookie since Marques Johnson also had 89 in 1977-78 (80 regular season and nine postseason).
