The Milwaukee Bucks continued to look like a playoff basketball team last night after rolling past Portland 116-87, their 6th straight NBA win. 

Drew Gooden led the Bucks (21-24) with 19 points and Carlos Delfino added 16.  The six game streak is the longest current streak in the NBA and the longest for the Bucks since March of 2010.

The Bucks kept pace with the Knicks, who also won last night and maintained their half-game lead on the Bucks for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. 

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Trail Blazers with 21 points and 12 rebounds in the loss. 

The Bucks return to Milwaukee to host the Boston Celtics on Thursday night.
