Bucks bring energetic defensive to Wednesday game against Denver

The Milwaukee Bucks will host Denver Wednesday.

And the Bucks hope to continue their best defensive start in team history. They've only given up 85 points a game, and they're the only NBA team not to give up 100 in a game yet.

Milwaukee has had a reputation of being a poor defensive team in recent years. But coach Scott Skiles says he's turning it around with hard work and preparation.

He says the players are getting good at his defensive schemes they're doing a good job of contesting shots and they're pounding the defensive boards.

Skiles says he has a more energetic team than a year ago, when the Bucks gave up just over 100 points a game.

Milwaukee is 3-2, with a two-game winning streak.
