BOGUT BRIEFING - Bucks center Andrew Bogut recorded his 16th double-double of the season Saturday with 17 points and 18 rebounds. Bogut also tied his career-high with seven blocked shots in the win. The Bucks have gone 7-3 this year when Bogut scores 17 or more points, and 3-0 when he records either 17+ points and 15+ rebounds, or 17+ points and five or more blocks.

15/5/5=W (92.9 PERCENT OF THE TIME) - With Andrew Bogut's 17 pt/18 reb/7 block performance Saturday, the Bucks improved to 13-1 when a player records a 15/5/5 stat line. The Bucks are 3-1 when a player (Bogut on all four occasions) records 15+ points, 5+ rebounds and 5+ blocks and 11-0 when a player has 15+ points, 5+ rebounds and 5+ assists. Brandon Jennings leads the team with six 15/5/5 performances.

KILLER Ds - Milwaukee's "Killer Ds" of Carlos Delfino and Keyon Dooling have combined to produce 23.5 points (94), 6.3 rebounds (25), 10.6 assists (42) and 2.5 steals (10) over the last four games as the Bucks have gone 3-1 in that stretch. The duo has 4.3 triples per game over that stretch and have combined for a 43.6 percent success rate from 3-point land (17-39). The pair has combined for a 4.20:1 assist to turnover ratio over those last four. Delfino has scored in double digits in the past three, while Dooling has had five or more assists in the past four.

THE DEJECTION OF REJECTION - With seven blocks on Saturday night, Andrew Bogut extended his string of consecutive games with at least one rejection to 17, which ties JaVale McGee for the seventh longest streak of its kind this season. It's Bogut's second 10-plus game streak with a block this season (he had a 13 game stretch from November 9 - December 18). Bogut has now blocked 558 shots for his career and is closing in on Ervin Johnson (586) for third in franchise history. Bogut has had six games this year with five or more blocks, which also ties McGee for the most five-plus block performances this season. The Aussie big-man is also closing in on sixth place in franchise history in rebounds as he has 3,435 and Sidney Moncrief stands at 3,447. He now stands at 4,721 in career points and is looking to move past Quinn Buckner (4,738) for 18th place.

THREE-POINT PROFICIENCY - In the past four games, the Bucks have connected on 42.0 percent of their 3-point field goal attempts and have made 7.3 3- pointers per game.
