No team has allowed fewer opposing players to reach 30 points than the Milwaukee Bucks, and Kevin Durant's third-lowest career average is against them.
The Bucks and Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder also lead the NBA in blocks as they meet for the first time Saturday night in Milwaukee.
Only six times has a player scored 30 in a game this season against Milwaukee (35-36), which joins Indiana and San Antonio as teams to allow that few 30-point performances.
Now the Bucks will get their first look this season at Durant, averaging a league-best 28.3 points. The superstar, however, has averaged 23.3 points against Milwaukee in eight games.
Durant enters off a spectacular 36-point effort on 13-of-19 shooting in Friday's 101-93 loss at Minnesota.
The Thunder's lead over Denver in the Northwest Division was cut to 3 1/2 games and they fell 2 1/2 games behind San Antonio for the Western Conference's best record.
"We'll be fine," Durant said. "You know, just a little bump in the road."
This matchup features the league's top shot-blocking teams, with Oklahoma City (53-20) averaging 7.5 and Milwaukee 7.0.
The Thunder's Serge Ibaka and Bucks' Larry Sanders are in a tight race to finish first in the NBA in blocks. Ibaka blocked five shots Friday and is averaging 3.00 to take a slight lead over Sanders, who is at 2.98 per game.
Sanders helped key Thursday's 113-103 victory over the Lakers. He had a career-high 21 points and 13 rebounds for his team-best 23rd double-double.
"Larry was great, really active," coach Jim Boylan said. "There was a lot of communicating going on."
The Bucks snapped a four-game losing streak. They are in good shape to reach the playoffs as they hold the East's eighth-best record, but want to be on the upswing entering the postseason.
"I've never been in the playoffs, it would be a great experience for me," said Sanders, who is averaging 11.7 rebounds over his last 10 games. "But from all the experience we have here, you want to gain momentum for the playoffs."
