Three losses in their last four outings. This is now the record of the Milwaukee Bucks. On the night of Saturday to Sunday, as part of the NBA regular season, the reigning champions once again bowed, this time on the floor of the Charlotte Hornets (114-106).

In fact, the Miami-based franchise even offered the luxury of matching, again, a three-point franchise record (22/44).

Frenchman of the Night: Killian Tillie (Memphis Grizzlies)

They were only three French on the NBA floors, as part of the regular season, on the night of Saturday to Sunday. And two of them even clashed, at the very beginning of the evening, and more precisely in the meeting between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies (108-123).
