The Milwaukee Bucks will vie for their 17th straight win when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night.

The Bucks tied the second-longest winning streak in franchise history with a 127-112 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday. They are closing in on the franchise record of 20 straight wins, set during the team's 1970-71 championship season.

Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo sat out Wednesday's game because of soreness in his right quad. His status for Friday was unclear as of Thursday afternoon as Milwaukee prepares for back-to-back games against the Grizzlies and the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers (on Saturday).
