Golden State fell to 24-1. Its 28-game winning streak, when the counting the final four games of last season, came to a halt. The NBA's longest winning streak was 33 by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72 — and it was also snapped by Milwaukee.

Greg Monroe led the Bucks with 28 points.

Golden State, which averages 13 3-pointers a night, was just 6 of 26 from behind the arc.

Golden State trailed by double digits for much of the night and drew within a point a couple times.

Giddy Bucks fans at the packed Bradley Center erupted with cheers after the final buzzer.
