MILWAUKEE -- Bucks frenzy is on full display with anticipation the highest it's been in a long time.

Despite losing to the Nets Saturday, they'll still be on top of the NBA heading into the postseason.

The team has the best record in the NBA, guaranteeing them the number-one-seed in the playoffs, and fans like Mike Kowalski couldn't be more excited.

"It's fun to watch this," Kowalski said.

It's been decades since the Bucks got anywhere close to a championship.

They only won once and that was back in 1971, so fans are hungry for that title.

"We've sat through the dark of what the Bucks were and always had faith, but now to see them get to where they're now is pretty incredible," one fan said.

They credit the new owners, coach and of course Giannis Antetokounmpo, but it's more than him.

"The team has really come together," David Wiers said.

"They can rebound. They can play defense, it's not just offense," Kowalski added.

The timing seems perfect with a new arena and a growing downtown.

"With the restaurants and just the infrastructure, I mean it all goes hand in hand," one fan said.

"I would suggest it might be the greatest renaissance the city's ever seen," another fan added.

Having that number-one-seed home court advantage in the playoffs will make a difference.

"There's no doubt about it. We've seen that in years past," Wiers said.

Even though fans don't want to take anything for granted, they're keeping their eyes on the prize.

"I'm confident. I expect them to be in the finals," Kowalski said.

"Have the faith man. Milwaukee all the way," Moran Hetzel added.

The Bucks have two more games before the playoffs start next weekend.
