The Bucks had a season-best 14 3-point FGs made and season-low 10 turnovers.

QUARTERLY REPORT – When the Bucks can maintain a lead or tie through three quarters, they are 6-2. In Wednesday's win at Houston, the Bucks won after trailing at the half for the first time this season. After being outscored by their opponent in the second half of the first five games this season, the Bucks have improved their play down the stretch, turning the tables and outscoring their opponents in the second half of five of the last six games.

  • Milwaukee won its third-straight game on the road after starting the season 0-8 away from the Bradley Center. In the last 10 seasons, the Bucks have won three-consecutive road games five times, with the longest streak at 6 games (2/5-2/27/10 and 1/6-1/23/03).

  • The Bucks ended the Rockets 7-game winning streak, and also snapped Houston's five-game home winning streak.

  • Wednesday's win marked the first time the Bucks have ever won in the Toyota Center, and their first win in Houston since 11/2/99, ending a streak of 11 losses.

  • It was also the first time this season that Milwaukee has won a game after trailing at the half.

  • For the second time this season, the Bucks have held four consecutive opponents to a 3-point shooting percentage of .273 or less (.273 @ NYK, .250 @ MIA, .273 vs. ATL, .258 @ HOU). Milwaukee's longest streak of this nature was eight games from 12/11/87 – 12/30/87.

  • After beating the Rockets, who were 10-7 prior to Wednesday night's game, the Bucks now have a better record against teams that are .500+ on game day (4-6) than sub-.500 teams (3-3).

  • Andrew Bogut has had at least one blocked shot in 10 games in a row this season (12/30/11-1/25/12). He is seventh in the NBA with 2.0 blocks per game.
